Your bedroom should be the most comfortable place in your home, it should be the place where you feel most relaxed and at ease. Besides having somewhere comfortable to sleep, what is it that makes a bedroom cozy and comfortable?

To create a bedroom that is as comfortable and cozy as humanly possible, follow these handy tips:

Choose your paint color carefully

When it comes to making your bedroom comfortable and cozy, one of the most important things is the paint color. While some colors add warmth and coziness to spaces, others can make them appear colder.

While pastel blue is a popular color at the moment, it is quite a cold color and can make your room feel colder than it is. Instead, it’s best to opt for colors like rusty pinks or burnt oranges. If you want your bedroom to be neutral, don’t go for white as this can be too harsh. To make your bedroom look as warm as possible, opt for off-white or better yet, cream.

Be picky about lighting

Bright, overhead lighting is a big no-no when it comes to creating a cozy vibe, as it is too sterile. Instead of having overly bright lighting, you want lighting that gives the room a warm glow.

When the sun sets, the best type of lighting to have is dimmed overhead lighting – you will need a dimmer switch for this. If you are unable to install a dimmer light, the next best option is table lamp lighting, as this can create a subtle glow.

Make your bed plush

You might not think that the bedding that you choose will make a difference to the coziness of your bedroom, but it does. Having plush bedding, can make all the difference to the look and feel of your room.

There is nothing better than having a big fluffy feather duvet and plush pillows to sink into after a long day. Plus, having your bed dressed in gorgeous, cozy bedding, adds to the overall comfort and coziness of the space.

Flooring is crucial

If you have carpet in your bedroom, ensure that it is as thick and fluffy as possible. The thicker and fluffier your carpet is, the more cozy and comfortable your bedroom will be. If you fancy replacing your carpet, have a look online to see all the best carpet designs for a cozy bedroom.

If your bedroom has wooden or tile floors, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make them cozy. Yes, wood and tiles are known for being cold during the winter months, but by adding a rug you can change that. Invest in a cute, comfortable rug – faux fur is ideal, and place it in your bedroom to add to the coziness factor.

Believe it or not, creating a cozy and comfortable bedroom doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, if you know what you are doing, it is fairly easy to do.
