Tips for Making Your Holiday Cottage Feel Like Home!

Tips for Making Your Holiday Cottage Feel Like Home

If you’re lucky enough to own a holiday cottage either here in the UK or abroad, I’m sure you’ll be wanting to know how to make it feel like home. Owning a property to holiday in is ideal for being able to get away for a quick break whenever you want. Unfortunately, while I’m sure you’d like to spend all of your time in your holiday cottage, work commitments mean that you spend most of the year living at home. This can mean that you don’t feel as comfortable as you do at home when living in your holiday cottage. Here are a few tips for making your holiday cottage feel like a home from home.

Decorate It with Pictures of Your Family

One thing that helps to make a house a home is pictures dotted around the place of beloved friends and family members. We all like to look at pictures of our loved ones when feeling a little down, and this also helps to make a space personal to you and your family. So buy some new photo frames and print some of your favourite family pictures to display all around your holiday cottage.

Install Some Mood Lighting to Give It That Cozy Feel

We all like to feel cosy at home, in our own safe haven. The perfect way to give your holiday cottage that cosy feel is to install some lighting that will set the perfect atmosphere. Simple lighting like fairy lights or candles will dim the light perfectly in the evening. If you want something more permanent, then buy some lighting with dimming features. Hire a local tradesman to fit your lighting to avoid a stressful DIY situation while on your holidays.

Go For the Same Colour Theme In Your Holiday Cottage

I’m sure that your home has its own colour scheme, so transfer this to your holiday cottage to make it feel like a home from home. It doesn’t have to be a permanent, time consuming change like painting the walls to copy your home’s colour scheme. Things as simple as rugs and bedding will help to give your holiday cottage that overall colour. If you also have a pattern theme at home, give your holiday cottage this theme as well.

Try to Spend as Much Time There as Possible!

This is definitely the best way to make your holiday cottage feel like home. The great thing about having a holiday property is that you can go to it whenever you want. If you have a spare weekend free then pack up your car or book your flights and have a relaxing weekend to recuperate from a long week at work.

Using our easy tips will definitely help you to give your holiday cottage that homely feel that you’re looking for. Make sure it’s cozy and has everything that you need to live, this will mean you don’t have to pack loads of things when visiting.
