Ideas for a cosy living room

Creating a living room that’s inviting and cosy should be your top priority. We all spend most of our time at home in our living room, so however you decide to decorate, it’s vital that your finished room is a space in which you can cosy down at the end of a long day. If you’re stuck for cosy living room ideas, we’ve got you covered.



Wooden and laminate floors are very popular in most living rooms nowadays. So with that in mind, adding a statement rug or two is a great cosy living room idea. Having a large rug under your sofa will make it feel instantly more inviting. As will a patterned/ textured rug under a plain wooden table. If that’s too much texture for your taste, choose a smaller rug and place it under a side table or TV stand – it’ll create the same effect, while leaving more of your floor exposed.


Textured throws

Create a welcoming look by taking your texture to the next level. Throws are an affordable and cosy living room idea. You can use any colour to suit your scheme, neutral, a pop of colour or maybe some patterns!



Decorative cushions

Cosy living room ideas mean making your room more inviting, turning it into a space you want to spend time in. To add extra lounging appeal to your sofa, add decorative cushions in colours and patterns that match your scheme. Plain, monochrome or dark cushions work well in industrial living rooms. While something richer, like a patterned cushion will look great in a more exotic interior arrangement.



Ambient lighting

Cosy dark evenings call for mood lighting – a lower light level that’s still liveable will create a cosy effect much better than a stark white light. Go for lamps placed next to your sofa to create a nice and cosy feel.



These are just a couple of ideas, we would love to hear yours! Our next blog is going to be on colours in your home and how they affect your mood, stay tuned!
