Tips for Readying Your Home for the Cold Months Ahead

There’s nothing better than curling up in a warm blanket on a crisp autumn day. With falling leaves, colder temperatures and shorter days, it’s time to add some cozy accents to your home. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to create a warm space this fall!

Use Softer Textiles

Whether it’s a cable knit blanket, velvet curtains or a faux fur throw pillow, adding softer fabric touches to your space will create a warm, cozy atmosphere. These accessories can also be easily changed at the start of a new season, which means you can have an updated look with little effort or cost!

Accessorize With Warm Lighting

With the right lighting, you can make your home inviting even as the nights get longer. Instead of overhead lights, use floor lamps or table lamps with incandescent bulbs to add softer, more ambient light. Remember, lightbulbs come in a variety of shades. If you want to bring warmth to your space, opt for white or yellow light instead of bluer lights.

Bring Nature Indoors

Just because the trees are losing their leaves doesn’t mean that you have to give up on nature until spring. There are plenty of flowers that are in season in the fall to take your space up a notch. How about a bouquet sunflowers to brighten up your space? Or, try a nice arrangement of silk flowers that will last for years to come!

Prep for Weather

Between the leaves during fall and snow during winter, your entryway can get messy. Prepare for foot traffic by laying a stylish floor mat by your door to for guests to wipe their feet. Also consider adding a coat rack by the door for guests to leave their outerwear and a table in the entryway as a place to store keys. By shopping clearance, you can find these pieces at a fraction of the cost!

The colder seasons don’t have to be dark and gloomy! With these simple tips, you’ll have a cozy and inviting place for your indoor activities this fall and winter.
