We’ve seen so much of our homes this year, but we would be at home a lot over the winter anyway to protect ourselves from the cold.
Hopefully, you are making the most of the situation and enjoying the added time indoors, but if you feel you could enjoy it more, use some of the time to enhance the space, or at least make plans for some improvements in the very near future.
With winter fast closing in, it would be in your interests to opt for improvements that will warm up the feel of the place, and we can offer 3 ideas of how you can do it:
Have new, thick carpets installed
Fitting new carpets in your house will do one of several things, including improving heat retention, providing warmth to your feet and adding a fresh new smell to it.
A pure wool carpet is especially thick, but it can be made thicker if you ask for underlay to be included with it.
You can look forward to cheaper fuel costs because of the impressive insulation, and far cosier rooms. Be careful not to leave any marks on your new carpets by removing any footwear before entering into the house.
Give a room a colour update
Any rooms that are no longer as visually stimulating as they were should be given a makeover, and all it could take is a fresh lick of paint.
It’s best to only repaint a room when it’s dry outside so that you can open some windows, and so that it doesn’t take long to do, hand out some paint brushes to others in the house to help.
Don’t go for anything too dark. Instead, choose a cheery colour of some sort, such as a soft yellow, gentle orange or modern grey, and complement your paint job with new artwork, fabrics and furniture.
Install energy efficient windows & doors
With the weather fast cooling down, your energy bills may be fast going up in price, and there could be draughty spots in your home that are forcing you to over rely on heating.
What you need with some urgency is some double or triple glazed energy efficient windows and doors fitted that offer a high energy rating to keep the weather out.
It won’t be a cheap investment, but if you use the GGF’s Energy Savings Calculator, you will see that new windows on their own will save you lots of money in the long-term.
