Update Your Bedroom For Winters

Winter has arrived, and we are all likely to spend more time at home during the colder months, as we did last year. But that doesn’t mean our houses have to stay the same. There are a few quick projects you can do to help your entire family weather the winter weather while remaining physically and mentally healthy. We recommend that you use the following tips in addition to updating your bed linens. 

Prior to Beginning

Before you begin your updating project, it’s a good idea to learn the fundamentals of design. DecoratorStudio and HGTV Design 101 courses can help you with this. These online courses are ideal for those of you who want to be your own Joanna Gaines. Another thing to consider is how changes you make today may affect the value of your property in the future, especially if you plan to move within the next few years. Learn about the features that are in high demand in your local market. Keep all of your receipts and have before and after pictures saved if you plan to sell for slightly more than the home next door, as you may have to justify your list price.

A Happier Home Is Achievable

Are you stressed out? The majority of us are. At home, you don’t have to feel that way. Here are a few ideas for relieving tension in your safe space:

  • Clear the clutter. Clutter causes stress and can even pose a health risk in your home.

Digitize everything you can. Clutter removal should include any piles of paperwork, important documents, and photographs. A PDF file merger can assist you in keeping everything organized and in one location.

  • Bedding with Layers

Add layers of bedding to your bed so that you can either pull more covers on when it gets really cold, or leave some layers folded at the foot of the bed when it gets a little warmer. Begin with regular sheets and then add a fleece blanket. On top of the layers, add a custom quilt or comforter. This balance allows your overall covers to gain weight, keeping your body heat inside the sheets, just like layering clothing outside.

  • Replace toiletries. Organic soaps are better for your skin, and a new fragrance can lift your spirits.
  • Clean out your refrigerator. Most likely, you have at least one container of six-month-old yogurt lurking in the back of your refrigerator. Empty the fridge completely, disinfect it, and remember to vacuum the coils to improve efficiency.
  • Enhance air quality. Whether you realize it or not, the air inside your home can be worse than the air outside. If you have pets, smoke, or have allergies, you should pay close attention to the air around you. Petro Home Services advises changing filters, inspecting air ducts, and keeping rugs and carpets clean.
  • Clear out the chimney

While this is related to air quality, it is also related to safety measures. If you use a wood-burning fireplace, it’s important to have your chimney cleaned every year to remove build-up. Find a chimney cleaner in your area who can make quick work of this dirty job.

  • Paint. Color has the ability to alter one’s mood. Grab your paintbrush if you find yourself feeling stressed every time you enter a certain room. Reds, oranges, and other warm colors are typically more calming than blues, greens, and neutrals.
  • Purchase new bed linens. Have you been tossing and turning all night? Your bedding could be the source of the problem. Bamboo sheets are an excellent choice because they provide both softness and temperature regulation. Wash your sheets frequently (we recommend every 1-2 weeks) and snuggle up with a bamboo comforter for the best night’s sleep.
  • Include Textures

Textures in your bedroom help to give it a more winter-like appearance and feel. Increase the thickness of your window treatments, such as insulated drapes. This type of fabric will help to keep cold air away from your bedroom windows and trap it. It will keep the cold air out of your bedroom and keep it warmer because the heater will not have to warm the cold air as well as the air in the room. You can also add a layer of thicker decorator fabric to your window treatments for added coziness and warmth.

  • Prepare your bed. When it comes to bed linens, make sure to make your bed every morning. This is a simple psychological trick that can help you feel more productive and prepared for the day ahead.
  • Pillows for Throws

Assorted custom throw pillows in a fabric that matches or coordinates with the colors in your draperies will add texture to your bed. Corduroy, velour, and denim are all good winter fabrics for pillows. You can mix and match solid color pillows with pattern pillows such as stripes and chevron patterns.

  • Make it Smell Nice
  • Items in your bedroom that you change to accommodate winter have most likely been in storage since last year. As you add stored warmer bedding and curtains, spray them with fabric refresher to give them a clean and light scent. It also helps you sleep better if your bedding and surroundings smell nice.
  • Don’t Forget About the Floor

If you have a hardwood floor in your bedroom, you can add a nice cozy rug to the keep your feet warm when you get out of bed. Choose a warm color, such as red or orange, to complement the other colors in your bedroom. On your cold feet, a faux fur rug feels luxurious

  • When necessary, outsource

You can revitalize your space in a variety of ways on your own. Certain aspects of your home improvement projects, on the other hand, are best left to the professionals.

These tips can help you refresh your bedroom and prepare for the arrival of winter. Consider your needs and how minor changes can improve your way of life. The above tips can help you have a happier and healthier home throughout the cold winter months, from simply changing your bath product to updating the color scheme in rooms that make you antsy.
