How to make your house cosy for winter 1

With less than one week until winter officially arrives, most people will be starting to prepare themselves for the bracing cold conditions that are likely to hit the United Kingdom. Whether that means gritting their driveways or simply wearing an extra layer of clothing, British people are extremely thorough when it comes to preparing themselves against the cold and many will also take extreme lengths to completely adapt their houses to ensure maximum comfort away from the freezing weather outside. Here are a few ways how you can make your home incredibly cosy during the winter period.

Put Christmas decorations up

There’s nothing more warm and welcoming than Christmas decorations. With less than one month until the big day, it’s now acceptable to get the tree out of the loft and stick tinsel all around the ornaments. Christmas decorations add a positive, happy feel to the family home and can certainly improve your mood after spending time out in the horrible British winter weather. Whether you simply put up the tree or place baubles and other items around the house, these can cheer you up after a long day at work and you will be overjoyed at how excited young children get at the sign of Christmas decorations around the family home.

Invest in a new bed

Candles are yet another way to introduce heat and cosiness to the family home. While we wouldn’t recommend placing these in the vicinity of younger children, they help to create a nice ambience in family areas such as the living room and dining area. The natural smell of these candles can boost the mood and atmosphere in your house and they are an absolute must if you want to guarantee total cosiness for you and your family.

    I love candles at winter time they make thing extra cosy. I’m on the search for a lovely scented one so it smells Christmassy, although I find some of the big brands like Yankee really overpowering.
