We’ve got your floors covered: country rugs to help you stay warm and save energy

Everyone loves that sleek hard wood floor aesthetic until it’s 11 degrees outside, right? Then we all sort of abandon aesthetic for warmth. But your good friends at Primitive Home Decors are here today to remind you that you don’t have to choose! An energy saving area rug keeps your cold floors warm, and looks darn good doing it.

And that’s not all. According to the U.S Department of Energy, heating accounts for almost half of the average household utility bill. Further studies show that a home can lose 10-20% of its heat through uninsulated flooring.

The trick to ensuring that carpet provides as much heat insulation as possible is to combine it with an energy-efficient pad such as bonded urethane, which can prevent 15 times as much heat escaping as the same thickness of standard fiberglass insulation. (source: Floor Trends).

And if you’ve been thinking about making some changes in 2020 (yeah, we went there!), an energy saving area rug can also dramatically transform any space. We have an incredible selection of rugs including braided cotton, jute, woven, and hooked rugs, and a variety of sizes perfect for the kitchen, transition areas, hallways and entryways, living rooms and bedrooms.

Good things come to those who procrastinate (clearance holiday decor!)

We’re talking about clearance holiday decor today, but first, a story. The other day, I was dazedly pushing my cart down the cereal aisle in the grocery store when I heard someone say, “I can’t believe there are just 18 days until Christmas!”

My jaw dropped.

Wait, what? It was Thanksgiving like, five minutes ago. I’m not ready! 

If you’re anything like me and the holidays have completely thrown you off your game (WHY was the fourth Thursday in November so late this year??), this blog post is for you.

Just put some garland on it.
