Know How: Top Tips For A Warmer Home
Though Spring is firmly on the horizon, we’ve still a few more months left of cold weather left to endure, but you may not want the disruption of upgrading insulation or installing under floor heating. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best, simple techniques to keep the cold snap at bay.
If you’re looking for a design-led solution to warming up your interiors, try installing a statement radiator like this artistic grid design by Kermi. As well as the traditional a horizontal positioning, you can also take inspiration from the Karotherm and opt for a vertical radiator, a design which is no longer confined to the realm of the bathroom.
Carpets with an underlay are recommended as the highest performance and cost-effective flooring to keep your floors warm. While under floor heating may make your room warmer overall, the cost associated with a thick wool carpet is much lower and is suitable for most room types. Install a carpet runner on your stairs, or create interest with a bold print such as Carpetright’s Zinc Hexagon and keep the rest of your furnishings pared back and neutral.
The eco-conscious amongst us know that it’s not enough to simply crank up the heating all through the winter to heat your home - the intelligent way to heat your home is through a smart thermostat. The new Third Generation Nest Thermostat - shown here in copper – is a chic and clever little wireless thermostat to monitor and control heating in your home. It even comes with its own mobile app to control your warmth levels remotely.
Throws and Blankets
No longer consigned to the bedroom, the versatile throw has become a living room staple to keep your family warm. Whether you choose comfy fleece blanket-style soft furnishing or a chunky design-led grey throw like our Knitted Mid-Grey Blanket, you can guarantee you won’t want to emerge from underneath it until Spring.
