Winter is in full swing, and with it comes colder days and weekend snow trips.
But more than anything else, winter is the time to snuggle down under a warm blanket in soft flannelette pyjamas with a glass of wine and a good book.
But that’s if your room feels comfortable and inviting.
The good news is that creating a warm space can be both easy and inexpensive.

In this blog, we’ll share five tips on cozying up your bedroom and creating a safe and warm space to relax at the end of a long day.
Lighting is crucial when it comes to turning your bedroom into a homey and welcoming space.
For a cozy feel, choose lights with colour temperatures ranging between 2700k and 3999k and avoid using bright overhead lamps. Instead, opt for table or floor lamps and sconces. And if you want to use your overhead lamp, set up a dimmer switch to create a warm atmosphere as you relax in your haven.
You can also add rope lighting and candles for a relaxing spa feel. The flickering flame dancing on your bedroom walls will set the perfect tone to quiet your mind after a long day while adding ambience to your space.
Consider Window Treatments
If you want to make your bedroom snug and comfortable, add some curtains or shades to your windows. After all, there’s nothing more uninviting than bare, cold windows!
Whether you opt for sheer curtains, flat roman shades, or luxury velvet drapes, dressing your windows will add luxury and comfort to your room and instantly elevate your space. But drapes don’t have to be reserved for the windows. To make your bedroom feel cozier, you can also hang neutral drapes behind your bed.
Use Natural Materials
Incorporating natural materials such as wood, rattan, stone, or linen will add warmth and texture to your room. On the other hand, large items made of metal or plastic will give your space a stiff and manufactured feel.
Besides, while oozing coziness, organic materials promote better sleep and enhanced relaxation, which is exactly what you need for your bedroom!
From wicker Papasan chairs and rattan headboards to bamboo bedside tables and wool pillows, the sky's the limit when it comes to adding natural elements to your space. The key is to layer organic textures and raw materials.
Also, placing a few plants in your bedroom is one of the easiest ways to inject some personality and warmth. We’d recommend plants that are easy to care for, such as peace lilies, parlor palms, or snake plants.
Cozy Up Your Bedroom With Pillows And Throws
Talking about pillows, what could be more inviting than a plush bed dressed in luxurious linen and packed with pillows?
The right combination of pillows can instantly upgrade your bedroom and make it feel more inviting. Mix and match textures, colours, and patterns for a cozy feel. For instance, you could add a couple of linen pillows featuring neutral colours, a bold velvet pillow to add depth and interest to your space, and a couple of tassel pillows with complex patterns matching your bedroom hues.
Another way to warm up your space immediately is to layer linen throws and add soft blankets. On a particularly cold winter, you can even add a faux fur, cable-knit, or velvet throw to curl up in while watching your favourite Netflix show on a cold day.
Believe us, adding a few plush pillows and a couple of throws to your bed will make you want to jump straight in after a long day at work or a busy weekend adventuring!
Add Warmth With Area Rugs
There’s nothing more enjoyable on a cold winter morning than feeling the warmth of a soft and plush rug under your feet as you get out of bed. What’s more, besides its practical aspect, a plush area rug will also add texture to your room and turn it into a cosy oasis.
At The Decor House, we’ve sourced a range of high-quality accessories, such as our round fur rug, designed to upgrade your bedroom and give it the cozy feel you’re after.
And the great thing about these types of rugs is that they can be moved around in the bedroom depending on the season. Place it right next to your bed in winter and under your reading chair in the corner of your bedroom in summer.
