Winter is here and cosy creature comforts offer a welcome escape from the drop in temperature. Snuggle up to a good night’s sleep with these top tips and products from our retailers.
Tip 1: Update Your Bedding
The easiest way to transition your bedroom into winter is by changing your regular quilt for something a little heavier and warmer. Consider wool quilts for their lightweight feel and luxury quality. Soft and cosy, wool regulates the body temperature whilst you sleep, keeping the environment warm and comfortable all night.

Tip 2: Colour Therapy
Use colour therapy to create a sense of calm and relaxation in your bedroom. The color blue is a great shade for building sleepful zen vibes and has even been shown to reduce blood pressure and to relax the mind. That makes for a good segway into a night of sleep!

Tip 3: Switch Up Your Lighting
As the days become shorter and colder, lighting is a key element of bedroom design that can help beat the winter blues. Tweak your lighting by opting for warm globes over cooler options, to avoid the room looking flat and uninviting.
We also recommend using a layered approach and scattering lights around the bedroom to add ambiance. Illuminate the room by evenly distributing table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights to keep your home looking bright! Get inspired with a range of modern solutions from Beacon Lighting and The Lighting Superstore.

Tip 4: Layer
One of the simplest ways to update your home’s décor is to introduce layers. Cushions and throw blankets are ideal for snuggling up on a winter’s night and are a versatile and trendy way to add texture and colour to your bedroom. Wool and velvet are popular this season and can work with your current bedding to create a luxurious look.

Tip 6: Rug Up
For those with hard floors, rugs can instantly soften a space and add much-needed underfoot warmth for those early morning rises. Even if you have carpet, rugs provide extra texture and can help visually pull together a room. Earth tones like terracotta, burnt orange and turmeric are one of the hottest trends this season and can offer a rich backdrop to your bedroom.
