Is Your Home Cosy Enough?

We love the styling of this room* with it’s cosy touches. There are so many things to consider when you’re trying to make the most of your home.

Everything from the kind of style that you want to create to the ways that you can help your home to really show off your personality is things that you’re going to want to consider when you’re flexing your interior design muscles.

However, there’s one thing that people often forget about when it comes to interior design despite the fact that it can often have the biggest impact on what it’s like to actually live in your home: Is Your Home Comfy Enough?

Being able to feel comfortable and cosy in your home is absolutely essential, but a lot of people aren’t really sure how to go about how to get started.

With that in mind, here are some tips to make your home feel the cosiest ever this Autumn and Winter.

Lighting

Lighting is one of the most powerful interior design tools that the majority of people just seem to ignore a lot of the time. A lack of light can make even the most spacious room feel dingy and cramped, but just the right amount can also make a room feel cosy and warm.

Of course, the kind of light that you bring into a room will always depend on the room.  Rooms like the kitchen are spaces where you want lots of energy for people to spend their time and so should be flooded with natural light. But relaxing spaces like your bedroom might be better off allowing for a more subtle, soothing ambience. 

Heating

Trying to find a comfortable temperature at home can sometimes be frustrating. Whether you’re too hot or too cold, it can make even the nicest space feel miserable and unpleasant. Make sure you can easily adjust the temperature of your home to suit your needs at a moment’s notice. That way, no matter what the weather might be doing outside, you can always make sure that the temperature of your home is exactly how you want it. It’s also a good idea to get your boiler serviced before the onset of Winter to make sure you don’t experience any breakdowns and get left in the cold.

Flow

A lot of people don’t really think about flow in their home and that’s understandable because it’s kind of a little known concept. People will often spend a lot of time considering the ways that each room feels without paying attention to the way that they flow into one another. This can make rooms feel more cramped than they are and lead to your home just not quite feeling right.

The best way to start thinking about this is to think about the ways that people move through your home. Are there things blocking those pathways? If so you might be disrupting the flow of your home and might want to consider rearranging a few things.

A lot of the time the things that you can do to make your home more comfortable can be so simple but they really can make a massive difference to the way that your home feels to spend time in.
