The Living room is one of the most popular rooms during wintertime. When it is chilly outside, everyone moves indoors and they find comfort on cosy couches where they can enjoy each other’s company or snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate and a movie.
If you are spending a lot more time in this room, you will quickly be tempted to make a couple of improvements. The right home improvements can make this space even more inviting and can give your living room a much warmer look and feel. Here’s a quick look at some of the best style tips to warm up your Livingroom this winter.
Add a Large Retractable Screen
Australia is mostly hot and sunny. But winters can also be chilly. Most household furniture arrangements are placed to accommodate warmer weather and many household designs don’t leave a lot of room for moving furniture around. A great way to warm up your space is by adding a large decorative screen. This screen can be positioned strategically to block off a chilly draft, enhance privacy for guests that might be sleeping over, and can be decorative.
Add a Fireplace
A fireplace sure is helpful when it comes to warming up your home. In these modern times, there are many ways to get your own fireplace in the Livingroom. You can buy a die-cast terrace fireplace that is very easy to pop up in any corner of the room or get a small metal fireplace installed complete with a ventilation chimney. You can also opt for a more budget-friendly solution and get an electric fireplace or gas fireplace that looks just like the real deal complete with real or simulated flames. Now just make a u-shape around your fireplace with the furniture and you are all set for winter.
Install More Lighting
The right type of lighting can make you feel a lot warmer and safer. Most buildings are fitted with cold LED lights these days which can feel chilly in winter. Upgrade your lighting to lights and bulbs that allow you to alter the light hue and set it on a more orange and warm hue during winter. It can also help if you add additional lights like standing lamp posts or reading lights.
Redecorate With Warmer Hues
Colour can have a huge impact on how we feel. If you want to feel more relaxed and warm then you should consider desert colours like earthy brown, burnt orange, earthy shades, bronze or copper hues. These colours are not too overpowering but will make your spaces feel a lot cosier and warmer.
Layer with Rugs Or Carpets
The best way to warm up your Livingroom is by adding some rugs or carpets. A good rug or carpet will enhance the style of your Livingroom and will warm up your sitting area since rugs help insulate the room. Rugs are a great solution for living rooms with tile floors, concrete floors, or hardwood floors.
Add Thicker Curtains
Most of the warmth in your home will escape through the windows. In wintertime, you should hang thicker curtains that offer more insulation. This way the cold from outside will be blocked out while the warmth you create indoors will stay trapped.
Soften Things Up
In winter, you want to add plenty of soft layering in the form of rugs, cushions, and loose blankets. This cushioning and softness can brighten up a dull living room and will make your space feel a lot more inviting.
