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.

A spring favorite: Lemon pepper

Hello and happy spring! Does it even feel like spring where you are? We’ve had snow, flooding rains, hail and heavy winds all in the last few days! Sometimes when the weather outside doesn’t reflect the season, it’s fun to brighten up the inside with shades of spring– and lemon pepper can do just that.
