Rid cold feet with rug warmth



Rainy season comes with a cold. Not just in the atmosphere but also on the floor, such that makes your feet uncomfortable when you walk around your home barefoot.

Someone might argue that they would wear slippers around the home to avoid direct contact with the floor, but it might interest you to know that research has shown that walking barefooted can produce nearly instant changes in a variety of physiological measures, improve sleep, reduce pain, decrease muscle tension and lower stress.


So yes, walking around in your home barefooted is therapeutic, but how do you save your feet from cold especially during this rainy season? Your best safe will be to rug your space.

The easiest, cheapest and safest solution is a rug, because not only can a rug change the look and mood of a space but also warm your home and feet while you walk barefooted, protect your floor and reduce the noise that comes with direct contact with the floor.

So amidst the cold weather, a rug is essential for the floors, as it would help to warm your space, soften your floor and effortlessly transform your space.

What Part Of Your Home Do do You Need To Rug?
Your Livingroom – A rug can anchor your living room, define it, and add warmth. Whether it’s a total coverage rug or area rug, it would warm up the living room where you spend most of your time before going to bed.

Home Office Space – Studies have shown that the main cause of distraction at work is noise. So while working from home, other family members are most likely to be involved in other distracting activities. Hence the need to rug your home office space as it will not only make your workspace cozy but also provide soundproofing for noise coming in and out as well as absorb sound.
