5 Valentine’s Day Love Nest Ideas For Couples Moving In Together

Published: 14/02/2024

As a couple, one of the most exciting times in your relationship is when you take the big step of moving in together. The thrill of having a place of your own is hard to beat, and what better time of year to take the plunge than on Valentine’s Day? If you’re making your own little love nest this February 14th, here are five lovely ideas for couples moving in together.

1. Celebrate Your Relationship

If you’re moving into your first home together, one of the easiest ways to make the place your own is to add photos, mementoes, and other meaningful decorations that celebrate your relationship. This is something you can do whether you’re now a homeowner of a property in Colliers Wood or whether you’re renting in Colliers Wood from a landlord. Let an image of the two of you together take pride of place in your hallway, living room, or bedroom, and show the world how much you love each other by adorning your love nest with symbols and signs of your romance.

2. Fit A Double Shower Or Bath

If you’re buying your first property in Colliers Wood and you have enough bathroom space, why not turn the romance up a notch by investing in either a double bath or double shower? It's the perfect bathroom solution for two and will not only foster a greater intimacy between you both, but can also make your mornings more efficient too - and potentially steamy!

3. Create A Nook For Two

When you’re furnishing your new home in Colliers Wood, take the time to think about a special space where the two of you can snuggle up together, away from distractions like the television. A window seat with a garden view, a cosy corner of your living space, or a comfy alcove with beanbags and cushions will give you a romantic spot where you can just spend time in each other’s company, whether you’re chatting about your day or reading!

4. Design A Beautiful Boudoir

Of course, for anyone who is loved-up and looking for ideas for couples moving in together, the bedroom is the heart of their home. Making your space both functional, comfortable and romantic is the order of the day, and since this is such an important space, it’s essential to take the time to really plan out your design. Think carefully about accessories too. Add candles or diffusers to your rooms to make your home smell better! Your colour scheme can also have a significant impact on the ambience of your room, so choose wisely. When it comes to your bed itself, it’s definitely worthwhile choosing high-quality bedding. A luxurious feel can really put the finishing touch to this all-important space.

5. Consider Your Lighting

Lighting is vital when it comes to setting the mood, and if you’re establishing your love nest, it’s essential for that mood to be romantic! While bright lights may be ideal for practical spaces like the kitchen, you can certainly tone it down in the bedroom and living spaces. Overhead lighting is typically far too harsh for those rooms, so consider using table and floor lamps for atmospheric ambient lighting. Adjustable light sconces are an excellent choice for over the bed, giving you perfect lighting control, while a few strategically placed fairy lights around the headboard can work wonders to get a Valentine’s mood going!
