How to Make Your Living Room Cozy for Winter
When the weather outside is frightful, there’s nothing more delightful than staying home to read, watch TV, spend time with family, or entertain friends.
Make your living room (or family room) extra comfy and cozy with these quick and easy ideas.
Curl Up in Warmth and Comfort
Keep plenty of blankets and throws nearby for lounging, reading, or family movie nights. Draped across the back of a couch or chair, they double as decorative accents, too.
Stay warm head to toe with a Hooded Fleece and Sherpa Throw. It comes in four colors, so each family member can have their own and there’ll be no arguing over whose is whose when the movie is about to start. (They’re machine-washable, too, in case someone spills their drink or snack.)
Weighted Throws target pressure points for even more relaxation.
Get Organized in Style
When everything is in its place, you won’t have to waste valuable time tracking things down—which means you’ll have more time to relax.
Stash warm throws and pillows in a Storage Basket Side Table. The sturdy wooden top is perfect for holding your steaming cup of tea.
Keep knitting supplies, letter-writing supplies, books, or magazines close at hand in the bottom basket of this stylish side table.
Corral all of your remotes (and your reading glasses too) in a Remote Control Organizer.
New Rug, New Look!
Switching out the rugs in a room is an easy way to create an entirely new atmosphere. Affinity Decorative Rugs come in a variety of sizes and in two different rich, warm colors.
Changing out the throw pillows in a room is another way to create a new look without the work. For winter, choose pillows with warm faux-fur trim, fleece backing, or a sweater-like texture.
Keep the Cold Outside Where It Belongs
Dodge drafts under the front door with—what else?—Door Draft Stoppers. They easily slide into place under nearly any door, and they look great doing it.
Blackout Curtains feature a tight-weave fabric that helps keep the light out, but they can also help to keep out the cold air that’s lurking on the other side of that window.
Warm Things Up with Love
Once you’ve put away your Christmas decorations, it’s time to get ready for Valentine’s Day! Add the warmth of love to your living room with Plush Valentine’s Day Gnomes, cute Retro Lighted Trees, and Flowers and Flames Pillars that can be used as candle holders or vases.
Throw in a Little Humor!
Laughter is always a good way to warm the soul. Keep ’em chuckling with a humorous pillow that lets everyone know just how you feel about the coldest season: “Wake Me When Winter Ends.”
