Simple Ideas For Creating A Warm And Welcoming Home

Nothing beats the feeling of coming home to a cozy and inviting home. They say that home is where the heart is, and your home should be somewhere that makes you feel safe and warm. Warmth isn’t just a physical feeling; it’s a state of mind too. Creating the right atmosphere in your home can make you feel safer and happier, and the good news is that it’s easy to achieve. Take a look at some simple ideas for creating a warm and welcoming home below.

Add warm colours and textures

The trend for many of today’s modern homes features lots of white, greys and generally ‘cool’ shades. While this creates a sleek and stylish look, it can make a home feel somewhat cold. Adding in some warmer colors including deep shades of reds, purples, and browns can create a feeling of warmth and doesn’t need to involve a huge overhaul of your home. Making simple changes like adding in new curtains or some colorful cushions will help.

If you can’t alter your colour scheme, try bringing in some different textures like wool, linen, and faux fur is a simple way to create the feeling of coziness. Scandinavian design trends use many different colors and textures to add warmth without compromising on style, so you can learn a lot from these types of interiors.

Embrace the concept of ‘hygge’

Hygge is a Danish concept relating to ‘coziness.’ In recent years it has really taken over, the New Yorker describes it as wholesome and nourishing and can include many different elements to make your home a sanctuary. Rather than focusing on decor, the concept embraces comfy clothing, candles, and comforting foods and drink as a way to relax and feel happy. You can find plenty of ideas for living more ‘hygge’ on Pinterest or in the many books that have been published on the subject in the last year.

Change your heating

An easy way to create more warmth in your home is to change your heating. More people are embracing fireplaces and stoves to not only heat their homes but to create a cool design feature too. If you’re concerned about the smell and caused by wood, you could consider investing in a pellet stove instead which heats just as effectively, but with less mess and smoke than a wood burner. You can also pick up pellet stove parts for less than wood or coal and enjoy the fantastic feeling of relaxing in front of the stove at night. Changing your heating comes at a cost, but it’s one worth having to enjoy a warmer, more welcoming home.

Transforming your home to be warmer and more inviting isn’t as difficult as it sounds. You can start by making your bedroom a more comfortable place to sleep and working from there. Having a house or apartment you look forward to coming home to is one of life’s pleasures, so start making changes and enjoy your warm, cozy living space.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
