For most individuals, having an interior design and decor they can be proud of is of the utmost importance. However, in our attempt to create a stylish and sophisticated dwelling, we often forget about ensuring comfort and cosiness. Many of us often strive for one single aesthetic, neglecting the fact that comfort needn't be ignored in the face of fashion, and vice versa. Marrying snugness with finesse can be challenging, but it is by no means impossible, and below we have examined 11 ways we believe you can easily make your home more comfortable, without losing out on flair or luxury. 

If you would like to read how you can achieve this balance in your dwelling, and create a cosy, comfortable home that also looks graceful and polished, then take a look at the gorgeous examples below!

1. An overstuffed sofa

Nothing says luxury and opulence quite like a gorgeous overstuffed sofa, and this velvet-upholstered example from Loaf is definitely no exception! Wonderfully comfy, and effortlessly cosy, this is one piece of furniture we aren’t likely to forget in a hurry.

2. Natural light

When we think of comfort we often forget about lighting. Improving natural light in your home is a great start to making your interior more welcoming, warm and relaxed.

3. An ottoman

Take your dining room to the next level with upholstered chairs. The example above is a great illustration of a comfortable and highly inviting dinner setting, perfect for family or entertaining.

If you really want to get cosy and comfy at home, you need sumptuous bed linen. Look for quality quilts, satin sheet sets, and linen with a high thread count, for that truly lavish and luxuriant aesthetic.

6. Plants and greenery

Plants not only look great, they improve interior air quality as well. If you are looking to make your home more comfortable, ensure the air is purified and clean too with a collection of stylish indoor foliage.

7. Throw cushions

Can one ever truly have too many throw cushions? These versatile, stylish and sumptuous domestic accessories are bound to improve your home’s comfort level, while also adding to the overall ambience and trendiness too!

Throw rugs are the other type of essential rug you definitely require in your home. Perfect for cosying up with a film at night, or simply to create an enticing aura in your dwelling, throw rugs are an easy solution to a perceived lack of comfort.

10. Warm mood lighting

As well as natural light, it is crucial you employ the correct type of artificial lighting in your abode. Avoid blue-toned fluorescents, and instead opt for soft mood lighting with a warm glow.

11. A welcoming entrance
