If there’s ever a good time for a hot cuppa, layers upon layers and cosying up, its winter, and where better to get comfortable and warm up than the bedroom. With the addition of a just few elements, you can create the homely inviting bedroom of your dreams, perfect for those long winter nights. Get under the covers and make the most of the colder months with our bedroom design tips below!
Unsurprisingly, the bed is the most important feature of this space, and comfort really starts and ends here.
CONSIDER A TOPPER
The easiest way to get that new mattress feel without the expense is with a thick, fluffy topper. For nothing but the best seek something with memory foam, a material which moulds to the contours of your body, providing optimum support and cloud-like comfort.
Nothing combats that winter chill quite like a set of flannel sheets, but if you’re after a transeasonal look, linen adds texture and isn’t too heavy for the warmer months. Just because its winter doesn’t mean your sheets need to be dark and dreary! Opt for lighter colours to add warmth to the room and create the illusion of space.
ADD A THROW
A throw can be the small touch that completes your bedroom design. Seek a colour that contrasts with your sheets and a thicker knit for a look that’s equal parts style and comfort.
BESIDE THE BED
Softness and warmth are key, especially in winter, and it’s the small features that really pull your look together. A cosy bedroom doesn’t end with the bed!
RUGS ADD WARMTH
There’s nothing worse than a cold floor on an icy winter morning. So, why not add a rug? Faux fur and shaggy styles are extra soft and pack heaps of aesthetic appeal. If your space is looking a little bare or just lacking that finishing touch, consider something with a minimal pattern to add texture and create that cosy feel.
UPGRADE YOUR LIGHTING
When it comes to the bedroom, soft lighting trumps the harsh glare of fluorescents every single time. For the ultimate ambience, cancel out any bright white lighting by swapping to bulbs with a warmer glow. There’s no worse feeling than getting out of a warm bed to tiptoe across a cold room to switch out the lights, so remember to maintain your cosy comfort with handy bedside lamps!
ABOVE THE BED
A simple stylish frame or an artsy wall print can add that much-needed pop of colour and cheer to your winter bedroom design.
HEADBOARDS ARE IN
A unique headboard is easy to achieve, whether it be with the aid of a plush throw or a fabric DIY job. If your frame is metal offset the chill and cover it! Nothing traps the cold quite like a metal headboard.
YOUR WALLS DON’T NEED TO BE BARE
The right print can make your bedroom the perfect snug, intimate space for those long winter nights ahead. Opt for something in warmer, neutral tones that won’t clash with your sheets, or add an accent wall in a darker colour to create the ultimate cosy bedroom design.
