Disclosure - This is a collaborative post 

Do you feel as though your home isn’t as cosy as it could be? Maybe you want to make a positive change but just have no idea where to begin. Either way, this guide will detail some of the top changes you can make, so you can make sure that you are not wasting any time or money on your property.

Update your Bedding

One of the biggest changes you can make is updating your bedding. Crisp cotton and linen are all great for summer but in winter, flannel is the way to go. Trade your crisp sheets in for ones that are able to hold the warmth in. Jersey is another great option here. While you are at it, it could be worth trying to put a blanket or a quilt over the top of your bed so you have something for when the nights get cold. This is a great way for you to make sure that you are always putting yourself first, and that your bedroom is as warm and cosy as it should be. If you want your pet to have somewhere as comfortable as you do, then now is the best time for you to look into Pet Rebellion personalised dog beds.

Snuggly Throw Pillows

If you don’t have any yet, then now is the time for you to add some snuggly throw pillows to your sofa. Add a few of them and then add some normal fabric ones. If you can do this then you will soon find that you can achieve a nice balance and this can work in your favour overall. Don’t be afraid to explore options such as woolly knit, rich velvet or anything else comforting. If you can do this then you will soon find that it is easier for you to cosy up your space. 

Add Some Warmth

Flat-weave rugs are ideal when it’s warm outside but when the weather grows colder, it’s wise for you to have some smaller rugs dotted around. Try to layer them in strategic positions and also make sure that you put some blankets over the reading chair. Little things like this can make a major difference to your home and you would be surprised at how much it could help your home to feel more like yours.

Soft Lighting

When the nights draw colder, it can be tempting for you to go to bed. One way for you to avoid this would be for you to get some soft lighting installed. The great thing about this is that you can add some warm-toned LEDs and candle-light bulbs. By doing this, you can then make sure that your lighting is never too harsh, and that you always feel like you can stay up if you want to.

Warm-up Window Treatments

If you have linen curtains or sheer curtains then why not trade them out for some nice velvet drapes? When you do this you will soon find that you can take advantage of a nice thermal lining. Besides making your space look and feel warm, you may find that it ends up stopping any cold air from leaking through the windows. If you have single-glazing or if you have windows that let a lot of heat out then improvements like this can save you money on your energy bill too, so keep that in mind.

Rethink your Sofa Cover

If you have a couch that has a cover then why not buy a slipcover? The great thing about doing this is that it makes it way cosier for the colder months. If you want to help yourself here then one thing you can do is choose a deep jewel colour and then a soft fabric. This is a great way for you to add a bit of personality to your space and you would be surprised at what a difference it could make to your space.

Put Memories on Display

Putting memories on display won’t warm up your home but it will help to remind you about what your home should be. A place where you feel safe and secure, surrounded by love. Put up family photos and make sure that you always focus on things that make you happy. Snuggle up with a warm drink and have a have your customised coasters to hand with photo's of the ones you love. If you can do this then you will see a huge improvement in the way that you feel. You will also find that it is easier for you to make your home feel warmer on those cold nights as well,  so make sure that you keep that in mind.
