5 must haves for a home that evokes hygge

Hygge is a Danish concept of a cozy and inviting home or space. It’s a great concept to embrace year round but is especially perfect in the winter when it’s cold and dreary outside. Here are 5 must haves for your hygge apartment to create the perfect space.

Twinkle lights

Ambiance is key when it comes to hygge, and if cozy is what you’re going for, you can’t go wrong with soft lighting from a string of affordable twinkle lights in your apartment. Place them around a doorframe, window, even on top of a mantel! They’re easy to find at major department stores like Home Depot, Canadian Tire and Walmart.

Big mugs

When we think ‘cozy night at home’, we think of curling up on the sofa with a giant mug of something warm and comforting in our hands. Ensure you’re well equipped to follow our lead by stocking up on some big mugs. Check out stores like IKEA for affordable options.

Faux fur sheepskin rug

It doesn’t get much cozier or more elegant than a faux fur sheepskin rug! It adds a rustic charm to your space and feels so comforting to the touch. Throw it on the end of your bed, on top of a bench or chair, or put it on the floor like a rug.

Chunky knit blanket

If you want to feel super cozy on the couch or in bed, purchase or make your own chunky knit blanket. It looks hip as heck and will keep you toasty warm and cozy all winter long. You can find great throw blankets at shops like Winners and HomeSense for low prices.

Fluffy bath mat

Bring hygge into your bathroom with a plush bath mat that feels great under your feet when you get out of the shower or brush your teeth on a cold winter’s day. Check out shops like Bed Bath and Beyond for great looking options.

We hope you consider adding these 5 hygge must-have items to your apartment.
