Ways To Create A Warm Home This Winter

With winter’s arrival, we are all looking for ways to create more warmth in our homes. By making use of multiple textures and colours, and rearrangement of furniture, you’ll be sure to create an atmosphere of warmth and cosiness. Herewith three ideas you can implement in your home.

 

Bring your living room furniture closer

 

As many people spend a substantial amount of time in their living area, it’s one of the rooms in any house which should be upgraded first. A simple  way in which you can upgrade your living room in winter is by bringing your furniture closer together. To complement this move, look for a rug which will cover a larger  area.

 

In addition to rearranging your furniture, you should add a few stuffed scatter cushions to the couches. By doing this, you can quite easily create the warm and cosy feeling you’re after. A great addition to create tangible warmth within your living room is by installing a fireplace. With many energy efficient options available, you can create warm atmosphere for years to come! .

 

Upgrade your lighting

If you’re looking for a way in which you can create more warmth inside your dining area, consider upgrading your lighting.

 

Whether it’s chandeliers or down-lights, it should be upgraded in conjunction with the furniture that’ll be placed in the area. This’ll help with distributing the light evenly through the space and create new focal areas.

 

Another change you can make is to install curtains in your living area and bedroom. Keep your curtains open during the day to fully take advantage of the natural light and warmth streaming through the windows. Before the sun sets, be sure to draw your curtains as it acts as another layer of insulation to keep the heat in.

 

The layering of neutral colours in your bedroom

When upgrading the interior of your bedroom, this is the perfect time to incorporate different shades of neutral colours like beige, brown and grey. The same can be said for the textures of upholstery, linen, curtains, and rugs. By combining a variety of textures such as a sheepskin rug with a woollen comforter, not only will you be warm and cosy in your bed, but when you climb out of bed as well.

 

Whether you’ve got tiles or laminate flooring in your room, you can add warmth by adding a suede or velvet-like carpet or rug. You can apply the same principle to the headboard, whereby instead of having your headboard stopping halfway up your wall, you can extend this to the ceiling.
