How to Cosy Up Your Bedroom

Today I have a great post for you, looking at different ways you can cosy up your bedroom. If you’re looking for some top tips for a quick bedroom makeover, then read on!

Great tips and ideas on how create a cosy, homely bedroom perfect for any budget and any size bedroom. Lighting, accessories and colours that make a difference. When it comes to creating the perfect bedroom, there are no set design rules. We all have differing tastes; some people are drawn to modern and sophisticated, some are drawn to shabby chic or French country, and others embrace vibrant pops of colour and unique décor accents.

Although taste may vary from person to person, one thing that applies to every bedroom design is that comfort or cosy factor. So here is how to achieve the comfortable feeling, regardless of your décor preferences.

A cosy bedroom is one full of relaxing energy that promotes enjoyment and sleep. It is achieved through balance, texture, and a good decorative eye, as well as by following some basic design concepts.

Go with natural tones

Great tips and ideas on how create a cosy, homely bedroom perfect for any budget and any size bedroom. Lighting, accessories and colours that make a difference. Cosy doesn’t have to mean whites and pastels, you can actually achieve a comfy atmosphere with dark tones as well that are usually perceived to be cold, as long as you do it right. Complement dark colours with pops of other warm colours, and create intriguing and relaxing contrasts. Also be sure to balance design. Keep it simple and free of clutter. A busy room is a stressful zone; reducing the “noise” and the chaos adds instant relaxation and cosiness.

Add instant warmth

Aside from adding an obvious heat source, like a fireplace, you can also add warmth to a room by choosing the right bed linens. In general, your bed is perhaps the biggest comfort factor in your room. Of course, the physical comfort factor comes down to the quality of your mattress; if it’s older than 10 years, then out with the old and in with the new – just be sure to read a review before investing. Aside from your bed, you can visually punch up the snug and warmth of your room by adding luxurious linens and textured throws. Knitted wool throws and cashmere, as well as single tone cotton linen throws, all add unexpected warm notes to a room.

Light control

Use some basic lighting design rules and optimise and control natural light with curtains, while strategically placing lamps and unnatural light sources throughout the room. Pick light that matches your style – in a modern bedroom, that might be recessed lighting, whereas in French country it would more likely be elegant wall sconces. Furthermore, warmer light bulbs over cold LEDs can also go a long way.

Add a rug

You would be surprised how much a rug can do to cosy up a space. Position it underneath or beside the bed so that your feet experience a warm and soft landing in the morning when you get out of bed, instead of coming in contact with a cold floor.

Ultimately, however you decide to design your bedroom, you want to end up with a room that makes you feel at ease and comfortable at the end of the day. But going for that comfort or cosiness factor doesn’t have to compromise on your chosen design. You can make a cool, modern design look as good as a shabby chic design if you add the right touches.
