The winter months bring longer nights, colder temperatures and, for many, the concern of increasing energy bills. Some would expect that a park home might be less energy-efficient than a traditional house, but a park home can be just as warm and cosy, especially with these tips for new movers…

Buying a modern park home doesn’t mean having to pull on an extra jumper to keep the cost down. With lower running costs, new park home buyers can invest the money saved in reduced energy bills on decorating their new home to match their style. In this article, we’ll look at some simple ideas to make your new home cosier and more inviting, without having to use more gas or electricity!

Add throw blankets and pillows

The simplest way to cosy up your new park home is to add warm layers. When the temperature drops, you want to wrap yourself up and relax on the sofa. Why not add some fleece blankets or knitted throws to the backs of your sofa so when it gets colder in the winter afternoons and evenings, they are ready and waiting to keep you warm. Opting for decorative, fluffy pillows on your sofa will also boost its aesthetic appeal!

Add fresh flowers to your space

For a more homely space, try adding natural foliage or easy-to-care plants on windowsills, shelves or ledges to add instant vibrancy to your space. Plants and flowers will not only help in adding colour and interest to the room but also bring the outdoors indoors. This will also add a sense of calm and serenity to your new home!

Layer with rugs

To make your bedrooms feel cosier, try covering any uncarpeted areas of your home with a plush rug to make things a little more comfortable. Adding a large rug can change the feel of any room, not only will it add style, but it will also make your space look and feel cosier. The softer the rug, the warmer it’ll make your home feel!

Most brand-new park homes are sold fully furnished with all the mod-cons included. Moving in a furnished home saves precious time that you could spend decorating your new space with personal belongings and trinkets. Winter is also the perfect time to add hints of warmth in accessories such as cushions, candles and frames, all of which lift the light and warmth of a room, creating a cosier aspect.

Channel your inner baker

There’s nothing like the aroma of warm baked cookies to get you excited about the colder months. If the weather’s got you feeling low, try baking up a batch of classic shortbread cookies to fill your home with a delightful aroma. You could even use your home-baked treats as an introduction gift to say hello to your new neighbours.
