The colder months are fast setting in, and the last thing you want is to come home from a long day of work to a chilly home. Here are a few tips to help you make your home feel more cosy and warm, no matter how cold it is outside.
Perfect your lighting
The lighting in your home will affect the entire feel and atmosphere, and of course cosiness, so it’s important to get it right.
Good lighting doesn’t always mean all lights should be blazing, it’s about finding a balance and warmth that works well. There are different light bulbs, or light bulb settings if you have smart lights, that have more of a warm glow to them.
You can also use candles to help perfect the lighting in your home. There’s nothing cosier than a candle lighting up the room, and filling the room with warm winter scents.
Fairy lights are also a quick and festive fix for poor lighting.
Throws, blankets and cushions
There’s nothing we love to do more in winter than snuggle up on the sofa under a blanket. So why not have a blanket or throw, and the perfect amount of pillows waiting for you to jump under?
By stylishly placing these items, you’ll not only make your home look great, but it will be inviting.
If you have leather furniture, you probably know the struggle of cold leather against your skin. A soft throw on leather furniture can make all the difference.
Make your bed as comfy as possible
When you come home from a long cold day, you’ll probably be looking forward to going to bed. So it makes sense to make your bed as inviting as possible. This way, you’ll be even more excited for bedtime.
Try adding more pillows and cushions, blankets and throws. A fresh duvet cover can also feel amazing, and if you really want to prepare for winter, you might want to consider investing in a thicker and heavier duvet.
