As the cold weather begins to settle in for its six months of rule, we’re all going to be spending a lot more time bundled up inside our home. Those social outings and days spent exploring will have to wait until spring has returned; for now, it’s all about existing inside, watching films, doing nothing other than enjoying the time spent away from the chill. But how do you make this idea sound inviting? By making sure your home is a cozy winter retreat! Here’s how you do it.

Load up on Blankets and Throws

You’ve spent all day battling the cold, and the only thing you’re looking forward to is binge-watching Netflix shows in comfort. You’ll watch a comfortable couch (you’re not going anywhere for a while!), a steaming hot cup of tea, and then the final piece of the jigsaw: plenty of blankets and throws that’ll provide that extra level of warmth when the cold air sets in. There’s nothing better than a new, thick blanket or throw, so make sure you have plenty nearby.

Bring the Heat

You want to keep warm during the winter, but coziness isn’t just about the temperature: it’s about the look and feel of the home, too. As such, you want to add something that’ll make sure you’re kept nice and toasty, but which also looks like you’ve stepped into the coziest version of the season. If you haven’t yet got a gas log heater in your living room, look at having one installed by Precision Electrical & Plumbing. It’ll give your house the kind of ambiance that makes winter so special.

Sensory Joys

You can add even more ambiance to your home by loading up on all those small features that feed the senses. Specifically, look at adding candles throughout your home – especially in the rooms you’ll be in often, such as your living room and dining area. There are also some delicious smelling scents you can add, which will release all those season-defining smells throughout your home.

Create a Reading Cove

OK, we can’t deny that the idea of spending the season wrapped up in front of the television sounds pretty appealing. However, remember that winter is your opportunity to do more; you’re going to be inside most of the time, so you may as well make the most of it! Look at creating a reading nook in your house. They’re inviting, comfortable, and you’ll learn a thing or two when you’re there, too.

Natural Elements

You won’t be able to enjoy the great outdoors as much you could during spring and summer, but that doesn’t mean you need to forget the natural world entirely. Adding those seasonal pine cones, dry leaves, and spices throughout your home is a way to add some character to your home and bring the outdoors inside when it’s too chilly to leave the front door.

Your home has the potential to be an awesome refuge from the chill. Take our advice above, and you’ll have a perfect winter wonderland to see out the season!
