It will make your home feel warmer—without touching the thermostat.
I live on the second floor of a New York City apartment, and every year when winter hits, the wind blows in the front door, right up the stairs, and under the door to my apartment. The small gap under the door that's not even visible the rest of the year suddenly becomes a big problem. As a makeshift solution, I've even resorted to piling spare bath towels along the bottom of the door to keep the chilly air out, but this year, it's time to invest in an official door draft stopper.
Door draft stoppers come in two common forms, either a fabric-covered snake that sits along the edge of the door or a silicone piece that attaches to the bottom of the door and fills in the gap between the door and the floor. While it's generally not the most attractive home accessory, we've picked out some of the best-looking ones below—and they're all much more attractive than a pile of bath towels on the floor. Aesthetics aside, these door draft stoppers vow to keep the cold air out so your entire home will feel warmer, without bumping up your heating bill.
