When it comes down to it, most homeowners do little more than turn on the heat when trying to keep warm during the winter. However, some suggest that improving the aesthetic appeal of a room can have generate a kind of mental warmth, according to The Auburn Citizen.

Interior designer Jessica Franklin suggests that the three important factors in creating this atmosphere during the winter are colors, lighting and window treatments.

Throw pillows can be effective in creating splashes of color in the room, while light bulbs can be strategically arranged to reflect onto paints. She suggests that any homeowner looking to brighten a space should try and change the color of the walls, because a shift in hue can be affordable and have a lasting impact.

For winter window treatments, she recommends fabric shades.

"Window treatments - think soft, velvety, suede materials and colors for the winter - can easily, and affordably, be changed out with light airy sheers in the summer," she told the news provider.

Horizontal fabric shades may be particularly suitable for the winter, because they are available in a variety of colors and styles. These versatile window treatments are sure to bring a new feeling of warmth into any room.
