Although we’re still in the middle of fighting off the summer heat, we can’t deny that we’re getting closer to switching seasons—in just a few weeks, it will be time for us to bust out our raincoats and umbrellas again. While the rain can be a hassle when you aren't at home, there's no contest that it's the best type of weather when all you have on your to-do list is laying down on your bed. Get ready to embrace the wet and bleak forecast with these ideas: 

1. Switch out bed linens. 

As soon as the temperatures drop, be ready to trade in the lightweight sheets for thick comforters or duvets. This is also a great time to flip your mattress, replace pillows that could no longer be revived and find a linen spray to prep your bed for curling up in cold weather. 

2. Change the other fabric pieces around the home, too. 

This includes runners, tablecloths and your drapes! The rainy season is the perfect time to experiment with dark, rich and jewel-toned pieces that bring the mood down during the summer. 

3. Shop for sweet-smelling candles. 

Nothing says bed weather like the warm glow of a scented candle. Experiment with scents that remind you of  happy days like cinnamon, vanilla or whatever type of aroma you prefer.

4. Prep doorways with mud trays. 

As much as you enjoy singing and playing in the rain, mud and puddle water is not welcome inside the home. Once the wet weather strikes, make sure you have trays by the door to catch the grime from people's boots. 

5. Create a makeshift coffee and tea station. 

It's safe to say that everyone loves to indulge in a hot cup of joe or cocoa when it's cold out. Be prepared for any kind of craving by laying it all out on your bedside table—have an array of teas ready to be brewed or a coffee machine for a late-night latte.
