Lounging in a Winter Wonderland: How to Make Your Home Cozy
Winter is right around the corner and, chances are, you are already switching out your throw pillows and bringing out the flannel sheets to give your space a more intimate vibe. Whether you love to settle down on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate or you simply want to make your home a warmer, cozier place, here are a few tips and tricks you can use to amplify the coziness in your home this winter.
Add on layers and textures
Just like how you bundle up for the winter, your home needs to bundle up, too. Adding layers to your space not only gives your home more depth, but it also adds texture. Texture is key when it comes to coziness. Make sure that when you are layering your area rugs and throw blankets that you are not just adding any old material. Look for fabrics that make you want to touch or snuggle up with them like fur, velvet, and leather.
If you have been wondering why indoor plants have really been taking off when it comes to interior design trends, it is because adding elements of nature to your space creates a calming and tranquil atmosphere. If you do not have a green thumb, consider adding fake plants or wood elements to your space. As we already mentioned, fabrics like fur and leather can also bring in those natural elements to make your space feel cozier.
Set up a gas fireplace for entertaining
>Nothing says come on in and cozy up quite like a fireplace. In fact, over one-third of all houses in the United States have at least one fireplace. However, while wood fireplaces can seem magical, they can also be messy and inconsistent with their heat. The good news is that you can get all the magic with none of the mess with a gas fireplace.
As your gas fireplace company will tell you, the heat from a gas fireplace is consistent. Plus you do not have to worry about cleaning up ash or wood pieces because gas log sets do not actually burn. Gas logs for indoor fireplaces are only for the aesthetic appeal, which means you can relax with friends and family without worrying about when to set a new log on the fire.
