Looking for inspiration on how to create your very own cosy snug in your home? Look no further……
Open plan living grew hugely in popularity in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Whilst it still holds its popularity for cooking and dining areas, more and more people are looking for a quiet, secluded and cosy area in their homes; somewhere they can hide away from the stress and chaos of everyday life.
‘Snugs’ can work in all sorts of households. Choose a family-friendly space that works for family members of all ages, or a luxurious adult-only room. A snug provides a space to escape technology in favour of a warm, cosy night snuggled up with a good book.
Encouraged by the ‘hygge’ concept that has invaded interior design trends of late, snugs embrace all things comfortable, cosy and relaxing.
Creating the perfect snug
Snugs can come in all shapes and sizes. It’s just a matter of finding a space that you can utilise in your home. From an under-stair cupboard, to a cellar room or a dressing room. Even those without a separate room can reserve a corner of a living space with a special reading chair to create their snug.
When creating your snug, think comfy and cosy. Dimmable lighting is a must, as are soft, natural colours. Luxurious rugs and soft plush seating are essential for creating the desired effect.
