How to Make Your Stephenville Home Feel More Cozy

Back to Real Estate News

If you’ve just moved into a new Stephenville home, you probably spent some time rearranging your furniture or perhaps even buying a couple of new pieces. However, if you feel like you aren’t quite done with home decorating, the reason might be because your home looks a little stark or unwelcoming with the new paint and furniture in pristine condition. Luckily, it’s easy to make your home have a “lived-in” comfort with a few simple designer tricks.

Take a look at the seating around the dining table of your Stephenville home. There’s probably a good chance you’ve chosen chairs with hard lines and little comfort. Instead, designers suggest a deep banquette in a dining area as an alternative to just chairs. If the banquette is a little beyond your budget, you could opt to move an armchair into the room so that you and your guests have comfortable, informal seating.

Another quick fix is to take a look at your lighting. If you’re relying on fluorescent, overhead lights, you might want to make a switch to using soft, diffused lighting instead. Lanterns swaying in archways or paper shades on vintage lamps both could give your Stephenville home a warm ambiance. If you have some spare blankets or throws tucked away in a closet, pull those out and toss them over your favorite armchair or sofa. Spare blankets in a room immediately make it seem more comfortable, and they’ll be the perfect accessory for this upcoming autumn season with crisp, chilly weather.
