A weird layout can be a hindrance to the design of an inviting environment. A functional room does not have to look plain and an old fireplace can get new life with an electric insert. Repurposing old furniture with new a design and upgrade can make something old look new and fresh. When a room is neutral, when it comes to color it pops bringing a warm and cozy feel to it. Hiding chords and function items like the tv boxes can help create an inviting design as well. The best part is the fireplace, which is functional and cozy.
- Coziness can be a room and a home’s best attribute. Unfortunately, it goes with small and tight and spaces that promote one-to-one activity.
- If a room has a weird shape, that is overlarge, or otherwise inharmonious, creating a cozy feel can be an uphill battle.
- Storage should always be hidden and not obvious to the idea, in order to enhance coziness. Shelves, ottomans and built in concepts that multi-task are optimal.
““Our home was not custom by any means, so while we could pick some of the finishes, we didn’t get much say in terms of layout,” says Julie. “While we were so excited to be in our first home, we knew the living room had to get an upgrade. It’s the room we spend the most time in, and its long, awkward shape wasn’t super functional.””
