Make Your Home Cozy for Winter Months

Make Your Home Cozy for Winter Months

As the seasons change and temperatures drop, it’s natural to start thinking about ways to turn your home or condo into a destination for the winter months. There are plenty of ways to add comfort and not all of them require a major expense. In fact, Dwell Home Furnishings Sales Manager Jenny Bimson says if you’ve chosen the major pieces for your home well, there are simple ways to bring extra comfort to your home in the colder months.

Color, Texture, Fabric, and Light Can Make Home Cozy

Jenny suggests that you can easily work with your existing furniture pieces but introduce a new color scheme with the accents. For instance, you may have used a brighter and more intense color scheme during the summer/spring months, but through the use of deeper/richer color tones, you can prepare your living space for the winter. Don’t focus on having your color scheme consist of several colors, keep it simple and use a variation of one color tone. This creates a soft and quiet effect.

Jenny notes it’s not just about color, “Think rich textures like a fur throw over the arm of your favorite chair, textured accent pillows, even introducing a plush rug. The texture in itself will ‘warm’ up your room.”

Make home cozy for winter with Dwell Home Furnishings, Coralville, IA

Texture, throws and lighting can make a home feel cozy for the winter.

When addressing area rugs you might use a seagrass rug during the summer months, by winter, a rich, textured rug can really make a room more inviting.

Options don’t end there. Consider using a softer bulb in your lamps to light your living areas. Jenny recommends using a lamp with a 3-way switch to give you the option of softening the setting with varying levels of light.

Finally, Jenny mentions that people often overlook the use of draperies.  This added layer is often the missing link in completing a space.  It may be more of an investment, but the dramatic effect that they add is priceless.  Draperies can be added to any space in your home and improve the overall aesthetic.

Another lovely review from one of our wonderful customers, Elaine! 🤍

She worked with @evesloan_interiordesign who found her and her husband the most perfect barstools for their space! Feeling down on their luck they didn't think they would ever find *the* stool for them, until they stopped into Dwell! ✨
