The Coziest Spaces

Tips to look and feel cozy in your home

Warm Up Your Look


New color-changing modern LED bulbs are all-the-rage in domestic and commercial spaces. High-tech, top notch name brand bulbs are finally coming down in price and are quite affordable for a starter kit. The bulbs can pair with most Bluetooth devices, and the newest models connect to your Google home or Amazon Echo, and even your home WiFi. You can set them to any color you desire and even dim and turn them off with your phone! Setting bulbs to all warm tones helps create a warmer appearance overall in the aesthetic of your home.


Don’t have one? Get one for next Winter. You won’t regret it!

Can’t afford a chimney and all that masonry? Maybe a gas fireplace is for you…

Can’t run a gas line? An indoor fireplace runs on gel fuel and cranks out the BTU’s just like a real fireplace. Plus, these fireplaces look super luxurious – and at only $500 – you can’t afford not to get one!

Can’t spring for the $500 Silverton? Well for FREE, it may not be a physical fireplace, but you can have a virtual fireplace like this one on YouTube with real fireplace sound effects. Even a virtual fireplace on you TV or computer can warm up the environment.

Warm It Up – Physically!

Best Deal – Heated blanket One luxury blanket we tried is the Biddeford Velour Fleece Blanket and it is is top notch. If you can catch it on sale, the twin size is just under $100. Most quality heated blankets are great gifts for just under $100. (We would suggest steering away from heated blankets that are cheaper than $40. Usually the heating elements don’t warm evenly, or the blanket itself is just not very soft.)

The Best Of Both Worlds
Alternatively, try out the ultimate luxury by being engulfed in a bed of warmth – warm up both sides of your body by getting a heated mattress pad along with your heated blanket. There is absolutely nothing like getting into a pre-warmed-up bed – especially if you are the type of person who shivers when crawling into your chilly sheets at night.


Best (Safe & Efficient) Space Heaters

Honeywell heaters These little from $25 to $100 devices are a lifesaver for drafty indoor spaces. They come in all shapes and sizes, you are sure to find one to fit your space.

Note: An average heater cranks out about 5100 BTU’s (British Thermal Units,) that’s enough to heat an average room size of 144 square feet.

Once you find the one you want, the only problem you will have is not wanting to move out from in front of your little cozy heater.


The Warmest Heater

The most efficient heater we’ve tried is the Cambridge Cylinder Propane Heater. Not to mention, the elegant bronze finish is classy too.

These heaters are made for outdoor use – patios, garages, and decks. Two of these bad boys on a deck for $500 each you can literally move the party outdoors, even on the coldest days!
