HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 27, 2010 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE SMART WAYS Saving on energy bill TOP PICKS Warming clever products UNDERFOOT Flooring options INVENTION Induction cooking the way to go Cozy up at home Janita Singh Cozy up at home It's time to give your home a refreshing warm look for the cooler months ahead. In cold seasons, when the weather does not bring many light and warm days, people are in a hurry to reach a cozy home. Color has huge influence on us. Go to a colour expert and pick out a warm colour for a feature wall or a prominent room. Textiles are usually the most significant element of the house interior. So, changing them will greatly influence the overall look of your home. Change pillows, curtains, tablecloths and blankets for them to be thick, mild and fleecy. Install heaters. But if you care about the environment, you'll try to conserve as much energy as possible. While it's easy to make small changes, like turning off lights not in use, in winter, conservation can be trickier. As temperatures outside drop, thermostats go up. Use more blankets at night to keep warm without heating the whole home. Lower thermostats on water heaters to the lowest comfortable level. Seal cracks and gaps, and install adequate insulation.
