  • Cozy Up Your Home to Survive the Winter

    Winter can we one of the dreariest times of the year with the short days, brutally cold winds, and the cold wetness that soaks your socks with the smallest chunk of snow in the wrong place. And to me, walking into a cozy home where I can kick off my shoes and hide from the cold under a nice warm blanket is all I ask for.

    When I saw this article from Yahoo Homes, I scoured the words to find any new ways that I could make my home further into the warm and fluffy nest that I retreat to from the cold outdoors. It lists ways to discover pesky window drafts with a simple candle, and ways to hide nice throw blankets in plain sight. Rugs also help contain heat and prevent it from escaping through the floor and give your feet something besides the cold floor to walk on.

    Consider a fireplace

    There's nothing cozier than warming up by a fireplace. Don't have one? Not to worry - you can purchase them at various price points. Electric fireplaces may not be as authentic, but they produce heat and mimic the sensation of staring at the fire as it crackles away. You can pick up a base model at your local home improvement store for just a few hundred dollars.

    And for more tips on upgrading your home, take a look at our blog. And if you’re looking for a house for rent in Cleveland, OH, take a look at our Cleveland rental properties and call Reilly Painting and Contracting for all your Home Mechanic and remodeling needs.
