How To Give Your Home The Feel Of A Cottage

How to give your home a cottage look and feel

Because it’s starting to get cold, it makes us crave warmth and the place to get it is in your home. 

Or at least it will be if it has a cottage-feel about it, which isn’t as difficult to accomplish as you may think. 

You don’t need to reside in a cottage to achieve the feel, as it can be established in anything from an old bungalow to a modern apartment. 

We can inform you of what touches need to be implemented to give you a cosy cottage-like atmosphere.

The feel: improve thermal comfort indoors

The inside of your house should be consistently warm when you need it most. If it’s not, that needs to be remedied. 

Get your fire burning and purchase some thick throws and blankets so that you can get nice and snug under them. It’s also important to have energy efficient windows and doors installed throughout as they will store heat. 

The thermal efficiency they offer will also prevent the need for excessive use of your heater system. 

Keeping your heating use to a minimum will stop your energy bills becoming too expensive at a time when fuel costs are at an all-time high.

The look: follow the cottagecore movement

After making the feel of the house as warm and welcoming as you can, add to that warmth with your decor by changing to a cottagecore theme. 

The movement is all about a romanticised idea of living in the countryside and it’s a theme that millions of home renovators have followed since the start of the pandemic because it makes spaces feel so comforting. 

Integral to the look are floral patterns and you can get those into a room with your soft furnishings, such as curtains and valances, wallpaper and antique drawer knobs. 

If buying new windows and doors, select a pastel-coloured finish for them for a cottage-type effect, and request the inclusion of Georgian bars. 

A cottagecore-inspired decor will be reminiscent of a different time, but you don’t want windows and doors that perform like windows and doors of old.
