Making Your House As Cozy As Possible

Making Your House As Cozy As Possible

You’ve bought your new house and you’re understandably delighted! Now it’s time to make it officially yours by putting your own special touch on it. How can you do that I hear you ask? Well let me tell you.

The walls and floors are the main aspects to first sort out when decorating your house. This is going to be what your rooms are known for the foreseeable future so it’s a big decision. Your new house is going to bring the nosey neighbours or friends and family around so make sure they all leave with a positive outlook. What colour are you wanting the walls? Will you be using wallpaper or paint? It’s a decision that you can’t take lightly and one that could haunt you if you get it wrong. With flooring, the possibilities are endless and again you need to discuss with your loved one about the best type of material for each room whether they be made from wooden slats, marble or carpets. Each one can provide a different homely feel and it depends what you feel most comfortable with. Think of the whole outlook on the house before making a judgement. Does a farmhouse mix with marble? A bungalow go with wooden slats?

Once all this has been done, then you’re at the stage where you can pick and choose your own furniture. Again take into account the room and the function of this room when you are decorating it. Are you a kitchen stool type of family? How many sofas and armchairs should there be in the living room and what material should they be made out of? Are bunk beds suitable for the kids or have they grown out of that stage now and deserve separate rooms? Already, you can see the number and variety of questions you will have to ask yourself in the process of making your house a home.

The fact that you’re never happy with your home is a common one. There’s always something to do, something that you want to achieve. Whether it be trying to extend the garden or clearing out the garage. So how about a conservatory? Yes, it will be more money out of your pocket and who really wants the builders in 24/7 but think about the end results. As quick as a flash, you’ll be able to sit in your new room and look outside at the beautiful sunrise and sunset from a room that wholly accepts the summer sun. Not only will it make it more well lit but also more airy, two  important aspects of a well loved home. If you want to include a welcome extra of underfloor heating in that dream too, then why the hell not. It will be a blessing during those cold winter months but at Christmas time, remember not to leave chocolate presents on the floor as it could get messy. Eventful memories indeed for this young writer. But happy ones.

Sleeping In Luxury

Everyone loves the feeling of sinking into a sumptuous bed made up of Egyptian cotton bed sheets and the plumpest fluffiest pillows. Treat your guests to a super luxe hotel-style experience by investing in high-quality bedding and plush pillows. Choose neutral shades of soft light and dark gray to create an elegant room that will appeal to all. On the bedside cabinets leave a fresh bottle of water for each guest, favorite books and a couple of current magazines in case they want to read. Make sure that curtains or blinds have a black out feature so your guests are sure to get a sound night of sleep. And also be sure to invest in elegant bedside lamps and also a main light with a dimmer switch for added ambiance. Invest, as well, in an ornate full-length mirror so they can easily put on makeup and check out what they’re wearing before they leave the room!

The Little Extras

For cute luxury hotel appeal, fashion your towels how they do when you’re on holiday. This towel animal folding guide will teach you how to make those delightful swans that exotic hotels always lay on the bed. A sweet touch! Also be sure to include enough hangers in the wardrobe for your guests’ clothes. And add an extra fluffy bathrobe and slippers for each guest so they can lounge around in comfort. Also use a deep wicker basket to store extra pillows and blankets in case your visitors are feeling the chill. Invest in some tall vases and have fresh cut flowers ready for when your visitors arrive. This is one of the sure-fire ways to make the guest room look fresh and chic. For a true boutique hotel style feel, leave out a pretty tray stashed with a teapot, teabags and coffee so your guest can treat themselves whenever they want. Then all they need to do is holler to their host if they need fresh milk or extra hot water.

Plush Guest Bathroom

If you are lucky enough to have a guest bathroom, don’t forget to make this look super chic too. Have a bale of fresh fluffy white towels and flannels that your guests can use. And create a special travel pack which includes extras they may have forgotten. In here you can include toothpaste, a toothbrush, hand lotion and face wipes. Always make sure you are fully stocked with shower gel, bubble bath, and toilet roll too. Holding on to travel sizes you get from hotel stays is a great way of making your guest bathroom look like the ultimate swanky hotel.

And last but not least don’t forget to leave a spare set of keys on the bedside table for them. This way they’ll certainly feel like a luxury hotel guest. Hopefully, they’ll then make you breakfast in return for the board!
