Warm up décor
The colour of your bedroom can make a huge difference to the way it makes you feel. White, grey and blue walls can often look cold – especially in the winter months when there is a lack of sunlight to brighten up your space.
Our brand-new colours – Blush and Clover are the perfect shades for a bedroom that will cocoon you. Whether you choose to paint your walls or upgrade your bedroom furniture, you will be surprised at what a difference a new warming colour can make.
Dress your windows for winter weather
Windows can be a big culprit for letting cold air into a room, so if you are feeling the chill it might be worth considering upgrading your window dressing. Full length curtains will help to add warmth whilst adding colour and pattern. Layering with a curtain and blind combo not only looks slick, but it will also help keep you even more cosy. There are so many options when it comes to picking out fabrics and colours – dark shades and heavy fabrics, like velvet, scream luxury, whilst pattern and a fresher palette can really brighten a room.
Rearrange your furniture
It may sound simple but you would be surprised by how many people are reducing the impact of their central heating by having beds, chairs or drawers pushed up against their radiator – blocking air circulation. Even moving your just bed six inches away from your radiator will help to increase air flow, but if you can get away with a room re-design then now could be the time to do it. Arranging your furniture to allow air to flow freely around is the best way of helping to maximise the efficiency of your heating.
If your full-length curtains cover your radiator then adding window blinds with thermal properties could be a good idea. you will stop heat loss through the window and the radiator will allow warm air to flow into the room.
