Ways To Make Your Bedroom More Cozy

Bedrooms are a place for ultimate rest. Here are some ways to make yours more cozy and restful:

  • Create Ambiance with Lighting: "A cozy bedroom needs light, but not just any kind of light. Turn off the overhead fixture after dark and concentrate on low light. The key to an intimate mood is incorporating various sources of lighting, including soft bedside lamps and strategically mounted ceiling lights for a touch of drama." (Architectural Digest)
  • Use Dark & Warm Colours: "While light colors are great for making a room feel larger, a darker hue envelops the bedroom, creating the perfect space to relax and slumber." (HGTV)
  • Choose Calming Art: "Art selections are intensely personal and taste-driven, but Julie Daniel, from Los Angeles-based L'Abri Interiors, recommends avoiding high-energy colors such as reds, oranges, and deep yellows. Instead, choose pieces with blue, green, or gray tones that will help create a serene vibe in your bedroom, she says." (Prevention)
  • Embrace Scent: "The correct scent can also create a homey atmosphere in any bedroom. If you're worried about the hazards of a real flame, alternatives like scented room diffusers or battery-operated candles also work. You can even try essential oil diffusers or plug-in scents that double as nightlights." (Martha Stewart)
  • Shut Out Tech: "You can’t truly unplug if you’re attached to your phone or iPad. Try to make your bedroom a low- or no-tech zone, adding books and natural elements such as fresh flowers or plants instead of a television or a phone dock. Make this a space to truly relax. Trust us, the news will still be there when you wake up." (Architectural Digest)
  • Add Ceiling Beams: "Adding wooden ceiling beams may be a bigger project than tossing a few throw pillows on the bed, but it is one that will definitely pay off in the cozy department. Wooden accents add warmth to a space, and wooden ceiling beams are a smart architectural way to add the look without taking up space." (HGTV)
  • Decorate Seasonally: "Who says you have to keep holiday and seasonal decorations confined to just a few months? You don't want to go overboard, but a Christmas wreath or bouquets of fresh garden flowers in the summertime adds warmth and a quietly festive feeling to a bedroom." (Prevention)
  • Add Rugs: "Whether you have vinyl, tile, hardwood, or carpeted flooring, you can layer a rug over it. These floor coverings ground your space and add texture, color, warmth, and comfort underfoot." (Martha Stewart)
