Bedroom Ideas So Cozy You’ll Never Want to Leave

If there’s one spot in a home that most people want to describe as ‘cozy,’ it’s the bedroom. This space is all about relaxation. You go there to unwind after a long day and (hopefully) get some really good sleep. The cozier it is, the more easily you’ll shift into that relaxing state and drift off to sleep.

But how exactly do you create a cozy bedroom? It isn’t just in the style. Any decorating style can be made cozy. What makes a room cozy are certain textures and elements paired with whatever you specifically respond to. Typically, cozy elements include faux fur, knit, luxurious bedding, plush pillows, a soft area rug, and a color palette that is easy on the eyes. Then, include some special elements that mean something to you, like artwork that brings back warm memories.

Here are some cozy bedrooms to give you some ideas and inspiration.
