How To Make Your Home More Hygge

The hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-ga’) concept is based on the idea of being cosy and content through your surroundings and wellness. It’s not just a feeling, it’s a lifestyle. And what better season to bring that into your home than during autumn and winter?


With the COVID 19 pandemic and lockdown forcing people to stay at home, we’re all seeking ways to make home more and more comfortable. As a result, emerging interior design trends such as ‘cottagecore’ and ‘modern rustic’ have allowed homeowners and decorators to bring warmth and solace into their homes.


Here are a few ways you can bring a sense of hygge into your home.

 

Choose Your Colour Palette

The colour and tones within your home represent the aura it brings. If you have bright yellow and mint green walls, although they look amazing, they don’t connote calm, comfort and zen like others do.


Earthy shades such as muted green, taupe, warm beige and dusty blue all present a particular atmosphere that is key to creating the hygge vibe in your home. Whether you decide to paint the walls, change the flooring or switch out the decor to recreate this color palette, is entirely up to you.


We think that blinds are an easy way to bring in colour and cost-effective too. The Hopsack Wicker roman blinds bring the perfect balance of shades and would make a great addition to any room in the home.

 

Bring In The Warmth

To make your home feel more cosy, you have to make sure it is warm and toasty. Warmth in the home allows you to encompass a sense of comfort and snugness. Whether you do that through a large renovation project like underfloor heating or an open fire, or through smaller furnishings, it’s entirely up to you!


We have a range of thermal energy saving blinds and curtains that would make your home much warmer and without splashing the cash.

 

Add A Rustic Vibe


Hygge Interior Living Room with Taped Grey Faux Wood Blinds


Wooden blinds are a brilliant way to complete the hygge trend as it is a great finishing touch that will last. With a neutral range of options that will bring a bit of cosiness into your home, you can be assured that they will match any home decor you already have.


Designed and tailored for daily use, our range of wooden blinds are available in a range of shades, stains and colours, providing a timeless backdrop to your rustic themed decor.


Whilst these blinds are perfect for a living room or bedroom, they are water-resistant so they could also be used in a kitchen or bathroom. With the option for ‘extra wide’ blinds, they will be suitable for even the biggest windows in your home.
