Fleece blankets and quilted throws.
Blankets and throws form a barrier between your body and the cold air. They insulate and stop the body heat you create naturally from escaping. Sherpa fleece blankets are also incredibly durable, lasting year after year. They can be an inexpensive purchase unlike other heating solutions, so having a few on hand in the bedroom or living room is recommended! Shop fleece blankets
Reduce any drafts.
The average home loses about 30 percent of its heat due to drafts. The gaps or cracks found under doors, can often cause the cool air to seep into bedrooms and living spaces. There are many ways to prevent this from becoming any issue, such as reapplying the caulk and sealant around the windows and doors. However, there are some temporary solutions that also provide ample protection from draft. We recommend placing draft excluders, or thick cushions on the floor to help cover any gaps where the cool air may be coming in.
Thermal blackout curtains
10-25% of thermal energy loss goes out of the windows. Replacing your curtains with thermal blackout curtains are a great way to keep the cool air out and trapping the heat indoors during the winter. It is reported that making this simple change can reduce energy loss by up to 25%. Not only is it a great solution for winter, thermal blackout curtains are a fantastic way to keep the rooms cool during the summer, by preventing the hot sun from shining in. Shop blackout curtains
Hot water bottles and heat pads.
Using hot water bottles or even better microwavable heat pads, can help warm up the bed in the evening. Putting one under the covers 10 minutes before hopping into bed can dramatically warm up the space, limiting the need to put the heating on in the entire room. Using smaller hand warmers during the day whilst you’re on the go can help to reduce the chill.
Flannel has been used since the 1600s to protect those from harsh weather. Adding flannel sheets to your bedding decor will help add another insulating layer between you and your duvet. Replacing your standard cotton sheets with flannel is an inexpensive option that can lower your overall heating bill. Shop flannel bedding
Jersey PJs and fluffy socks.
Never underestimate the power of a cosy pair of long sleeve PJs and fluffy socks. After a warming shower, hopping into an outfit that will naturally insulate and help keep the heat close to the body is a must. Ensuring the feet are kept warm throughout the day is vital to maintaining warmth. Wearing thick socks and slippers is an effective way to reduce the need to turn up the thermostat.
