Uncovering Cozy Spaces in Your Home

Whether you have an open concept home or designated rooms, creating a warm and comfortable environment for your family is the ultimate goal. Uncovering small spaces and transforming them into cozy nooks will result in a “there’s no place like home” kinda feeling. Let’s explore a few designer secrets that will help you ensure those cozy spaces throughout your home. 

Begin with the Ceilings

To create instant cozy spaces, it’s key to darken the ceilings. Whether you choose to paint them, add wood accents, expose beams or cover them with wallpaper; darkening will result in a more intimate atmosphere. This change will deliver the intimate atmosphere you are searching for.

Window Treatments: Darkness quiets an environment and makes it feel warm and cozy at night. But, come morning, you may want to re-energize the space with sunlight and get a productive day started. Our dual shades feature can be adjusted to create both atmospheres. You can have the best of both worlds.

Privacy Matters

If your home has wide open areas, no worries. You can still designate spaces throughout for a more intimate setting. A dining table with comfortable chairs becomes a cozy space to enjoy dinner or a private conversation. Close off the outside world with window shades and be completely present. The chandelier plays well within this design and  completes this cozy space.

Designated Relaxation

Enhance your life by uncovering cozy spaces in your home. Designate a spot for your morning coffee, a good book or afternoon nap. Upgrade the space with comfy cushions, plush blankets and pillows to make it feel special. A small private nook all to yourself is just what you need to relax and unwind. Create loving spaces all around your home.

Window Treatments: A small space by a window can heat up very quickly. It can chase you away OR put you right to sleep. Avoid the harsh glare or direct rays of the sun with window coverings that invite glowing light. Create a neutral environment for your cozy spaces and enjoy the peace and quiet.  

Perfect Elements for Cozy Spaces

It takes a combination of materials and fabrics to create the perfect cozy space. Invite comfort with pillows, plush blankets and comfy seating to start, next, contour the environment with levels of lighting that can be useful under any circumstance. Quiet soft lighting, like sconces and table lamps will enhance the vibe of your small space and complete the look.

Window Treatments: Texture and filtered light are important elements in designing your cozy spaces. Woven materials are a beautiful way to add these features to your home.

Adjust the Mood

Ambient lighting is changing the way we use light in our homes, even with the shades down. Ambient light changes in temperature over the course of the day, providing cool bright light for productivity and increased energy, but by evening, the light warms up creating a warm glow. Now, this natural lighting concept is possible at the window with Aura Illuminated Shades, with LED strip lighting. You can change lighting from cool to warm whenever you desire throughout the day.
