Decor Ideas for your Winter Home in Stoke-on-Trent

The autumn leaves are falling, creating a carpet of gold and brown footpaths across Stoke-on-Trent. The winds are colder, and people are beginning to sport bobble hats, winter coats and woollen scarves. 

We absolutely love autumn and winter here at Quality Estate Agents, so we thought we would take a look at some seasonal trends to help you make your home nice and cosy - and of course look great for viewings if you are selling. 

 

Prepare for the Footprints

You need to create a space where you, the kids, and the dog can come in out of the cold and mud, and not ruin your flooring or make a mess! Whether it’s at the back door, or by the front door, this space will help you keep things clean. 

It might be that you lay down a larger-than-normal doormat, or use a special covering to protect the carpet. You also may want to install hooks to hand your coats up straight away. 

Put your summer shoes away in a wardrobe and keep your winter footwear out. 

 

Winter Candles and Cones

Tell us, who doesn’t just love winter smells in the home? Candles are a low-cost way of creating winter aroma in your house. Pop one in your hallway, or on a mantlepiece and you have something nice to look at and delicious to smell. 

 

Outside in, Naturally

When winter comes, leaves are on the ground, twigs are fallen, cones are lying on the path. Gather some up, after checking that you’re not breaking any rules, and check there are no creepy crawlies hidden away!

The things you collect will make a beautiful natural display inside your home. When the cold weather kicks in, you’ll have some of the outside, indoors. 

Don’t go overboard, as it will look messy. 

 

Dine-in, in style

Chances are, this year you’ll be spending more time at home. So, why not make your rooms a little bit more special. In the dining room, where you may typically just have a few mats on the table, create a cosy atmosphere by choosing a patterned tablecloth that has hints of autumnal colours. Napkins, again colourful, could be placed on the table, bringing style into the dining room. 

 

Lighten up

One thing people seem to do during winter is to switch all the lights on full beam! It really does not create a cost living space. Yes, dark evenings mean light is needed earlier and earlier, but you don’t need it to be bright.

A standard lamp in a corner could provide the main light, with smaller lamps placed on tables in the living room. You should think about cosiness - softer lighting, rugs on the floor, maybe a throw or two on the sofa.
