As the colder weather creeps in people are starting to update their winter wardrobes to ensure not only do they feel warm, but look good too; so why don’t they do the same with their houses?

There are plenty of ways that you could update our home to get it ready for the winter, rather than blasting that central heating or placing those unattractive halogen heaters around the house, you could creatively prepare your home for winter, so not only do you look stylish, but so does your home.

1-Contemporary Stoves

Sit By The Fire
Wood burning stoves are a great alternative to an open fire as they are far more efficient and much safer. They are also a great alternative to leaving your central heating system on if you will only be using one room, so you don’t have to waste money heating the whole house.

Stoves are an incredibly stylish piece of furniture to add to your home, whether you are looking for a traditional piece or a more modern stove, they are a great way to add character to the place.

Feel The Softness Under Your Feet
For many homes, wooden flooring is a popular choice, and although they look extremely stylish already, during the cold winter months, the cold floors can feel a little nippy on your feet. By placing a few well positioned rugs in your home, you can instantly update the look of it, as well as solving the problem of cold floors. They can add colour, warmth and extra layer of insulation to stop the heat seeping out.

Create A Cosy Atmosphere
You may not think that candles give off a lot of heat but you’d be surprised at the difference they can make. Now, don’t be expecting the heat you may receive from a roaring fire, but a few well-placed candles can provide a subtle warmth that can add to a room’s temperature. Candles create a warm glow that is extremely inviting, tricking you into feeling toastier than you actually are.

After Shower Solutions
The worst thing about having a nice hot shower in winter in getting out of it, so why not treat yourself to a fashionable towel rail? There is nothing better than a fresh and warm towel after you have come out of a hot and relaxing shower. If you have a look around any bathroom specialist companies, you will find a number of chic and modern towel rail designs to choose from, to instantly update your bathroom without the hassle of a full renovation.

Draw The Curtains
You should consider updating some of your soft furnishings for the approaching winter weather, such as your curtains. Not only could they add personality to your home, they could keep out the cold and stop the warm air from escaping; they are a fantastic insulator and a great way to keep your home warm without compromising on style.

Whether you go bold and bright or understated and chic the choice is yours; look at your existing interior and accessories to see what would best complement the space.

By following these top tips you can ensure that your home is ready for the winter, making the most out of its stylish and stunning new accessories. Go on give your home that bit of TLC with a winter makeover.
