Winterize Your Home Decor & Stay Warm

Winter is here. And sometimes winter is harsh and unforgiving. Winter can leave your home cold and drafty,  every bit of warm air escaping as quickly as it can. But there are ways to keep your electric bills low and still have a comfortable, warm home. And the best part is that you have options. The first step is to cover your windows.

Use Drapery

When you hear the word “drapery,” you might think of your grandmother’s house, but drapes have been modernized to include interesting and fashionable fabrics and patterns, making them a great, customized fit for every home. With drapes, you can:

  •  Keep the warmth in and block the cold out.
  •  Update your room instantly and create a whole new look with one simple change, with 100s of color, pattern, and fabric options.
  • Add liners for your needs, like blackout and privacy liners. This will add even more insulation to your windows.

Add Honeycomb or Solar Shades

Honeycombs and solar shades provide added insulation for your windows, but using these shades doesn’t mean you have to spend your winter in darkness. With these shades, you can:

  • Maintain a comfortable home temperature and block out harmful UV rays.
  •  Choose a blackout shade option for added privacy and improved insulation.
  • Filter and diffuse the bright sunlight to create a warm, inviting glow with light filtering shades.
  • Reduce glare, making it perfect for viewing computer and television screens.

Combining both the shades and the drapes can give your home the barrier it needs from the cold.

Layer Bedding

‘Tis the season for warmer bedding. Either swap out your bedding for warmer, cozier items, or learn to layer your bedding to keep the look you want while staying warm these next few months. If this still isn’t keeping you warm, it’s either time to upgrade your bedding or simply use more layers. Plus, adding bedding layers will give your room a chic look, so what’s to lose?

Add Rugs

If you don’t already have rugs or carpet on your floor, add a few rugs. If you already have rugs that are a bit thin, consider upgrading to thicker, fuller rugs just for the winter. Or you can even layer rugs to create a unique look with loads of winter-related benefits. Not only will it keep your feet warm this winter, but it can keep the warmth in your house, right where it belongs.

Winterizing your home decor is easy. All it takes is a few changes and updates, and you’re looking at a toasty and comfortable winter season inside your home.
