Awesome Tips For Creating The Perfect Snug

Awesome Tips For Creating The Perfect Snug

When you have a spare room in your home, it can sometimes be hard to know what to do with it. This is especially true if it’s a small space that isn’t large enough to use as a guest bedroom or office. Obviously, you don’t want to waste the room, but you just don’t know what to do with it.

How about transforming it into a snug? This is the perfect place for relaxing and curling up in with a good book or a nice soothing cup of tea. In case you are unsure what a snug is, here’s a little explanation. A snug is like a mini living room that’s super comfortable and cozy, and free of distractions like the television.

To design the most beautiful snug, here are some tips to take note of:

Incorporate an open fire

There’s nothing cozier than an open fire, so incorporating one into your snug is an amazing idea. If there is already a fireplace there, this shouldn’t be too difficult. However, if there isn’t, adding a fire to the room will be a more complicated (and expensive) job.

Investing in a fake fire is a fantastic way to get around the cost and complications of adding an open fire to your snug. Many fake fires look incredibly realistic, so can be an excellent alternative to the real thing. They add warmth to the room, as well as extra style.

Make the seating comfortable

A snug should be a place that’s nice and comfortable, so it’s important to invest in the plushest seating. This could be anything from a luxurious corner sofa to a few floor cushions. What you choose to use, will depend on your budget and the size of the space.

If the room is too small to fit a sofa in, but you want something more stylish than floor cushions, consider investing in a couple of beanbags. For relaxing in, beanbags are fantastic, as they are so soft and comfortable. There are various beanbags on the market - the Sumo Sac is one option, [1]so whatever your needs, there should be a design that's perfect.

Use a bookshelf to add style

One of the main uses of snugs is for reading, so why not incorporate that into the design, by adding a bookshelf? Instead of adding a basic shelf, consider making the bookshelf the focal point of the room.

This is much easier than you would think, all you have to do is find a way to make the bookshelf stand out. This could be the style, color or size of it - an oversized bookshelf can look fantastic in a snug.

Add prints, patterns and textures with accessories

To add a little extra something to the space, incorporate various prints, patterns, and textures. Invest in snuggly cushions and throws in different prints, and mix and match them. To prevent the designs clashing, stick to one color scheme. To add texture to the room, as well as comfort, invest in a faux fur rug and throw. Faux fur is in this season, so not only will your snug be cozy, but also stylish.

Don’t forget to dot a couple of pieces of wall art around the room - adding wall art adds style. Pick the pieces that you use carefully, and ensure that they won’t clash with the room or one another.

If you have a spare room, creating a snug is the perfect option. Make the space as comfortable and cozy as possible, by adding beautiful seating, blankets, and cushions.
