As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, we find ourselves starting to spend more time indoors. It’s that time of year when we pull out the sweaters, knit socks, and cozy blankets. 


Being cozy is a wonderful and comforting feeling — and it’s not just reserved for the duvet blankets on your bed. Making your home cozy is easier to do than you may think. 


Here are our top three suggestions on how you can make your living room cozy:


How To Make Your Living Room Cozy


(LeatherCraft Tottenham Sectional)


Let’s be honest, at the end of a long day, it’s hard to beat curling up on your favourite sofa and relaxing with a good book or binge-watching the latest Netflix show. One of the coziest options for curling up is a leather or microfibre sofa or sectional.


1. Add A Leather or Microfibre Sectional or Sofa

Leather is a comfortable, natural fabric that is warm, flexible, and cozy — and, as leather wears, it softens and gets supple for even greater coziness. 


LeatherCraft makes beautifully finished leather sofas and sectionals. Made in Canada with Italian leather and hardwood frames, their sofas are built to last and will look fantastic in any home. The Tottenham sectional (pictured above) is custom built and is available in a variety of options including sofa, sofa bed, ottoman, chaise, and loveseat.


(Decor-Rest’s 2135 sofa)


Decor-Rest is another company that designs beautifully crafted furniture, and sofas that are both stylish and cozy. Choose from a wide variety of fabrics and leathers to match your style.


Regardless of whether you select a sectional, sofa, or loveseat, complete your look by tossing a cozy throw blanket over the arm — voila, instant coziness!


2. Add An Area Rug


(Kalora Maroq Area Rug)


Nothing beats the soft, plush feel of stepping onto a cushy rug; the way the fibres wrap around your feet, the cushioning comfort of the surface, and the warmth it provides. An area rug is an essential component in any room that you are aiming to make more cozy.


Shag rugs were popular in the 70s and their popularity has increased over the last few years as homeowners seek more comfort in their homes. Available in a wide variety of colours, patterns, and sizes, shag area rugs are the perfect addition to your living room, bedroom, guest room, office, playroom, or basement.


Kalora rugs offer a huge selection of area rugs in a range of styles — and if shag isn’t your thing, you will find lots of other fabrics to choose from.

3. Add A Fireplace


(Dimplex Fireplace)


Last, but certainly not least, add a fireplace to your home for the ultimate in cozy. 


Whether it’s placed in front of the sofa in your living room, warming up your basement, or even next to the tub in your bathroom (for the perfect spa experience), a fireplace will instantly boost your cozy factor.


Dimplex produces a wide range of electric fireplaces, including:

  • Media consoles with mantel and firebox
  • Mantels with firebox
  • Wall-mounts
  • Inserts
  • Linear fireplaces

(Dimplex Arlo Fireplace)


A gorgeous focal point for any space, a fireplace will create dancing patterns of light, warm up your room, and elevate your living room’s coziness.
