THREE EASY STEPS TO MAKE YOUR APARTMENT COZIER

|

It's easy to change up a few things in your home to create a comfy environment. These three easy steps will help you have an even cozier apartment in Katy.

FILL THE AIR WITH GOOD SMELLS

It's no secret that smell affects your mood. You can make your apartment smell nice in a variety of ways. Essential oils in a diffuser, a lighted candle or cookies baking in the oven can enhance the scent in our home. Consider different scents for different purposes. Lavender can promote a relaxing vibe whereas citrus scents can be energizing. Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to smell, so choose the scents that work for you.

USE A VARIETY OF LIGHTING SOURCES

Lighting can have a big impact. Soft light from a lamp adds coziness to your space. Or you could achieve this comfy feel with twinkle lights. Consider switching out your light bulbs to a warmer tone. Use this as an opportunity to upgrade to LED bulbs and save on electricity usage. A lower Kelvin (K) number means the light will have a warmer yellow tone whereas a larger number means a cooler bluish tone. Ratings of 2000k to 3000k provide a warm, inviting, and comfy light.

CREATE A MEDIA NOOK

Whether you would use the space for reading or streaming media on your favorite device, the idea is the same. Find a designated spot to encourage coziness. All you need is to add soft pillows and blankets. Faux fur and fleece add soft touches to your space, literally. Now you have a cozy place to curl up with your favorite shows and books.

These small changes can help lift your mood. Your home should be a sanctuary away from stress and a source of inspiration for having fun. If you're searching for a place to call home, then contact us at Olympus Katy Ranch today.
