Now that autumn has well and truly arrived, we’re all thinking of cosy evenings spent at home, snuggling up in one of our favourite chairs with a hot drink and a good book, and with that in mind there are lots of ways to ensure that your home is as warm and energy efficient as possible – here we offer a handy guide on how best to stay cosy this winter…
If you’d like to inject lots of warmth into your living room or conservatory without too much effort, go for a splash of autumn tones in your home furnishings and accessories. Shades of russet and gold will complement most existing colour schemes, and you can add these colours in your own style. Go for a cushion or two with golden tones for a subtle nod to the changing of the season, or add a large throw to your sofa or armchairs for a more dramatically warming effect.
To add a real sense of the new season, head outdoors and collect a selection of pine cones. These can be arranged as you see fit in your conservatory or living room, and add a natural touch of style. If you have wooden furniture or features in your living or relaxing area, you can create an autumnal glow by adding orange and yellow accessories such as cushions, lampshades and throws.
Why not try choosing a gold lampshade to get the ultimate autumn glimmer as you relax in the evenings? This can be a relatively inexpensive addition with maximum impact.
You can keep the heat in your home without having to spend a lot of money. Energy saving conservatory blinds can reduce heat loss and also contain high sound absorbing properties, making your conservatory a true haven and an ideal cosy space to relax. Heavy curtains are also a top choice for homeowners as they can trap heat and look decadently stylish at the same time. You can also conserve warmth by covering up wooden or laminated floors with rugs or mats that complement your décor. Also try using draught excluders to plug any gaps at your front door, and keep the cold from blowing through your letterbox with a little extra padding in brush form.
