Making a Large Room Cosy

Do you have a large room that you are afraid will feel cold and empty? Creating a cosy atmosphere in a large room can make it feel more inviting and comfortable. Here are some of our top tips to make a large room feel cosy:

  1. Use warm colours: Choose warm and earthy tones for your walls, such as shades of beige, taupe, or warm grey. These colours create a cosy and intimate ambiance.

  2. Add texture: Incorporate different textures into your space through textiles like throw blankets, pillows, and rugs. Consider using materials like sheepskin, wool, or velvet to add depth and warmth.

  3. Arrange furniture for conversation: Create smaller conversation areas within the large room by arranging furniture in a more intimate manner. Position sofas and chairs facing each other to encourage conversation and create a cosy atmosphere.

  4. Layer lighting: Utilise a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a warm and inviting ambiance. Incorporate table lamps, floor lamps, and wall sconces to provide soft, warm light throughout the room.

  5. Add a fireplace or candles: If possible, install a fireplace or opt for electric or gas alternatives to bring a cosy focal point to the room. If a fireplace isn't feasible, consider placing candles in clusters around the room to add a warm, flickering glow.

  6. Incorporate soft textiles: Use curtains or drapes to soften large windows and add a touch of elegance. Additionally, incorporate plush upholstery, soft blankets, and comfortable cushions to make the space feel cosy and inviting.

  7. Create intimate spaces: Divide the room into smaller zones or areas with purposeful furniture placement. This can include a reading nook, a relaxation corner with a comfortable chair and ottoman, or a cosy seating area around a coffee table.

  8. Add natural elements: Bring nature indoors by incorporating plants, flowers, or natural elements like wood and stone. These elements can create a sense of warmth and connection with the outdoors.

  9. Use decorative accessories: Display personal mementos, artwork, or decorative objects that hold sentimental value. These personal touches can make a large room feel more intimate and cosy.

The key to making a large room feel cosy is to create smaller, intimate spaces, incorporate warm colours and textures, and pay attention to lighting. Adapt these tips to suit your personal style and preferences, and don't hesitate to experiment and make the space your own.
