Tips and tricks to add warmth to any room

If you’re feeling the chill this winter, we’ve got some brilliant tips on how to add warmth to any room... Searching for the secrets to cosy and welcoming décor for your home? Want to add warmth without adding too much stuff? Look no further for inspiration!

Work with natural materials and nature

Adding warmth to your room without adding clutter is simple. If you want to keep your décor understated and only want to use a few pieces of furniture, choose natural materials as they convey an incredible sense of warmth. In your lounge, you might consider a reclaimed wood coffee table paired with a wool area rug. In the dining room, you can make use of linen napkins and curtains in nude colours. Glass mason jars make for interesting table centrepieces, and you can fill them with citrus fruit or beeswax candles and swap them out regularly to avoid boredom.

Low-maintenance greenery in ceramic planters will instantly add a more homely, natural feel. Bring nature indoors with leafy houseplants, or interesting-looking succulents for a warmer feel in a room.

Add texture and layers

Think white-washed, or distressed-look wooden frames filled with family portraits. Hand-woven reed baskets. Bamboo blinds. Thick grass rugs. Ceramic vases. Not only are these textures visually appealing, but they also create a welcoming warmth in any space.

Forget matching each colour and texture; here you want to layer as many textures and patterns together to create a cozy, indulgent environment. Pile plush cushions on your sofas, or add warm oriental woven rugs to the floor, or on top of your existing carpeting for extra warmth underfoot.

Introduce colour

Pinks, oranges, reds and browns will instantly make a room feel a lot warmer. You can add these into the colour scheme through the soft furnishings like curtains, scatter cushions, tablecloths and throws. A thick linen curtain is a wonderful winter staple. Not only will curtains warm a room visually if you choose a deep cranberry or a rich chocolate hue, but they’ll be physically warmer as well – blocking out cold draughts and helping to keep the heat in.

When it comes to colour and texture on the walls, picking paint colours for a wall can be tricky. Choosing between warm and cool, rich and vibrant colours can be confusing and the paint colour on the wall often doesn’t match up to the expectations created by the colour swatch.

Complement with a wood finish

Save yourself the colour-induced headache and use wall panels instead. With wall panels, what you see is what you get – and that’s an instant boost of texture and interest to any wall. You can choose from a variety of natural-looking wood finishes – complement a dark, rich colour scheme with the lighter oak or white wash finish to create depth and warmth.

If you’ve chosen an airy, light colour scheme for your room, you could consider creating an intense contrast by utilising the chestnut or mahogany wall panels. These wood panels are incredibly easy to install, and the installation kit comes with everything you need to get the job done.

Soft lighting

Soften the lighting in a room to add warmth. Make use of lamps – table or standing – to create a soft ambiance. Wall-mounted candle sconces and hurricane lamps introduce a flickering, inviting warmth. Add mirrors and metallic décor elements to reflect the glow you’ve created and enjoy!
