As temperatures drop and sunlight hours decrease, one thing becomes clear - winter is on its way. The hazy days of summer are behind us and we can no longer leave the house without extra layers of clothing and a flask of coffee.
During the colder months, there’s nothing like coming home after an arduous day at work or gruelling session at the gym and jumping into bed. This is especially true when you’ve updated your bedroom in time for winter.
If the time has come to update your bedroom with the seasons, consider these five simple yet effective ways to do so.
Update Your Colour Scheme
Winter is the time to celebrate refined shades such as charcoal, navy and white. So, why not update your bedroom with an understated yet sophisticated colour palette? Don’t worry - updating your colour scheme doesn’t necessarily mean picking up a paintbrush or investing in new furniture.
Swapping your bedding or purchasing a couple of scatter cushions in your chosen colours is a great way to give your bedroom a lift in time for winter.
On the dreariest of winter days, you’ll appreciate coming home to a warm, inviting room. Luckily, there are many ways to inject warmth into your bedroom without putting your central heating on for hours on end.
For instance, consider purchasing a thick bedspread to use as a throw during particularly cold nights. Or, add a couple of stylish rugs to your floorboards to make stepping out of bed in the morning that little bit easier.
Opt for Thick Curtains
During the summer, thin cotton curtains are a great addition to any bedroom. But, throughout the winter, you’ll appreciate the heat-trapping qualities of thick curtains.
Swapping your cotton curtains or blinds for a set of velvet drapes is a simple yet effective way to prevent heat from escaping your room. This will ensure that your room stays a pleasant temperature all night long.
Invest in Ambient Lighting
Even during the bitter cold of winter, ambient lighting can instantly make a bedroom feel cosier. Ample lighting also ensures you can still read or complete the crossword in bed even after the sun has gone down.
To create an inviting atmosphere in your bedroom, consider purchasing a bedside table lamp with yellow bulbs. Or, arrange a selection of floor lamps around your bed.
Fit Your Winter Duvet with Soft Cotton Covers
This is certainly the time of year to swap your thin blanket for a winter duvet, and it can also be tempting to fit your duvet with extra-thick bed sheets. However, it’s still important to choose cotton sheets and pillowcases that allow your skin to breathe throughout the night.
Overheating in the night will disturb your sleep and leave you feeling unsettled. With this in mind, we recommend choosing sateen sheets that help you remain the perfect sleep temperature. Opt for bedding in a bold pattern or sophisticated colour to complete the look and enjoy the cosiest winter yet.
