Curtains contribute to the retention of heat in the house. So when the nights start to get chilly, replace your lighter summer curtains with heavier ones to ensure warm and cozy evenings.

Getting out of the shower on a cold day is so much more enjoyable when you can wrap yourself in a big, fluffy towel to warm up and dry off. A new set of plush towels will not only keep you warm, but will also make the prospect of getting up while it’s still dark that much more enjoyable. If your budget allows, invest in a heated towel rail for a touch of luxury.
