There's nothing like coming home to a cosy atmosphere during the colder months of the year. The best part is, you don't need to spend loads of cash to achieve a snug abode, here's our 5 favourite ways you can make your home more cosy.

Warm & Ambient Lighting

Warm lighting is a great way to make your home feel more cosy as the temperature drops. Soft, diffused lighting is the best kind for a cosy home, as it’s not too bright and overwhelming. Globe lamps, pendant lights, or even himilayan salt lamps are a great choice.

Soft Fabrics & Furnishings

Cushions, blankets, and thick, soft rugs are crucial in a cosy home. Shaggy rugs are a personal favourite of ours, as they’re super soft underfoot. Adding real wool into your home is also a great way of keeping snug. For ultimate warmth, be sure to add a premium thermal blind into your home, as these blinds will keep your home warm while saving you money at the same time.

Use Real Wood

Embracing a scandinavian theme and adding real wood into your home will elevate your style as well as your level of cosy (if that’s a thing). Real wood can be added into your home in many forms. You could add a real wood coffee table as a centerpiece to your living room, or a real wooden venetian blind, which will bring more ‘hygge’ to your home, while also giving you improved privacy.

Choose A Warm Paint Colour

The colour of your walls sets the tone for your home. Choosing a warm paint colour will inevitably make your home feel more warm and cosy. Beige, creme, or eggshell are great examples, but if you image search “warm colour palette” you can find an array of warm colours depending on the interior theme you are going for.

Add Some Candles

Here’s an easy way to cosy up your home during the colder months, lighting candles not only ties into the soft lighting tip from earlier, but if you go for scented candles, there’s nothing quite like walking into a room and the sweet smell of cinnamon, orange etc. gracing your nose. Cosy smells and soft lighting, what’s not to like.
