Creating A Cosy Corner

Because a lot of UK homes are a little on the smaller side (by US standards) so every corner needs to be fully utilised, it makes sense to build right into these coves or at least make the most of them in any way feasible. This is where a cosy nook is ideal.

Cosy Oak FurnitureA cosy nook is a perfect place to retreat and unwind from the day and enjoy a little alone time. While it’s entirely feasible to fit two people into a little nook, it’s more often than not seen as a hideaway for one. To give it that cosy feel, you can utilise spaces which might otherwise be made redundant. The space that seems to gather all sorts of bits and bobs we don’t know what to do with, beneath the stairs is a perfect example. If you rely on it to store your hoover and ironing board, then that may not be the most efficient solution, but I know from my own experience that whenever I’ve had space, I’ve somehow managed to pack it up with things that I’d then never use again.

Lofts are another great space to create a little nook. The slanted walls present themselves particularly well for creating a cosy sanctuary. You don’t have to go all agrarian and the colour scheme entirely depends on your taste. However, natural materials help a lot when it comes to creating a friendly atmosphere. So, I would certainly advise against anything too fresh and minimalist.

Lighting is crucial when it comes to creating a relaxed atmosphere. No one can enjoy a cosy evening with a harsh overhead light. Small light sources like candles and fairy lights are perfect for a little space. The right light will create the right setting even if space might not be ideal. The same goes for loads of cushions and comfy throws. After all, nobody wants to be cold when reading.

You could, of course, take an entirely different course and have a small “tent” inside your home to hide away in. Drapes of fabric hung from the ceiling can create a space within a room. The size would depend solely on the size of your room and personal preference.

You can build a cosy corner with just a few ingredients like a comfortable chair, a lamp, some natural accessories, and layered rugs. A fireplace unquestionably helps, but if that’s not a possibility, then a few candles are an excellent choice.
