Tips To Make Your House Feel Like Home

Moving furniture into your new place is only part of what makes up your home Now that you’ve bought or rented the big stuff (sofa, dining set, bed), it’s time to add the stuff that mark your space as yours. Not sure where to start? We asked our team of interior designers and home stagers for simple decorating tips to make your house a home.

Display picture frames with family photos around your home

What better way to add a personal and homey feel to your place than surrounding yourself with pictures of your loved ones? If you don’t want to spend the money on tons of frames, think about hanging photos with binder clips or using colorful washi tape to create fun frames for an inexpensive and stylish alternative. These are especially easy apartment decor ideas that won’t damage rental walls.

Create centerpieces for your tables

Centerpieces are often reserved for special occasion, like a wedding or a fancy dinner, but in reality a centerpiece is an easy way to make a room pop with style without a ton of effort. You can use simple items for centerpieces, such as your favorite candles, fresh flowers, or even books and magazines to bring a focal point to a room. Don’t limit yourself to styling one room–add a centerpiece to your coffee table, dining room table, and even your bedside table!

Add throw blankets and pillows to your sofa, accent chair and bed

Let’s get cozy! Not only will plush pillows and soft blankets make you want to get cozy on the couch, these pieces will also add color and texture to your space, especially if your furniture is made up of a neutral palate.

Incorporate whimsical accessories that reflect your unique personality

Do you love comics? What about the ocean? Maybe music is your jam (pun intended). Find things that speak to you and spread them throughout your house. Check out thrift stores or hit up garage sales in your area–both are great places to pick up fun and unique decor items. Bookends make great accent pieces without being too dominating. Or try cutting up images from magazines and old calendars to create a gallery wall.


And, if you’re still not sure about what where to start with your furniture, contact our Customer Care team for expert help!

    I did not realize that to help make your house more like home you just have to add small details. I like the idea of getting some throw pillows and adding simple centerpieces to tables. I think that it is important to add personalized details to your house so that when you get back from work and daily errands you can truly feel at home.

    I like that you suggest to add blankets and pillows to the sofa, chairs, and bed in order to help you feel like it is your house. I agree that decorating your house with your belongings can help make a house feel complete. I have been thinking about buying a house in the next year or so. I’ll have to keep this in mind when I move in.

    To give a unique look to our home interior, we should follow certain instruction. A home should be attractive and unique just because of good interior and exterior design. As a homeowner, I would like to hire a professional interior designer for home design as well as taking the support of good flooring, attractive doors, and windows, well-furnishing, and many others. Whenever the comfort level of a person increases in the house then it feels like a home. Thanks for this adorable article.

    I absolutely loved your advise about using whimsical items to reflect your unique personality. My brother and his wife have been making some style changes around their home, and asked me for some advice. I’ll advise they look around for pieces that reflect something about their character and personality, as it would both look great and make for a good conversation starter.

    I really liked your tip to add accent pillows to help add color and texture to a space. I feel like this could really help my living room since all the neutrals I have make it look bland. I think it would also be an inexpensive decor idea that could produce the most significant change for me.

    I loved when you mentioned how you can use pictures of your loved ones to decorate your house. It is important to remember that taking the time to choose the best photos for the different areas of your home can help you bring the feels that you want and make your home feel more comfortable. We are moving to a new house and what to make sure we decorate it properly, so I’ll share your page with my wife for more ideas on how we can make our house feel more like home.

    I’m not very good with home decor, so I found your tips to be very helpful. I liked your suggestion to use centerpieces to help make the space feel more cozy. I’d imagine this would also be helpful since it would give you flexibility as to what centerpiece to use based off the season or holiday approaching.
