How to Create Extra Coziness and Warmth at Home This Winter

Many of us are feeling anxious and stressed lately as the pandemic continues to take a toll. To combat this, take refuge in the safety and comfort of home. With colder weather approaching, now is the perfect time to make sure it’s a cozy, inviting space to enjoy.


Decorate your interiors


Never underestimate the impact of a few strategically placed textiles and decorative elements. For example, drape a plaid or Sherpa throw on the back of your couch or the edge of your bed, and sprinkle some fuzzy pillows on armchairs. An area rug can instantly make any room feel warmer and adds style and personality – you can even try one in your kitchen or bathroom. Experiment with fun textures, like a rich velvet or woolly cable knit.


Reinvent your basement


This underused space can become anything you want, but consider transforming it into a “you” space – somewhere you can cocoon, unwind and enjoy your favourite activities. Whether a mini library and reading nook or crafting and sewing room is what you dream of, the first step in your basement makeover is a performance subfloor like Dricore. The easy-to-install panels help protect against moisture and provide warmth and comfort, so you can feel cozy even in your bare feet. Once you have this solid foundation, infuse the room with items that inspire joy and relaxation, like your favourite scented candles, meaningful mementoes, fresh flowers or greenery, and soothing warm neutral colours.


Update your artwork


Bare walls feel cold and isolating, so make sure you hang plenty of interesting pieces. Large-scale, bold art works well in a contemporary home, while a more rustic or vintage aesthetic would benefit from a quirky gallery wall. Another great idea is to frame photos of your favourite memories, especially of activities that are on hold right now, like big family gatherings for special occasions or faraway vacations. Consider using natural materials like wood to bring extra warmth to your artwork and photography.
