When the daily grind is so exhausting and there is a constant pressure to complete different tasks, everyone dreams about a few hours of relaxation and some time off the busy work schedule. I am sure that I am not the only one who always finds a piece of comfort in my home. As the saying goes ‘My home is my fortress’, I truly do believe that there is no better place than my home to rest.

If you, too, want to run away from you stressful daily life but the chaos in your home brings you only more unpleasant feelings, then I believe that it is time to take the matters in your hands and follow a few steps to make your fortress more cozy. 

Declutter your mind and your home

The first and most important step to make any mess into a cozy home where you can enjoy your free time is to get rid of any clutter. Grab a basket and use it to put the things which you don’t need in it. If there are items which have been only contributing for the chaos in your house, make the cardinal decision to throw them away or at least store them in a place where they won’t be bothering you. 

Cleaning and aroma therapy at the same time 

You may have heard that lavender oil has calming properties but did you know that it is also a very good disinfectant? Next time when you clean any hard surface you can use a homemade solution of one cup of water, one cup of vinegar and about ten drops of lavender oil. This way you will clean your entire home and the scent that will linger after the fast cleaning session will make the atmosphere in your home a lot more calming. 

Decorate your home in your style

To make your home the perfect place for relaxation, you can express your art style by including items which you like. Hanging a panting which is to your taste or incorporating a plant in the interior is a great way to remodel the look of your home. Those items are subtle enough to not disturb the general look of your rooms but at the same time they can give a fresh look and feel to your house.

Candles everywhere

There is no doubt that candles can make every room a lot more cozy in an instance. If you don’t like the mess that wax candles create or you are worried about the danger of starting a fire, you can try flameless candles which are powered with batteries. This way you will avoid any wax stains but you will still enjoy a cozy atmosphere. 

Make everything more comfortable

If you have a favourite spot in your home where you like to spend your free time, then you should make this place as cozy as possible. Decorate your couch or bed with as much throw pillows as you can. Put a faux fur blanket next to them and your relaxation spot is ready for you anytime. Just imagine watching your favorite TV shows or reading the book which recently have caught your attention in this cozy and relaxing spot. It can’t get more comfortable than this. 

These few steps guarantee you a home which will be completely transformed from a chaotic mess into a cozy place where you can enjoy every second of your free time. Make your home a place where you are eager to return to after the long day at work. I promise you that these simple steps will help you to change the way you look at your home.
