Having a cozy home to come back to at the end of the day is what everyone strives for, and it makes cold winter months easier to get through. You may be wondering if there are changes and renovations you can make that will help create a cozier feeling other than upgrading furniture and adding décor. Paint colors can have an impact on your mental and emotional state. If you are looking to create a more comfortable space, you can look into repainting your home’s interior to help!
What Goes into a Cozy Room?
Most people would describe a cozy space as somewhere that feels inviting. These spaces can be big or small. The coziness is conveyed either way to make the area seem intimate and warm. Colors that are considered cozy tend to be on the warmer spectrum. These are saturated hues that lean towards a warm red, orange, or yellow. However, you are also able to pick from other places on the color wheel to create this feeling. You could use neutral colors like a chocolate brown or darker blues and greens that can also create a snug space.
Pairing these paint elements with other textures in the room make it easier to create a cozy home. So, fill your space with soft blankets, warm rugs, and other big, fluffy furniture to complement your paint.
Cozy Paint Colors
You can choose to fill your entire home with one color or go room by room depending on how creative you are feeling.
If you are sticking with one paint color for the whole house, it might work out to go with something that is a creamy and warm neutral. This way it matches the rest of your home’s décor without much effort. These colors could be a creamy white, a dark navy, or even shades of gray. For those that aren’t afraid of color in their home, going with soft blues, light yellows, or even deep reds and oranges can create an entirely different feeling.
If you are open to trying out different colors in each room, this can open up the options for you when it comes to having different designs for each room. You can create a cozy living room by centering your colors around the fireplace. This looks like warm colors that mimic the flames so yellows, reds, oranges, and browns. Kitchen colors can be a darker green that resembles pesto or spinach as well as a warm brown that brings back the feeling of being in a kitchen filled with delicious smells. In rooms, rich tones may bring about deeper and more comforting sleep so go with deep reds or blues.
This is a creative process that you can collaborate with others on. Everyone has their own sense of what feels cozy so feel free to deviate from standard color recommendations.
