Secrets to Creating Cozy Spaces at Home

Designing a warm, welcoming home is all about sprinkling magic that effortlessly creates cozy spaces. Whether your home has a sprawling open floor plan or a collection of individual rooms, adjusting the atmosphere will give you the perfect vibe you’ve been searching for. Join us on a journey through some fantastic home design concepts to help you cozy up in style!

Dark Ceilings 

A home that has an open floor plan or a home with high ceilings may seem like a challenge. You may be wondering, “How can I make this space have a more intimate feel?” We recommend darkening the ceiling! By incorporating beams, wood accents, wallpaper, or even paint, the atmosphere of your space will instantly transform. Before you know it, you will have created the cozy, warm vibes you’ve been searching for.

Window Treatments: While we adore the look of dark ceilings, there are times when we want the sun to vibrantly shine through. If you want a comfortable feeling at night but the sun during the day, consider dual shades. They are a great way to have the best of both worlds! 

Private Moments 

An open atmosphere can be a bit overwhelming as you’re turning your house into a home. The key is to create designated spaces! This is easier than you would think. Add in a small table with some comfortable seating, a lovely chandelier, and window shades that can provide privacy from the outside world. You will achieve this look effortlessly.

Window Treatments: One of the reasons why we purchase a new house is the views that come with it! However, you may find yourself wanting to close it off sometimes. This gives you the feel of a cozy space when you want it. For instance, take this dining area. With the help of automated window shades, the atmosphere of this space has changed almost instantly. 

Designated Areas 

We all dream of the perfect spot to sip on our morning coffee, read a good book, or indulge in a cup of tea in the afternoon. Picture it. You have upgraded a window seat in your home by adding plush blankets, pillows, and cushions. Now, you can spend some quiet time throughout the day in a cozy space. Just put your feet up, lean back, and relax.

Window treatments: A small space is wonderful until you try to relax without the best light control. As the sun is coming through the windows, you may fall right asleep. Think about choosing window coverings that divert the harsh glare or direct rays and invite a soft, glowing light. 

Cozy Space Design Elements 

When creating cozy spaces, it is often a blend of materials, textures, and fabrics that do the trick. If you want to warm up the look of a room, add in a nice area rug. To invite comfort into the space, purchase some pillows, blankets, and seating. If you are looking to factor in lighting, varying levels contour the space. Think about adding in soft lighting like lanterns, table lamps, or sconces. You won’t regret these design elements becoming a part of your home!

Window treatments: As you’re looking for texture to add to your space, think about woven materials. Not only are they beautiful but they add texture and filtered light into any room. 

Adjusting the Lighting 

Fun fact: Ambient lighting changes in temperature over the course of the day. In the morning, the light can start off cool. By the evening, the light warms up. It is similar to the late afternoon sun. Thus, the cozy spaces in your home become even cozier. Did you know that you can harness natural lighting in your home even with your shades closed? Adding Aura Illuminated Shades paired with LED strip lighting will create the perfect mood and atmosphere at the window. This means the lighting in the space can change from warm to cool or vice versa whenever you want.
