Home living room that includes elements of hygge such as a rug, throw pillows and blankets,  and warm tones.

Ready for a home that is both warm and inviting? Then you need to embrace the hygge home movement! Fortunately, it doesn’t take a lot of work–or even a big budget–to create a space that makes you cozy and comfortable during the colder months.

Rearranging key pieces in your home or exchanging seasonal accents can cozy up your space and capture those hygge vibes you’re looking for. Whether you’ve been waiting to install hardwood floors, finally splurge on that comfy sofa you’ve been eyeing, or switching to softer lighting, here are five tips that will surely make you feel like you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home this winter.

hygge (noun):

a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.

Update your bedding

It’s time to trade in your crisp, cotton and linen sheets for flannel and thick knit blankets. As a budget-friendly alternative, you can layer on linen sheets and go for a more “undone” look. It creates the illusion of an expensive bedroom while still making it feel cozy and extremely inviting. Linen is also a more durable fabric, so you’ll only have to buy them once.

Layer on the rugs

What’s one way to ensure your home is extra warm and cozy? Rugs, of course! Whether they are pet-friendly rugs, vintage rugs, or even indoor/outdoor rugs, there’s a solution for every room of your home. If you don’t have carpet, it may be a good idea to layer two different types of rugs to instantly create not only a visually appealing space, but also provide all the warmth you and your feet need.

Incorporate wood accents

Wood is known to instantly warm up a room, and even small hints of it can create a very pleasant and welcoming environment. Add warm elements such as hardwood floors, a dresser or coffee table, wood shelving, or accents such as décor bowls, ladders, stools, or trays.

Add texture

Now is the perfect time to bring in more fluffy pillows and accents. Add one or two lush pillows to your couch, hang textured wall art, stack books by size and scale for an interesting arrangement, or place vases around the same space to recreate a collected feel of a library.

Switch up your window treatments

If you normally have sheer linen curtains, consider exchanging them for heavier fabrics, such as ones made of velvet or any that boasts thermal lining. Not only will you automatically give each room an instant refresh, but they can even help lower heating costs by helping to keep cold air outside.
