With winter just around the corner, you may be looking for ways to make your home cosy and snug ready for the season ahead. There’s nothing better than coming in from a long cold, winter walk to be greeted with wonderful scents, warm and welcoming accessories, and the room a perfectly toasty temperature. There are many simple ways you can change up your home ready for the winter season, and in this post, we are going to look at four simple ways to make your home cosy.
Choose cosy colours
When you want to give your home a quick update, an easy way to do it is by changing up the colour. To get your home winter ready, consider changing up the colour of a room for a winter hue. Whether you choose to do it yourself or rely on a professional decorator to make your home look beautiful, think about some lovely colours to paint your room. Colours such as deep berries, forest greens, charcoal and navy are all intriguing colours that can bring cosiness to a room when accessorised correctly. Alternatively, you could go for a more neutral colour like classic creams or light greys and incorporate colour in other ways like with a textured rug or pattern knitted cushions.
Add some nature
We tend to feel better when we’ve been outdoors as nature has a way of reconnecting us with the world. A simple way to make a room cosy is by adding some wooden furniture to a room, this will work particularly well with dark palettes. Wood is versatile and you can opt for wooden floors if you prefer, or consider items like an oak table or wooden shelves. You can add woodland accessories to your home like a fox basket, a cute woodland scene tealight holder, or woodland animal bedding. Pine cones also work as great accessories around the home and you can make a winter wreath or an elegant table display
Create extra light
With fewer daylight hours in winter, it’s important to ensure your home is well lit. The right amount of light can help create the perfect ambience. Think soft lighting for the background, a dimmer light switch can make it easier to find the right lighting. Warm LED bulbs can give the room some extra warmth. If you have a fireplace, make this the primary source of your light when it’s a chilly evening for perfect cosy vibes.
New season scents
There are so many scents associated with winter, and fragrance is a personal thing. You may opt for home fragrances to see you through the festive period, scents like cinnamon, vanilla, fig, or chestnut. Or you may be looking for something to see you through until spring, like fruit or forestry fragrances. Add diffuses around your home with wintery scents or try making your own potpourri. For ultimate cosiness though, scented candles are great to have in rooms around your home.
If you’re looking to make your home cosy this winter, hopefully, these four simple ways that we have outlined will help you achieve the perfect snug winter vibes.
