With temperatures dropping, it’s time to equip your TV room with all the winter weather touches, so you can stay nice and warm during those movie marathons. Sweater weather is officially here, and we plan on braving the chill under a fleece blanket from the comfort of our TV room.
Here are five updates you can make now to ensure your TV room is toasty all winter long.
1.Darken up your color scheme.
If your TV room is light and bright, incorporating some dark colors could help visually warm up the room. This is easy to do without making any major changes. Simply swap out your throw pillows, add an area rug (or layer one over your existing rug), and switch out seasonal window treatments.
2. Stock the room with extra blankets.
Store extra blankets in your all wood cabinetry or storage ottoman for easy access. You will definitely want to have cozy blankets on hand for cuddling up on the couch to watch your favorite holiday movie. You can even drape a few throw blankets on chairs and sofas to help complement your new winter color scheme, and add some texture.
3. Prepare the fireplace.
If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your TV room, you’ll want to get it ready for the cold weather season, so that you can take full advantage. It’s recommended that you have your chimney swept at least once per year to remove any debris and soot. If you haven’t used your fireplace since last winter, schedule any necessary maintenance as soon as possible, so you can light up those logs on cozy nights.
4. Install a home bar or set up a bar cart.
Having drinks and snacks just steps away is a major bonus in a TV room. Since you’re likely to be spending more time inside during the winter months, now is a great time to install a home bar. Get started by ordering cabinet door samples to find the perfect style of all wood cabinetry bar cabinets for the room. If a home bar isn’t in the cards right now, our selection of portable carts and islands make a great addition as well and can be set up in just minutes after delivery.
5. Upgrade your lighting.
With the days getting shorter, you may have realized that the lighting in your home isn’t exactly up to par. If your TV room is more dark than dim, consider upgrading your light fixtures to give a warm cast of light across the room. If you also use the TV room for reading or playing games, make sure you have the right task lighting, so that you can enjoy these activities without straining to see.
