Fall into Comfort- It’s never too early!

Perhaps a chill hasn’t hit the air quite yet, but fall will be dropping its bags on our doorsteps before we know it. Your home will transition from a paradise with windows open wide; to a hibernation station built to envelop you in comfort as you begin to batten down the hatches. Building a space that wraps you in comfort as the chill sets in can begin from the ground up. A good rug or carpet can be a comforting addition to any budding cozy home.

Gathering around the hearth on a chilly night becomes luxurious with a warm wool rug to snuggle up to.  Its comfort and warmth corner the market when it comes to adorning a space in a seasonably appropriate fashion. If texture is your priority, a Hera Shag featuring long, twisted yarn is not only comfortable, but its quality makes it distinctly different from your average shag rug; a perfect autumnal addition.

With the fall often comes the arduous task of staying ahead of sports related messes. Nothing handles cleats, dirt, and mud better than a hand-knotted rug. Ranking 10/10 on durability, the pile challenges you to hit it with its best shot. If you find yourself more concerned with a rug that can stand up to multiple cleanings, a polypropylene rug is your best bet.  Its supreme color retention ability will assure that no quality will be lost while life revolves around your hectic home.

Customization is key, and the degree of coziness you wish to see in your home can be personalized by any high-end retailer’s vast selection of floor adorning options. Whether you’re on the go, or an indoor fanatic, when it comes to the cooler weather, a rug or carpet can be the perfect accessory.
With tax free weekend on the horizon, beginning August 15, it’s not too early to head on over to one of our Dover Rug & Home locations to pick out the dream flooring option for your home this fall!

Fall Trend Alert: Neutrals

For the past few years, the trendy colors have been those that pop, the brightest of the bright, but for once, this season’s hottest colors don’t steal all of the attention! This fall, the soft hued neutrals are in the spotlight!

These calming colors are showing up everywhere and are particularly popular for area rugs. What makes these colors so irresistible is that they work with virtually all décor and color palettes. A neutral area rug can be incorporated into any room and won’t limit your other design choices._DSC5972b

Another perk of adding a sophisticated neutral to your room is that it can be a source of color. Neutrals are no longer just bland tans! Nowadays, the most popular neutrals have an undertone of any range of beautiful colors. A particularly popular combination this season is grey with an undertone of blue! But, if the undertone isn’t quite enough color for you, you can always add accents throughout the room. Pillows, artwork, and other flexible pieces can add a splash of color at your whim.Capture

The absolute best part of these trendy colors is that they are actually classics! While these clean colors are particularly popular this fall, they never go out of style. Many trendy colors are forgotten about the next season, but neutrals will always be around. Picking a neutral colored area rug is about more than just staying hip this season, it’s about choosing a staple for your home for years to come.
