Comfy Homes: Designs Tips for a Cozy Bedroom

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Autumn is upon us, which means winter is only that much closer. And if there is anything we crave when the weather starts to get a little colder, it’s comfort. So why not infuse a little of that into your personal space with these design tips for a cozy bedroom?

Play With Space Perception

When decorating a space, many of us look for ways to make rooms appear bigger and grander. But when it comes to designing a cozy bedroom space, closeness is more desirable.

While we can’t change the size of the room, we can use some fundamental interior design principles to make a room seem more intimate. For example:

  • Use larger furniture pieces
  • Keep furniture pieces closer together
  • Paint the walls dark colors with warm undertones
  • Add patterned rugs
  • Highlight key focal points

Dim the Lights

Although abundant natural lighting can make a space feel more comfortable, glaringly bright fluorescents and other synthetic lights can leave us feeling ill at ease. This is especially true when you’re trying to go to sleep at night. Here are a few ways to make lighting a little cozier in your bedroom:

  • Swap to dimmer lightbulbs
  • Add covered lamps to the space
  • Use twinkle lights
  • Install dimmer switches

That isn’t to say that you have to keep your lights dim all the time. Simply having multiple light sources, some gentler than others, will allow you to customize your light level depending on your mood.

Utilize Texture

When we think of comfort, the first sensations that often come to mind are tactile: a soft sweater, a warm cup of cocoa, a gentle hug. Fortunately, we can play with textures in our room design as well. Some textiles that add to a cozy aesthetic include:

  • Flannel
  • Fur
  • Wool
  • Knit
  • Velvet
  • Wood

You can incorporate these elements in your bedspread, throw blankets, pillows, wall hangings, and window trim.

Autumn is here, and what better way to bring in the season than to add a little coziness to your bedroom? That way, you’ll be able to stay warm and comfy the whole cold season.
