We all spend a lot of time in our homes and because of that, I want my home to be comfortable and awesome. There are tons of ways you can make your home awesome by just purchasing a few new things for it or redoing a whole room!
This spring I am going to be buying some new things for our home. I want our home to be inviting to my guests, but an oasis for me! A place that I can be comfy and at peace! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make this happen either. Just be smart and your money will go a long way.
4 Ways To Make Your Home Awesome!
1. Since my bedroom is my everything, I like it to be SO comfy, clean and inviting. To make this happen, I will be getting new bedding and some throw pillows for our king sized bed! I will be choosing lighter colors for the spring/summertime to make my room more bright looking. Choosing lighter shades for your room (or any room) can make a huge difference on not only the room itself but the feeling you get when you step into that room. Sometimes lighter colors will even make rooms appear larger!
2.Another room I like to be comfortable and inviting is our bathrooms. I like a clean, clutter-free bathroom to walk into. I also like my bathtub and shower stall to be inviting and spacious! I like to add pretty soaps in my shower and bathtub not only for decoration but to used to. I try to always have some on hand so I can quickly spruce up those areas. I also am fond of artificial flowers in mason jars on my bathroom counters to give my bathroom a spa-like feel!
3.My living room is another place or spot in my home that must be nice and comfy! This is the first place that company sees when they visit and I want my friends and family to feel welcomed and really comfortable! Having nice couches, fuzzy carpets and nice lighting will do the trick! Even hanging new pictures on the wall or putting lighting scented candles around your living room work wonders!
4.Last but not least, I want my kitchen to represent comfort and good times. To do that, I tend to not only have scented candles burning (like I do in my living room), but I also love to add a nice, bright colored mat on the floor by my sink, light colored blinds above my sink on my window and a yummy fruit dish on my counter for anyone to grab and nibble on at anytime! It is also important to have comfy chairs or bar stools for my friends and family to sit on when they enter my kitchen. The kitchen is where all the food and good conversations are at!
Making your home awesome (if it is not already!) can take some time, but is so much fun to do. With every season, you can switch things up a bit and make your home different each time. I love changing around our furniture every few months or like I said above, switching out our bedding to be
I love changing around our furniture every few months or like I said above, switching out our bedding to be brighter and fun colored during the spring/summer months. There are so many ways to make things in your home more inviting and awesome!
Another area of our home that needs attention is our covered deck area. There is SO much potential there. I want to eventually get a porch swing, small table, and chairs so that when we do some grilling this season, we will have a comfy place to sit and eat.
I also wouldn’t mind planting a few flowering plants around our covered deck area just to make things more cheery outside. And, I would love to have a hanging outdoor planter (or 4!) hanging around our home in different areas. There are SO many things I can do and I am getting really exciting writing about it all. This is making me more motivated.
Whether you are looking to update your home or just add a few things to make it more awesome, just know it is doable! You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg doing these things. It can be fun and you can make it a family thing too! If you have kids, get them involved! Let them redo their rooms, and have fun with it. It is all about fun, isn’t it?
So much one can do! I can’t wait to see how my home will turn out. The small things I do now and the things I will be adding to it, will make my home so comfy and inviting! Maybe I should plan for a spring get together with a few of my friends soon, to show off my home!
What things do you do to your home to make it more awesome? I want to know!

I like to add seasonal accents to the guest bathrooms. Last fall, I had a cute little pumpkin night light and pumpkin shaped soap dispenser.
Kathy Pease says
I usually drink beer..You know how they say someone looks better if you are drinking..The same with your house..lol No but honestly I love to change things up by changing curtains or adding new accent furniture..Now I have to try some spring cleaning..Oh my!
Melissa Storms says
I feel the same way about my bathroom. I keep nice hand soaps and lotions in my master bath, it is a little treat for myself.
I totally agree about lighter colors on the wall. Dark colors can make a room feel claustrophobic.

I need to redo my bedroom !
Darren Scrubb says
Great tips I will use for when I buy my house for sure.
Ashley Dionne says
I think the living room is so important to make awesome, its were my family gets together and watch movies or play board games. I think a nice big couch and a comfy rug make it so cozy!
I’ve been redoing our bedroom also.
Painted a dresser and nightstand to match the bedding.
It is looking awesome!
These are great ideas. I rearrange my living room and my bedroom all the time. Just such a easy cheap way to make your house look amazing
ANNETTE FISHER says
GREAT TIPS AND YOU ARE RIGHT THE BEDDING THE MAIN FOCUS POINT. I DO USE BEDDING SET AND MATCHING CURTINS.
We just got our bedroom where I’m mostly happy with it. I AGREE with you, bedding is so important! I like our bed to have a luxury hotel feel so I use a white quilt and white pillowcases with a blue-grey sheet set. It looks great with our dark wood bed. The living room is still a work in progress. With me at home all day with our three year old daughter it’s tough for the space not to look like a play room. We’re working on toy storage and moving less used toys to her room. I need to add curtains and some more art.
Cynthia R says
We painted our living room a nice calm blue and got new white wood blinds, it has really made a difference!
Audrey T says
I love using decorative pillows. They come in so many different shapes, fabric and colors!
Ashley Santillanes says
We are in the process of renovating our home to finally make it feel more “homey”. My husband and i just started getting into DIY so we are making a lot of our own furnishings and what not.
vickie couturier says
i love vintage and antiques,,but the rustic kind not the too fancy to sit on kind
We try to find local art from the markets around the area to brighten our house and add color.
Calvin F. says
Awesome tips, I make sure I have plants here in there to help clear the air inside the house.
Nice ideas! Now that it’s late April I’m definitely in the renovating mood for this apartment.
Janet W. says
Hanging nice pictures or paintings on the wall really adds a new element to your home. Great ideas!
These are some great tips. We have been moving so frequently that we haven’t made our home that welcoming. now that we are more stable we could use these.
These are all great tips. I like have fresh cut flowers in my dining room.
Now I am motivated to make changes to my own home!
Cynthia C says
I’m getting new windows this spring and that will make a big difference.
Victoria Scott says
I move furniture around every 6 months! It really does make things look new. The best place is when I move things around in our bedroom – it makes us sleep better!
