Making your bedroom warm and cosy

Why not transform your bedroom into a relaxing retreat from the cold? Somewhere you can dream, hang out, prepare for the new day or reflect on events just passed. Feeling comfortable and relaxed is also a big step on the way to a good night’s sleep.

Want a layered effect?

First thing is the bed. Layers can give it instant cosy appeal. You could even try going overboard and adding bedspreads, throws and cushions – too much is not enough.

A soft touch for your toes

There’s nothing feet like more than sinking into a thick, fluffy rug first thing in the morning, especially on chilly days. A soft rug helps to add a cosy look and feel to the room, too.

Setting the mood with textiles

You can have a lot of fun using textiles in your bedroom. Why not create a cocoon effect around your bed? Or hang different fabrics on your wall to add a touch of drama to your space?

Duvets that suit you

Snuggling up in a cosy duvet equals instant comfort in the colder months. The IKEA duvet range has lots of different options to help you find the right duvet for the season and your body, whether it’s chilly or toasty outside.

A family get-together

When the cold winds blow, what better place to have a family get-together than your bedroom? Combine the warmth of being with your family with the warmth of everyone’s cushions, duvets and pillows to create one big sleepover. But you may need to be careful that no one rolls over too far.

Curtains to keep the warmth in

Block-out curtains are great for keeping out unwanted light, and they also have lots of other handy benefits. Their solid finish means they have a knack of making a room look cosy and feel warmer, as they keep heat in too.
