Making Your Home Cozier on a Budget

Is your home just a place for you to lay your head at night or a sanctuary where you can relax and unwind in comfort whenever you get the opportunity? If it’s the former, then it’s time that you did something about it!

Here are some simple, affordable ways to make your home cozier on a budget:

 

 

Layer Up

The simplest, most affordable way to up the cozy factor in your home is by investing in lots of layers. Blankets, blankets, more blankets and pillows a plenty are the name of the game. They’re soft, soothing, warm and they can make your home look much prettier too.

 

Walls of Warmth

Paint is pretty cheap, so if you’re on a budget, buy a can of paint in a warm color and get to work. Rich reds, warm browns, fresh yellows and deep oranges all help to create a cozy atmosphere, even if you only put them on one or two walls.

 

Invest in a Tankless Water Heater

Okay, so this isn’t the cheapest option, but because it’s so efficient, it will save you money in the long-term, and it will make your home much cozier because you will always have access to hot water when you need it with an electric tankless water heater. What could be better than that after a long hard day at work?

 

Burn Some Wood

Again, this isn’t the cheapest option, but it will also save you significant sums of money on your heating bills over the years. More importantly, it will fill your home with warmth, comfort and the kind of coziness that it’s hard to replicate. You’ll be the envy of everyone!

 

Put a Rug Under It

Placing a rug under your coffee table is a great way to make your feet feel cozier, particularly if you have wooden floors, which aren’t exactly the warmest or most comfy of floors when you’re looking to relax.

 

Hang Some Curtains

Curtains are the epitome of affordable comfort. They can totally transform a room, giving it a softer edge and a more ambient level of light. Just be sure to go for warm colors and soft fabrics if you want to get the full effect.

 

 

Light It Up

Lights can also make a huge transformation to the average home. If it’s cozy you’re going for, then you’ll want to stay away from really bright lighting and instead choose lamps and lights that have a dimmer feature and fit them with warmer toned bulbs for that curl up on the couch with a cup of tea ambience.

 

Oh, candles are great too – use them instead of bulbs whenever you can to create a special atmosphere.

 

Cut Some Flowers

Flowers can be expensive, but if you cut them from the garden (time to start growing some) they’re dirt cheap, and they add a natural beauty to the home which makes it feel at least 50 percent cozier off the bat.

 

A smaller budget is no barrier to a cozier home. Use as many of the ideas above as you can afford to transform your house into a truly cozy home and you’ll always look forward to coming back.
