Let's turn our attention to bedrooms and look at cost-effective ways to add warmth. Bed throws have to be the easiest winter warmer when it comes to bedding. Look out for the latest faux fur styles which are soothingly tactile and a great way to keep warm.

Use your usual duvet covers sets and as they name suggests, simply throw an additional layer over the top. Opt for extra large bed throws, one size bigger than your bed , for example if you have a standard 4' 6” double bed then use a king size bed throw. This will allow for plenty of overspill with the throw and help stop cool areas arising – this idea is also great for those who have to fight for their fair share of the duvet each night!

Many bed throws are available in a wide range of sizes, so there's no need to scrimp on size to get the style, pattern and colour you want. Look out for coordinating scatter cushions in faux fur to give your bed a very warm and inviting look this winter. If your feet are always cold neatly fold a bedding blanket across the foot of your bed or resort to the humble hot water bottle to keep your feet toasty warm!
