7 Smart Ways To Prep Your Home For Winters

After putting away the Christmas tree, and enjoying the holidays with your friends, you might feel that your house is missing something. Also, this is the time when the chill of winter starts settling in your bones.

So, instead of leaving your humble abode into a blank space waiting for the next winter holidays, it’s time to add some winter charm to it. 

Let’s start preparing your home for winter coziness with these easy tips-

Bring Warmth To Your Room With Cozy Textures

Now that winter is here, look for rich and comfortable textures such as wool, velvet, knits, and mohair. Thick wool accents such as rugs, add warmth to space and are a treat for your feet in winter! 

Choose a woolen rug in a bold pattern to get an instant visual appeal. Not only for the floor, but you can also use wool for comfy, decorative pillows.

Velvet is equally great to add warmth and luxury to your space. Besides this, place a knit blanket at the end of your bed or the arm of your sofa. It makes an ideal setting to provide extra warmth in the chilly evenings. 

Sheepskin is another comfy textile. Fluffy, soft, and snugly, you can’t resist adding sheepskin texture (rugs, pillows, etc.) to your collection.

Warm Up Your Home With Faux Fur Accessories

Winter is the time when you care most about keeping yourself warm in the night. There are tons of faux fur options available to give an extra dose of warmth. If fur throw is too much, you can use a furry throw pillow to add soft texture to your living place. 

Layer In Pillow Panache

Pillow panache is a quick winter style update. Use playful patterns that stand out against the wooden flooring and a velvet sofa. Choose the patterns that match your existing decor so that you don’t have to make many decor arrangements. 

Prepare Your Dining Room For Winter Decor

When it comes to dressing the home for winters, dining rooms are often overlooked. However, you can make your dining area a focal point of attraction. One thing you can do is, draping sheepskin throws on the back of dining chairs. Your guests would love to linger in the warmth of your dining area for post-dinner conversation. Also, fur-on-the-seat works well for bar stools as well.

Incorporate Coziness In Your Guest Room

Create a ‘wow’ look for your guest room with elegant and dramatic centerpieces placed on your mantle, foyer, or center table. If you are planning to throw a winter get together, consider buying furniture rentals that match your style.

Further, if you have a good collection of seasonal items, such as glass vases, pumpkin sculptures, etc., use them to beautify your space for winter decor. Another great option is to fill a glass jar with LED lights to warm your guest room.

Focus On Your Hearth

As the temperature drops, focus on rearranging your furniture. Have a fireplace? Pull the furniture pieces towards the center of your room, facing them near the hearth. It will create a warm spot for winter get together. If you don’t have a fireplace in your home, plush fabric or upholstery adds coziness even without fire. 

Infuse Cheery Colors To Avoid The Winter Blues 

Switch up your home accents with bold shades associated with cold temperatures. Ochre, earthy color, or rust-colored shade will do the trick to make sure that your inner space doesn’t appear stark like space outside.

You can also introduce traditional fall colors such as burnt oranges, bronze shades, or deep maroon. To brighten up your decor, you can also use deep pink or rich purple shades. 

These are some of the easy ways to have the warmest space at the coolest time of the year. Choose any of these tips and get your home ready for winter!
