Summer is almost gone.
The hot summer days and hot summer nights are almost over. The season is undoubtedly slowly changing from extremely hot to a much more relaxed time of the year. The leaves slowly change their shade into yellowish-red; the sun rises later and is not so bright, often hidden behind clouds. Let’s get prepared for another long, gray, and cold winter. We don’t want to waste a day of it, but we must prepare well.
This time we will start with our bedroom, as it is a place where we can find all the comfort and coziness that will keep us warm during the long winter nights, giving us quality rest after the cold and busy days. And cheer up. The winter is not all about cold and short days. This is a festive season, and we should look forward to it. So, let’s look at some tips on preparing our bedroom for cozy and cool winter nights.
Cleaning And Preparing Our Comfort Zone First Of All
The first step in preparing for every season should be thorough cleaning. So, we must wash our windows and doors, balcony doors, vacuum floors, and dust everything in the room. Additional checks on the windows and balcony doors may be needed, so it is better to do it in time. Maybe something needs to be fixed before winter comes. The pleasant smell of recently washed curtains and freshly cleaned rugs should replenish your bedroom. Take all the piled summer equipment mess, if there is any, out of your bedroom. Make room for winter to bring comfort and coziness.

The Gray Season Needs Nice Colors
We can introduce nice, jolly, vivid colors to avoid getting fed up with gray and brown. Although our pillow and duvet cases might be in some neutral colors, we can add some more small pillows and throws in different colors.
This will break the white, gray, and brown monotony and make us happier when we spot them. Add some light green and orange here, blue and red there, and purple detail, making your room a brighter and happier place to spend your chilly winter nights.
There is no worse feeling than getting out of the warm bed and stepping on the cold floor. Choose some easy-to-clean rugs matching colors with your pillows and throws, and keep your feet warm and your bedroom cheerful. Some lovely, warm slippers, used only when preparing for bed and going to the bathroom, will also be very suitable.
Add Some Candles To Your Bedroom
Find a nice little corner and put a lovely little table in it, and on the top of that table, put several differently colored lanterns and put those small tea candles in them. This will give you a nice, warm feeling, and as they burn out quickly won’t affect your sleep other than giving you this initial feeling of comfort and warmth. And if you are a lover of scented candles, you can also use one or two of them. They won’t harm you if you use them from time to time.
Not Easy To Leave Your Warm Bed
We all have one struggle of winter mornings in common: time to get up when we have to leave the warmth of our beds. We are snuggled in our warm beds, and the alarm says it’s time to get up. As we all know, we sleep better in a more fabulous room, but our covers have to be warmer to keep us warm all night. And as some nights are more relaxed, we can always add an extra blanket and leave it just in the hand’s reach.
