5 top tips to create a warm and cosy bedroom, the following post is sponsored by DUSK.
It’s a place to relax, switch off from the outside world and snuggle down, – that’s why it’s so important to know how to make the most of it and create a warm and cosy bedroom. Below I’ve shared my top 5 tips, tips that I use in my own bedroom and recommend to anyone when it comes to decorating and furnishing a bedroom.
How to create a warm and cosy bedroom
I don’t know about you, but I sleep so much better in fresh sheets! So, to recreate that feeling in-between washes, dilute a cap full of your favourite fabric softener with some water in a spray bottle and spritz your sheets every night before bed. It instantly makes your bedding feel SO much cosier…and a lot harder to get out of on a morning – so beware!
DUSKs Big Clean Survey found that ‘93% of respondents said they sleep best in freshly washed bedding’ – so I know i’m not the only one!
Bring in lots of soft textures, whether that’s through a rug, some decorative cushions or a luxurious throw – it will instantly make the room feel more cosy and inviting. Layer up a few soft furnishings in different textures and colours. It’ll help to create that ‘fancy hotel’ feel even when you’re at home.
Size up on your duvet to make your bed extra cosy. Have a single bed? Get a double duvet! Double > King size… you get the jist! Sizing up means that there’s more duvet to cocoon yourself up in, creating the perfect conditions for those lazy Sunday mornings when you don’t have anywhere to be and can just lay in bed watching Netflix.
Scents can completely change the feel of a room, whether it’s a room fragrant room spray, reed diffuser or candle – you can create a warm and cosy bedroom just by adding a relaxing scent into the space. You want to look for fragrances with Rosemary, Lavender, Jasmine and Vanilla to help you create a soothing and calming environment. You could also think about adding a few drops of essential oils on your pillowcases before bed to help you drift off.
Think about lighting, how many sources of light do you have in your bedroom? Are they all high wattage and stark, or low wattage and softer on the eye? Ideally, you need both, but you also need to be able to isolate them to create a warm and cosy bedroom. Having bedside lamps with a warm white bulb will help to create a serene and peaceful space.
