Get cosy this Autumn with these super easy home updates

*Collaborative post

Autumn is a time for snuggling up, getting cosy and binging on a TV box set or two. It also means that most of us will be spending more time indoors, away from the cold, harsh weather outside. But if your home is feeling a little lacklustre after the glorious days of summer and a little tired then you might be wondering how you can spruce it up and get into the autumn/winter spirit.

 

Well, read on for 6 super easy home updates you can do this Autumn.

 

Update your flooring

 

Updating your flooring might seem a little drastic, but with colder weather on the way, a brand new, thick pile carpet could be just what the Dr ordered, or if you’re hoping for a more stylish look, laminate or hardwood would also look incredible. Just remember to visit skirtingsrus.co.uk and update your skirting boards while you’re at it.

 

Add a new rug

 

If you’re already happy with your flooring, don’t have permission or the budget to make drastic changes, then don’t worry. Adding a new rug into your living room, the hallway or even the bedroom can drastically change the look and feel of a room. You can even use it to add a pop of colour into your home.

Switch to ambient lighting

 

During the darker months of the year, it’s all about ambient lighting and creating a cosy feel. Adding a few extra lamps here and there will give any room atmosphere and provide a pleasant source of light without feeling blinded by large overhead fixtures. Fairy lights are a cute addition to any room and aren’t just for Christmas! You can hang them around door frames, mirrors and even your headboard. If you want to cast a warm and cosy glow then why not consider installing a dimmer switch?

Treat yourself to some fresh new bedding

 

There’s nothing better than slipping into fresh sheets at bedtime…apart from slipping into brand new fresh sheets at bedtime. The colder months are coming, so why not treat yourself to a lovely set of brand new bedding? Pillows and duvets as well as covers and bed linen are available in a variety of thickness and levels of comfort. So you can hibernate in peace and in style at the same time.

Add some accessories

 

In the summer time, we find ourselves drawn to the minimalistic side of things, we want clear and uncluttered spaces but as Autumn sets in we’re drawn to lots of layers, gorgeous patterns and stylish textures. So, bring a little into your bedroom or living room with a new throw, lots of scatter cushions and even a bean bag or two for optimum comfort.

Pictures

 

I bet you spent a lot of your summer, taking pictures and making memories with those you love the most. And if most of those memories are stuck in your phone, then why not get the printed and hung up on the wall?

    Yep I love to treat myself to a new cosy duvet cover, something brushed cotton-y for warmth! We also have a fleece fitted sheet- super cosy!
