3 simple ways of making your bedroom feel luxurious and cosy in time for winter
The changing weather from summer to autumn has inevitably strengthened our desire to feel warm and comfortable within our homes, especially during the increasingly colder nights.
During these colder months, it is essential to make some adjustments to your home in order to make it more adaptable and cosier for you, whilst still maintaining a sense of luxury that will add to your relaxation.
The bedroom — where you will typically spend the majority of time in thanks to the longer and colder nights — should become a warm haven for you to comfortably use throughout the following months, and you’ll be surprised to know that you only really need to make a few changes to get the result you want.
You may be wondering how you can easily transform your bedroom into a more comforting and luxurious space where you can relax and forget about the wet and windy weather outdoors — it won’t be as tedious as you think — but don’t worry as we have listed everything you need to know for a cosier and luxurious winter bedroom.
On your bed
The essential element to every bedroom is the bed itself. Without a comforting mattress, the colder nights will be unpleasant and you will feel restless, therefore more tired throughout the day.
In preparation ahead of the winter weather, we recommend that you invest in a brand new natural latex mattress that focuses on your relaxation and comfort above all else.
When trying to shop for a new mattress, you will be confronted with an array of options that may make the task seem rather daunting. However, if you are struggling, we recommend choosing a latex mattress, which is naturally made from rubber tree sap and creates a supportive, comfortable and durable experience.
Once you’ve found the perfect mattress, then you can focus on plush, textured and layered duvets to keep you warm throughout the night — perhaps an electric blanket or an exquisite comforter for extra cosiness.
Nothing says ‘winter is here’ than a beautiful throw. Putting one on your bed, whether it is a cable-knit or faux fur, will add a sense of luxury as well as texture and warmth.
Beside your bed
When attempting to create the perfect luxury bedroom for winter, you don’t have to solely focus on the perimeter of your mattress.
As the nights will be longer and colder, you will perhaps want to exchange any bright-white lighting and instead incorporate warmer bulbs to enhance the atmosphere of your bedroom.
If you haven’t got one already, then we suggest that you place a lamp on your bedside table so that it is easy for you to have a source of light if you need to get up at some point during the night — remember that there is nothing worse than having to get up to turn the lights off once you are cosied up in bed.
Underneath your bed
Is there anything worse than getting up from the bed and placing your feet on cold flooring? We think not. If you have underfloor heating then you are one step ahead, yet we would still suggest investing in a rug to keep your feet warm.
Our feet tend to play a vital role in regulating our body temperature as they have approximately 72,000 nerve endings, therefore keeping your feet warm will ultimately improve your circulation, and will also give you a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
As suggested, adding a soft, plush rug to either side of your bed or one that entirely surrounds your bed, will be extremely welcoming in the morning. For a more luxurious look, consider the potential textures you could add — faux fur is inviting whilst layering rugs can add a trendy and soft feel to your room.
Regardless of how you choose to follow these simple tips, your bedroom will be quickly transformed into a luxury haven where you can protect yourself from the harsh winter weather throughout the night and relax cosily during the day.
