Home Decor Ideas During Winters

So you thought winter is here finally (and I mean in a non-Game of Thrones manner) and you can now show off your winter clothes. This was fun until the temperature drops to as low as 11 degrees in Kolkata and you struggle to get out of your bed even to answer nature’s call. The fog outside blinds your vision. The chilling breeze freezes your nose tip. And as if that was not enough, even the blankets turn cold and fail to keep you warm. All your efforts to make your room warm goes in vain because you don’t want to step out of your bed to turn the heater on or even grab the remote to press the buttons.

Here we are with some amazing tips and home decor ideas to keep the room warmer and give it a cozy look during winters:

Start knitting again.

Not only does it add comfort but also gives you a relaxed feeling. You can make knitted pillow covers, cushion covers, rugs, coffee mug covers and a lot of other stuff to add warmth and coziness. You can make your own knitted or crotcheted rugs or blankets for a soft feel and warm home decor ideas.

Take a look at the lights.

While putting up overhead lighting, make sure the light spreads to all corners of the room and reveals the carpets and blankets under it. A yellow light brightens up the room and warms it up too. Try using table or bedside lamps with orange or yellow shades of light to relax while you finish your favorite book and a cup of coffee.

Make some space for leather…

A touch of leather can transform the mood of the entire room. An armchair in a corner or a cozy couch beside the fireplace or a leather table runner can bring the charm. Book covers made of leather can be used to give your study a tepid feel and is one of the wonderful home decor ideas.

Keep the tone down a bit!

Indulge in warm shades of the color palette instead of the usual black and grey tones. Blankets and comforters in burgundies, mahoganies, browns, chocolates induce a feeling of warmth. Blankets with a soft texture, furry feeling, and cool tones help you keep warmer and comfier in winters.

Into the woods?

While looking for a luxury apartment, also look for wooden floors. Team it up with lighter shades of furniture to enhance the organic look. To lift the warming effect you can also use cherry-chocolate or mocha laminate lamps or pillow covers of the same shade.

What color do you want to choose?

Those who are thinking of painting their walls yellow or orange or brick red, please rethink. There are colors and there are hues of each color. Warm colors are told to increase adrenaline release & higher the breathing rate. It raises body temperature and keeps you warm. Pair-painting warm hues with few splashes of bright colors can keep the room feel warm & give it a chic look at the same time.

Getting cold feet?

Rugs and carpets are the best methods to keep your apartment warm. Keeping room physically warm is as necessary as setting it up for a warmer look and feel with accessories and paint. Use high pile rugs to perceive the heat and keep your feet warm. If you want to use low pile rugs, it is a good idea to mix and match them and creating layers. So bring down your heating costs and use lighter shades of rugs to enhance that wooden floor.
