Fall is officially upon us; the nights are getting cool and our hats and scarfs will soon be making an appearance. With this chilly weather comes cozy nights curling up in bed, with a good book and a hot chocolate. But is your bedroom looking and feeling a little cold, and not particularly welcoming? If that’s the case here are five ways that you can make your bedroom a little haven this winter.
Get yourself a new bed/mattress
If you want to go all out this winter, get a new bed and a good mattress. You’ll struggle to function properly without a decent night’s sleep so why not do everything possible to make that happen. A successful sleep starts at the bottom of the bed; for inspiration, take a look at the collection of Divan Beds Centre – Bed Bases. Once you choose a welcoming, stylish bed, get a new mattress.
Invest in a Throw
A nice thick throw can make all the difference to your bedroom. You may wish to even opt for faux fur for that cozy and luxurious bedroom look. Not only does it add an extra layer of warmth, but just seeing a big warm blanket on your bed immediately looks inviting and makes you feel all snug.
If you haven’t already noticed, your bed is the most visually impactful thing in your room. Winter bedding can have such a huge effect on the feel of the entire room. Get some linen bedding with a lovely texture, or alternatively flannel and velvet are always good options. Use rich, luxurious colors that are sympathetic with the rest of the room to create a welcoming effect. Look on Wayfair.com for sheets, rugs, blankets and more to enhance the look of your bedroom.
Altering and adding lights are a great step to making your bedroom cozier, and with darker nights there is an additional need. Rather than just having one strong overhead light, try using smaller and softer lights such as fairy lights, low energy-saving bulbs, and candles. Fairy lights can be wrapped around almost anything from your headboard to your mirror or wardrobe. Candles add a gentle ambiance; go for a scented candle to make your room smell gorgeous and remind you of your favorite things. By having that gentle lighting in your bedroom it will help you wind down for the night and perhaps save on electricity.
Rugs have become such a statement piece in so many homes over the last few years – no matter what they are made of, they’re likely to bring comfort and warmth into any atmosphere. A rug will keep your toes toasty and your bedroom looking great. It is especially good for those who have wood flooring, as there is nothing worse than getting out of bed and putting your feet on a cold floor. With a rug, you’ll never have this problem again.
Finally, your cozy bedroom is now complete! Add some seasonal accessories too to evoke that charm and you’ll never want to leave your bedroom again. A makeover is just the thing you need before the long, cold winter sets in.
