Your home is your oasis. It’s the place where you do everything from entertaining to relaxing. Because of this, it’s extremely important that you are happy with your home’s decor. Everything you surround yourself with can really make or break how you feel every day. Adding intriguing niches and nooks to your home is a great way to bring everything together. These accents can remind us to stop and relax each day.

Here are some easy ways to create unique niches around your home:

Add a Reading Nook

There isn’t a cozier feeling than curling up with a good book and a cup of tea. If you have an open corner in a room in your home, convert it into a book nook. Add a bookcase and a comfy recliner chair. Throw a knit blanket over the backside of the chair so the corner looks warm and inviting. Before you know it, everyone in your home will be reading a book in the nook.

Light Up Your Hallway

A lot of people forget to decorate their hallways because they are such small places. However, adding a little warmth and life to them can really brighten up your home. Try adding a small side table to your hallway. Then, top off the surface with a candle or diffuser. Not only do these items smell amazing, but they can also add to the overall aesthetic of your home. Is your home’s theme bohemian? Purchase a candle with a scent that fits the theme, like Indonesian sandalwood or lavender. Or if you don’t want to worry about a flame, try some battery-powered candles instead. That way, your hallway can stay lit all night long. You could even add a bench so you and your guests can stop and enjoy the scent of the candles.

Make a Comfy Corner

Do you have corners of your home that you’re just not sure what to do with? Create a comfy corner. Add some decorative boxes and storage baskets, and pile them with blankets and quilts. Everyone can benefit from a little comfort. It will make your home more inviting to guests and take up space in a corner where nothing else seems to fit. Keep the boxes open so anyone can see the blankets and your decor will look effortlessly chic. In addition, plush blankets are a great way to add a seasonal flair to your home. You can buy shrouds for each holiday so your decor always looks festive.

Consider adding an adorable armchair to the corner where anyone can kick back and relax. Drape a blanket over the chair so that if someone gets cold they can reach up and grab it.
