Winter may seem like an endless season drenched by rainy weather, chilly temperatures, and dark nights that might make you feel blue. While winter lasts outside, create a warm home that can be your refuge.
In search of a more cosy, hygge house, where do you begin? Our suggestion: wrap up with a cup of hot cocoa and read on for our ideas on how to create a warm home this winter.
Block the blinding lights
Decide whether you want your space to be bright and airy or more “buttoned-up” and cosy. Express Essex Blinds offer all types of these blinds. Blinds open or shut depending on the weather; when they’re closed, light is lost. There are several fabric choices for shades that allow you to control brightness. Unless you want to show off your goods, they must be lifted up so that light can enter or be lowered to prevent nosy neighbours from peering through.
Lots of candles
Candles are a must-have for anyone wanting to add more intimacy to their home. Candles offer two distinct advantages: they provide a cosy light that warms up a space, and if you use scented candles, you may also improve the ambience of your house by adding fragrance. Dotting church or column candles around a room will distribute the light and warmth while also providing drama to your space. Just remember to blow them out before you go to sleep!
The ultimate method to increase the cosiness of your house is with cushions, throws, and bedding. When it comes to cushions, we think more is more. To create a cosy atmosphere in your room, pile them high on your sofa, chairs, and even purchase larger floor cushions to put around your coffee table. If you’re searching for the right sofa, don’t be restricted to just one style. Mix and match different textures, materials, and patterns to create maximum cosy impact. Velvet and chenille are lavish fabrics, while sheepskin and wool are the ultimate cosy fabrics with texture and warmth.
Let there be light
Winter is known for its dark mornings and long evenings, which might leave you with a less-than-optimistic attitude. While it may be dark and chilly outside, creating a warm, comfortable sanctuary in your house may help you forget about the misery.
A cosy scent
The scent is one of our most vibrant senses, which has the ability to evoke vivid recollections and emotions. This winter doesn’t undervalue the power of smell in creating a warm home atmosphere. Woody odours, such as a fresh, alpine forest or a hot, exotic scent that will transport you to sunnier climes and exotic locations are recommended.
Rugs are snug
Rugs may be used on a variety of flooring types, including hardwood and carpeted surfaces. Of course, rugs on bare floors add warmth to a room, but layering up carpets adds texture and depth to an area – the cosier the rugs are, the cushier your home will seem. Layers of rugs add softness underfoot, allowing you to avoid your slippers while also keeping you warm. Although who can resist slipping their feet into a pair of cosy sheepskin slippers?
