As you prepare for spending more time indoors this winter, consider how you can improve your space. You may have heard of hygge, a Danish and Norwegian word that conveys a mood of coziness and contentment. This lifestyle can best be described as enjoying and appreciating the simple pleasures of life. Here are ways to incorporate hygge in your home.
4 Ways to Make Your Home A Cozy Retreat
Add light and warmth.
Utilize window treatments that draw in as much natural light as possible during the day. Place your lamps and light fixtures carefully in places where you want to invite coziness. Look for ways to use timeless and artistic light fixtures throughout your home, like the double wall sconces from Kohler’s Artifacts collection. At night, light some candles for the perfect atmosphere on a winter evening or curl up by the fireplace.
Simplify your stuff.
Having less clutter is sure to reduce stress for the entire family. Keep only the things that really make you happy and keep the household objects that have an emotional value or tell a story, while clearing away any purposeless items. Make use of storage space around the home. Bathroom medicine cabinets from Kohler can help you to reduce bathroom clutter.
Bring nature in.
Focus on neutral and nature-inspired color palettes and soft fabrics for a more calming environment. Kohler wood finishes can complement a variety of paint colors. Look for Kohler faucet finishes like Vibrant Polished Brass, Vibrant Brushed Bronze, Oil-Rubbed Bronze, Biscuit, and White, or specialty materials, Tumbled Bronze, Medium Patina, Satin Bronze, and Mirror French Gold.
Surround yourself with friends and family.
The kitchen is often the hub of the home, where families gather to prepare meals together and catch up. Consider kitchen trends, like having double islands, that allow for more storage and extra space for entertaining. More counter space also offers a place to add another sink and faucet for the ultimately efficient work space, allowing multiple people to prep, cook, or clean up at the same time. Whether rustic, contemporary, or vintage style, Kohler offers a perfect sink-and-faucet pair for every size and type of kitchen. They also offer additional features to help simplify your kitchen routines, accessories like basin racks, cutting boards, and colanders.
