7 winter essentials to get your home cosy for the chilly season
Winter is here! To keep your home as snug and warm as possible while you’re lounging around indoors, it’s time to dust off your portable heaters, get the electric blankets out of storage and check off these winter essentials to beat the cold this chilly season.
How many cosy weather essentials do you already have from this list, and which ones are you missing? Read on to find out.
1. Turn up the heat
Perfect for keeping small spaces like studies and bathrooms toasty, a portable heater is one of winter's must-have luxuries. Plus, you’ll save on your electricity bill by heating only the room you’re in. Check out the range at Noel Leeming and Farmers to find the best option for your home.
2. Create the ultimate cosy nook
There’s no better feeling than curling up on the couch with a hot chocolate during freezing winter nights. Style your living room and bedrooms with faux fur throws, tassel embellished blankets and a scattering of velvet cushions from Bed Bath N’ Table, M.M Linen for an extra cosy touch.

3. Rug up in style
If you don’t have carpeted floors, combat cold tiles and wooden floors with a statement rug from Coco Republic and Farmers. They work wonders in any room, providing warmth underfoot whilst amping up the aesthetic, too.
4. Hibernate in your own haven
Transform your bedroom into a cocoon of cosy textures! Go back to basics by adding a heated mattress topper – it’s a total game changer. Next, switch your summer linen for a set of flannelette sheets. Top it all off with a weighted blanket or shearling throw, and your winter retreat is ready. Country Road, Bed Bath N’ Table, David Jones have everything you need to transition your bedroom.
Bonus tip: a hot water bottle will keep you toasty all winter long - nana was onto something here.

5. Lounge in snuggly sleepwear
Let’s be honest – winter is all about plush robes, fluffy slippers and flannelette pyjamas!
Stay cosy and cute in the softest sleepwear, and for colder nights, wrap yourself up in plush fleece bathrobes to keep snug. To finish off the ultimate winter ensemble, slip into a pair of slippers and prepare to take comfort to the next level.
6. Get techy with more heated gadgets
While a portable heater and electric blanket are winter home must-haves, these other gadgets make worthy investments too. A heated towel rack or rail is a true everyday luxury – just think about warm fluffy towels at the ready when you need them. It takes a mere few minutes to heat up, and comes with timer options too.
For the ultimate winter indulgence, why not purchase a heated foot spa? Soothe your tired soles (and soul!) and revel in pure bliss.
7. Luxuriate in scents
Smell plays a big part in setting the mood, and certain scents like lavender, ylang ylang, or eucalyptus can inspire calm and mindfulness.
While candles and home fragrances are convenient, why not splurge on an essential oil diffuser? The combination of soft, multicoloured lighting and delicately fragranced mist creates a relaxing ambience.
