Most people find themselves spending more time indoors during winter. They seek the warmth that their home provides. Have you considered how you can create a warm, cozy environment in your home in a variety of ways?
When you transition your home from season to season, it is important to remember that the appearance of the room is only one element that creates the seasonal atmosphere you desire within your home. The winter time warmth you desire is both a physical and emotional. You can satisfy both of those desires by adding certain accessories to your home.
Creating a snuggly environment can also help our mental health. Many of us naturally feel sad in the winter, we miss the sunlight and the positive effect it has on us. Therefore during the winter we need to make sure that we are taking care of ourselves. Self care is so very important and many of us are givers and we need to remember to give to ourselves aswell. Of course, if the negative or unhappy feelings persist it can be worthwhile to have some online counseling from a site like Betterhelp to get to the cause of the unhappiness and then it can be resolved, allowing you to move on.
To physically warm your home, you will want to be sure your house is well insulated. Selecting window treatments that assist with insulating your home will save you money both in winter and summer. There are some gorgeous, energy saving window treatment options so you do not have to sacrifice beauty and style to keep your home warm.
Adding items to your room décor such as attractive throws, handmade quilts, and decorative blankets adds visual warmth to a room. It also assures that you have something close by to snuggle up in while watching television or reading on the sofa. Certain textures add a warming touch to a room. Velour, velvet, shag, or fuzzy pillows are good choices for wintertime accessories. An electric or gel fuel fireplace is an excellent way to add physical warmth and visual beauty to a room. Sitting by a warm, flickering fire is also emotionally soothing.
Candles are an important accessory to add to your home during the winter months. Aromatic candles that coincide with winter time comfort foods such as cookies and apple pie are good choices. Cinnamon, spice, and evergreen scents are good choices of aromas for wintertime.
Winter days are often dreary and gray. Adding some soothing or cheerful colors to your home will make it a more uplifting place to retreat to during the winter. You can add color and warmth to a room with accent rugs. Place a soft, plush rug beside of your bed to make your first step in the morning more pleasant. Add a large shag rug and some floor pillows to the family room. Everyone can gather on the warm rug to enjoy hot cocoa, popcorn, movies, and games. Any color of material would suffice but choosing something like a plush or shag, chocolate or espresso colored rug would enhance the emotional and visual feeling of warmth.
