Making Your Home Festive and Cozy for the Winter

Home Improvement
When it gets cold and barren in the winter months, it's a great feeling to know that as soon as you get home from work you can cuddle up on your sofa or favorite chair and feel perfectly cozy. This relaxation might only be a sugarplum vision if your home is prone to icy sidewalks, leeching heat, and a faulty furnace. Before the weather gets cold, make sure that you install some accessories to make your home feel festive and welcoming. You should also consider a few fixes to make your home safe and the perfect temperature, including installing a fireplace and investing in fireplace accessories before the snow storms start.

Setting Up Festive Decorations

What is the winter holiday season without colorful lights and weatherproof decorations? Each December, people celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, and many other wintertime festivals. It helps drive away the doldrums that come with cold weather and less light to decorate and make things bright again. Many homeowners opt to put up small colorful lights. You can string them across your roof or wrap the trees in your front yard with strands. If you have a ladder and some determination, you can do the chore yourself. Otherwise, more and more home decoration businesses have popped up in the last few years to help homeowners with larger trees or more area to cover.

Making Sure Your Yard Is Safe

There's nothing cozy or festive about falling on icy pavement and breaking a leg. Unfortunately, some homeowners put off winterizing their homes until the last minute and then injure themselves when the first bad weather comes. Before storms roll in, make sure that you have railing near any uneven surfaces outside your home. Keep salt in your garage or on your porch to melt the ice that can collect on your concrete when there's precipitation. You should also regularly knock down icicles. Although they look pretty, they can seriously injure anyone who walks under them right when they begin to thaw. In order to keep your homeowner's insurance unused, take precautions to make your home holiday-safe.

Checking Your Insulation

If you live in an older house and it constantly feels chilly in the winter, it could be because there is an issue with your insulation or the weatherproofing around your windows and doors. Checking that your crawlspaces, attic, and basement have insulation can give you an idea of where your heat is escaping. Make sure to be safe when entering areas where there might be bugs or rodents and wear protective clothing.

You can also put some fresh weather strips on the bottom of doors to the outside. This will help your energy consumption stay sustainable and might save you a couple dollars on your utility bill every month.

Installing Gas or Electric Fireplaces

Furnaces and water heaters should be checked each winter. If you keep your furnace filter clean and regularly-changed, there is only one more way to keep your home toasty. You can install fireplaces in your home to give yourself a great place to relax and watch the colorful flames. These serve a practical purpose: They can supplement the heat from your furnace and give you localized heat for your living or sitting room. If you decide to improve your home with a fireplace or two, make sure that you pick up fireplace accessories necessary to keep your fire working. Accessories include a small shovel or stoker to keep the fireplace clean and your embers hot. With these additions to your home, you can increase the value of your home and make it a great place to entertain holiday guests over the winter season.
