How to Make your Home Cozier for the Holidays?

Everyone’s favorite time of the year is around the corner and holiday preparations have just begun. It’s time to revamp your living space to make it cozy and welcoming for the winters. Luckily, you don’t need to break the bank to make your home ideally warm and festive for the holidays. You probably have a bunch of usable stuff in your attic or storeroom that can be put to good use. Other than that, it is the perfect excuse to indulge in some Christmas shopping. Staying in will seem like a treat when you implement these easy and creative tips:

1- Winter themed Rugs and Throw Pillows

It’s time to revamp your living space to make it cozy and welcoming for the winters. Here are 10 tips to make your home cozier for the holidays.

Time to roll out your thickest carpets, rugs, and mats in the house and get rid of those cold feet. Swap your summer throw pillows with more winter-appropriate ones. My top picks are velvet and plush; I also love the contemporary ones with winter-themed quotes or text. Choose dark, warm, and earth tones to create the perfect ambiance.

2- Candles for Holidays

Candlelight can instantly make a room look cozy and romantic. You can buy candles in all the holiday colors, i.e. red, green, white, and yellow/gold to add a pop of color to your interior. It’s best to choose scentless candles for the dinner table, but scented candles are great for creating that cozy vibe around other parts of the house. Pumpkin spice, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa butter, and sandalwood are some popular scents for winter feels.

3- Hot Beverage Bar

Coffee and hot chocolate are everything when it’s freezing inside, but you want to feel alive. Setting up a hot beverage bar in the living room will improve convenience and help everyone stay warm; you can make it as fancy as you like. You may include personal favorites to the bar, such as apple cider, spicy mulled wine, chai, and an assortment of teas.

4- Decorate Doors and Entryways

Bringing some natural elements indoors is a great way to develop a fresh and rustic atmosphere. A few potted plants here and there, as well as one or more real Christmas trees, look amazing. Drape your doors and entryways with warm fairy lights and artificial greens to magnify the coziness.

5- Festive Art for Holidays

If you and your family have a flair for art, change up the artifacts displayed around the house to compliment the holiday spirit. You can have an arts and crafts session at home to personalize your space for the season. You may cut out glittery snowflakes, put up photos from past Christmases, or perhaps do a painting that captures a picture-perfect winter moment.

6- Fuzzy Fabrics

Fuzzy Fabrics

You’re not the only one who needs an extra layer or two to survive the winters. Adding some warm and fuzzy fabrics to the bare surfaces around the home is a wonderful idea. Swap your regular curtains and bed linens with something snug and chunkier. Add blankets to your furniture and bring out the winter-themed table mats, runners, napkins, etc.

7- Warm Lighting

9- Accentuate the Fireplace

Hugs and cuddles from furry family members are the best things in winters. If you already have an adorable pet, perhaps it is time to get them an animal companion.
