Winter Warmers From The Home Company

With the outside temperatures beginning to drop, now is the time to update your home ready for the winter months.

That’s according to The Home Company, Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishings store, which has some top tips on how to invest to make your home deliciously cosy and inviting this season.

Linda Lee, the lifestyle store’s manager said: “As the cold winter nights start to draw in, it’s important home owners start to think about how to make their home cosy and snug.

“Nothing says warm and inviting like sitting next to a roaring fire, but not every household has that option. There are alternative ways to bring warmth into your home, for example, by simply looking at your furniture and furnishings.”

For example, contrasting a neutral theme with soft furnishings in burnt reds and oranges will immediately make a room feel cosier, while chunky knitted throws and cushions in tempting textures help to add depth and comfort.

If you’re in the market for new seating, Linda recommends a generous high backed sofa to create a relaxed setting, such as the Oregon, from the Dales collection. Available in a mix of fabrics and colours – plain and patterned – it is perfect for winding down after a stressful day.

Said Linda: “This compact sofa range is the only one in the Dales collection to include the option of a manual or electric reclining chair. It will be on our shop floor, available for order, from the middle of December.”

Cover hard flooring surfaces like tiles or wood with a large rug during the winter months to help create a snug atmosphere. The Home Company’s Cascade rug in colour Paprika is the perfect way to add spice to any area in the home.

Said Linda: “If you’re on a budget and want a cost-friendly alternative to banishing those chilly climes, consider one of the luxurious throws from the Chiltern range. They come in a selection of cosy colours including plum and red, with prices starting from a reasonable £29.”
