As you shut the front door and peel off your knitted layers, that feeling of escaping the bitter cold is like receiving a big, warm cuddle. You may be able to hear the rain lashing on the window panes and wind in the trees, but who cares if you're nice and toasty indoors? Here are a few of our top tips for feeling cosy.
Close room doors once the heating is on and draw curtains at dusk to trap the heat inside. Investing in a pair of heavy-lined curtains is ideal for the winter months; our John Lewis Blackout Curtain Lining has a unique composition of three layers fused together, which can help keep that chilly draught out.
Alternatively, our John Lewis Energy-Saving Blackout Roman Blind will give your windows an extra layer of insulation when they need it the most. As it reflects the heat back into your room you can turn your thermostat down and ultimately reduce your energy consumption and utility bills.
To be sure you're locking out any draughts, our quirky and stylish draught excluders ensure the warmth in your home doesn't escape. Whether you're a cat lover or prefer a puppy, these Dora Designs draught excluders are pets that don't need feeding and will not let the chill in on their watch.
Once you've said goodbye to the cold, cosy accessories will add warm touches to your home and set a relaxing and welcoming scene for all the family. This madebyzen Iris Ultrasonic Diffuser acts as a mini humidifier, adding moisture to the air when just the thought of opening a window for fresh air sends shivers down your spine. As it circulates gorgeous scented mist around your room, the diffuser expels stale air and refreshes the atmosphere.
While you cuddle up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate, our John Lewis Cable Knit Blanket will make you feel all fuzzy inside. Accessorise with our John Lewis lambswool Hottie or Vagabond Waffle Wheat Wrap to warm your cockles for the night.
One of winter's pleasures is snuggling up in bed after a long day. Whether you're treating yourself to a lie in or not, our John Lewis Duck Down and Feather Mattress Topper will give you a soft landing when you leap under the covers on those colder nights. Our synthetic John Lewis Breathe Mattress Protectors also offer a soft breathable layer that will help regulate your body temperature throughout the night. Not too hot, not too cold - like Goldilocks you'll feel just right.
