Do you get the urge to prepare the home for Winter this time of year? I do. It’s essentially the same as a spring clean but I think it’s sounds much more Hygge if it’s about getting the home ready for a cosy winter. I’m talking getting the winter clothes in the wardrobe, cleaning the old coats – maybe even finding that last fiver crumpled in the pocket – swapping out flip flops and canvas shoes for walking boots and wellies. It really helps me get into that hibernation mode. Whilst I can’t sleep the winter away (sadly) I can make my home as cosy as possible to prepare for more time indoors.
Even though it’s getting colder and darker I still open up the doors and windows in the morning, to get some fresh air circulating. It’s even more important these days to keep the home well ventilated and I think doing this each morning really helps. If you have engineered wood flooring in the home you’ll want to give it all a really good, sweep, clean and then maybe consider some super soft fluffy rugs to really bring that warm and cosy feeling in.
I have changed the bedding to our more soft and cosy winter style to help keep warm at night as well as have my trusty dressing gown. There are soft and cosy, fluffy blankets on the sofas to snuggle up into and we’ve swapped the living room fan for a portable heater to help take the chill out of the air in the early mornings. School runs will soon be done in hats, scarfs and gloves and I’ll look forward to coming home for a hot cup of tea and getting the slow cooker on to prepare our dinner.
I have also had time to do the shopping for my kitchen and living area. There are items that I needed to survive during this winter. If you don’t have any of this, then you should be ready to face challenges while trying to keep warm. Luckily, you don’t have to suffer as you can buy these kitchen appliances to stay warm.
It would help if you considered a Nespresso coffee machine. If you want a Starbucks latte, it can be difficult to get it in a winter storm. You cannot travel as the roads have large heaps of snow, making it difficult to get to the nearest drive-through. It can also be a challenge to get delivery to your house as roads are impassable.
But having a Nespresso coffee machine will satisfy your cravings. They are the perfect coffee making machines that produce different kinds of coffee depending on the buds (flavors) you use. They are quickly gaining popularity in the market. Why not get one for your kitchen?
Cookers also come in handy during the winter season. Shop around for the best cookers available and ensure you warm all food. Additionally, ovens have extra partitions to cook other food, saving time.I’ve wanted to create a black and white combined with prints theme for a not so loud vibe in my living area. So I’ll shop for white-hot fans and a cozy black rug. Such items can pop out the wall art prints for your living room, increasing the visibility.
Some people don’t tend to like this time of year – I have to admit I haven’t found the rain very pleasing this year, it’s seemed very wet! But I do love this time of year usually, and I love the ability to try and get cosy once again. I love curling up with a book and a mug of hot chocolate, a blanket over my lap in soft, comfortable clothes and the sound of the wind wrapping around the house. All these little changes as we shift into winter help me to prepare for a bit of a hibernation and keep me feeling cosy.
