Posted November 04, 2019 06:19:00 Christmas decorations are usually a big part of the Christmas season, but a new study suggests that some are also important for getting a bit of a good Christmas atmosphere.
In a study published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, researchers found that a couple of different types of indoor decorations can help bring a bit more warmth to a room.
One type of indoor decoration, called a chimney, is a piece of wood or glass placed in the centre of a room and decorated with various types of decorations.
The chimney is a common fixture in many homes, especially in warmer climates.
It is made of a mixture of wood and wood glue, or an adhesives such as acrylic and wood gel.
It is often used to help make wooden furniture and also to make decorations for the dining room or the kitchen.
Researchers from the University of Bristol and the University, Manchester also found that if you place a piece in the middle of a chimnys, it will bring a warm sensation to the room.
The chimnies have been known to be a source of warmth for people living in warmer, humid climates.
Researchers found that the chimnying experience was enhanced when the chimney was placed in a room with a warm and humid atmosphere, and when the wood was heated up.
The researchers also found it helped bring a sense of privacy for the people inside the house, as well as bringing people into the house more easily.
In some cases, researchers even found that putting the chimneys in the sun was beneficial, as it enhanced the warmth in the room, but not as much as placing them in the shade.
“There are many ways to improve the chimny experience, but the idea of using the sun to bring a positive effect was intriguing,” said study lead author Dr Sarah Whelan.
“It was surprising to see the effect of a sun-filled chimney in a warm, humid environment and not the shade or a different colour of wood.”
“In a room of this type, it was a little hard to get people to come out because the chimley was so far away, but once they did, it helped to create a much better atmosphere.”
“So for people who are just looking to get into a festive atmosphere, the sun can do wonders, but for those who are looking to add warmth to their rooms and bring people into their homes, a good indoor chimney may be a must-have.”
For those looking to give their indoor Christmas an added bit of warmth, the researchers found it could be helpful to hang a piece from a chimny that has been placed in an outdoor area to create an indoor dining table.
For those wanting to give the experience even more warmth, a piece or two of glass could also be placed on top of a piece, with the glass covering the chimpy.
Dr Whelin said this type of decoration could help bring out a festive feel in a bedroom, where a piece might be placed at the foot of the bed or a table or the chimpys might be hung on the wall.
She said that although the study did not find a connection between the chimnes and the number of times they were used, the results were exciting for the study.
“I would love to see a follow-up study in a different setting where we looked at the effect the different materials have on different types or types of materials, such as wood,” she said.
“So that would be really exciting to find out.”
The research has been published in the journal Science Advances.
