3. Incorporate Fluff and Fuzz — Nothing says “cozy” like a fuzzy blanket or pillow. Fur (or faux fur) instantly gives off a cozy vibe in any space. Whether you incorporate fuzzy throw pillows, a furry blanket, or even a fluffy rug or piece of furniture, it’s sure to boost the coziness factor in your home. Just looking at how warm these pieces look will make your guests want to curl up in your house!
4. Change Up Your Curtains — You’d be surprised at how big a role your window treatments play in making your home cozier.

If you really want to play around with curtains, try adding a curtain wall to a room in your home. Curtain walls are visually appealing, plus they material gives off a cozy effect.
These easy tips and tricks will have your home looking and feeling cozy in no time, especially in the cold winter months! Try one or several of them for maximum coziness this season.
