Ways To Increase The Comfort Of Your Home ♥

As most of us will spend our days in the office, out and about or stuck in front of a computer screen, arriving home is a time we rely on for relaxation and comfort. There's no better feeling than
putting your feet up after a long day in the comfort of your own home. 

However, sometimes our homes can feel far from the hub of relaxation we dream of. In order to make your home the ultimate destination for comfort, utilise these helpful tips

Natural lighting
Making the most of natural light is crucial to making your home feel as comforting as possible. Having natural light cascade across a room can instantly change its mood. Move anything obstructing windows out of the way so you can make the most of any natural light. If you're looking for more ways to brighten up a dark room check out my post on seven ways to brighten a dark room and see if they help.

Big, bay windows are incredibly popular in modern homes, and this is the reason why; lots of natural light instantly creates a feeling of space and comfort.

Windows
Staying with the theme of light, your windows can make a big difference. This isn't just because of the natural light they give to your home, either. Double-glazed windows work as
additional insulation, so your home will feel warm when it needs to. Nobody likes coming home to a freezing cold house, do they? 

What's more, better quality windows will create an additional barrier to block you from the noise of the outside world. So, if you're looking to relax without too much disturbance from loud neighbours or pesky pets, upgrading your windows might help.

Fresh air
The positive effect fresh air can have on your body is not something to be underestimated. By allowing fresh air to circulate around your home, you'll be breathing better and thinking clearer in no time.

Open up windows where appropriate, or even invest in an air purifier to keep the air in your home clear throughout the year. 

Blankets and cushions
After a hard day, sometimes you just want to curl up on the sofa with a book or your favourite series. When these days happen, your favourite blanket and scatter cushions will definitely help with relaxation. Not only will they add comfort to your home, but they're a popular choice in modern interior design. 

Scatter cushions can add depth and different textures, whilst a big blanket adds the feeling of warmth. When they offer both practicality and aesthetics, it's an unbeatable combination when it comes to comfort.

Use house plants
As well as investing in technology to keep fresh air circulating throughout your home, you could try doing it the natural way by incorporating house plants into your décor. By bringing some of the outdoors in, your interior design will be instantly more relaxing.

Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they're practical when it comes to health benefits. Of course, you need to be sure that they won't flare up any allergies. Or, if you ve got a particularly blackthumb, you may be best using succulents and other plants that require less upkeep. Check out my post on decorating with flowers if you're looking for some inspirations for bringing the outdoors in.

Flooring
Whichever room you'd like to add more comfort to, the flooring can play a big part. Wood flooring is a popular choice in modern interiors, but can occasionally feel hard and cold in certain interiors. If this is the case in your home, try adding a comfortable rug that adds warmth underfoot as well as a new element to the décor. 

When it comes to warmth, however, carpets are tough to beat; especially in bedrooms. Plus in bedrooms, you're much less likely to encounter the possibility or red wine spills or accidental food drops from the young ones. What tips have you got for making a home more comfortable?
