Yes, you heard it right. Cozy is the word. What’s with all the fancy colors and furniture if you won’t feel comfortable with it? Comfort is an important aspect that you should incorporate whenever you are coming up with a new design for a room, especially if it will be in your own home. Remember, looks aren’t everything. That sofa might make a stunning centerpiece in your living room, but will it actually feel good sitting on it?

This is where saving money comes in. Just because you’re redecorating doesn’t mean you have to replace everything. A part of comfort is surrounding yourself with things you’re familiar with, things you’ve spent time with. Reincorporate old pieces in a new design. An example can be in the form of recycling old pillows by simply changing their pillowcases. Same comfort, new look. And you don’t even have to spend a single dime!

Another part of making a room comfortable is by treating yourself to small luxuries. That can be as simple as scented candles to some people, for example. Remember, it’s your room and you can do anything–and put anything you want in it! Not only will you feel good being pampered in the comfort of your own home, you get to share the experience with others, whether they may be family members or guests.
