7 steps to a more comfortable home
Sat 25 Nov 2017
Everyone deserves to have a house they love coming home to – a refuge from the world and a place to rest and recuperate. From layering up the soft furnishings to stopping up draughts, these simple design ideas will help you up the snug factor for a comfortable and stylish home.
2. Embrace hygge
Possibly the best thing to come out of Denmark since the pastry, hygge (pronounce hoo-gah) is a concept that puts comfort and happiness at the heart of daily life. Roughly translated as ‘cosiness’, you can bring a little hygge into your life with some soft candlelight, warm jumpers and hot drinks shared with friends and family on a frosty evening.
7. Make it comfy from top to bottom
Hard floors are wonderfully practical and stylish but in cold weather we crave a little bit more warmth, so layer them up with rugs and runners to keep the heat in and soften the feel of a room. For the ultimate in cosy comfort, invest in underfloor heating. Unlike radiators that create hot spots and leave some areas draughty and cold, heating wires beneath your feet disperse heat evenly throughout the room.
