How to Stay Warm in Your Apartment at The Daley at Shady Grove Metro

No matter where you live in Maryland, winter weather can be uncomfortable and outright annoying. Here are some great cold-weather tips to help keep you warm and cozy throughout the winter months in your apartment at Daley Shady Grove.

One of the first things to think about is winterizing your apartment by first eliminating those pesky drafts. Even though you have your heat on in your apartment, a breeze can quickly chill things out and not in a pleasant way.

Make sure to test your windows for small cracks by placing a tissue near suspected cracks and see if it flutters. You can fix any broken seals with some caulking. Or speak with your superintendent about checking to see if they can caulk any gaps that may be visible outside the building.

Using curtains to cover up is another excellent way to winterize your apartment. Consider using curtains with a blackout panel; this is an extra layer of insulating fabric. Consider using this alternative just in your bedroom, or maybe only have the curtains drawn during certain hours of the day; they come in a variety of colors so they can add extra style as well as warmth.

Winter Weather in Your City

Stay on top of the weather patterns, trends, highs, and lows in Rockville, MD; this should be extremely easy with all the apps and weather stations providing continuous weather updates and forecasts.

Ways to Stay Warm

There are numerous ways to stay warm in the winter weather while avoiding overheating.

  • Stretchy fleece neck warmer.
  • Wear layers, and remember to use a “wicking” polyester undershirt versus cotton.
  • Try flannel-lined pants. Wear long underwear, sweaters, and even caps to keep your head warm.
  • Slippers (rubber soles make a big difference).

Other warming alternatives include but are not limited to:

Try a soft, cozy pair of warm socks. But, remember to change your socks! Feet sweat, which can make you cold. Wool socks will keep your feet from sweating. Warm feet help you sleep better.

You can use an electric blanket with a built-in timer or you could use the trusted and safer hot water bottle option with a wool or fleece cover. Lay the heating pad in your bed for 15 minutes before getting in should do the trick.

Candles are a great way to create a warm and comforting atmosphere. There are a lot of options that offer great scents to match the season.

Create a little comfort nook in your apartment. You can do this in a warm and cozy space in your apartment. To convert your comfortable alcove into a place to hunker down in, combine all of the above ideas.

Just knowing that you have this place to feel safe, warm, and at home will have you feeling ready to survive the winter cold in no time.


Remember to stay active! Keep moving around. Cooking is a great way to keep busy while generating some good heat throughout your apartment. As it is said, cooking for others makes cooking more enjoyable, so invite the people in your close circle over for some food. The more, the merrier and the warmer!
