Winters are broadly the times when people prefer staying inside their houses which may become too boring, staying inside the same four walls every day! Sounds bizarre! Why not make it interesting and a visual treat for the eyes? Decorate the windows of your house with colourful and stylish curtains so that whenever in the day or night time you feel bored, these curtains help you recover from this house arrest.

Also, you can decorate your house and windows with indoor plants, these can add beauty to your house, can improve oxygen levels and make you feel alive inside the cold house. There are many plants that you can add to your houses such as Aloe Vera, Lucky Bamboo Plant, Snake Plant, Money Plant Golden and Spider Plant among many others. Keeping the doors and windows of the house closed may reduce the oxygen levels and to improve them, you must bring indoor plants.

Use carpets in bedrooms & living rooms

Children and pets tend to keep themselves barefoot all day long and this may infect them with several bacteria making them sick and cold. You must spread the carpets on your bedroom and living room floors to make them cosy and secure for your kids and pets when they are playing on the ground. Woollen carpets, Persian carpets and even shag rags are great choices for the purpose.

Carpets are also a way to improve the interiors of your house, they look super cool and attractive while keeping your family safe in case of slippery floors and other minor injuries. Always get the carpets dry-cleaned before and after you use them in the winter to avoid any infections and insect attacks.

Get Water Heaters in Bathrooms checked

Warm water is the basic requirement of every household in winters. To bathe kids, pets and even ourselves, therefore, you must check your water heaters checked before the arrival of winters so that you can conveniently utilize them when the time comes. Get the electrical fittings for the geysers to make bathing easy in the winter season.

Order Pet clothes Beforehand & Create a cosy bedspace for them

Pets also require a cosy and warm space to sleep in the night, although the fur animals have protective fur to prevent cold, the fur cannot protect the animals from the extreme winters. Therefore, buy winter clothes for them and put on them whenever you take them outside for walks and play. Also, create a warm bedspace for them to sleep in the night.

Clean up chimneys and fireplaces

Fireplaces are also a primary need for houses with kids because cold can lead to several health issues in children that you would want to keep them away from. Hence, clean up the fireplaces and chimneys before winter's arrival so that you can light them in the winter when the time comes. Fireplaces also enhance the beauty of the houses with attractive fireplaces and enhance the cosy look of your house.

Dry-clean the warm blankets & take the extra ones

Kids require extra care in the cold season and so, you must use extra blankets in their rooms so as to keep them protected from the cold and snowy wind. For that, you can use extra blankets on their beds and cover kids up in another blanket set to keep them warm during the night. You can also use flannel sheets and woollen pillowcases to keep your kid's and pet's bodies warm in the cold weather. These are not uncomfortable and are super warm for your kids and pets.

Whenever you take the blankets out of your storage spaces, you must get them dry-cleaned to protect the kids from the insects and bugs in them while they were in the storage spaces.
