With all of the winter weather lately we're looking to cozy up with a good book or a movie. Next to family rooms, basements are the most popular area where family's gather around a big screen. We like to think that the most important aspect for basements is comfort! Take a look at some of our designer's top choices for making your basement cozy and comfortable.
1. Lots of Pillows
For napping, reading, or watching the big screen, pillows are a necessity! Not only do pillows provide comfort on your seating but choosing a variety or prints, patterns, and colors can help create the perfect look in your room.
Don't feel restricted to bright colors when it comes to packing in the pillows. Take a note from the Huntington House 7100 series Sofa with Chaise that features the perfect pillows in neutral hues!
2. Throws for All!
For a traditional look in family friendly leather, try the Grandview Sectional by Bernhardt.
Another Bernhardt sectional with seating for the whole family and a more contemporary look, the Dorian Sectional features a sleek track arm.
4. Large Cocktail Table or Ottoman
An over-sized ottoman or cocktail table is a great choice for your basement. Use trays atop to gather accessories and hold drinks or move the ottoman closer for the perfect place to rest your feet.
Probably not your first thought when you think of selecting pieces for your basement, but bookcases are the perfect option to store accessories, books, and other things to clear the clutter.
Added features to make your basement comfortable and cozy include the right lighting and a little extra warmth. If you're lucky enough to have a fireplace in your basement, take advantage! A fireplace not only allows you to feel extra cozy but the mantle is often one of the best places for accessories and decor. Whether you do or don't have the luxury of a fireplace, candles can also create the perfect ambiance - just be safe if you light them!
6. Pick the perfect rug
Last but not least, pick the right sized rug for your area. This can make a huge difference in both how your room looks and functions. There's something about a rug under your toes that creates a comfortable space.
