The chill of winter has arrived, and you may be on the search for ways to make your condo feel cozy and inviting this holiday season. If you’d like inspiration for preparing your home for the winter season, consider the tips we share here. These simple changes are easy to implement, and they’re especially well-suited for condo living.
Switch Up the Lighting
During warmer months and longer days, you may have used standard bright lighting or opened the windows for sunshine to filter through. To cope with fewer hours of daylight during the fall and winter, consider making the switch to a softer glow. Warm-toned LED lighting is an excellent option to make your home feel like a sanctuary from the harsh temperatures, and soft illumination from a bedside lamp offers the perfect ambiance for evening reading.
Decorate With Safety in Mind
The holiday season is the perfect time of year to don your favorite festive decorations. However, lights and real trees can be hazardous if they’re not properly inspected and maintained. If you’re hanging twinkling lights in your condo or out on the balcony, be sure to examine them for frayed wires, which can be an electrical hazard. If you’re using a real tree for the holidays, make it a priority to keep it watered, since dry trees are flammable. Additionally, candles should be placed strategically to avoid catching fire to nearby objects.
Add Texture to Your Bed
If you’d like to save money on energy bills, avoid cranking up the heat and get cozy by adding plenty of layers and textures to your bed. For a luxuriously soft bedtime experience, invest in a few velvet-covered pillows and flannel sheets, and keep a plush throw blanket at the foot of the bed for extra warmth. These simple swaps are ideal for enduring the bitter temperatures of winter, and when warmer weather is on the way, you can give the pillows and throw blanket a new home on the sofa.
