Get Your Home Ready for Autumn & Winter

As the seasons change and the days get shorter and colder, our homes need to change accordingly to help us deal with the inevitable chilly temperatures. There are many small changes you can make to your space that will have a big effect, bringing feelings of warmth and cosiness to get you through the cold months. Keep reading below to find out how to nurture your environment and make it homely and relaxing.

Heating Your Home

The most important thing to check and prepare for in autumn and winter is your heating set up, as this will have the most effect on keeping you toasty and warm. The first thing you need to do is check your boiler and all of your radiators to make sure they are working as they should. You don’t want to be caught out in the freezing cold with no heating to warm you up, so checking their efficiency is best to do when your fingers and toes aren’t turning blue.

A stylish and practical radiator cover will keep your radiators protected against knocks and bumps as well as protect little fingers from getting burned. Our radiator covers are designed with efficiency in mind, allowing sufficient air circulation around the radiator which helps with even distribution of heat. If your radiators are lacking the oomph needed to warm your rooms, you should complete your cold fighting arsenal with an oil filled radiator. Mains operated and mounted on castor wheels for optimum portability, our oil filled radiators heat up quickly and are an excellent adversary to frosty temperatures, keeping you cosy at the touch of a button.

Autumn & Winter Smell like Baking

The beautiful smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are all associated with winter, as is baking. Nothing quite beats the smells of baking cookies, cakes, and all things spiced and sweet, so its best that you arm yourself with the best possible baking equipment before it’s too late. A stand mixer will soon become your best friend. Just set it to your chosen speed of mixing and let it work its magic into your mixture. You’ll be able to fill your home with the wonderful baking aromas as often as you want thanks to the effortless mixing that your arms won’t have to do.

Warm Lighting

Your lighting will need to be on top form during autumn and winter as these are the darkest months of the year. Candles are a great way of introducing natural warm light and wonderful smells into any room. Changing your lights out for ones that can add hues of warmth will also work wonders with helping you to feel cosy; after all, a plain bulb can only do so much to add atmosphere, so you should pair this with a tinted glass covering for maximum effectiveness. From ceiling to wall lights, floor to table lamps, we have a vast selection sure to fit anyone’s taste.

Light-Up Mirrors for Dark Mornings & Evenings

Leading on from lighting, another fantastic piece of homeware that’s sure to make the darkness irrelevant is a light-up mirror. Styling your hair or doing your make-up in a darker room is not the easiest of tasks, especially if your lights aren’t as bright as natural sunlight. That’s where an illuminated vanity or bathroom mirror comes in; they create the optimum lighting set up so you can easily see your reflection and get styling. Our Hollywood mirror range is stylish and all of them would fit in perfectly with any bedroom. Our illuminated bathroom mirrors also look super sleek and are touch operated for effortless use – you’ll wonder how you did your grooming routine for so long without this light-up tech.

As important as it is getting your home ready for the colder months, it’s just as important to get yourself ready too. The low temperatures of autumn and winter can fill you with a feeling of dread but it’s important to remember all of the positives of this colder season; think long, cosy nights in bed and the candle-lit evenings on the sofa. There is so much to look forward to, from the downtime to the food, so look forward to it rather than wishing it away!
