Having a home that is inviting - that welcomes visitors with a touch of warmth and lingers in the minds of guests long after they have left your home- definitely makes for an enjoyable and memorable place. Here are five simple ways to make your space inviting:
One fundamental rule of having a happy, inviting space is to have uncluttered space. Clutter gives a feel of stress to the space. Nobody likes to see piles of clothes, stacks of bills, magazines, books lying here and there. Keep your space uncluttered and bring in a sense of happiness.
Let your space be unobstructive:
For creating a comfortable environment, the space needs to have a sense of free flow. The idea is to make moving through your home - getting from the front door to the seating areas, the dining space, the bathroom and more - obstacle-less. Don't put huge, bulky furniture all over the place so that no one can squeeze through, and don't put too many floor pillows so that your guests will have difficulty in navigating.
Bring in your personality:
Your home should reflect your distinct personality. When people visit your house, they should be able to strike a connection with your personality. The essence lies in creating a space that feels like you. So, make all efforts to bring in different facets of your personality in your decor. Sprinkle unique design details around the house. For this, you need not spend a fortune. Push your creative boundary and indulge in some DIY projects.
Let your house smell fresh:
Good fragrance is heady. So make sure that your house smells nice. Keep some nice floating aromatic candles in the house. And of course nothing can beat the smell and aesthetics of fresh flowers.
A touch of green:
Having green space in your home makes it definitely a space worth visiting again and again. So, create your own green space no matter how small/ big your house is. If you want to extend a 'green' welcome to your guests then put some potted plants at the entrance/hallway.
