Wintertime can be tough. As if doubling-up on clothing layers and commuting in the cold wasn't hard enough, most of us have frigid apartments to look forward to coming home to at the end of the day.

But fret not my chilly friends, there are plenty of affordable, and not to mention super stylish, ways to warm up your freezing apartment when your space heater just isn't cutting it. From faux fur throws to thermal-insulated curtains, here are some toasty decor ideas that'll warm up your ice-cold apartment this season.

Faux Fur Throws

Nothing feels more safe and snug than being wrapped up in a thick faux fur blanket in front of the TV. Affordable and stylish, furry throws also look insanely chic when strewn across your sofa.

Shaggy Rugs

A good shaggy rug is a gift that keeps on giving. Not only will a plush area rug instantly make your place appear warm and cozy, it'll keep your tootsies nice and toasty when you're up and about making snack runs.

Ambient Lighting

Few things set a cozy tone for a room like warm, ambient lighting. Whether with candles or string lights, a soft glow in your living room can work wonders for making your place feel cushy.

Plush Throw Pillows

Of course, you can't have a truly comfortable apartment without some soft throw pillows to snuggle up to—the fluffier the better. (Bonus points for a sweater-weave cushion.)

Blackout Curtains

Okay, we know these aren't the most attractive window treatments on the planet, but blackout curtains are made with heavier fabrics to help keep cold air from coming into your apartment—transforming your freezing apartment into a warm(er) haven in no time (not to mention, it'll help your heating bill).
