The Best Curtains & Carpets for a Cosy Home

Home is where the heart is, and for many of us, that means a place that’s cosy, welcoming and comfortable. A lot of this depends on the curtains and carpets we choose, which can all add to the overall mood we’re trying to create.

So snuggle up with our top suggestions for curtains and carpets that will give your home the cosy touch.

Let the colours speak

The colour scheme you choose has a big impact on the atmosphere of your interiors.

Warm hues have long been associated with a rustic, homey decor, so reds, oranges, creams, browns or deep greens all suit the cosy style well.

Alternatively you could choose a neutral shade of carpet or curtain, and introduce this warmer palette via accents and decoration instead. 

Stay classy with velvet

The plush, elegant look of velvet makes it a go-to choice for anyone looking to put a cosy yet classy stamp on their home.

Velvet curtains or carpets soften up a room, both literally and figuratively, and curtains can also be paired with a sheer voile for that extra bit of layering.

Ordering your velvet curtains with a little extra length can also create a beautiful pooling effect at the bottom, which can also contribute to a snug appearance. 

Pop with patterns

Carpets and curtains don’t have to be plain.

Patterns and textures are a time-honoured way to conjure up a more homey, comfy vibe and because there are so many different ones available, it’s very easy to express your personality with patterned fabrics.

Also, if you’re looking to bring some warmth to a more minimal or plain room, then swapping in a patterned curtain or carpet is an easy first step towards your ‘cosy’ goals. 

Pair curtains with blinds

Layering curtains with blinds has a practical ability to provide greater levels of warmth and light control, but also fits in with the cosy aesthetic very well.

Simply consult with your preferred curtains and blinds provider to choose a colour, texture and pattern pairing that will work together perfectly. 

Soft and thick

When trying to create a cosy atmosphere, comfort is the number one priority.

Soft, thick carpet piles will go a long way to offering this comfort – though, of course, this won’t be practical in every room. For example, the landing and stairs may require a more resilient type of carpet to withstand the heavy footfall.

Or perhaps you prefer to complement a shorter carpet pile with a thick, fluffy rug as an accent. However you choose to do this will depend on your personal style. 

Freshen up your current carpets & curtains

Perhaps you don’t have the money spare to replace carpets or curtains?

In which case, professional cleaning of your current carpets and curtains is the perfect compromise.

Dirt can accumulate very gradually on fabrics, but can lead to a dulling of the colours and patterns that we used to love about our furnishings. Deep, professional cleaning can freshen your fabrics and breathe new life into them once more – and hopefully, make you fall in love with your home decor all over again.
