How To Love Your Home During Winter

There isn’t just one version of your home. It changes throughout the year. There’s a different vibe and feel to your property during spring and summer than there is during autumn and winter. Alas, only one of these incarnations is easy to love - the warmer months version. And it’s not hard to see why: the sun is streaming through the windows, it’s lovely. When it comes to the colder months, you’ll need to work a little harder to fall in love with your home. Below, I  take a look at a few actions that’ll push you in this direction. 

Cosy decorations

If you’re going to love your home during winter, then you need to embrace the season, not fight it. One way to do this is to cosy up your property by adding decorations and the right colours to your rooms. In the spring and summer, you might have light coloured pillow covers and the like; in winter, it’s best to switch them out for darker options, such as deep browns, golds and silvers. You can also add seasonal decorations such as pine cones and candles.

Nights at home

If you’re going to love your home during winter, then it’s important that you’re taking steps to make it as fun as possible. When it’s freezing outside, and the wind is blowing, you won’t want to brave the outdoors -- you’ll want to stay right where you are. To ensure that you’ve no qualms with this plan of action, it’s recommended that you fit out your living room with a modern entertainment system and comfortable seating. You’ll be able to spend many cosy nights at home, watching movies as a family. It’s not about riding out the colder weather -- it’s about making your home as enjoyable as possible, so you don’t care if spring ever returns!

Bring the warmth

Of course, people’s biggest gripe when it comes to winter is the cold. And sure, though we can handle a little chill, it’s not enjoyable -- and especially so when it’s in the home. We’ll positively hate our properties if we’re forever cold while we’re there! So do something about it. If you want to make your home extra cosy and comfortable, then look at getting a wood fireplace. They can add a lot to your home and don’t have to be messy, providing you use an alternative to firewood. There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a book as a roaring fire keeps you warm.

Buy a cookbook

You’re not going to be spending as much time outside of your home during winter, so find a fun activity to keep you entertained. One of the best hobbies to pick up is cooking or baking. The process can heat the home, for starters, and also make it smell delicious -- and you get to enjoy your creations once they’re ready to eat, too.

Take these tips above, add some flowers every once in a while, and you’ll be able to sink into all the pleasures of winter.
