With the onset of winter comes a natural desire to hunker down and stay warm during the colder months - and no place is more cosy and welcoming than your bedroom this time of year. But, to ensure you create the perfect remedy for coping with the cold weather outside in your bedroom, we’ve got you covered. 

In today’s post, we’re going to be sharing some interior design musts to ensure your bedroom is blissful, beautiful and primed as a restful winter retreat, looking at everything from the position of the bed to calming colour schemes and more!

Loveable Layouts

When it comes to delivering a restful aesthetic in your bedroom this season, one of the first considerations should be the layout of the room. Granted, there may be some limitations with this in terms of size, positioning of doors, windows and radiators, but where possible try and arrange the room to make the best use of floor space and avoid any potential issues that could affect the overall feel of the room.

For instance, repositioning your bed away from drafty windows or direct heat sources will ensure you attain the right temperature for a good night’s sleep, while making sure there are clear pathways to easily navigate through the room will help instill a sense of space. This may require playing around with furniture placement, but the end result will be worth it when you’re greeted by a relaxing space to sleep each night!

Of course, you don’t have to steer clear of bold colours entirely to achieve a warm, winter wonderland. Opting for splashes of jewel tones inspired by ruby, emerald, topaz and sapphire will lend a luxurious edge that begs you to snuggle under the duvet, whether that’s in an opulent ottoman-style bed or a more simple double design

Calming Colours

As a place for relaxing and sleeping, it’s no surprise that many bedroom designs favour neutral palettes that offer up a more sleep conducive ambience. However, this definitely doesn’t mean your colour scheme has to be bland - far from it in fact, there are plenty of options for adding character and colour, especially in winter. 

From pale terracottas and soft lilacs to rich creams and cool blues, delicate pastels and warm hues are ideal for delivering a serene setting. Mix in some pretty patterns and a variety of shades and textures in your key colour of choice and the room will instantly feel transformed.

Luxurious Layers

It goes without saying that one of the best ways to style your room for warmth this winter is with a myriad of layers and different textures - switching out light, summery fabrics for plush, thick alternatives. 

Chunky knit throws, faux-fur scatter cushions and deep-pile rugs underfoot are all sure-fire ways to cosy things up when the temperatures plummet outside, instantly creating a homely feel. And, don’t forget your curtains, too. Even new, energy-efficient windows can dramatically impact on the inside temperature of your bedroom, so be savvy and dress your windows accordingly with thermal curtains that will keep the heat in and the cold well and truly out! 

Speaking of windows, now is also the perfect time to address any draughts or problem areas that could be affecting the heating efficiency of your home. Whether you go all out and replace your bedroom windows with new ones or simply apply some much-needed repairs, tackling any issues early in the season will ensure your bedroom stays toasty all winter long.
