How To Make Your Home More Inviting

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

You want your home to feel like home, and, for most, a home is a place that’s comfortable and welcoming. A welcoming home is one that puts you at ease the minute you walk inside. It’s a place where you can lay back, relax, and cast away your worries. It’s also a place where you can spend time with family and friends.

If your home feels cold and impersonal instead of warm and inviting, you’re probably looking for ways to change that. Wondering how to make your home more inviting? Here are some simple and inexpensive tricks.

Paint the Front Door

The eyes are the windows to a person’s soul. What are the windows to a home’s soul, then? Ironically, not the actual windows. It’s the front door, the thing that allows you to enter and leave your home.

A beaten-up and faded front door doesn’t make your home look welcoming. In fact, it does the exact opposite. It makes your home seem unwelcoming.

Painting your front door is a simple way to make your home seem more inviting. Bright and colorful hues will make the exterior look happier and more appealing.

Upgrade the Seating

The next tip on how to make your home more inviting is to upgrade the seating. No, you don’t have to replace your old couch. That would put a real dent in your wallet! Instead, make your existing seating options more comfortable by throwing down brand-new pillows, blankets, and maybe even a slipcover. You can also get an ottoman (or two) so your guests have a place to kick up their feet. If you have a lot of family and friends and want to add new seating without breaking the bank, try cheaper options such as beanbags or poufs.

Fill It With Plants

Humans are hardwired to adore flowers, shrubs, and trees—anything vibrant, green, and leafy! There’s even a name for it: biophilia, the tendency to prefer natural environments over manmade environments as a result of evolution.

Plants can make a room feel more calming and inviting, so why not scatter some throughout the house? If you’re not much of a green thumb, don’t worry. You can decorate using fake plants or durable real ones. Yucca, snake plants, and jade money plants are good low-maintenance choices for inside the home.
