Stay Warm

By Tina Howell

Winter has finally arrived Los Angeles last week. We had a week of rainy, windy, and cold days. With the interior temperature dropping in the night time, efficient heating and insulation is very important. There are several ways to stay warm while improving the use of energy. The solutions include: sealing gaps at doors, windows, and walls; scheduling energy audit with local energy companies; closing unused rooms; installing storm shutters, and energy efficient glass.

If you are seeking alternative ways to stay warm, you might also consider introducing colors to your living space for the winter season. To boost interior temperature physiologically, you could do any of the followings and add excitements to the short, grey winter days:

  • Placing paintings of warm colors on walls, including shades of red, orange, and purple could create a warmer and more festive atmosphere.
  • Placing aerial rugs could be a good temporary solution for tiles or wooden flooring.
  • Painting one or two walls of the room that has the lowest temperature and the least amount of light in a bright and warm color.
  • Adding decorative wall stickers could instantly add a new view to a room.
