Tips for making your home cosy this winter

Christmas has been and gone, but we’ve still got a few months of chilly winter weather to get through. You may have turned your heating up, but if your interior design scheme’s still in “summer mode”, you might find your home’s aesthetics are making you feel a little cold.

Here, we’ll go over some great interior design tips for making your home that much cosier over winter.

Just like any interior design project, making your home feel cosier can be helped along massively by simply playing with the colour scheme. Whether you’re painting a room or simply adding complementary splashes of colour with other pieces of décor, go for homely, rich tones.

Warm golds, ochres, and yellows, classic terracotta, deep oranges and corals, olive green, and lusty shades of red are all good choices. Avoid any pale colours, as well as pink, violet, blue and white.

If you’re in the market for reclaimed wood furniture or other wooden pieces of décor, make sure these are a cosy hue as well. Look for warm, rich woods like our Warm, Natural or Classic colours. Once you give your colour scheme a cosy makeover, you’ll have a great canvas for further experiments.

Many people don’t realise it, but the layout of their furniture can have a profound impact on how cosy their interior feels. The way you lay out your furniture and décor should be open and inviting rather than angular, formal, and characterised by sharp edges.

Try to create flowing lines around spaces in circular and hexagonal shapes, as opposed to squares and L-shapes.

Instead of letting your lounge develop the cold, flattened-out feel of a doctor’s waiting room with everything pushed against corners and walls, bring pieces of furniture inward for a more friendly and intimate atmosphere.

There’s nothing cosier than a heap of logs crackling and hissing on an open fire. If you’ve got a fireplace that’s been neglected for years, it may be time to stock up on wood, dust away the cobwebs, and redecorate the mantlepiece.

If you don’t have a chimney, you can get a similar effect with a small, stand-alone gel-flame fireplace. Failing that, bring the cosy image of flames into your home with good old candles. 

With the lights turned low and several pretty candles dotted around your room in the evenings, you won’t be able to help feeling warm and relaxed.
