While an open concept space is perfect for entertaining, it can sometimes feel empty and cold during winter months. However, with a little rearranging and decorating, your space can feel cozy and comfortable as the temperatures drop this year. As you prepare your home for the chilly temperatures of late fall and early winter, consider these easy ways to make your open concept living space cozy and comfortable this winter.
Choose a Focal Point in the Space
By choosing a focal point of the room in an open concept space, you can begin to arrange your furniture with a central location in mind. Whether your focal point is the living room floor or the television, arranging your furniture around a central location is a great start for creating a cozy feeling in your new space.
Section Spaces with Cozy Rugs
Rugs are excellent tools for sectioning off spaces of an open concept living space. While it is important to keep your space somewhat open, throwing down a few rugs in your living space is the perfect way to designate certain parts of your space as seating or dining areas. Cozy rugs are also perfect for warming up an otherwise empty and cold space, as continuous hardwood or tile floors can often leave open concept spaces feeling empty.
Add Comfortable Furnishings and Fun Accessories
Warm up your open concept space with comfortable furnishings and fun accessories for you, your family, and your holiday guests to enjoy! This is also an excellent way to personalize your open concept space, as well as create special spaces for your guests and family to sit and enjoy your home this winter. Add personality and comfort to your home with soft pillows, travel souvenirs, and special decorations to make your living space instantly feel like home.
