A Beginners Guide to Hygge for your Home

Bring the outdoors inside

You don’t have to go out and collect sticks and twigs and scatter them on your table to bring the outdoors inside. You can do this by opening the windows, getting some potted plants, or finding
a way to add some natural greenery to your space.

If you’re worried about having bugs or maintaining a plant, you could also consider adding some fake greenery. This is a good idea if you have pets or children who may mess with your plants. Trust me, I have my fair share of faux plants mixed in my real plants! I have this adorable trio of plants in my kitchen and love them. I also have 3 of these gorgeous potted palms in my dining area. I also just added these beautiful Preserved Magnolia Stems to my home. They’re timeless and beautiful year round. 

Use candles and natural light to light up your home 

A great way to add a little hygge to your home is by focusing on your lighting. Two great places to start are with candles and natural light. Candles are HUGE in hygge and should be incorporated throughout your home! Great spots for candles include your dining room, coffee table, bedside table, and even the edge of your tub. Don’t forget that candles aren’t the only form of light!

Whenever you can, open up your curtains and let that natural sunlight into your home. These tips and tricks will help your home feel brighter and more inviting.

If you need more lamp options, I love this affordable lamp option. At only $12, it won’t set you back and it helps create the perfect cozy glow in any space. I have one in my kitchen and one in my bedroom. A floor lamp is great to put in the corner to avoid the use of overhead lighting and to keep things cozy as well. 

Make your home more inviting

Your furniture can convey cozy and comfort while also providing function for your home. Some ottomans and extra seating in your living room will invite guests to come to join you in your living space while providing comfortable places to sit. However, also adding something simple like a barstool to your kitchen high top counters can make spending time with family without getting in your way easy! Hygge is about spending time with those you love about and getting into a cozy space together. So making this option seamless is what will make hygge fit into your home.

Embrace all things cozy for hygge

Hygge isn’t about throwing blankets and pillows all over the place; it’s about embracing a relaxed way of life. You want to add comfort to your space and make them easily available. I find that having a few throw pillows on the couch and some blankets nearby can be just the right way to get me into the hygge mindset. When looking at a space, ask yourself what you could do to make it cozier and inviting. Sometimes it’s adding a scented candle, removing the curtains, or adding a blanket to get the job done. I’ve noticed that by not hanging curtains in my living and dining room, it’s made my  home feel less cluttered and just as cozy. 

 


Home is the central spot for hygge living, so it’s important to take the time to make it your own. Regardless if you own or rent, have an 800 sq ft home or a 3800 sq ft home, you can easily implement this beginners guide to hygge so you have a cozy home you will love. Hopefully, this beginners guide to hygge has helped you find a few ways to embrace hygge in your own home so you can start living cozy too!
