Winter has already set in. So it’s time to prepare for the onset of frost. And now we are not talking about fur coats and felt boots. Today we will talk about things, thanks to which not only winter evenings are not terrible, but also with the help of which you can warm up. We have prepared a whole selection of the main purchases for the winter and even figured out what to do on cold evenings.
First you need to take care of home comfort and warmth. If stationary batteries do not warm, then it is better to purchase an electric assistant. Heaters not only save during an unexpected shutdown of heating, but also maintain a comfortable temperature.
Selecting the right device is easy. With all their diversity, heaters are divided into three types. Oil — a classic and familiar device to us since childhood. The principle of its operation is based on heating the oil, the heat from which is transferred to the body, and then to the air. The heating element of this type of device is located inside, the heater is stable and turns itself off when it reaches the set temperature. Therefore, it can safely be called safe. The only thing is that the device consumes quite a lot of electricity.
There are also convectors. They work on the principle of natural air circulation: they heat the room with the help of a stream of warm air that exits through special openings. The main advantage of such devices is that they quickly and evenly heat the room and look stylish in the interior. At the same time, they, like oil ones, are automatically turned off.
For those who do not use heaters constantly, there are fan heaters. A warm stream of air will warm the room in a few minutes. And if you turn off the heating, you get a regular fan. However, such a device has a drawback — it makes noise.
When choosing, pay attention to the main parameters: the area of \u200b\u200bthe room, power, stability and the possibility of automatic shutdown. You can choose the right one in the catalog.
We create comfort
We figured out the features of the choice of heaters, the room was heated, you can go further. The key to a perfect winter evening is to sit in a warm house, read your favorite book and drink delicious tea. We are sure that you will choose to read yourself, but we will help you with tea. A good teapot will guarantee excellent tea drinking. We wrote about how to choose a suitable kettle on our website. And if you already know which device you need, you can choose it here.
Making tea is half the battle. In order not to break away from fascinating reading, it is better to pour a warming drink into a thermo mug. Their variety today is very large, so you need to choose based not only on taste. It is best to buy thermal mugs that keep the temperature of the drink for about four hours. For home use, mugs with the most common closure system are suitable. If you plan to take a thermal mug to work or a walk, then choose lightweight models with a screw-on lid with a special lock.
We decorate the house
Everyone knows that comfort is created from the little things. Winter is a great time to update your home textiles. A new blanket, bedding, a warm blanket and even curtains will help you spend the winter in warmth and comfort. And lovers of technological innovations will be delighted with the increasingly popular electric blankets and sheets. Heated textiles are a must for those who are cold and like to cover themselves with a whole stack of blankets.
We create culinary masterpieces
With the onset of cold weather, I especially want to create and delight loved ones with fragrant and delicious homemade cakes. To make the dough perfect, it is better to choose a suitable mixer or blender with different attachments, as well as various kitchen accessories. We have already talked about how to choose the right blender, so we share brief tips on how not to get confused in all the variety of mixers. There are several types of mixers on the market today. The simplest is manual. It is lightweight and not very powerful. Great for beating eggs, batter or cream. It is budget-friendly, easy to clean and does not take up much space in the kitchen.
His older brother is a stand mixer. This is the same hand mixer, but more powerful and with a special stand that will free your hands. It is enough to put the ingredients in the bowl and turn on the device. During operation, both the bowl and whisks rotate. A stationary mixer is a versatile and medium-priced option.
For those who cook a lot and often, a planetary mixer is suitable. It is the most powerful of the models and has a special nozzle. As you might guess from the name, it rotates according to the principle of planetary rotation — both around its own axis and around the bowl. This feature allows you to knead the ideal quality dough in the shortest time.
Having determined the type of mixer you need, you can study other additional characteristics. To choose the right device, you should pay attention to the power, size and material of the bowl, nozzles and modes.
In addition to pies and cakes, you can also bake bread in winter. After all, the smell of warm freshly baked bread with a crispy crust is another component of comfort. If you have not chosen a bread machine yet, then read our material about it.
Resting at home
When the weather is bad outside, you have to entertain yourself at home.
The first thing that comes to mind is watching a movie. And rightly so, do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the new product or watch your favorite movie. For film lovers, we have a separate material on how to choose a TV. For avid moviegoers who prefer to watch movies on the big screen, it’s time to move to the next level and buy a home theater projector. When choosing, you will have to pay attention to many nuances: brightness, color reproduction, contrast, resolution, installation method, connectors and various interfaces. For the home, it is better to buy an LCD model with a brightness of more than 500 lumens / m2. Thanks to them, you can enjoy viewing in both bright and dark rooms. You can also choose a model from 100 to 250 lumens / m2, but then you will have to watch all the films in the dark.
An alternative to watching movies can be playing a console. At the same time, video games themselves have long moved from the category of entertainment to an everyday assistant. They help not only to get close to acquaintances, but also to find new friends, develop character and, finally, improve your knowledge of the English language. To choose a suitable prefix, read our material and go to the catalog.
If games are not for you, then reading books will brighten up winter evenings. E‑books have long been a practical replacement for paper publications. They save space and also allow you to take several books with you at once in one device. Of course, we have not forgotten and prepared the material so that you do not get confused in the variety of devices.
Getting ready for the summer
“Prepare the sleigh in the summer and the cart in the winter” is a well-known proverb. That is why winter is the best time to start getting in shape. When the weather is bad outside, you can play sports at home. To do this, we have a whole section with all kinds of simulators and other fitness equipment. There are even mats for yoga and other sports.
Winter is no reason to despair. We are sure that with such a list of entertainment and devices at home, it will be very good. But do not forget that there is also a lot of interesting things waiting outside the window. So dress warmly and go for pleasant walks, winter games and adventures.
