Heating Things Up: Keeping Your Home Warm as Autumn Approaches


The leaves are falling from the trees, Halloween merchandise is hitting the stores and the nights are drawing in closer at earlier hours of the evening. This can mean only one thing: Autumn is approaching. While Autumn holds many pleasures, it also means that temperatures will rapidly drop and you will find yourself shivering every now and then. While the odd nip in the air can’t be avoided when heading outdoors, you can ensure that your home is toasty and warm, ready to take you in after a long day at work or socialising. Here are a few ways to ensure that your home generates and retains enough heat to keep things cosy this Autumn.

Domestic Heating

There are several different ways to heat your home and chances are that you’ve stuck with the same methods that you grew up with or the options that were already installed in your home when you moved in. But now is the time to ensure that your heating options are up to date and as reliable as possible. Around five million homes across the nation aren’t connected to the national gas grid and thus depend on heating oil to keep things warm. One of the most popular forms of Domestic Heating Oil is gas oil, also known as red diesel. It is a heavy oil that is commonly used in old boilers, in agriculture or commercially. This, however, is great for your home as it is guaranteed to hold the power to truly ensure that the heat reaches the rafters.



Not much can beat cuddling up on the sofa with a soft throw while watching the television or a film with a hot chocolate in hand. So make sure that you have plenty of thick, plush throws at hand for chillier evenings. Not only do they supply warmth, but they can also complement your general decor. Make a statement with bright and bold patterns or keep things simple with neutral tones. Fabric will depend on your personal taste. Some people will opt for knitted wool throws, while others may like patchwork quilts or fluffy teddy bear fleeces.

Rustic Italian Home Decorating Tips

Have you ever gone on holiday and fell in love with the interior designs? Perhaps you’ve been on holiday and had such a good time that you wanted to bring a little part of it back with you. Whatever your reasons, rustic Italian design isn’t as out of reach as you may think. It’s a type of interior design that can make you feel at home straight away, so it’s no wonder it’s so sought after. If you’ve been inspired by Italian décor, here are some things you can do to give your home an Italian make over.

Select Your Colours
When you want to create an Italian haven, selecting the right colours for your walls is important. Italian design is all about earthy neutral colours. Go for browns, creams and terracotta to be on the safe side, but when you want to throw a bit of life into the room, you can add yellow, gold, olive, sage and muted greens. It’s all about coordinating the colours well. Experiment with what colours complement each other and start your creative journey from there.
