House covered with snow

It’s officially winter in Westchester. Having trouble warming up? Try these tips to warm up your home and start enjoying the winter.

9 Ways to Warm Up Your Home This Winter

1. Install More Insulation

Feel like you can never quite get the chill out of your home? It could be the insulation. Over the years the insulation in your home will function at a different level. Get your home evaluated and see if your insulation is working.

2. Replace Your Windows

Old windows are one of the top ways warm air can leave your house and the cold air can enter. If you feel cold near a window, it may be time to replace it.

3. Re-Caulk Around Windows

Caulk dries and cracks over time. If you feel a draft coming in or the caulk looks dried and cracked, it may be time to re-caulk.

4. Color Scheme

The colors you choose to paint a room can give it a feeling of warmth. Try warm colors like tan, gold, red, and orange to add warmth and coziness.

5. Glowing Fireplace

Do you have one but never turn it on? Or have you been itching to install one? Besides the warmth it gives off, the sight and sound of it are also comforting and cozy.

6. Throw Blankets

Have a plethora of cozy blankets available for snuggling up in front of the fireplace. Not only do they keep you warm and cozy, but they are a great accent to your couch.

7. Book Shelves and Built-Ins

Bookshelves and built-ins are a great way to cozy up any room of the house, plus they help keep you organized. There are so many different styles and ways to customize shelving, the possibilities are endless.
