1. Find a quiet spot

The first step involves choosing a tranquil spot in your house, preferably one with little to no distractions, unless you want your safe haven to be in the same room as your TV. How about turning your basement into a comfy space where you spend quiet time away from the noise upstairs? You could also transform a boring corner into a well-designed reading nook. It's all up to you, but know that any room can benefit from a cozy touch.

2. Add comfortable seating

Now that you've chosen a location for your comforting refuge, it's time to set the mood with a comfy chair to sink into. A good chair will help relax your body and serve as a stylish focal point in the setting.

There are a couple of comfy chairs you can choose from, such as a recliner for different sitting positions, a rocking chair for deep relaxation, or a chaise lounge for comfortably stretching out on. Moreover, a small loveseat is also a great option if you want to get cozy with your loved one. Make sure to consider how much space you have for your new accent piece. You wouldn't want to invest in a pricey seating only to have it look too out of place in your restful spot.

3. Don't overlook the must-have elements

A relaxing spot can't be considered as relaxing if it's left without cozy details and extras! We're talking about lighting, a soft rug, colorful throw pillows, and whatnot. Here's where you can let your creativity run wild!

Natural light is always better but that doesn't mean you shouldn't add any lights at all. Lamps can actually help create an intimate space that feels calming and inviting. So, whether you plan on doing a lot of reading or not, a timeless floor lamp or an aesthetically pleasing table lamp on a small side table is a must-have. Also, you can't forget about including a small table! Where else would you put your cup of coffee? Moreover, a textured rug adds more character to the space while the pillows and blankets bring unbeatable warmth and beauty to the setting. If you've still got space to spare, fill it up with a gorgeous pouf to effortlessly tie the room together.

4. Complete the space with final details

For some, a calm space equals a corner full of their favorite books. If you're a bookworm and love to wind down with a good book, consider investing in a small bookcase for your new favorite go-to place.
