At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than coming home to a comfortable couch. Each room serves its own purpose in your home, and your living room is undoubtedly the coziest. However, simply furnishing the living space with a couch, ottoman, and a few pillows is not enough to make it the coziest room in your home. In part one of this series, we gave you a few tips to help create a more comfortable space in your living room. We suggested switching out a coffee table with an oversized ottoman and making some personal touches to give your room a more lived-in appearance. As we continue with part two, we will give you even more suggestions to help you create a room that is so comfortable that you may never want to leave.

Collect Comfortable Pillows

Most can agree that pillows are the ultimate symbol of comfort, therefore, it’s vital that you have a number of pillows in your living room. Throw pillows are a great way to add splashes of color to your living room, and a number of manufacturers will throw in some complimentary pillows when you buy your sofa. While you may be thinking that one or two pillows are enough, think about how they will be used. In addition to providing you with comfort, they can also be used for extra padding when you’re trying to read on the sofa, or give you something to hold while you watch your favorite movie. With so many shapes, sizes, and colors of comfortable pillows, you’re sure to find a selection that meets your needs.

Try Your Hand at Aromatherapy

Believe it or not, but the way you feel can be influenced by your sense of smell. Furnishing your living room and adding personal touches can go a long way, but if you really want to take your home to the next level of comfort, you can try aromatherapy. Try to think of warm scents that make you feel cozy and happy, such as vanilla or cinnamon. You can add different scents to a room using a variety of methods, from devices that you plug into the wall to essential oil diffusers. If you aren’t keen on the idea of scents filling your home 24/7, you can try using a few of your favorite scented candles. You may even find that the flickering of the flame has the comforting appeal that one would associate with sitting in front of the fireplace.
