As the winter descends, it’s more important than ever to have a cosy and comfortable living room where you can relax away from the harshness of the cold outdoors. In order for your living room to be an enjoyable room to relax in, it needs to be decorated luxuriously so you’ll never want to leave your sofa! If your living room décor is looking a little tired and dilapidated, you’ll need to partake in some tactical accessorising to revitalise its beauty.
A Warming Accessory
Radiators are an absolute necessity for warmth and comfort within the home. Designer radiators allow you to have a functional item which provides warmth whilst improving the appearance of your living room. Quirky designs which catch the eye can really create an impact – they can serve as an ornamental feature as well as source of heat. If your home has more of a traditional feel, you can choose on of the more traditional radiators with a modern edge, rather than having the unattractive, conventional white radiator hindering the appearance of your living room.
Comfort Under Foot
Rugs are the ultimate accessory for comfort and homeliness. They should invite your feet to rest on them with their plush texture and welcoming appearance. They’re more effective on wooden floors as the change in texture is more noticeable. The beauty of rugs is that they’re available in so many different designs and colours that you can always find the perfect one for your living room. Shop around for the perfect rug, don’t be too hasty, and always return it if it just doesn’t feel quite right for your home. They can often look ideal in the shop, but sizing, colour and lighting can affect just how it looks in your living room. Once you’ve found the perfect rug, you can sit back and watch your beloved pet sprawl in front of the fire on it.
A Burning Centerpiece
Fireplaces are essential for living rooms, from contemporary designs to traditional wood burning fires; they’re the ultimate centrepiece for any comfortable home. Fireplaces can be great to display accessories on, too. Place tea lights around the bottom of the fireplace when entertaining to create a romantic and calming atmosphere. Flowers can add a feminine touch to your centerpiece, but make sure they’re not placed too close to the open flame as they could pose a hazard! Also, if you have young children or pets, a fireguard can ensure their safety.
Making your living room cosy for the winter can really help you to appreciate it more. Many families spend the majority of their time at home in the living room, so comfort should be the primary aspect of the room. Once you’ve decorated for the winter, you can relax and put your feet up in the cosiest room of the house.
