Discovering Cozy Spaces at Home

Make your house a home by curating all its cozy spaces. These hidden areas can be found in nooks, corners, even staircases of your home. With just the right design elements we can add inviting spots throughout your open floor plan and enhance the look and feel of your home. Let’s begin creating your favorite new spot together.

High Ceilings

It’s common for open concept homes to have high ceilings too. So, consider the ceiling in your plan. To design cozy spaces and deliver an intimate atmosphere, paint the ceilings a darker shade, add wood accents, expose beams or use wallpaper to warm the space.

Window Treatments: Darkness brings that warm, snug feeling you’re looking for on a lazy Friday night, but by morning, you’ll need to be productive again. With the dual shades feature, you can have the best of both worlds. Close the shades for almost complete darkness or open them and let the sunshine in.

Intimate Settings

Give off a warm, cozy vibe by arranging furniture in close proximity. Here, a small table and comfortable chairs creates an intimate dining experience. Draw the shades to close off the outside world for a private meal with that special someone. The candles and chandelier add a layer of romance, bringing it all together.

Window Treatments: Even though you have a beautiful view, there are times you might just want to close it off. It’s nice to have both options. Automated window treatments adjust shades to “open” or “close” without lifting a finger, just say the word.  

Designated Areas

Nooks are a great way to enhance your life at home. Establish cozy spaces around the house  to read a book, take a nap or enjoy a cup of tea. Carve out a dedicated corner for some peace and quiet-simply add a favorite blanket, some plush cushions and enjoy the change of seasons from your comfy new spot.

Window Treatments: A window can heat up a small space very quickly without the right light control. Choosing window coverings that filter the sunshine into glowing light is key, don’t let bright sunshine chase you out of your new cozy nest. 

The Elements for Cozy Spaces

Many elements must come together to design cozy spaces. Materials and fabrics matter, but so does furnishings and room placement. By adding a warm area rug, pillows, blankets, and a seating layer, you are well on your way! Remember levels of lighting allow you to use your space under any circumstances. Soft lighting such as table lamps and sconces are best.

Window Treatments: Window shades that take shape can add–not only the function of energy efficiency–but also the visual interest for a cozy area with textures that make the space feel snug.

Adjustable Lighting

Ambient lighting can start cool and bright for productivity and increased energy and by evening, the lighting warms up, similar to the late afternoon sun. Now you can harness this natural lighting concept in your own home. The feature is called Aura Illuminated Shades, with LED strip lighting. This new innovation creates mood and atmosphere right at the window. Change the lighting from cool to warm whenever you desire.
