Tips for Cold Weather -
How to Winterize Home

You can easily transform your home into a warm winter haven with a few simple tips and products. Keep from getting chilly.

  • Paint the walls a warm, rich color such as pale gold.
  • Add copper and brass accents, like on drawer and cabinet pulls and handles.
  • Bring in some accent pieces that repeat the copper and gold tones.
  • Remove the bright white lights and use softer lights.
  • Add more textured fabrics, throws, even blankets.
  • Use more dandles, lamps and mirrors to reflect light and add a glowing color everywhere.
  • Use velvet slipcovers or chenille on your sofa to make it more inviting to curl up and enjoy a good book.
  • Turn your bed into a warm, cozy cocoon.
  • Use flannel sheets instead of cotton or silk.
  • If not allergic to them, use wool or cashmere blankets or down feather comforter.
  • Use a towel warmer in the cold mornings when you shower.
  • Choose between wall mounted or free-standing models for that "just-out-of-the-drier" feeling.
  • Area rugs will cover cold floors and add energy to the room.
  • If you're remodeling, install floor warming system between your sub-floor and flooring material. This generates radiant heat like an electric blanket.
  • Put a RugBuddy under your area rug. Plug the RugBuddy into wall outlet to heat up your area rug.
