So you’re looking to create a calm and cosy relaxation area. Maybe you need a space to escape to or are wanting to have an area you can curl up in to read a book or listen to music. Whether you are planning to dedicate a whole room or a corner, there are many different ways you can make this special, relaxing space. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Your calm and cosy relaxation area is going to need a comfortable seat to relax in. And seating doesn’t get more comfy and snuggly than bean bag furniture from Big Bertha. And the best part is that they are available in all sorts of styles, shapes and sizes so you will be able to find the right one for you. If you have the space, a Mega Mammoth bean bag allows you to sit, slouch, or sprawl. For smaller spaces, a high-back bean bag chair with a footrest makes a cosy choice.
Adding your favourite colours, the ones that make you smile, will make your space a positive place to escape to. Alternatively, choose some relaxing colours, greens and blues are considered soothing a grounding. You can use these colours on the walls, in the furniture you choose, and in accessories.
Did you know that plants can help you relax? Studies have found that having plants in your home environment can help to increase your levels of relaxation. If you aren’t very green fingered an artificial plant or even just looking at images of nature can help you to feel more calm. And for plant fanatics, it’s an excellent excuse to get that new plant for your relaxation area.
Light fixtures can be a simple and inexpensive way to change the look of a room and make it more cosy. Add a light with a dimmer to create a calmer feeling, or experiment with fairy lights. Candles are also amazing for creating a cosy atmosphere. Add floor lanterns or tealights for a soft, relaxing glow.
Adding textures to your space will instantly help to create the calm and cosy feel you are going for. Think rugs, fur throws and cushions. Stick to a colour theme or add splashes of colour for positivity.
