Warming up your home this winter: Throws, rugs & the like

12 June 2012 | Helpful tips and hints, Renovating, Trends

As the weather cools down in Queensland, many of us do not relish darting over the cold tiles at night to get to the bathroom! Stripped floorboards are so beautiful in Queensland homes, as do stone and tiled floors, however, when it comes to winter they can be a little chilly on the feet.

So what’s the solution here? Carpet your entire home? Lay down some underfloor heating? Keep the heaters running night and day?

Luckily you don’t have to go to these extreme measures to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

An inexpensive trendy way to warm up your home is to use rugs!

Not only are they quite fashionable, they also help your feet stay warm and really easy to clean.

It doesn’t matter what size your room is or what colour scheme you’re going for, rugs come in all shapes and sizes and they’re a great way to add colour and different textures.

If you find you have an oddly shaped area that you need to cover, never fear! Andersens will custom shape any one our carpets into that perfectly fitting rug.

Perhaps you have wall to wall carpets and your feet aren’t what’s chilling you this winter it may be your bedroom or living areas that need a bit of winter warmth.

One of the most cost-effective (and not to mention stylish!) ways to add warmth to your living areas is to add a throw.

Whether it’s to drape over your bed or to snuggle into in your media room, like rugs, throws come in all different shapes, sizes and textures.

They can add a whole new dimension to your winter interior style. Look out for coordinating scatter cushions in faux fur to give your room a very warm and inviting look this winter.

Of course if you’re looking for that perfect floor to match your walls and furniture, why not try iDesign?
