When cold weather settles around your home, keeping the inside warm and cozy becomes a top priority. Thankfully, no matter the temperature outside, it is not too difficult to make your interior space the perfect place to wait out the winter. First, examine the insulation. Caulking small cracks and gaps can drastically increase the efficiency of a homes heating system. Weatherstripping and exchanging curtain sheers for heavy drapes also does wonders.
Beyond basic decor, lighting is important for creating a desirable atmosphere. Cold weather typically brings shorter daylight hours. Lack of natural light causes a variety of strains, so prevent problems with accent lighting. Kerosene and oil lamps, spicy scented candles, and fireplaces are ideal for creating ambience and improving a room.
