How to Warm up your Home on a Budget.

With cold weather and rainy days threatening to make a comeback over the Easter bank holiday weekend, you may be more tempted to stay warm and snug at home rather than venturing out into freezing, wet temperatures!

If your plan is to curl up and chill out over the weekend, follow our top tips for making your home as warm and cosy as possible without breaking the bank...

Warm Textiles
Mixing different textures together such as a fleecy blanket with furry cushions brings a feel of warmth into a room. Keep a knitted throw on the arm of your sofa to wrap around you when the sun goes down and temperatures begin to drop.

Light Candles
If your property doesn’t benefit from a fireplace, lighting candles is a great alternative way of creating a warm glow and cosy room. Choose a light scent that creates a calming atmosphere.

H&M Home

Soft Colour
Choose rich and neutral colours which create warmth over stark whites, harsh blacks or bright pops of colour, which are better suited to the warmer months.

Wall Art
Hanging art prints makes a space warmer and more inviting by filling up bare and empty wall space. Choose art or photography imagery with soft hues that bring warm shades to your walls.


The Right Lighting
Choose a low wattage bulb for your lamps to create a calming and relaxed atmosphere. Or for main lights, a large paper lampshade which softens the glow and adds a feature to the room.



Textured Rugs
A large, soft rug is great for covering up hard, cold floors, especially if you have old and draughty floorboards. Textured rugs not only feel comfortable to walk on, they also make a room look warmer and much more inviting.


Whether you staying in or heading out, we wish you all a Happy Easter, from us all at Bluerow Homes!
