As the winter months are now in full swing, the dark nights draw in earlier than ever and the weather has taken a turn for the worse (if it was possible to get much worse), your home and more specifically your lounge needs to feel like an escape; somewhere you can relax in a warm, comfortable and cosy environment that sees you leave the bad weather locked outside! In order to achieve the warm, cosy feel in the lounge of your home, read on for a few tips for sure-fire success;
Utilise Warm Colours
At this time of year, if you want to create a cosy space, the colours of the walls play a huge part. Stick to warm colours such as reds, oranges and browns as opposed to paler, pastel colours as these will immediately seem as though they are bringing the walls in, therefore developing the warm, comfortable feel you are hoping for.
Add a Good Rug
Whenever you watch a film and it is snowing and cold outside, there is always a snug looking rug laid out in front of a roaring fire. This is something that can be easily achieved in your home, and although you might not have a real wood burning fire, the introduction of a rug can instantly add a more comfortable, homely atmosphere to the space.
Get Comfy Furniture
In order feel comfortable in the room, you need to ensure you have comfortable furniture to sit on, which is where we at Tailor Made Sofas come into the equation.

Things to consider include putting up curtains as opposed to blinds and the use of lamps situated around the room instead of ceilings lights to help develop the right feel within the room.
