We’re now all settled into our new house and I’ve been enjoying getting the place all nice and cosy ready for winter! The house is Victorian so the ceilings are really high and we have huge sash windows in each room, which sounds lovely but these quirky characteristics mean that it can get a bit chilly! We also have wood-effect laminate flooring throughout and minimal insulation in our original slate roof, so we needed to find ways to keep ourselves warm and feeling cosy – especially for winter!
