Get some throws, scatter cushions and rugs- Soft furnishings not only make a room feel warmer but will also make it more comfortable and inviting. Placing a soft throw over a neutral sofa is a fast way of making it look more stylish, and adding bright scatter cushions around the living room and bedrooms will add a touch of luxuriousness and colour.
Candles, oil diffusers and flowers- What your house looks like may distinguish it more as a home but other things like scents can too. If you have a favourite flower, make sure you have a full vase of blooms on your dining room table at all times. Similarly, oil diffusers and candles with calming scents can make you feel more at home and help you to relax.
Display any interesting crockery and glassware- Whether they’re family heirlooms or your latest buys, unique crockery and glassware can make great original features in a dining room or kitchen. Visible to guests when they are set out on the table, why not keep them in view all the time by displaying your favourite pieces on shelves or in a glass fronted cupboard when not in use? Glasses and crockery come in all shapes, colours and sizes, making them eye-catching and individual pieces that will make your house feel more like home.
Get customising- From homemade artwork to hand painted furniture, putting your own spin on things is the easiest way of making a house feel truly your own. If you are willing to tinker around with your furniture, try painting the legs of chairs and tables different colours or creating patterned seat cushions and chair covers. You could also try your hand at some arts and crafts, or switch up any door or draw handles with patterned ones easily sourced from furniture and homeware shops.
