Cozy Bedroom Decorating Ideas
There’s a reason that “cozy” is one of the most common words used to describe the perfect bedroom, and it’s because the term encompasses all of the characteristics most people desire in the most personal area of their home: warm, welcoming, comfortable, snug and safe. If you’d like to make your bedroom cozier, here are eight tips that will help you turn your bedroom into the snuggest spot in your home. OPPEIN offers perfect bedroom furniture and wardrobes.
Color it Warm
For the most part, a cozy bedroom is a warm bedroom. Not in actual temperature, but in color. The hot side of the spectrum draws a space in visually, creating a snug and secure feeling.
Here are some cozy colors:
Lots of varying textures not only add interest to a room, they also make the space feel comfortable and welcoming. The most obvious way to add texture to a bedroom is with the bedding: fuzzy throw blankets, knit pillows or blankets, thick quilts or comforters, faux fur on toss pillows or blankets. Other ways to add texture to your room include:

A cozy room has plenty of pattern. That doesn’t mean an overwhelming, busy riot of designs; it just means that this isn’t the look for extensive stretches of solid color. When decorating with a mix of patterns, you won’t go wrong as long as you:
• Choose patterns that have at least one color in common
• Pick patterns in varying scales: for instance, one large pattern, one small pattern and one in the middle
• Use large patterns on large surfaces, such as curtains or bedding; and small patterns on small surfaces, such as throw pillows or lampshades
• Stick with five or less different patterns to avoid overload
• Spread pattern evenly throughout the room
There are many types of window treatments that work well in the bedroom, but if you are going for cozy, your best choice is usually curtains. Fabric window coverings not only add another layer of texture to the space; they also soften the large expanse of wall. If your bedroom is very small, make it look a little larger by picking curtains the same color – or slightly darker – than the walls. Otherwise, choose curtains that add a happy touch of color and pattern to the space.
It’s hard to deny the cozy – and luxurious – appeal of an upholstered headboard that is large enough to be impressive. Wooden or metal headboards have definite charm, but are simply not as cozy as fabric, especially if that fabric is something thick and textured like velvet, canvas or denim. So go big and go upholstered when it’s time to choose a headboard. A solid stretch of fabric works well in country or other casual styles, while tufted headboards add a splash of romance to more traditional or dramatic looks
The bed is the star of any bedroom, but it really sets the pace in a room decorated for maximum coziness. This isn’t the style that skimps on bedding, or goes for a minimal set of sheets, duvet and one bed pillow. No, the cozy bed is piled high with comfortable sheets; a snuggly quilt, duvet or comforter; at least one throw blanket across the bed’s foot; a set of shams to contrast the bed pillows; and several throw pillows (three is the perfect number, but if you really want to go crazy, you can use five.)
Stick with solid white or colored sheets, but when choosing your bed topper, remember that pattern equals cozy.
There is something inherently cozy about a reading nook, even if it’s nothing more than a comfortable, upholstered chair with a floor lamp positioned behind it and a colorful throw blanket tossed over the chair’s back. And you’ll find there’s something wonderfully peaceful about spending a few minutes quietly sitting before bedtime, or in the morning before starting your busy day. Don’t think you don’t have enough space for a chair; even a tiny bedroom generally has enough room to tuck a small seat in the corner. Pick a chair that’s upholstered, – not a wooden or plastic piece – has arms, and has a reasonably high back so you can really relax and sink into the chair, yet still be supported comfortably. So cozy.
