Although log cabins are generally environmentally friendly and can retain warmth with sufficient insulation and good positioning, there are other tricks to be implemented which can help maintain a well-heated yet comfortable structure.
The addition of yellow tones to the garden cabin room will give the impression of warmth, while the light emitted by this sort of shade is a way to enhance the natural light of the space. Well-padded furniture such as sofas and armchairs create a comfortable and warm environment, which can be further enhanced by a selection of plump cushions and cosy blankets. Some may choose luxury upholstery fabric to enhance the cabin’s overall appearance, although more budget-friendly options in your chosen colour scheme are just as snug.
Adding thick rugs to the floor will not only reduce drafts rising through the floorboards, but provide a warm, dry surface to walk on. Other DIY draft excluders fitted beneath doors or around windows can drastically reduce the amount of cold air that can find its way into outdoor huts and gazebos. Thick, plush curtains, for example, can be aesthetically pleasing while retaining insulation.
Room dividers, bookcases and wall hangings are other nifty ways to block the chill while keeping the cabin looking stylish. You may also find it useful to dedicate an area of your log cabin to set up an area equipped with tea and coffee making facilities.
