Its time to talk ‘Snugs’

The name ‘snug’ is a small space in your home that is a small, cosy, and intimate area with lots of soft furnishings. The Snug provides a comfortable space to curl up in (preferably by a roaring fire). A snug should not be too large, you might say a ‘snug’ fit. It will usually be a separate room from the main living area, although in a smaller home or apartment, the living room can easily be made to feel as warm and welcoming.

Decorating ideas for a snug inlcude wall panelling and warm colours,  for maximum cosiness. These rooms are at their best in winter and if you don’t have room for a snug, why not carve out a reading nook from your living room – all you need is a comfortable armchair and a bookcase and/or small table – round is best.

Snugs are a place where you can switch off from the noise and mess of family life and sink into an oasis of calm – whether that’s a big luxurious sofa or chair with plump, sumptuous cushions to fall into where you can zone out in peace. Picture your snug as a space where any member of your household can read a book or watch TV and be in their own world.

Ultimately, if you are renovating or extending a house, including a snug can be a great way of encouraging family harmony and a focal point for relaxation and solitude. You can see some great examples in the article on the link below from House and Garden UK.
