HOG homey space for your family

A homey space always feels better when you're getting home after work. You probably felt that way when you got home from school as a child. It's possible to create a similar feeling in your home by cultivating it. Here are a few tips to help you cultivate that feeling at yours.

Put up Some Draperies

Usually, the place feels homey because it's got tons of sound dampening material. You can start by hanging up some draperies around the room. Choose one that's able to block out the natural light filtering through the windows. They'll help make the room darker, too.


Remember to use traits that match your room's color scheme. The end result will look much better if you've been using color-matched materials. Plus, don't forget that thicker drapes dampen sound better. The thicker the drapes you're using, the quieter it'll be in your room.

Build a Fireplace

One of the coziest things you can add to your house would be a fireplace. Adding a fireplace would make it feel more inviting when you stepped through the front door.


Everyone would gather around it when it's cold outside during the winter. Plus, you could even use it to reduce your reliance on the home's furnace. It's possible to save money by using a fireplace to heat your home instead of central air.

Hanged up Some Wall Art

Hanging art on the walls can help you set the tone of any room in your home. We recommend using smaller pieces in the bedrooms and bathrooms. They've usually got less wall space to work with.

Hang large wall art in the common rooms of your home, like the kitchen. They'll take up a lot of space, so you don't have to buy a ton. You've just got to put enough of them up to take up the majority of the wall.

Look for something that's going to create the feeling you'd like while you're searching for art. The right piece could make a huge difference in the tone of your room.

Use Hanging Beads As a Partition

Another way you can create a relaxed feeling would be by hanging up beads to serve as partitions. They'll create a gentle rustling sound whenever you're walking through them.

Hanging up a few sets throughout your house would create quite the effect on its tone. Make sure to use speeds that match your room's color scheme as well.

Rugs Can Help Dampen Sound

One of the last things you'll need to create a cozy feeling room is going to be a rug. You've got to have a plush one to help dampen the sound even more. Plus, it'll make walking around the room without shoes on feel fantastic.

Look for something that's pretty thick while you're searching for a rug. Thicker rugs also help to dampen noise inside the room. Try to find one that would look lovely sitting in front of the fireplace.

Putting one in front of the fireplace is a great way to make it feel even more inviting.

Try Painting With Warm Tones

Colors elicit a response in everyone. Using the right color for your room can help you evoke the type of feeling that you're after. We'd recommend using warmer tones if you're trying to make the room feel cozy. Warm colors tend to make people feel more relaxed than cool tones.

You could experiment by crafting a color wheel to see how each of them makes you feel. Bring it to the room you're planning on coloring. Then, hold up a strip of several different colors against the wall. This can help you imagine how it would feel if the whole room was painted in that color. You might need to do it a couple of times before finding the right match. Take as long as you need.

Creating a Homey Space

A homey feeling room is usually one that's quiet and inviting. You can emulate these feelings by using the right interior design approach. We've given you a guide on how to get started on this project. Remember to research other people's opinions as well.
