4 Ways to make your cottage feel like home

There’s no place like home! It is the main place we feel like our true selves. And this is super important because we need a place to just relax, unwind and recharge. Here are a few ways you can make your cottage in Muskoka feel like home! 

  1. Make it smell like home

Making your place smell nice is one of the best tips we could ever give you! Depending on the scent you prefer, you can ignite diverse emotions and responses. A more floral scent will make it feel happier. On the other hand, a deeped scent, like cinnamon, can make it more comfortable and cozy.

Here at The Muskoka Store, we have scented candles that will make your cottage feel way more like a home! Check out our collection of Candles online now! 

  1. Cook homemade meals

Is there anything better than that delicious homemade food you cook at home? We can answer that: absolutely not! It just tastes better. Spending time with family in the kitchen, preparing a homemade meal, sitting around the table and enjoying it together. Fresh, homemade food will always taste better than Uber Eats or some pre-made dish.

At The Muskoka Store, there are many dishware options to help you cook and serve the best homemade meals! Find more kitchenware gems! 

  1. Bring outside, inside using plants

Not only do indoor plants enhance the overall appearance of a space, but studies show they boost moods, increase creativity, reduce stress, and eliminate air pollutants. Plants make for a healthier, happier you. Indoor plants don't just look good, they can make us feel good, too! 

Here at The Muskoka Store, we have a great design planter. With it, you will not only make your cottage feel like home — you will make a home for your plant too! 

  1. Don’t forget the lights! 

The lighting in your home impacts how you perceive it. A brighter space is more vibrant and lively and dimming the light makes for a better mood at night while eating or watching your favourite movie!

Here at The Muskoka Store, you will find many options to illuminate your cottage and make it feel like home! We have table lamps — that will not only light up your place, but also make it look stylish! View some of our other lighting options such as lamps and lanterns!
