With winter coming soon, you may be looking to change the décor in your home to coordinate with the season. You may want to bring in accents that exude warmth and coziness to balance out the frigid weather outside.
Here are some ideas to get your home ready for cold temperatures ahead:
- Focus on the fireplace – Try rearranging the furniture in your living room to face the fireplace, which is the center of home activities during winter. With your furniture oriented toward the fireplace, you will have an ideal gathering spot for winter entertaining. And even if you don’t have company over, you can enjoy brewing up a mug of coffee or hot cocoa and sitting in front of the warm fire.
- Add warm colors – Avoid the winter blues by dressing your home in cheery colors. A throw pillow in bold shades and a bright throw will instantly add luster during the dark days of winter.
- Adorn the windows – Keep your kitchen warm and merry for the holidays by adding boldly-colored window treatments, such as red curtains that complement the season. You can also add red rugs to complete the bright look of your kitchen. Whatever the weather brings, your décor can keep the inside of your home feeling bright and happy.
- Go for snow – Evoke the look of snow by bringing out your collection of winter white glassware and dishware. If you have dark furniture, the light colors will contrast nicely. To add sparkle, set out silver displays with vases and serving trays.
- Create a reading nook – Designate an area of your home as a cozy reading nook where you can wile away the time if the weather prevents you from going out. Arrange the nook next to a window and stock it with plenty of comfy pillows and cushions and a decorative throw.
- Upgrade your countertops – If your kitchen countertops look dingy and tired but you don’t have the money to replace them, update them with sophisticated Instant Granite products to add elegance and beauty to your home. The Instant Granite vinyl film can be applied easily to any smooth surface and closely resembles real marble or granite countertops.
A few flourishes can go a long way in making your home a revitalizing place to be—even in the dead of winter.
