As the temperatures drop, our need for cozy vibes increases. With cold weather outside, making our home comfortable and warm should be a top priority. Where we sleep is one area where coziness should reign supreme. Here are a few tips to help ensure your bedroom is winter-ready and as cozy as can be:
Upgrade your bed
How comfortable is your bed? Does it scream cozy, or do you find yourself not feeling all that great when it’s time to sleep? How old is your mattress? Over time, what was once a highly comfortable bed to sleep on may now be one that is causing you issues.
To get winter-ready, consider investing in a memory foam mattress that will help make your nightly sleep that much better. Designed to provide optimal comfort, a bed like this one can make a world of difference in how comfortable your bedroom is for the winter.
Get big and fluffy bedding
Just imagine yourself sinking into your comfy bed, covered up with the coziest of bedding. While your summer bedding may have been light and airy to keep you cool, you want to rethink your bedding in the winter. From big, fluffy comforters to throw blankets to add extra warmth and sheets designed to keep you warm, your bedding is a big part of how cozy and comfortable your bed and bedroom will be.
Add a rug
You may have carpet in your bedroom, but that doesn’t matter. Adding a rug or two to your bedroom is the epitome of comfort during the winter. Grab a book and throw down a throw pillow and read on your comfortable rug or simply enjoy the process of putting your bare feet down on the rug on a cold winter morning. Comfort—there’s nothing like feeling warm and cozy in the winter.
Incorporate rich, warm colors
Summer may have called for light and airy colors, but you may want to change up your color theme in the bedroom during winter. Rich, dark colors make it a lot cozier and inviting when the weather is cold. There’s just something about the way it adds warmth to your room.
Whether it’s dark wallpaper installed behind your bed or simply throw pillows and blankets added to your bed, using rich colors to make you feel warmer and cozier is the way to go this winter.
Pro tip: Add dim lighting in your bedroom during the winter to create a holiday-inspired vibe.
Incorporate a book-reading area
Whether you add a Papasan chair to your bedroom or make a cozy reading corner with pillows on the floor, a reading area in your bedroom can scream comfort. This is especially true if you can set it up near a window, where you get plenty of natural light.
With views of the cold or snowy day outside but all the warmth inside, nothing will ever feel as great as reading a good book with a throw pillow and a warm cup of tea, delectable coffee, or hot chocolate. A comfy reading nook in a home is the perfect place to hang out with your friends for a girls’ night in.
Upgrading your room for the winter to make it cozier and more inviting is the best way to truly enjoy the cold season. After all, when you’ve had a long day in the cold, there’s nothing quite like getting back to your impressive home and getting warm in the comfort of your room.
Big blankets, soft throw pillows, and good books—all of these things make for a calming and welcoming vibe. You deserve to feel good in your bedroom, and these tips will help you do just that.
