Your home is a shelter against the demands of the outside world. Whether you live in a house or an apartment, where you bunker down for the night is more than just a place to sleep. It is where you and your family create memories, share meals, and recharge your batteries.

Here are some ideas to add inviting warmth to your home:

1.      Display your children’s artwork

Along with hanging your children’s artwork on the fridge, there are unique options to show off their artistic ability. Try framing the artwork and display it in a prominent place in your home. You can also 3D print your child’s crayon drawing for a one-of-a-kind keepsake.

2.      Create warmth with lighting

Ambient lighting can add warmth and beauty to your home. Chic lamps, chandeliers, and wall lighting are an easy way to add style and light up your home. 3D printed lithophanes are another fantastic detail.

3.      Display heirlooms and keepsakes

Bring out Grandma’s old quilt, prized teapot, your uncle’s prized beer stein collection, or your aunt’s lace placemats. Showing off your family’s heirlooms is a great way to make your house feel like a home.

4.      Personalize your light switches

Customize your light switches with 3D printed designs. Changing light switches to match the season is a fun touch or personalize a light switch with your own design.

5.      Hang pictures of your family

Proudly show off your favorite family portraits. Hang up those fun vacation photos or your kids being goofy. Another option is 3D printed mini-mes of your family to add a unique touch to your photo collection.

6.      Use inviting scents

Add an extra layer of comfort with great-smelling scents. Candles, oils, or diffusers are a wonderful way to add fragrance to your home. Aromatherapy can help you and your family relax and unwind from the day.

7.      Show off your pet

Show what your furry friend means to you with a picture of your pet. You can even get 3D printed pet plaques to hang in a prominent place on the mantelpiece.

8.      Exhibit your hobby

Whether it’s knitting, pottery, photography, or something else, displaying your hobby is a fantastic way to personalize your home and show your skills. Bonus: You can create your items just the way you like them.

9.      Bake cookies with your family

Spending time with your family by doing something fun like baking cookies brings everyone together. You don’t need to get fancy; you can always use premade cookie dough if baking isn’t your thing. 3D printed cookie cutters are a fun way to personalize your cookies. Plus, your home will have the smell of freshly baked cookies.

10.     Create a family tree scrapbook page

Get out your scissors, markers, and stamps to create a fun family memory. Make it a family project and have your kids make their own page, too. Pick your favorite photo and create a memorable page. Once you’re done, you can either keep the page in the scrapbook or frame it and hang it up for fun reminders of good memories. Check out 3D printed customizable stamps.

11.     Add plants to your décor

Plants are a great way to add freshness and life to your home. Find the plants and flowers to suit your taste. There are many different arrangements and houseplants to choose from and you can spice up a plant with unique vases. For those with a black thumb, try easy-to-care for plants such as snake plants, crotons, peace lilies, or aloe vera.

12.     Warm up with cozy blankets

Warm blankets on cold winter nights are a must. Dig out your old quilts and colorful blankets to use as throws on the couch. If you don’t have anything colorful, get creative and sew on patches, borders, or designs onto your blankets. If you’re not the sewing type, buy a fun patterned throw and warm up on those winter nights!
