What’s the point of having a home you don’t enjoy being around at? It’s the place that’s supposed to be your safe haven, a refuge if you will, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the city, the oasis you go back to when your energy is drained. I’m not saying you should undertake grand makeovers to be able to come up with an interior décor that’s more than beautiful to look at, but rather find the way to create a space that’s the embodiment of comfort and warmth, inviting both to you and your loved ones.
We’re all guilty of binging on junk food, full of carbs, while also binging on our favourite shows and series – so much so we could have marathons every day and night. For some (like me), this is something that happens almost every night. To be able to amp up the experience, and make it all the more comfortable and exciting, in a way it would be as when being at the cinema or theatre, you can turn your own home into a film theater by getting one of the home theater sofas and a popcorn machine.
This kind of sofa doesn’t just give you the space to store your drinks, but an enhanced film experience as well, by having the comfortable armrest and footrest features to let loose the tensions off your back as a result of being at work all day. While they’re designed for your utmost relaxation, home theater sofas are also designed to fit in with your interior décor and add to its flair, considering there are models that differ in style, with some made of leather – leather is classic and goes with everything!
Once you’ve arranged your film area, it’s time to look at the bigger picture. Despite what it may seem, sometimes it’s not about purchasing new furniture and artwork, it’s about knowing how to use up what you already have to arrange it in a way that would result in harmony. You may not be aware of what it is that’s annoying you, but if getting around your furniture isn’t exactly easy, it’s high time you thought of rearranging the place. The easier it is to move around, the more openness it would bring. This goes for big homes as much as it does for small, depending on the amount and size of items there are part of the interior. Crammed spaces aren’t exactly warm, which means they are both neither comfortable nor inviting.
You can always count on nature to brighten up a space, so don’t be afraid to mix it up with the addition of plants. Plants, plants, lots of plants! You can add them even in spaces where you usually don’t think of as the thriving place for them, such as the bathroom. There are those that are ideal for indoor spaces due to their air-purifying properties, then there are those that are perfect in an aesthetic point of view and both can boost your mood. Since nature always brings about warmth, you can be sure the result would be a great one.
So, to sum it up, make an effort to create the cosy film corner, don’t forget about the effect of arranging and rearranging, and count on the beauty of plants to get the warm and welcoming home you’d never want to leave.
