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.

This just in! New Galvanized Stocking Hangers

We’re excited to share a new option in our beloved holiday decor collection – galvanized stocking hangers! (Shop the collection now!)

The galvanized stocking hangers finish offers a traditional rustic look that coordinates well with other metal finishes, and stone and wood fireplace mantles. Sold by the set of 4 or 6. More on the way!

These sturdy and sophisticated hangers allow you to hang your stockings on a ledge or mantle without using nails. (If you’re anything like me, you don’t dare hammer a nail into a lovely piece of wood unless it’s absolutely necessary.) And the stocking hangers make stocking redistribution easy when you add new members (or pets– just me?) to the family.

Our existing collection of stocking hangers  are in stock ready to ship right now, including the Star and Snowman hangers, and our Red Wagon and Red Woody stocking hangers, introduced last season and currently 23% off!

Here’s a fun poll question: when do you start decorating for Christmas? After Halloween? After Thanksgiving? Leave it out all year long?

Have a great week!
