Winter is certainly here, with the nights drawing in and falling temperatures. Now is the time to get your home as cosy as possible, so when the icy-cold nights arrive, you’ll be prepared.
Our homes can contribute to our mental health, and a cosy home is thought to help improve one’s mental health. Having a cosy home is important during the winter months, as it’ll help you to feel warm, relaxed and safe, and there are things you can do to help make your home cosy this winter.
Something which can make a room feel less cosy is clutter. If your room is cluttered, it just won’t have the same cosy vibe, so it’s a good idea to have a declutter session heading into winter, and rethink your home storage options.
You could opt for Currie Easy self storage, and put items into storage which you don’t need lying around the home right now, or declutter with a view to donate to charities, or even sell on apps like Depop, Vinted or eBay. Less is most definitely more when it comes to objects within the home, and it’ll help with giving your home a lovely cosy vibe.
Does your home currently have insulation? I have cavity wall insulation in my home, and it did make a big difference compared to how the house felt before having it installed. Insulation is extremely useful when it comes to regulating temperature, due to its ability to control air flow between a heated area and a cold area, and it’s something that’ll improve the cosiness of your entire home, and not just a single room.
If you rent your home, there’s not a lot you can do structurally to improve the warmth of your home, but that’s where a portable radiator comes in. You can use one in almost any room, and because they’re portable, you can decide where they are used within the room. It’ll give instant warmth to a room, and will give you those cosy vibes.
I’ve got a lot of wooden floorboards in my house, and they definitely don’t give a cosy aesthetic. Using rugs can really help with giving warmth to the room, and they help to reduce any echo you may be experiencing too.
You can also add warmth and cosiness to a room with soft furnishings. Think super soft blankets, throws and cosy cushions. They’re perfect for getting snuggled up in at night, especially with your portable radiator, and combined, they’ll really help to give you a cosy home this winter.
