Cosy home top tips
Getting your lighting right is a must. Avoid harsh overhead lights; if you have spotlights, make sure you add a dimmer switch to make sure your space is not too bright in the evenings. Add small table lamps with warm, yellow-hued bulbs, and switch them on as soon as it starts to get dark. Fairy lights aren’t just for Christmas- they work all year round and give a lovely soft glow. Hang them from picture frames or place them around your mantlepiece.
Add lots of soft furnishings
A plush sofa covered in cushions is always going to make your room feel cosy, but there are extra touches you can add too. Always keep a couple of big, fluffy throws around, on each chair or sofa, so that you can curl up and keep warm with a comforting blanket over you. You can also invest in some good-quality, thick and heavy curtains that will keep draughts out and add a touch of luxury.
Make your home smells amazing with scented candles and wax melts. Another great option is a diffuser with your own blend of soothing essential oils like lavender and bergamot.
