At Hire A Hubby, we understand the importance of creating a cosy haven for you and your family during the chilly months. So, let’s explore some tips and ideas on how to turn your house into the perfect winter retreat.
Paint the Walls with Warmer Colours
Warm colours help to create cosy and inviting spaces. Using warm colours will create a sense of heat and help close a room, making it more intimate.
When defining warm colours, these are the hues which provide a sense of warmth, such as orange, yellow and red.
If you are not a fan of these striking colours, that isn’t a problem. There is more to these colour choices with subtler options such as earthy browns, beiges and warm whites. They only use a tint of orange, yellow or red to warm the otherwise cool palette.
Whether its a single room or a complete makeover, Hire A Hubby’s expert painters can help warm your home with colour this winter.
Curtains and Curtain Rods
Curtains can play a significant role in warming a home during the winter months. They act as a layer of insulation, providing a barrier between the cold window glass and the interior of the room. Thicker and heavier curtains, such as those made of thermal materials, are particularly effective at preventing heat loss.
Remember to open curtains during the day to let in sunlight and close them at night to retain warmth.
Hire A Hubby can help put that perfect finishing touch to your windows with the installation of curtain rods.

Create a Snug
At the end of a busy day, there is something positive to be said to retreating to a cosy space to unwind and watch a film, have a glass of wine or entertain.
Add warmth and comfort to your seating areas with soft, snuggly throws and plush pillows. They’re perfect for curling up with a good book.
Hire A Hubby can help you create the perfect snug through bespoke carpentry including custom shelving, storage, and furniture tailored to your needs.
Shelves Around Room and Door Frames
Use your available wall space wisely by adding shelves around room frames and door frames. They not only provide extra storage but also create a stylish design feature.
Our Hubbies will oversee every part of the job including the initial survey, planning and construction, right through to supplying all of the materials.
If you have a fireplace, create a cosy nook around it with comfortable seating and shelving for books or decor. Don’t forget to maintain your fireplace for safety and warmth.
