We all have our favorite rooms in our home. From cooking up amazing creations in the kitchen to taking in the sun with a good book on the back porch, each room has its own reasons to be your favorite. That being said, sometimes, after a long day at work or school, the only thing you want to do is come home to a comfy couch and a place to rest your feet. In order for the experience to be complete, you need an especially cozy room in your house. In part one of this series, we will give you a few tips on how to make your living room the comfiest room in your house, so you have a place to come home to each day and relax.

Invest in a Large Ottoman
The traditional approach to living room decor is to place a coffee table in front of your couch, in order to give you plenty of places to set a drink, play games, or even eat your dinner. That being said, if you’re looking for ways to make your living room cozier, one option is to forego the coffee table and choose an oversized ottoman instead! Ottomans come in a number of styles, shapes, and sizes, allowing you to find the perfect piece to match your sense of style. The benefit of using an ottoman instead of a coffee table is that they are even more versatile than a coffee table. In addition to giving you a comfortable place to rest your feet, most oversized ottomans have a flat surface where you can place a tray for drinks or plates. If you’re hosting a party for friends and family members, a large ottoman can quickly become extra seating if you’re in a bind.
Add Personal Touches
When guests enter your home, you want them to feel comfortable, but even more than that, you want to give them the impression that your home is lived in. In large, spacious homes, modern decor can make the living room feel as though everything is on display and not to be touched, which is not something you want in the coziest room of your home. The best way to make yourself and guests feel more at home is to add some personal touches to the decor. Hang up family portraits or photos of your family pet, and throw a couple blankets onto the couch. Adding these simple elements will make your home look more like yours and help everyone feel more comfortable.
