Many people love Christmas for the joy and memories that are associated with it; however, when it comes to decorating, it’s no news that it is also a period of abnormal stress.
Decorating a home for Christmas can be as simple as a single wreath on the front door, to rivers of shining, multi-coloured lights, a tree, and revolving displays that can be set up days in advance or in a single evening.
Whichever approach you choose, consider the follow effortless ways a rug enhances your room
Switching colour theme
Christmas is usually filled with red, white, green and traces of other colours. The part that stresses most people out is trying to keep the colours matched and at a bare minimum. When decorating the rule of thumb is to create an equal balance of interest for the eye. Meaning if you should get bright-coloured rug, neutral coloured furniture and décor would be the perfect complement and vice versa.
With this in mind, you will discover that changing the mood of your room can be as easy as swapping between two rugs. Consider buying two different styles for your living room: one for summer and one for winter.
Not many people are comfortable wearing slippers or socks indoors, if you fall under this category you may wish to add rugs to certain parts of your room so your feet enjoy more freedom, especially with hard or cold floors. A rug also feels softer on your skin with a flexibility which allows the carpet to absorb some of the impacts of your footstep.
Whether it is used as a temporary or permanent fix, rugs are the perfect concealer for worn out patches or floor stains that you are not ready to deal with at the moment. They perform a perfect job of keeping things neat and they need no explanation - just ensure you do not cover up dents that could pose a health hazard.
Keep things Connected
Wherever they are placed, rugs make a room look connected and cohesive. It has a way of dividing up a room and changing its focal point. Simply add a rug to the dining room or someplace strategic in the bedroom and you will get the very same effect. It feels good and cozy; visually, it attaches every other furniture to the floor.
Whether you have an in-depth knowledge on arts or not, modern rugs are often so beautiful, you might be tempted to hang one on the wall - right next to the Christmas tree.
It’s worth considering because you get the same impact as an upscale art at a fraction of the price.
