Every home is a house, but not every house is a home. It doesn’t matter how big or small your place is, if it’s located in the countryside or in a city, expensive or cheap… what matters is the inside. That can be about people and/or pets, but also the way you’ve decorated it. The latter is where vidaXL comes in, by offering a large assortment of trendy and affordable furniture. So, if you’ve just moved or want to make your current house cosier, keep reading! We’ll share 5 tips of how you can make your house feel like a home in no time.
1. Create an interior where you can relax and unwind
What this looks like is different for everyone, apart from having comfortable furniture. A large sofa to lay down on and a comfortable armchair are a must-have. Add cushions and a throw to make them extra inviting and comfortable.
2. Adding textiles
One of the most important elements that make a room feel soft and welcoming are textiles. Think of upholstered furniture in fabric, pouffes, rugs, curtains, cushions, and throws. To make your house feel like a home, try to create a mix of things you’ve found on your travels or that have been in the family for a long time and new items. Another advantage of textiles is that they help to mute sound, like the echo you hear in an empty space.
3. Functional but necessary: storage space
Make sure to add plenty of storage space. You can have some clutter here and there, but don’t go overbroad. As soon as you start tripping over items on the floor or your dining table disappears under piles of papers, toys, and books, it’s time to add some storage space.
Something that’s often overlooked is the impact of lighting. We all know the effect of fluorescent tubes in a fitting room… but that’s not all. The colour of your light bulb, the light output, where you place the lamp all make a difference in changing your house into a home!
5. Personal items
Adding personal items in your interior is like the finishing touch in making your house a home. These items tell a story about who you are and what you like. Display your nicest items in an open cabinet or on shelves.
