When it’s cold out, there is no better place to be than in the comfort of your own home. However, after the summer months of playing outside, wide open windows and an uncluttered look, you might need to make a few changes to prepare to spend more time hibernating indoors.
Here are a few simple ideas that will make a big difference in keeping the cold out and maximising inside winter moments with your loved ones.
- Heat your space
It is important that your primary living space, i.e. family room or lounge, has sufficient heating. This will draw your family and friends to this space and ensure hours of quality time together. If your home doesn’t have a fireplace, invest in a wood burner or underfloor heating.
In the case of a fireplace or wood burner, make it the focal point of the room by re-arranging the furniture to ensure that everyone enjoys the warmth.
- Cosy throws
Make sure every sofa in your home has a luxurious throw or fluffy blanket. This will make movie moments or lazy reading times even more enjoyable. For a statement throw, shop the swirl faux fur throw or the textured cable knit throw for a more understated look.
- Lush carpets
A lush carpet, like this luxury shaggy carpet will add instant warmth and comfort to any space, especially tiled or wooden floors. Kids and pets will also love its fluffy softness – you might just find the whole family snuggling on the floor!
- Thick curtaining
On those frigid evenings, cold air easily makes its way inside through the ice cold glass of your windows. Keep the cold out with thick curtaining, or add additional blinds to your existing curtains. Opt for block out or lined curtains for optimal warmth. You will be surprised by the difference it makes.
- Sweet dreams
Few things are as luxurious as getting into a warm, toasty bed on a chilly night. Change your normal sheets to plush brushed cotton winter sheeting that will feel warm and soft against your skin. For pre-warmed luxury and warmth that will last the whole night, shop our electrical blankets.
With these easy pointers on how to make your home winter-ready, your space will soon be a cosy cocoon you won’t want to leave. Happy hibernating!
