6 Tips To Keep Your Home Cosy This Winter

Author: Jamie Quinn
As the crisp winter air settles in, keeping your home warm and inviting becomes a top priority. But before you crank up the thermostat and watch your energy bills soar, consider some simple and effective strategies that can make a big difference.

Here are a few ways to keep your home cosy without breaking the bank:

Thermal Curtains

Thermal Curtains

These specially designed curtains act as an extra layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your home and preventing drafts from chilling the space. For maximum effectiveness, opt for thick, heavyweight fabrics with a thermal lining. 

Cheap hack: Fleece sheets hung on the backs of your curtains provide the same result!

Draught Stoppers

Draught Stopper

Don't underestimate the power of a good draught stopper!  These handy tools come in various forms, from fabric rolls to under-door seals, and they effectively block unwanted drafts sneaking in through gaps around doors and windows.

Cheap hack: No need to go out and buy special draught stoppers; rolled up towels work just fine.

Window Insulation

While replacing windows can be a significant investment, there are temporary solutions that can improve insulation during winter. Consider applying window insulation film to existing windows. This creates an additional air barrier, reducing heat loss and keeping your home warmer.

Cheap hack: Try the bubble wrap trick! 

Floor Rugs

Cold floors are an unwelcome surprise in winter. Invest in cosy area rugs for frequently used areas like living rooms and bedrooms. Not only do they add a touch of comfort and style, but rugs also provide insulation by adding an extra layer between your feet and the cold floor.

Natural Fibre Blankets

natural blankets

When it comes to creating a cosy atmosphere, there's nothing quite like snuggling up with a warm blanket. Go for natural fibres like wool or cashmere, which are known for their warmth and breathability. These blankets not only trap heat but also allow your skin to breathe, preventing overheating and sweating.

Electric Blankets

Electric Blanket

For an extra boost of warmth, consider an electric blanket. These provide targeted heating, allowing you to warm up specific areas like your bed or sofa without having to heat the entire room. This can be a great energy-saving option, costing as little as $10 over winter if used every night.
