5 Tips To Cozy Up Your Bedroom This Winter

5 Tips To Cozy Up Your Bedroom This Winter

Summer is almost over and with wet and cold weather just around the corner, it’s time to cozy up your bedroom for winter. For many of us, there is nothing better than watching the rain while nestled in bed under the covers enjoying some hot chocolate or your favourite Nespresso!

We can all agree that a winter bedroom should be delightfully cozy, comfortable and with a warm atmosphere. Besides a full renovation or buying a new property, there are many simpler ways to turn your bedroom into a warm, winter retreat.

Winter Bedding and Warm Colours

Bedrooms are all about quality, comfortable beds and what better way to add personality, character and comfort than with perfect winter bedding. You’d be surprised what a big difference it makes just switching out your bedding as it can change the entire feel of the room. Linen bedding is generally the most popular but flannel or velvet still do the trick. For ultimate visual impact, find the right mix of warm (red, orange, yellow) and cool colours (blue, green, grey).

Add Some Warmth With Throws, Blankets and Quilts

If you don’t want to spend a fortune on new winter bedding just yet, simply add a dark and warm throw, blanket or quilt. Not only does it add wintery warmth, it looks stunning too! Anyone who has slept under a ‘faux fur’ throw knows exactly what we’re talking about.

Flipping The Mattress

Some mattress manufacturers recommend turning or flipping your mattress with the change of seasons. Many believe that turning the mattress so that your head and feet swap, results in better sleep especially when adding new bedding. This may be true in many cases but it also depends from person-to-person and mattress quality. With advances in technology, there are several great affordable choices including pocket spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses, latex or continuous coil mattresses.

Wintery Floors, Walls and Windows

There’s nothing better than walking around barefoot but maybe not so much in winter. The simple solution is carpets, carpets and more carpets. Add some wintery texture to your floors with a few thick rugs to keep your tootsies warm. Wool is always a great option as it looks appealing and feels heavenly under foot.

Although windows bring in much needed natural light, they also let the cold in while warm air escapes especially in older homes. A good set of block out blinds or thick curtains will add a warm, cozy look and feel.

Colours are almost as important as décor and choosing the right wall paint makes all the difference. In winter, paint your bedroom with hues ranging from golds, oranges to reds. If you have white walls, use additional rugs, furniture and accessories as this will light up your space in style.

A Minimalist Bedroom

Contrary to popular belief, more stuff does not mean a cozier environment. Less is almost always more and particularly when it comes to creating a comfortable and calming atmosphere. Get rid of all the clutter on the floor, shelves and walls by only choosing a few art pieces, decorations or furniture items. You’ll thank us later!
