Prepping Your Bedroom for Winter
Winter is a time to enjoy great beauty. It’s truly spectacular.
Because of the times we live in, we have the ability to enjoy the season and not have to worry about things like starving to death. However, there are some steps we should take to keep warm and cozy through the winter season.
Now is the time to make these preparations. Not a moment later.
If you are stuck without heat, it can be a drain on you. If you aren’t particularly fond of the cold weather, well, all the more reason to take these preps seriously. Of course, it’s not all bad but weather can be a downer if you spend most of it shivering.
Get Out the Winter Bedding
All comforters are not created equal. Get involved in some wool, some down and some quilted patterns. These things are not just made for nostalgia. Your polyester might do you in the cool days of fall but get some real winter bedding.
How you sleep can make a huge difference with how you feel about the season as a whole. Be prepared to jump into a warm bed at the end of the day. Or in the middle of the day!
Also, stop that cold at the windows. Don’t even let it get into the bedroom. Quilted curtains can be an extreme ally in the battle of insulation. Get some heavy curtains and put them up all over the house.
Heater Check and Maintenance
Now is also the time to get that heater looked at. Don’t let it break down on you on the coldest day of the year. You’re a prepper! That’s Murphy’s Law.
As long as you have 4 walls you are doing better than most creatures in the winter. What steps are you taking each year to maximize your air quality, heat efficiency, and general comfort through the winter?
