There are many ways to winter-proof your home, and a lot of them require a set of skills that we don’t have — insulating your walls, for example. However, the set of skills we do have is just as useful when it comes to prepping your place for winter. We’re bypassing double-glazed windows and draught excluders and heading for luxury blankets, slippers, and even some entertainment tools to see you through the darker season.
This selection is key to keeping things cozy and setting the vibes in the home, a place we'll likely be spending the bulk of this winter. With Christmas on the way and COVID still at large, it’s never been more important to love your space, so stock up and hunker down for a cozy winter period.
Check our list of winter home essentials below.
