November is just around the corner, and with it comes longer nights and colder temperatures in your apartment.

November is just around the corner, and with it comes longer nights and colder temperatures. Although it can be enjoyable to curl up in a cozy blanket and sip some hot cocoa, you don’t want your home to be uncomfortably chilly. To avoid feeling the cold in your Prescott Square Apartments home, try out these tips below to create a comfortable transition from fall to winter

Swap Out Your Cold Bedding

While light linens are appropriate for the summertime, they won’t keep you very warm during cold winter nights. As the temperatures go down, wash and store away your summer bedding. Then, replace them with down comforters or wool and flannel blankets. Layering your bedding is especially important in winter: always remember to add a layer or two for extra comfort and warmth. 

Consider Your Seasonal Wardrobe to Keep out the Cold

Now is the perfect time to prep your closet for the upcoming winter weather. Take out any bulky sweaters you stored away last year and pack up your shorts and tank tops. Move sandals to the back of your closet and move your boots to the front. These changes will help you save some space in your closet and make finding those cold-weather items a breeze. 

Bring Out Winter Essentials For Your Apartment

If you have favorite winter essentials, make sure to stock up on your favorites before the cold arrives. Shop for those fuzzy socks that keep your feet toasty or your favorite seasonal tea or coffee blends. 

Reverse Your Ceiling Fan to Keep Out the Cold

If you have a ceiling fan in your apartment, it may have a reverse button. If it does, you can flip that switch and change your fan’s rotation. This change pulls cold air towards the ceiling rather than pushing it down. By simply changing the direction of your fan, you can warm your room and keep a cozy atmosphere throughout your apartment without cranking up the heat. 

Hang Insulated Curtains 

Big windows that provide your apartment with bright, natural sunlight during warmer months. However, during winter, the glass from the window attracts cold and brings a chill into your home. You can keep the warm air in and the cold air out by using insulated curtains. Look for dense fabrics like velvet, tapestry, and Belgian linen that will effectively block cold air from blowing into your room. 

You can make apartment life cozy and comfortable this winter by following these simple tips at Prescott Square Apartments.
