Winter is one of the best times of year to give your home a revamp. We all want to feel snug as a bug during the winter, so use these tips as inspiration to get started!
Keep The Winter Blues At Bay
You don’t want to make your home dark and cold to reflect the winter weather outside. That’s only going to make you feel worse! How about giving your home a splash of bright color to keep those winter blues at bay? You don’t have to make it summery. Just choose a bright color you really love and sprinkle it around. A bright color against a neutral base will work really well and give your home way more personality. You could even use a couple if you’re brave enough. Use a color wheel to help you decide on your scheme before buying anything, though!
Layer Things Up
Layering things up will make your home feel far more cozy. You can layer up things like your pillows, bed linen, throws, and even your carpets! The more texture you have, the more warm and welcoming your home will look. It’ll also add interest, so bear that in mind. If you’re not sure how to do this, you can look online for helpful tutorials.
Add A Cool Carpet
Most homes these days have wooden or laminate floors. However, they don’t usually work wonders for keeping the heat in or making the home winter friendly. You might have heard a few people say, ‘I found my carpet online’, but how do you know if it’s right for you this way? Many online carpet companies will be happy to help you if you enquire with them, and you could find your dream carpet.
Warm Up Your Windows
Consider warming up your windows with curtains. Curtains are great for insulating the home and making it just feel warmer thanks to the look of them. You could go for really long, heavy curtains if you’re in a particularly cold area. You can even have both curtains and blinds together, so you don’t need to worry about getting rid of blinds if you have them already.
Add More Mirrors
As there’s so little natural daylight in the winter, consider adding more mirrors to your home. The mirrors will reflect light and make your home feel brighter and larger. If you have a small home that you’d like to expand, this is a great tip for any time of the year. Some people even like to make small bathrooms feel larger by making one whole wall a mirror.
Add A Bookcase
A bookcase is perfect for winter. What could be better than curling up in the warm with a good book? Fill your bookcase with great looking books, and even place a comfortable chair nearby to create your very own reading nook.
