Whatever season we are in, pretty much any home will benefit from a warm and cosyambience. But as we are in winter, it is especially relevant.
We still have a couple of months before we see any signs of spring, so if you are looking for some inexpensive ways to make your home a cozier place to be, then you are in the right place.
Here are plenty of Simple and affordable ways to make your home cozier in winter.
If you only have window blinds at the moment, then it can feel a little sterile and a bit clinical. Depending on the style of blind, you might also just feel like you are in an office.
So it is a good idea to mix it up with some curtains. It helps to soften the look of the room and frames each of the windows. As they are soft and plush fabrics, it adds instant coziness to any room too.
You could even consider using curtains on a wall to add visual interest as well as texture to the room.
The material, as mentioned, will make the room look much cozier and softer too.
So why not give it a try?
Use more photographs.
As much as we love wall art, what makes a room look cosy and welcoming is when it is filled with lots of family photographs.
This is a simple and inexpensive way to add new touches to a room for sure. You could get a variety of pictures in different sizes printed, then just frame them, hand them, and there you go.
If you are quite artistic, you could even paint a copy of an old family photograph onto a canvas and display it instead – a personal touch that gives a wall (and room) a cosy feel.
Add a fireplace.
If you already have a gas fireplace, then you might not be making the most of it.
If you aren’t, think about ways to make the space look more cosy.
It might be getting some tall pillar candles to frame the fireplace, or creating a cute display on the mantlepiece.
If you have just an empty space where a fireplace used to be, then you could make a feature by getting something like a log burner.
Either way, a fireplace is a cosy feature in the home.
If you have the space, then a large cosy chair is a great addition to the bedroom.
There is just something about sitting on a comfy chair in your bedroom, rather than on your bed. You could include a thick cable knitted throw, and a few scatter cushions too.
It would just be the relatively small cost of those things, and as simple as putting a new chair in the room if one isn’t already there.
Is there anything that you like to do to keep your home looking welcoming and cosy in the winter?
