There’s nothing like laying in bed on Christmas Eve feeling like you’re in a cosy little bubble. Warm, snug and completely content. Throw in some hot chocolate with marshmallows on the top and you’re winning at life. It’s a priceless feeling. If your bedroom is lacking the cosy element and you want to get it cosy in time for Christmas, here are a few suggestions to help you on your way.
The bed is the focal point of any bedroom. It’s the heart of the room. The place where you’ll be chilling out, hopefully watching the snow settles outside the window. (We can dream of a white Christmas surely!). But if your bed is old, uncomfortable or just isn’t working for you, it might be time to invest in a new one. Something like a divan bed with memory foam mattress is the perfect cosy choice. Memory foam can trap in body heat, which is great for those that feel the cold more. So treat yourself, it is Christmas after all!
If one thing is going to ruin your cosy bedroom retreat it’s going to be mess. Try and unclutter now before your festive break starts. It’s better to get it done and dusted so you can start the relaxation as soon as possible. There’s nothing worse than laying in bed and instead of taking a big sigh because you’re super comfortable, you’re taking a big sigh because all you can see is mess. It’s such a stressful feeling and the longer you put it off the worse it well get. So dig your heels in and get that tidying done.
Layering up in winter isn’t just about your jumpers. It’s the same for your blankets. Get yourself some super soft blankets that feel lovely against the skin. There’s something about super soft fabric that really helps you to relax. Mix up the textures and keep a throw or two over your bed. You won’t regret it when you’re chilling out with a good book and a cup of tea snuggled up against a super soft throw. Doesn’t it sound like heaven?
Getting the lighting right in the bedroom isn’t’ difficult. You just have to get yourself a good lamp that suits your décor. Any room needs a little ambience to make it feel cosy. If you want to really add a touch of festivity to your bedroom this Christmas, swap your lamp for some fairy lights. They’ll twinkle the day and night away while you cosy up and leave the cold and rain outside.
