We all crave the creature comforts of a cozy, well-designed home. What changes would  make your home into your favorite place to be?

For many, it is opening up the home by perhaps removing a  wall, or having more windows installed to bring in the outdoors. This gives a more open feel to the home with the inclusion of natural light, and allowing the eye to travel farther than just the wall!

Changing out and adding more lighting to your home helps as well. A poorly lit room looks small, dark and cramped, while a brightly lit room appears open, airy and welcoming. You can have the ceiling lights replaced with updated fixtures and have additional lights installed in dark corners.

You might not realize it, but changing out the hardware on the kitchen cabinets will make a nice change as well. Sometimes we get used to seeing something and just don’t really “see it” anymore, and yet, it affects us. Try new hardware, and maybe new finishing on those cabinets as well!
