Everyone’s talking about creating hygge at home, which is an old Danish word for a sense of well-being and contentment. We show you 6 easy ways using laminates.

5 Hygge inspired looks you can create with laminates

Dec 2, 2017 9:00:00 AM.

The Danish word hygge (pronounced ‘hue-gah’) has created quite a stir in the interior design industry in the past few years, and while not everyone can pronounce it, what it represents resonates with all of us. It refers to that warm fuzzy feeling, a sense of well-being and contentment that comes with spending time with family and friends over good food, or curled up in bed under warm covers on a cold day. So how do you create hygge in your home? We show you five easy ways using laminates.

This bedroom is another example of a cosy, snuggly space, but one created with wintry hues. The colour scheme might be cooler, but it’s the layering of natural materials such as the wood-look laminate, the rattan table, and furry cushions and blanket that create the hygge magic.

Think of what makes you feel warm and cosy – and textures from furs and other natural materials come to mind. Similarly, for a home to have hygge, inject texture in the form of furry throws or rugs. Remember not to overdo it, a small dose will go a long way.

Besides adding items made of natural materials to a space to create hygge, don’t forget to include nature as well! Greenery is known to relax people, and who doesn’t love a vase of beautiful blooms? Plants and flowers add life and just the right pop of colour to an understated, neutral-coloured space such as the home above by Elpis Interior Design.

While most of us don’t have large homes, we can still create cosy nooks for some ‘me’ time within our limited space. The ball chair swing in this double-volume apartment by Prozfile does just that. For something more ‘grounded’, put together a reading corner with a really comfortable armchair and footstool, or a deep-pile rug you can snuggle your toes in while you read or relax.

A sense of serenity and calmness in a space comes with having a harmonious colour palette. As you’re designing or accessorising your space, keep in mind the final impression you want to make (i.e. a sense of hygge) and edit out anything that doesn’t fit the final vision.
