How do you create an extra level of cosiness in your home? The trick is to ensure you are doing what makes you feel comfortable and happy, and this will go a long way in creating a space you want to sit down and relax in.
A cosy home means something different to everyone you talk to, which is why, when you choose to increase comfort in your home, it can be something very personal. With this in mind, this post has some suggestions on improving how cosy your home is that you tailor to your taste.
Add A Fire
Nothing screams cosy like a roaring fire. However, not everyone has the luxury of having an open flame fire reminiscent of a wood cabin in the woods and piles of logs surrounding them. However, that doesn't mean you must be stuck with the Netflix fire screen. You can purchase an electric fireplace in a range of sizes and styles that replicates the appearance of a real flame without the safety aspect. Perfect for those with no chimney in their home or who need a safer alternative for young children. But if you want something that instantly screams "warm and cosy", then you need to add a fire, be it electric, gas, coal or wood.
There is no denying that a hard bare floor holds no appeal in a cold room. For this reason, you want to add a soft plush rug for underfoot comfort in the cold weather. However, layering your rugs cannot only add an extra layer of warmth to your floors to increase the cosy factor but give you an added style element too. In days gone past, many households layered rugs over bare flooring to retain heat and take the chill of a room, and that concept still holds true to this day.
Cushions and Blankets
If you really want to get down and comfy in your home, you need an abundance of pillows and blankets. Everything is more comfortable with blankets and cushions. Plus, it's a cost-effective way to reduce heating bills too.
Don't be shy when it comes to adding blankets and pillows; the more, the merrier in this case.
Candles and Lamps
You can use real candles or battery-powered candle lights along with various lamps to help you create the perfect vibe for your room. Stark bright lighting is great for seeing everything; however, when you need to be cosy, you want to have softer lighting that has more of a yellow glow; choose warm white lights, not cool white. For this reason, adding candles and lamps can help you to get the atmosphere just right to help you relax and unwind.
Lastly, curtains are an excellent way to help you create comfort in your home and allow you to shut out the world, turn the lights down, and relax. From short curtains to floor length, blackout to sheer, there are various styles and designs you can choose from to enhance the aesthetic of your room and help you tie everything together for the perfect cosy ambience.
There are many different ways you can make your home more comfortable. These tips can help you find a place to get started and create the perfect room that works for you.
