To make your bedroom a cozy oasis there is no need to spend a fortune. Here are a few tips for creating the cozy bedroom of your dreams.
- Try Dark Hues
To make a room feel larger light colors are great, but to create a perfect space to relax a darker hue is the best. Just make sure to add plush bed linens.
- Adjust the Lighting
Lighting can make or break a room. For a cozy bedroom choose soft lighting. A chandelier with a dimmer is a great choice if overhead lighting is a must.
- Layer Rugs
Rugs are a great way to add warmth, texture, and, of course, color to your bedroom. For an extra-comfy look try layering rugs in different patterns and shapes.
- Bring on the Blankets
You can never have too many throws when creating a cozy bedroom. Make sure to add an assortment of textured throws in soft neutrals.
- Create a Canopy
Draping your bed in ethereal textiles, for instance, a white canopy, is a no-fail way to add an extra comfort factor to your bedroom.
- Choose the Right Pieces
To create a nature-lover’s paradise add warm wooden accents, and a vase filled with fresh blooms on the nightstand shelf.
- Pile on the Pillows
The easiest way to make a bedroom cozy is by adding a huge pile of fluffy pillows. For a super-comfy look mix and match pillows.
- Add Ceiling Beams
Wooden ceiling beams are a smart architectural way to add warmth to a space.
- Create a Reading Nook
To cuddle up and read a window seat is a great place. If adding a window seat is not possible, create a quiet nook in your bedroom.
- Place Furniture Strategically
Placement of furniture can have a great impact on making a bedroom look cozy. Place chairs facing each other when creating a seating nook. This will bring an intimate feel to your bedroom.
- Use Soft Neutrals
To any style bedroom a neutral color palette adds a calming effect. To spice things up add metallic accents, texture, patterns and vintage finds.
- Sprinkle In Floral Accents
Bring in floral elements as feminine touches can bring a soft, cozy feel to your bedroom.
- Decorate in All White
If you think white is boring, it is time for a rethink. An all white bedroom will make you feel as though you're at the spa.
- Don't Forget the Foot of the Bed
Place some furniture at the foot of the bed if you have the space. Display something that acts as extra storage.
- Skip Overhead Lighting
To provide enough lighting without the harsh glare from an overhead light place a couple of lamps on either side of your bed.
- Display Your Books
By replacing a traditional headboard with a bookshelf you can bring a cozy library feel to your bedroom.
- Invest in Good Bedding
Bedding is the best thing to spend your money on aside from window treatments. Choose high-quality, soft fabrics.
