For a house to be a home, it has to be somewhere you feel completely comfortable. However, balancing comfort with practicality can be a trying task. To help you change your home for the better, here are some simple tips you can use.

1) Install bulbs of different colours

Lighting can really transform the feeling of a room. Different colours can evoke different emotions and you can take advantage of this to make your home more welcoming. You can even get colour changing lights that you can alter as you see fit. You can switch to whatever colour you desire at any time of the day.

2) Hang artwork

Selecting artwork according to your personal taste – rather than any prevailing trend – is a great way to make your home your own. It is probably best to pick out a few favourites and hang them around the house. If you go overboard, you run the risk of making your house look cluttered.

3) Ensure it is clean at all times

Comfort comes with cleanliness. As well as being an eyesore, rubbish can smell. How can you possibly expect to be comfortable in such an unpleasant environment? In extreme cases, the accumulation of rubbish can even cause illness. To avoid such discomfort, it is important to take the time to tidy your home regularly. By staying on top of it, you can prevent it from slowly spiralling out of control and becoming a problem.

4) Bedroom design

A comfortable bedroom can be pivotal in determining your night’s sleep. And with sleep being such an important contributor to mood, the importance of ensuring your bedroom is designed to maximise the quality of your sleep cannot be overstated. Creating a relaxing environment where you feel at ease should be a priority. From walls painted in comforting hues, to bedding that you can sink into, there are a number of different ways you can make your bedroom more comfortable.  For kids, low sleeper cabin beds from Children’s Bed Shop are the perfect blend of style and simplicity.

5) Adopt a pet

Pets have a knack of making everyone they are around feel at home. Many pet owners can hardly bear to be apart from them, spending their time fretting about their wellbeing in their absence. Being reunited with a faithful companion every time you get home will inevitably make you feel more relaxed.

6) Find a way to relax at home

After the physical and mental toll of a day at work, it becomes essential to find a way to unwind. Everyone has different ways of de-stressing, it might be exercise, it might be playing or listening to music, or it might even be watching TV. Whatever it is, it is important to make it easily accessible at home.

7) Paint your home in your favourite colour

Your favourite colour is a matter of personal taste. Whilst some prefer bright and bold colours, others might prefer more neutral tones: whatever makes you feel most comfortable. For some, a combination of different colours might be most appealing.
