4 Easy Ways To Create The Ultimate Cosy Bedroom

Tuesday, January 09, 2018


Have you ever ventured up to bed and almost dreaded the moment you have to get under the covers and try to get to sleep because it’s just so cold? Although it can be easy to warm up the rest of the house, your bedroom can become too hot if you leave the heating on all day, or it can become too cold if you leave the window open to let in some fresh air. Now that the chillier months are upon us, you want your bedroom to be a haven of cosiness. Take a look at how you can ensure that you sleep in ultimate comfort this winter.

The Bed Itself. It pays to invest in the most luxurious bed that your budget will allow. You could opt for a swanky polished white metal or bleached wood effect king size frame, and then select a super comfy mattress. On the other hand, you may wish to forego the bed frame and choose the divan style bed. There are many options, such as Vi-spring beds, that incorporate the sturdiest of divan frames with the plushest mattresses made out of the finest materials. Ensure that you select a firmness that is ideal for you. Too soft and you could end up getting up each morning with a sore back.

A Rug. If you have wooden floorboards in your bedroom, your boudoir will exude a classic period feature. However, this also means you may not be able to walk around barefoot as you risk mild frostbite. Adorn your room with opulent rugs that fit in with your colour scheme. By doing this, you are breaking up the expanse of space on the floor, adding a touch of extra detail to your room and ensuring that you feel something warm, soft and cosy underfoot.

Sheets. You don’t have to make do with basic cotton or polyester sheets for your mattress. The snugness of flannel and knitted sheets mean they insulate effectively. The fibres are tightly knit, and they have a more tactile feel upon your skin. As you get into bed, you’ll feel like you’re entering a luxury hotel suite bed rather than venturing onto some chilly sheets. Accompany your new luxury sheets with a warming furry hot water bottle, and you will have created the ultimate little den to escape the cooler climate.

Robe. Although a thin silk robe is delightful in the summer, during the winter months, you want something softer and thicker to keep you warm as you hot foot it out of your bed first thing in the morning. Towel and soft touch robes are ideal. It’s a wise idea to get a size bigger than what you actually need so you can wrap yourself up within your warming cocoon before you turn on the heating, grab a cup of coffee and creep back into bed.

Our bedrooms should be our sanctuary and our escape from the stresses and pressures of life. We want to be able to leave all our baggage at the bedroom door and retreat into a calming and relaxing environment. Follow these steps, and you could have the most luxurious, comfy and cosy bedroom this winter.
