Hard surface flooring is ideal for beach homes. It handles humidity, sand and the indoor/outdoor lifestyle coastal living is known for. Area rugs will also enhance your coastal decor, while simultaneously softening your step and warming floors during the cooler months.
Choose the Right Area Rugs to Enhance Your Coastal Decor
Make a list. First, make a list of areas that will benefit the most from the addition of woven rugs. Typically, we recommend rugs for:
- Anchoring dining room and/or living room furniture.
- Protecting high-traffic areas, such as hallways, stairways and entryways.
- Padding the areas you use to stand for longer periods of time — in front of the sink, kitchen island, food prep areas, etc.
- Alongside beds so you have a soft, warm landing when you get out of bed each morning.
Measure these areas carefully and “practice” using a folded sheet so your rugs are appropriately sized.
Budget wisely. You get what you pay for, so spend as much as your budget allows when buying cotton woven rugs for your home. You’ll be repaid in terms of aesthetics, durability and longevity.
Buy rugs you love. Rugs are like art for the floor, so select rugs that you’ll love to look at today, tomorrow and for years to come.
