5 WAYS TO CREATE A COSY BEDROOM
Styling your home is exciting but, if it’s not comfortable, especially in the bedroom where you spend a large amount of time resting, you won’t feel like being there.
The bedroom is a welcoming sanctuary, and here are some ways IKEA believes you can achieve the ultimate levels of cosiness.
- Lots and lots of texture makes things work! It is a dream on the senses when you are surrounded by textures that draw you in.
- Mix and match the textures of your duvets, pillows and throws, and really any other textile in your home with those that you are comfortable with.
- This adds an instant dose of personality and comfort.
- Be careful to not add in too many different fabrics, though, because that can make it look busy.
- Nothing says comfort more than placing your feet onto a cosy rug instead of the cold floors in the morning.
- Rugs help tie together a space and make it visually interesting too.
- This is also a good way to add some character to the bedroom if you feel it’s too sterile. IKEA has a wide selection of rugs that you can choose from, if you need inspiration.
- Layer blankets
- Every bed needs a comforter and sheets but make your bedroom cosier by layering multiple blankets and textures.
- Instead of one warm duvet and a simple white fitted sheet, you can use several throw blankets.
- Just think about the last time you were in a home store and were drawn to the bedding displays!
- Not only is it one of the easiest ways to make your home more beautiful, but plants make a space more liveable and inviting.
- Having plants in the space that you sleep in will also refresh the air.
- If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry about an indoor jungle and instead place a few plants in the empty corners or on a bookshelf.
- Adding a personal touch adds to the comfort that a room brings.
- This way, your body unconsciously recognises that the space is yours. And this is what makes it so much easier for you and your loved ones to unwind.
- Consider bringing in that personal touch with a photo wall, over the bed or anywhere within your view.
