Consider Layering

Filling your tiny home with various layers, layers that help absorb heat instead of letting it escape your home, is one of the simplest ways you can make your home warmer. Moving from structural changes to aesthetics, layering is a great way to improve temperatures and your space’s appearance. You can invest in insulated curtains, rugs, and blankets or simply insulate your body with more layers. The right materials can do a lot to ensure your home remains snug and comfortable.

Parking Location
