In our last blog, we talked about a couple of things that you can do to create a more welcoming environment in your home. We discussed making a welcoming entryway and using a lot of texture in your interior design. At URBANfusion, we not only offer a wide variety of homewares that can help bring your home to life, but we want to help you to reach your interior design goals! That is why our experts have come up with these last few tips for creating a welcoming home:

  • Don’t be afraid to diversify – Most of our homes don’t look like the showroom at Ikea or American Furniture Warehouse, and that is a good thing! Although it may be quick and easy to fill your living room with a single furniture set, it doesn’t feel very “homey”. By mixing it up and diversifying your furniture, you are getting farther away from the showroom look and closer to the at-home look.
  • Use warm colors – The colors you use can go a long way to setting the mood or the tone in your home. If you want your home to be welcoming and comfortable, warm colors are the way to go.
  • Don’t forget the details – Knickknacks, like candles, books, magazines, flowers, decorations or even plush toys, can go a long way to making your home much cozier and more inviting.
  • Use lighting wisely – Lighting can make a huge difference in your home. If you want your home to appear cozier and more intimate, utilize several table lamps. If you want your home to look larger, use ceiling lights.
