While we're unlikely to get many more days as cold as last Sunday's zero degrees (at least we hope), winter is far from over.
Instead of suffering under piles of blankets until spring, we suggest you pick up one of these stylish space heaters, guaranteed to really warm things up without ruining your apartment's decor.
Unless you're one of the lucky few New Yorkers with a real, working fireplace, this mini space heater , which doesn't take up much space at 12-by-15 inches, may be the closest you'll get. Plus, at $89.98, it costs a lot less than the real thing (and no maintenance or firewood necessary!).
We love all things Dyson (sidenote: the dustbuster and vacuum are amazing!), and if you're okay with splurging, their $416 Hot + Cool Fan Heater is a good buy, considering it looks sleek and lasts beyond winter, transitioning into summer to cool off your soon-to-be-sweatbox (hard to believe, we know, but true). Plus, it doesn't get hot to the touch, so there's no danger of kids or pets hurting their little paws.
This $119.99 portable electric fan compact heater looks like an adorable little robot, and also works as a fan or heater. Besides looking cute, the little "feet" ensure that that it doesn't tip over.
The same company responsible for the charming unit above, Stadler Form, makes this compact heater for $119.99. If your apartment decor is sleek and modern, this should fit right in. The piece, Apple-computer-like in its minimalism, takes up little space (just 5.75-by-14.45 inches) stows away easily. Win, win in NYC.
We're digging the retro look of this space heater, not to mention its $34.99 price tag. This compact heater won't warm your whole apartment, but might be just right for making your bedroom or bathroom just a little bit more cozy. It's also easy to move around from room to room.
