Whether you are someone who works from home or you only get to enjoy your lounge during evenings and weekends, it must be the most comfortable place in the world to you. It should be somewhere you yearn to come back to after a tough day and the place you make memories with friends and family. If your lounge is not somewhere you like to relax, or you are struggling to make it feel like home, it is time to take action. From home improvements to small décor changes, here are 6 simple ways you can make your lounge more comfortable.
Invest in a soft and supportive sofa
Creaking springs and coarse fabric on an old sofa make it very difficult to relax at the end of the day. If you are sitting on an old sofa that does not offer either support or comfort, it may be time to upgrade. Of course, you do not need to buy new as there are lots of second-hand marketplaces on the internet with high-quality furniture for sale.
Comfort from the ground up
While hard flooring is practical and trendy, it can be difficult to get cozy in a room with a cold and hard floor under your feet. Carpeting, rugs, and runners will not only feel squishy but can also prevent heat from being lost from the room through gaps in wooden floorboards. A Flooring Boutique has a wide range of top-quality carpets in designs to suit every style of décor. Some people go as far as installing underfloor heating, but that is not always possible and can be costly.
Try to create an atmosphere of ‘hygge’
The Danish concept of hygge has become incredibly popular all over the world. In basic terms, hygge is the cozy feeling of feeling comfortable and safe when relaxing with friends and family. It is often linked to candlelight and open fires, but with some luxurious cushions, chunky knitted throws, and faux fur rugs, you can achieve that wonderful winter feeling of coziness.
Create a ‘snug’ space
Open-plan living spaces are accessible, but while the airy and cool arrangement is ideal in spring and summer, in the winter, it is worth having a reshuffle to create a cozy snug by rearranging comfortable chairs so that they are close together, centered around a small table, a fireplace, or another focal point such as a piece of art or a lamp.
Introduce some smart tech and automation
Coming home to a cold and dark home and waiting for everything to warm up is not ideal, and thanks to smart technology, we do not have to live like that anymore. With a smart heating thermostat and lighting system, you can get your lights and heating on before you leave work or on your train ride home. This technology can also help you to monitor and reduce your energy usage so you can reduce your bills.
Use warm, inviting colors
The color scheme you embrace can have a significant impact on how you feel when you are in a room, but that does not mean that you need to use reds and oranges to feel the warmth. Click here for some ideas for a cozy living room color scheme.
