When the weather starts to get cold and chilly outside, you will surely want to make your sweet home cozy and warm. There are many different ways you can achieve that, all of which can add a more snug mood to your house. Here are 5 ideas on how to cozy up your home for winter.
Use some warm rugs
Hard surfaces get really cold during the winter period. Materials, like marble, cement and granite can really make your feet feel chilled and your room temperature fall several degrees down. Rugs can really help you deal with this situation effectively. Choosing the ideal wool rug does not only provide warmth to your place, but it also, adds the charm and elegance your floor needs during the winter. Wool rugs come in many shapes, colors and sizes to cover your personal tastes. Depending on the style of your home, you could choose a rug that is traditional, modern or even a bit more alternative.
Stoke a warm fire
Those of you who have a fireplace in their home are really lucky. Keep all the necessary fire tools and supplies handy, so that you can easily build up a fire whenever you are in need of it. During the winter, take special care of your mantel, as well. Add a drape to your mantel and decorate it with winter accessories, like candles, pictures or other favorite pieces of art. During the most cold nights, you could bring your dinner table near the fireplace and have a family meal near the warm fire.
Add blankets and pillows
Snuggling in a bundle of your favourite blankets is the perfect solution to face the most cold winter days. Replace your bed’s light quilt with a heavier one and add some kind of bed toppers to add an extra layer of comfort to your mattress. You could also, have a pack of blankets available near your sofa in the living room to use them when you want to relax with a book or enjoy a movie on TV. Prefer blankets with warm fabrics, like faux fur, cashmere, wool or fleece.
Use earthy elements
While summer requires vibrant colors and bright floras, the winter period gives you the chance to add a more earthy touch to your home environment. Elegant wood pieces, like door hangers, wall crafts and side tables can really add a more homey atmosphere to your house. Colours, like cocoa and warm grey can play a vital role in your house’s winter decoration.
Focus on mugs and cups
Hot chocolate, your favourite cup of coffee and a cup of tea or peppermint can really make you feel homey and cozy during the cold winter period. Instead of putting your favourite winter mugs into the cupboard, prefer to display them on the dining table or on your kitchen counterpiece or even on your cabinet. Mugs and cups are an indivisible part of every winter decorated house.
Making your sweet home feel cozier and warmer during the winter period can really light up your mood and make you feel more relaxed and happy. Achieving this is not that difficult. It requires original ideas, a pleasant mood and a little effort!
