When the cold nights close in its nice to spend family time together curled up in front of the TV or playing board games in the living room and when these activities happen you want to feel warm and cosy. Although cranking up the central heating will help you guarantee a happy glow, energy prices are rising rapidly and of course, high energy use increases your carbon footprint. So what else can you do?
Throws and blankets are very in vogue in the world of interiors, particularly brightly coloured ones with a homemade appearance. Have them to hand over the back of the sofa so you can snuggle up together and watch a movie. Make sure you retain heat in the rooms of your home with good insulation and accessories such as energy saving blinds these are available from specialists such as Direct Blinds and have the added benefit of increasing your level of privacy by keeping out peeping eyes.
Finally, finishing touches like draught excluders can make a difference and help keep you warm all year round.
