The first is a recycled jute pad that is as dense as can be for its kind. This is a 40 ounce weight, which is on the higher quality level of jute pads. This weight means there is a dense compression of fiber per square yard and this is important for protection and resistance. This pad can be used under all antique rugs that do not tend to slide around, mainly room size ones.

The pad should be slightly less than the length and width of the area rug. You can usually buy already cut to size pads for most standard sized rugs. In some cases, however, you may find that your rug is a unique size. In that case you would want to buy a pad that is larger than your rug and custom cut it to size.

For most home's the fireplace is already the focal point of the room in which it resides. Add more emphasis to the fireplace by placing a beautifully framed mirror above the mantel. This will enlarge the room, and add a reflective surface to the décor you place on the mantle. From candle sticks to seasonal décor, a fireplace begs for a gorgeous mirror to adorn it.

Tips for Using Vacuum Tools - If you choose to use a vacuum tool attachment in lieu of the actual vacuum cleaner itself, take care not to use excessive suction. Many vacuum cleaners allow you to control the amount of suction that is used in such situations; set yours so that it's not sucking too hard on your area rug. Watch Out for the Fringe - The fringed border of an area rug should be avoided when vacuuming. Fringe can fray or even get wrapped up around the beater brush of a vacuum cleaner. Nothing detracts from the appearance of a gorgeous rug quite like stray pieces of fringe, so always use caution.

Add new seasonally inspired pillows to every sofa, bed, chair, chaise, window seat and kitchen bench to bring a new punch to your spaces. If you think about this change year-round you can shop for pillows you love throughout the year. You can also have custom pillow covers made for each season and simply switch those out as you please.

Place vibrantly colored abstract art onto your wall opposite to your seats in order to highlight the colors in your latest space. Hang multi-piece mirrors across the windows or lamps to boost the lighting within the room and make it appear bigger. Place a colorful bouquet inside a modern vase such as the crescent vase, squeezed vase, or circle vase. The contrast between your soft natural flowers and those of the sleek top of the vase is particularly interesting.

This is important since curtains do prohibit some natural light from entering your home. Pairing them with a mirror can help increase the amount of natural light you receive during the day.
