Comfort is an inconspicuous concept, largely intangibleand even invisible. Getting into a cozy house, we just understand that it's cozy here, but we can not explain why. We are just here nice, comfortable, warm and light. And after all, that is interesting. Many, even the richest and most stylish houses are not always cozy, and sometimes in a small and cramped apartment, decorated without any special delicacies, a person feels quite comfortable and happy. What is the secret of comfort, and how to create coziness in the house? Let's try to figure it out. In the explanatory dictionary, the word "comfort" is explained as the quality of the living environment. The distinctive characteristics of this quality are comfort, convenience, kindness and warmth. And the most important quality of comfortable housing is considered to be fitness for a particular person, his way of life and thoughts. By the way, comfortable housing is so natural for any person that the coziness soon ceases to pay attention, perceiving it as a matter of course. But in a house where there is not enough comfort, a person feels "not at ease", feels uneasy and uncomfortable, becomes too irritable or falls into a depressed state. So a cozy home largely determines the quality of life as such. We suggest you use the seven commandments of a good housewife, which will help make the house really cozy.
Cleanliness and tidiness
It is not by chance that the cleanliness of the house is considered the firstcommand of a good housewife. A dirty house can not be cozy. We do not at all urge you to make a fetish out of purity and to seek in your home the sterility of the operating room (although in some places such sterility would not be superfluous). But all the same, cleanliness is not only necessary from time to time, but also to maintain constantly. Yes, this is a "sick" subject for many women: we do not have enough time, and we get tired at work - all this is so. However, if we are talking about comfort in the house, then without cleanliness and order here can not do. And it's not just about time-washed dishes, or hastily rubbed floors. Cleanliness must be real! And this means that blinds or curtains should not hide dull windows, and dust should be wiped not only in places accessible to the eye, but on top of shelves and cabinets. By the way, behind closed doors of cabinets should also reign order. And now look at the doors and the walls: greasy shoals, slammed door handles, not very clean switches on the walls - all this also does not add comfort to your house, as well as wallpaper that has come off somewhere or a dusty relief of plaster. By the way, clean should be curtains on the windows, and upholstered fabric of upholstered furniture. In general, any textiles in your home should always be clean: fabrics easily absorb odors and even if outwardly do not seem stained, can add a solid spoonful of tar to your barrel of honey. By the way, the smell in the house is also an important component of comfort.
The smell of any home is composed of manyaromas, as well as neutral or even not very pleasant smells. If you maintain cleanliness, then unpleasant odors (from a bin, toilet bowl, cat's tray) in your home should not be. However, the source of this smell can be a stale towel in the bathroom, a damp cloth in the kitchen, a "choked" umbrella in the hallway, and long-worn curtains on the windows, and dusting in the bookcases of the book. In short, almost any item in your house will easily become a source of unpleasant odor. Therefore - cleanliness and once again cleanliness. In addition to the good natural smell of the House, its "olfactory" image can be supplemented with other flavors. Use for this and ordinary air fresheners, and special devices (sachets, fragrant candles, essential oils, etc.). The smells of vanilla, bergamot, peppermint, lemon or grapefruit are the most cozy and warm smells, as well as the smell of cinnamon, verbena, fresh wood and coffee. And, of course, the smell of baking, which can not compete with any other (even the most refined) flavor. But here it is desirable to neutralize all other kitchen odors. By the way, the hood that perfectly copes with this task will help to get rid of the smell of rancid fat, as well as from the greasy plaque and soot on the walls and kitchen furniture.
Style and interior
Interior design in a single style - not at allfashionable chip. Note that almost all interior styles were formed over many decades (and even centuries!), Taking into account the living conditions of people in different regions, in areas with different climates and with their own cultural traditions. Therefore, each style is a kind of finished and perfect example of a harmonious interior design. To choose a style, of course, you need to take into account your personal taste preferences and your own ideas about the beauty and comfort of living space. Nevertheless, adhere to the laws of a certain style in the design of your house - half the success in solving the problem of creating a cozy interior. And it's not true that you can only call a cozy house, the interior of which is designed in some unassuming rural style with curtains on curtains and pillows on the couch. Fashionable styles of loft, high-tech, minimalism also have the right to claim the title of cozy, if people living in such interiors feel comfortable and happy.
Light and color
A cozy house should be light and warm. Light - in the sense of well and properly lit, and warm - in the sense of finished in a warm color scheme. By the way, about warm colors. Strangely enough, but traditionally warm shades of color palette are not always able to make the house cozy. Here, rather, their presence in the colors of the house and a harmonious combination with any other colors is important. And even quite unpolished black and white interior can look not only stylish, but also quite cozy. Cozy are the colors such as blue, beige, sand, green, terracotta, lilac. Too bright colors, like multicolor, will make the interior of your house memorable and catchy, but hardly cozy. Although the presence of bright colors as separate accent spots is welcomed by many interior designers. Well, each artist has his own vision of aesthetic perfection, and every master has his own idea of convenience. Therefore, the main rule of choosing the main color of the interior - that the eye was nice, and the heart is happy. About the light, as an important component of a cozy home, much to say is not necessary. Everything is so clear - a cozy house should be bright. Therefore, no dim or burnt out bulbs and dirty bubbles. And it is desirable that in each room of your house there was not one single chandelier under the ceiling, but at least two sources of lighting.
Live green plants in the house - anotheran indispensable element of a cozy interior. Do you think why all the respectable offices try to decorate the interior with indoor plants (true, more often - artificial ones)? Yes, because they create an atmosphere of coziness, make people feel comfortable in the workplace, which means they will work better. What, then, is there to talk about living quarters? Naturally, indoor flowers will not only decorate the interior, but will also bring unquestionable benefits. First, indoor flowers are able to purify the air and have a beneficial effect on the energy of the house. Secondly, plants in the house can become healers of physical and mental ailments. And thirdly, indoor flowers can act as mascots.
A house without textiles would soon resemble an office,than a dwelling. Fabric - a substance "alive", breathable and able to store the smells of your home (not only good, by the way). Therefore, a truly cozy home just needs to be decorated with textile elements. These are all kinds of pads and little things, curtains and tablecloths, napkins and bedspreads. And, in addition, the fabrics can be used and when decorating walls, creating panels or other decorative elements of the interior. Naturally, the fabrics should be natural, and all textile ornaments are clean. This applies not only to decorative elements or upholstery fabric on upholstered furniture, but things are quite practical purpose (towels, bed linens, blankets blankets).
If to you in your house it is easy, convenient and pleasant,it means that your house can be safely called cozy, because it meets one of the main conditions of comfortable housing - the adaptation to the habits, character and way of life of the person himself. And every concrete person is an individual, that's why a cozy house should differ in individuality. What does it mean? And this means that the interior of your house not only should not be a copy of some other (albeit very stylish) interior, but have your own "face" and "character." How? Depends on who lives in the house. Comfort is a good mood, peace and contentment. By and large, coziness is a feeling of happiness, happiness to have your home. This is the main secret of coziness, and how to create a cosiness in the house, you probably already know. Take Action! We advise you to read:
