Top 10 Ways to Make Your Home Cozy for Fall

As the days grow darker and the weather turns cooler, there has never been a better time to focus on creating a cozy and inviting home. With the chill in the air, you’re likely spending more time indoors. Get a head starts on the approaching holidays by making your place comfortable and inviting now with the following 10 great tips.

Focal Points

When it comes to fall decor, “instead of spreading a few items here or there around the room only to have them get visually lost, concentrate your fall decorating on the natural focal point of the room,” says decorating expert Kathy Woodard at The Budget Decorator. In your living room, this might be the fireplace, for example, where you decorate the mantel with branches, greenery, a wreath and/or other seasonal items. When settling onto the sofa on a fall evening with a crackling fire and your decorations above it, you’ll love the cozy feel.

Warm Colors

You might not want to completely overhaul your home’s decorating for the season, but consider adding a few small touches to celebrate fall. From new pillows to thicker curtains, look for ways to incorporate warm colors into your style.

Warm Colors

Candles

Nothing sets the mood faster than candlelight — so make the most of the special lighting by spreading candles throughout your living areas. Plus, they are a simple way to give areas like bathrooms and guest diy room decor a seasonal update. With their soft glow and a wide range of fragrances, your home will become more inviting.

Warm Light

Also, spread lamps throughout living areas. Bright lights are great for daytime, but when you’re relaxing in the evening, you want a softer feel. For lamps and built-in lights, add dimmer switches in order to conveniently lower and raise the lighting level.

Blankets

One of the fastest ways to make a home feel warm and inviting is by layering with blankets, according to an interior designer quoted at Bustle.com. Top a sofa or bed with layers of soft blankets, and you’ll gain warmth and comfort when lounging. Add interest to this cozy feel by mixing textures, with thick, wool blankets sandwiched by thinner, smooth ones.

Rugs

Hardwoods and tile floors can look wonderful but feel cold — so make things more inviting by adding soft rugs. A rug can add to the coziness of your space just in time for the colder seasons. What’s more, rugs are great for tying together decorating schemes, reducing noise and creating a warmer, more comfortable surface for your feet on chilly nights.Hardwoods and tiled floors can look wonderful but feel cold

Greenery

“Delicate greenery feels calming and homey,” notes lifestyle publication Real Simple. Incorporate some sturdy indoor plants into your space to bring more life. From potted plants to live wreaths to fresh fall bouquets, fresh plants are wonderful features in a home.

Home Cooking

There are few things more comforting than stepping into a kitchen that smells like home-cooked food. Making some soup, stew, cookies or pie is a surefire way to fill your home with the smells and tastes of the season.Home Cooking

Music

It may be too soon for Christmas music, but it’s never out of season to play some of your favorite tunes in the background while you read, cook, entertain or simply lounge by the fire. Turn on your favorite tunes and unwind.

Personal Mementos

Keep your home from feeling impersonal by adding a few thoughtful touches. Whether you have one beloved family photo on an end table or a gallery wall of favorites above the sofa, choose mementos that mean something to you in order to turn your living spaces into some of your favorite places to spend time.
