Most times when we speak about getting a home ready for winter that means doing the things to prepare your house to survive the cold months or doing those last few projects outside that you won’t be able to do during winter like lawn care, cleaning and repairs.
In 2020, preparing for winter takes on a new meaning. Not only are we fortifying the outside of our homes, but we are getting ready for several months of dedicated home time. Shop for seasonal décor and holiday gifts ahead of time, re-think how you entertain for larger gatherings and tackle that project you would like to get done. The winter months can be an enjoyable respite with some thoughtful consideration.
Settling into the weather changing has most people dreaming of soft, warm textiles, comforting scents and getting cozy. Candles and accent pillows are great gifts for the holidays, and rugs and throws are perfect for updating your cold-weather décor. Rusted Window offers a curated variety. Holder Mattress can help customize your perfect mattress; the ultimate in creating a truly comfortable and relaxing sleep space.
Cozy it Up
Entertaining in the winter months may look different this year as we move many of our celebrations outdoors or into bigger spaces. Firepits and fire features are very popular with homeowners hoping to warm up a gathering in both indoor and outdoor spaces, many of these hearth models are sold by Godby Hearth & Home. Spacing out seating arrangements to safely share a meal may mean that a bigger dining table is in order. There are many to choose from and customize to your own family specifications at PAIR’D Furnishings.
