Winter is fast approaching but don't panic (just yet) as there's still time to get your home ready for winter and the upcoming festive celebrations! I love the cosiness of the autumn and winter months, especially as I work from home and I can enjoy all of the cosy homeware, candles and festive decor all day! Today's post features a few tips and ideas to get your home cosy and christmassy in time for the festive season. 

Cosy Homeware 
Candles, cosy blankets, comfy cushions, cookie scented diffusers, cuddly throws and of course, Christmas decorations can make any room wonderfully cosy and inviting. I love to add rustic, wooden and old well loved decorations to our home over the autumn and winter months to add cosiness and comforting nostalgia to an otherwise minimally decorated home. I'd also recommend the addition of a beautiful seasonal bouquet; I cannot recommend the gorgeous range of floral arrangements from Haute Florist enough. 

Christmas Decor 
We've been using the same decorations since I was very young which makes Christmas and the well loved decorations that come along with it, all the more special and heartwarming. I love our combination of old worn decorations that have seen many Christmas seasons and our decorations that we've purchased on holiday and more recently - they are guaranteed to make our home look cosy and ready for winter instantly. 

Heating & Energy Saving Alternatives 
Heating bills can soar over the colder months so making changes to improve or update your loft insulation and potentially switching to a more energy efficient boiler might make all the difference to your bills this winter. Draft proofing your home can help too, along with changing your furniture so that it doesn't block and absorb the heat from your radiators.

Accessibility & Home Improvements
Lastly, home improvements before the busy festive season are essential, especially if your older relatives are staying over during lockdown or the festive season. Accessibility and mobility need to be considered with any older relative and various home improvements can be installed easily such as rails within the bathroom and stair lifts at home. Certain improvements might be an investment but future proofing your home might be a great option in the long term. 

Do you have any tips to make your home ready for winter?
