If your bedroom leaves you feeling cold rather than cosy, something has got to change! This is a room that should provide you with ultimate comfort and ease. Not feelings of anxiety. Your bedroom should entice you in at the end of each day. No encourage you to sleep downstairs instead. It doesn’t have to be cold outside to make your bedroom feel cosier. Welcoming surroundings can actually help you to relax and create a better environment for sleeping. So if your bedroom is currently looking too bare, here are some ways to fill it with warmth and personality.
Use darker colours
If you’re only used to painting your walls with light colours, this might seem intimidating. But sometimes too much white or light grey can wash out a room making it feel clinical. Darker colours can transform the look of your bedroom and make it feel less cold when you enter. From burnt orange to charcoal greys, you can add a real sense of drama with these colours. This is also one of the most cost-effective methods of making your room feel cosy. Paint can be sourced online or from interior design store for inexpensive prices. Use sample pots to choose the right colour and then paint your walls in this darker shade. To prevent the room from feeling claustrophobic, combine dark walls with light coloured furniture.
Add a stove or fireplace
If you have available space in your bedroom, why not add a wood burning stove or fireplace. This will take the comfort of your bedroom from minor to major. Either of these options can heat up your bedroom, making them ideal for colder weather. Besides, nothing can provide instant feelings of cosy comfort than seeing a roaring fire and a log stack. It’s a novel addition to your home that could potentially add value too. You could install a stylish modern stove or see if you can restore an original fireplace back to it’s former glory. Always have fireplace and stove installation carried out by a trained professional to ensure safety. Also never leave children in your bedroom when your stove is lit.
Add fairy lights
Fairy lights are something that many people overlook in fear that they are too childish. While this is true to some degree, they can also make your bedroom feel incredibly cosy. Their dim lighting can be an excellent alternative to using your main light fixture. You can wrap them around your bed frame or tack them onto the walls. You might even want to hang them from the ceiling. Once they are turned on they will create a sense of calm that will relax you immediately. Look for fairy lights with metallic wires to boost their glow even more.
So what are you waiting for? Now you know what you have to do to boost the cosy factor of your bedroom, all you have to do is get started. When your bedroom is this enjoyable to spend time in, you won’t want to spend time anywhere else.
