When you experience freezing winter conditions, it is time to step up the feeling of warmth inside your home. There are different ways to accessorize your living room if you spend most of your time in it. This space is also the place where we entertain our guests or spend time with our family members; hence, creating a warm, cozy environment will help to cheer up everyone’s mood during the long winter days.
Warm accessories you could use
In many ways accessories, we use as Decor elements in our living room can help create a sense of warmth. If you have old but colorful throws or shawls, you could use them on your furniture. Drape them across your sofa or couch or add them to the backs of chairs; not only will they add a colorful touch to such surfaces; it would also help to add a feeling of warmth. Additionally, as most couch or sofa covers are made of synthetic blends, using warm woolen drapes or covers can help reduce the cold touch of such surfaces during winter months.
The other accessories to use in your living room would be piled rugs or wool-based carpets. These add a warm, fuzzy feeling to your feet and help keep out the coldness of the floor surface. Use of warm or piled fabric rugs or wool-based carpets can help keep out the cold and add a sense of warmth, especially beneath your bare feet.
Lighting and heating accessories
There are other ways you can create a sense of warmth in your living space. The use of lights, especially warm, yellow lighting brings on a sense of warmth and coziness. Use wall or floor based lampshades to create isolated corners of lighting that make the entire area look personal and cozy. You can have such lamps in corners or near chairs or sofas where you can sit back with a book and relax. If you have stand-alone radiators, use them in the corners of your room to create a warm environment in the room. There are radiators that mimic the look of fireplaces as well; if you wish to invest in such a heater, it can be placed strategically to create the look of a fireplace. This, in turn, can help recreate the look of old-fashioned living rooms that had fireplaces in them.
