While no-one can choose your colour scheme, furniture style or accessories, which should be unique to you, there are some basic elements you can incorporate to create an attractive, functional and cosy property.

Checkout the below top tips on how to create the perfect home.

Increase Your Storage Solutions

It is almost impossible to feel relaxed and happy within a home if you are surrounded by endless clutter. To create a serene, attractive space you’re proud to call your home; you will need to invest in different storage solutions, such as:

  • Hidden cupboards
  • Shelving
  • Bookcases
  • Storage benches
  • Baskets

In addition to increasing your storage options, you also must regularly declutter your home. So, purge your wardrobe of clothing you no longer want or need, recycle unwanted paper, throw away out-of-date food, donate personal items to charity.

The above tactics will free up space within the home while ensuring everything has a place, which can reduce your stress levels.

Pick a House Plant

Every home needs some form of house plant, which can reportedly help to purify the air, reduce airborne dust levels and boost your mood.

There are also a number of plants to choose from to complement your taste, which could include:

  • Spider plant
  • Snake plant
  • Aloe Vera
  • Chinese evergreen
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Red-edged Dracaena

The above plants could ultimately help you to create a healthier, happier and beautiful home.

Find a Focal Point

Each room within the home requires a focal point, which will grab your guests’ attention, as well as your own. For example, a stunning chandelier will almost certainly draw the eye when incorporated into a living room, bedroom or dining room. A colourful work of art, meanwhile, will add personality, texture and interest into a space.

Don’t overlook your garden, either. To inject beauty and character into your outdoor area, visit to find the perfect water feature for your exterior design, such as decorative fountain or cascading water blades.

Treat Yourself to a Cosy Sofa

Your living room should provide a space to sit back, put your feet up and enjoy a little downtime alone or with your loved ones. To effectively recharge your batteries after a tough day, you will need to invest in a cosy sofa that will ease you into relaxation and will provide both you and your visitors with a comfortable social area within the home.

Buy a Comfortable Bed

A poor-quality mattress, rough bed linen and a flimsy bed can all equal a poor night’s sleep. If you want to drift off with ease every night, you must treat yourself to comfy bedding, especially if like me you are suffering from hot flushes lol! Also a supportive bed frame, which will ensure you feel relaxed and rejuvenated each morning is a good idea…

    I love the color you add to your home! I am working on decluttering and making less cleaning for myself. My home is very small and so anything out of place looks like clutter. I am seriously attempting to rid the home of excess stuff.
