Take a minute to walk around your home. Are there any areas that have potential to become “cozy” spaces? Even with an open floor plan or high ceilings, there are nooks and corners that can be designed to make your house feel more like a home. Let’s explore which elements can be added to elevate the look and overall vibe of your forever home.
To create cozy spaces in a open concept home, you may need to look up. The ceilings are key in this transformation. Darkening the paint color, adding wallpaper or exposing the natural wood beams will have a huge impact on the overall warmth of your home.
Window Treatments: Darkness can bring relaxation and comfort, just what you need after a long work week. But come Saturday, it’s time to wake up and seize the day. Open the blinds and allow the invigorating sunshine inside. Layering is a great way to experience both moods, on one window, you have the best of both worlds.
You can create cozy places even with high ceilings and large, open space. By separating the room into designated areas you can give off a close knit vibe. Simply group a small table with comfortable seating to create an intimate dining space. Complete the look with window shades drawn for privacy and the perfect lighting. This incredible chandelier brings the dining area together and creates the perfect vibe.
Window Treatments: Forget the view–sometimes, you want to focus on the moment. Having access to cozy spaces when you want them is the ultimate goal. The ability to change the atmosphere in an instant with automated window shades is important.
All you need is a cozy space to have your coffee to enhance your home life. Breakfast nooks and window seats can be redesigned as purposeful spaces for studying, meditating or star gazing. Add pillows, plush blankets and comfy cushions to any seat and enjoy some quiet moments. Find ways to create the cozy spaces you need to elevate the feeling throughout your entire home.
Window Treatments: Even small spaces can be affected by harsh glare and direct rays. Light control is important in limited space settings, too. Choose the right window coverings that invite a glowing light to blanket you in sunshine in your cozy spot.
Ingredients for Cozy Spaces
You’ll need a recipe for success to create cozy spaces in your home. Materials and fabrics, along with purposefully placed furnishings, area rugs and other design elements will help invite comfort. Levels of lighting are also important in completing the atmosphere. Use soft lighting, table lamps, sconces or lanterns that adjust to create the perfect setting.
