When it comes to our homes, we all want to make sure that they feel like places where we can truly relax and be ourselves. However, it can sometimes be hard to know where to start. Luckily, there are plenty of simple steps that you can take to make your space more comfortable and inviting.  


To get you started, we share our top tips on how to make your house more of a home! So keep reading for ideas on how to create a cosy and welcoming home environment. 

Take advantage of empty walls 

Hanging up some artwork or personal photos will help add some colour and life to blank walls, and it will also give you a chance to express your personality. If you lack artwork, hop online and search for free prints - there are millions of them for every aesthetic, and they’re a great way to fill up empty wall space without spending a lot of money.  

Add greenery 

Greenery is an excellent way to bring life into your home, whether you love a vase full of fresh flowers or a faux potted plant. Plants create the illusion of a lush, mini oasis that can help to soften the edges of a room and make it feel more inviting.  

Display your personality 

This can be tricky with a rented home, but accessories like peel-and-stick wallpaper or adhesive command hooks are renter-friendly ways to update your interior with colour and hanging artwork. Remember, your home isn’t just the lounge or bedroom, so display your personality in every room, from the bathroom to the garden.  

Make it warm and comfortable 

One of the best things about coming home at the end of a long day is being surrounded by cosy textures. A soft throw blanket draped over the back of the couch, a fluffy rug on the floor, and a well-loved coat hanging on a hook by the door can all contribute to creating an inviting space. And there's no need to go overboard - a few well-placed items can make all the difference.
