You will find a dozen words to describe your teeny tiny home – small, petite and piquena – but, one word you don’t want to forget with regards to smaller spaces is – cozy. It’s all to easy to have a cozy vibe – just picture fluffy blankets, soft lighting and a warm cup of tea. As the temperatures drop as well as the snowflakes fly coziness, becomes all the more essential. There’s so much to find out about teeny tiny house living, these top ideas to easily turn your tiny home into a cozy cottage that keeps the cold outside and the cozy inside.
Keepin’ Your Teeny Tiny Cottage Cozy during the Cold
String Up Some Lights
Bright, natural light is easily available in the spring, however, not so accessible in the winter. The season is famous for providing us with shorter days and less sunlight. Rather than reaching for the light switch, add warm, inviting light in the darkest days of winter. While you may well go with traditional Christmas lights, there are numerous string lights specifically designed for interior decorating. Plus – string lights could help you save space in your teeny tiny abode because they’re not as bulky as floor and counter lamps.
While your tiny home is probably already equipped with an HVAC system, nothing says cozy like watching the flickering flames of an electric fireplace. Small and mostly easy to maintain, mobile electric fireplaces are safe and a little cozy to your life.
Cozy-Up Winter Decor
Nothing says cozy winter decor quite like a fluffy area rug or weighted blanket, seasonal wreaths, holiday scented soy candles and winter-themed banners. The warm ambient light of candles will spruce up your home with pine and cranberry scents of the season. Consider a DIY wreath project to save you a bit of holiday cash. Think about the cozy you are letting out through your windows and doors – invest in plush, thermal curtains to improve your warmth factor.
Bring in Some Green
In the dead of winter, your outdoor garden looks a bit bleak. Don’t wait for spring to bring around green, include some indoor plants to your tiny space. On top of that they clean the air and are good for our mental health, but by bringing the outdoors in, you can beat those winter blues. A few of our favorite easy, indoor plants include spider plants, snake plants, devil’s ivy, succulents and Christmas cactus.
Protect Your Outdoor Space
Sometimes you need to simply get away – however if you live in an area with cold or wet weather, it’s difficult to get outside. Consider installing a deck or pergola to increase your living space at a low-cost, year-round. Add in an outdoor heater, a farmhouse table plus some solar lighting and you’ll have a great place to host, even in the dead of winter.
