Give Your Home An Authentic Cottage Feel

Cottage look and feel

We all want our homes to feel as homely as possible, especially now the nights are drawing in earlier and earlier.

For a typically English feel that brings all the cosiness to your home, go for a traditional cottage look and feel with a few simple touches. 

A cottage look and feel isn’t just for properties built in the 1700s. You can incorporate some of the charming aesthetic into a modern home too.

Maintain a cottage feel

Whether you are hoping to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere for hosting guests or just for a feeling of relaxation when you walk through the door, getting the feeling of warmth is key to capturing the cottage feel.

This can be achieved by snuggling up with knitted blankets, lighting a fire and investing in energy-efficient windows and doors to trap heat inside. 

Even if you don’t own a fire and you rely on central heating, your windows and doors will ensure the heat does not escape your home.

Not only will your home feel extra toasty, but you’ll be relieved by your energy bills declining, as your heating won’t have to work as hard.

Create a cottage look

Now you have a cottage feel, you can add some simple decor to give the impression of a quaint, English cottage.

Take inspiration from cottagecore, a trend that embraces rural life and seeks to romanticise simpler times gone by. You’ll find lots of creativity on Pinterest, Instagram and TikTok on how to introduce this aesthetically pleasing style to your home.

Cottagecore is all about mixing floral prints and vintage patterns and incorporating them on curtains and valances, wallpaper and classical knobs on drawers.

Not only should you ensure your windows and doors are performing well, they should fit in with the overall cottage look. Clearview’s Georgian and Heritage windows bring a traditional charm to properties and we can install them in a whole host of colours to brighten up your mood on the darkest of days.

Choose jugs rather than vases for fresh flowers dotted around your home.

Cottage style

The style may be reminiscent of a cottage in the 1700s, but your windows and doors shouldn’t be. 

Make sure your windows and doors reflect the 21st century and contact Clearview about our energy-efficient products that will keep your home feeling cosy and save you money in energy bills.
