As the cold winter days and dark winter nights stretch on, it is always pleasing to have a cosy home to enjoy and relax in. With a few simple additions to your park home, you can transform your space into a warm and welcoming retreat, even on the coldest of winter days.
The UK Government estimates that around 85,000 households live in park homes in England, and the number is increasing.

With this in mind, we take a look at some simple and quick ideas to make your home cosier during winter.
1. Add fresh flowers
Introducing fresh flowers can instantly add a touch of warmth and colour to your park home. Seasonal blooms of reds, oranges and yellows add warmth and a sense of calm. Visually pleasing, flowers transform a room with a beautiful visual display and create an inviting aroma.
2. Adding throws and cushions
During the cold winter months, layers of soft furnishings are not only cosy to snuggle under but also create a sense of warmth within the home. Adding fleece blankets, knitted throws or plush materials like faux fur add both texture and warmth to your space. Decorative, fluffy cushions and pillows add to the warmth, especially when opting for fabrics of deep reds and oranges.
3. Use warm colours
Earthy tones like terracotta, deep reds and browns will instantly add a sense of warmth. Whether you are adding cushions, throws or other decorative objects, or redecorating part of your home, always consider the effect colour choices will have on your space. Avoid blues and greens as this will have the opposite effect, making your space visually colder.
4. Get baking
The aroma of freshly baked goods, whether from bread, biscuits or cakes, always creates a warm, homely feel that is both inviting and welcoming. Winter is the perfect time to introduce apple pies, cinnamon rolls and gingerbread biscuits. Be as creative as you wish, and maybe share your goods with the neighbours.
