Not to jump the gun, but winter IS coming. We get a tiny slice of a season called Fall, but after that, we’re headed straight for the snowy white, skiing and cottage season some of us love. You’re going to be spending more time inside your home, and, with Christmas and New Years coming, so are your friends and family, and you may want to update or just change things up a bit.

An easy way to change a room or two’s décor for the holidays is to get a new area rug.

A rug is an ideal place to start when you’re decorating because it helps to set the theme for the room. Are you going for a bright, clean look? A solid white area rug with a short, smooth pile would work. Or maybe you’d enjoy a festive look to complement your Christmas tree? Then you could go for a thick, plush area rug in a bright shade like green or red.

Once you decide on the area rug, the whole room comes together as you use it for inspiration: You’ll see a reindeer ornament that would go perfectly over your fireplace or a throw that matches your theme.

What’s more, you don’t have to worry about finding the exact rug shape and size because at Flooring Superstores, we can create a custom area rug out of any broadloom carpet we carry!

Wondering how to choose a broadloom? Here’s what you need to consider:

  • What kind of room will the rug be in?
  • What does the furniture look like and where will it sit?
  • How much are you willing to spend?
  • How much wear and tear is likely to occur on the rug?
I also have some placement tips for you via Emily Henderson, who wrote an informative and entertaining blog on the subject. Read it here. 

So come in and let us help you choose or create an area rug to keep you cozy and pull everything together this winter!
