There’s nothing worse than getting out of bed in the winter, and stepping onto a cold floor. It starts your day of with a shock, when in reality, being comfortable and warm when you get up can contribute to you being able to come around slowly, which can put you in a better mood to face the rest of the day. However, it’s not the only reason that getting a rug is a good idea for your home. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your living room, bedrooms, or dining room, there are many ways for you to use rugs to improve your home.
Rugs to warm your rooms
First of all, lets start by looking at the warmth aspect. Having a rug on a wooden floor is lovely, especially in bedrooms. It’s a warm spot that your feet can find in the morning, and with the huge range of colours and patterns available, there’s sure to be one that looks great in your bedroom. Kids bedrooms get cold too, and a nice patterned rug next to their bed can pull together the look of the room, as well as being a place for them to warm their feet.
Creating a comfy spot in the lounge
In the lounge, choosing a rug should be one of your first considerations. Many people choose to have a rug in front of the fire, and this is a comfy spot to sit and warm up at the end of a cold day out. Considering the décor of your room is important though. If you want to make the room look bigger, choosing a plain rug is best, although many who want to make their rooms cosier choose a patterned rug that complements the colour scheme they have in their room already.
Rugs can go everywhere!
If you’re lucky enough to have a nice dining room or study, rugs can work really well here too. Especially for dining rooms, where you may be entertaining, an eye catching rug can set off a room in style, and your guests will not only be impressed by your choice, but the room you’re entertaining in will likely feel more welcoming too.
In short, there’s not a room in the house that can’t benefit from a well-chosen rug. There are many patterns, styles and materials to choose from, so when you’re looking for something to improve the look of your home, a rug is a good place to start!
