Hard wood and even marble floors, although a plus in home design, tend to be slippery and can cause mishaps. With infants crawling and kids running around, it is not far from reality that something might spill or a small toy might be dropped or left behind. And so, it is also highly possible that somebody might accidentally slip and get hurt especially in areas with high foot traffic and daily indoor activity. Safety-wise, this is where area rugs come in. Area rugs are good additions to hard wood and marble floors. Although they tend to shift and slide because of their temporary-installed nature, using a rug pad or even an anti-slip spray to prevent it from moving from one place to another will surely decrease impact of accidental falls. This also prevents unwanted sliding or shifting of furniture such as dining tables and sofas.

This is dense enough to protect the floor from scratches and indentations. Make sure that the felt rug pad is a 40 ounce, referring to the amount of fiber there is per square yard of pad. The higher the ounce, the more dense the carpet pad. If the rug tends to slip, then a felt and natural rubber rug pad is ideal. Here, the key is to make sure it is natural rubber as opposed to the chemical sprays that look and feel like rubber but actually could severely harm the floor.

Update your exterior entry way with a new welcome mat, one that can handle the fall/winter traffic and that coordinates with your home. Blanket your rooms with warmth. On your bed and sofa, or on a window seat, add a warm blanket in a fall color that coordinates with your decor (think warm oranges, reds, plums, browns, greens or deep gold tones). This is both practical and beautiful-adding a new color to an often-used living space creates an instant update. If you are changing your entire bedding for the season, consider changing your bed skirt, too.

The size of your throws is also important, though it is not a real quality indicator it is something to look out for. A lot of manufacturers are making everything smaller to cut cost and this has permeated into the world of home decor pillows as well. Though this is somewhat of an individual choice depending on your design, typically large pillows look better and give a less busy and cluttered looked when layered together. You will usually want to go for something that is 16 - 20 inches or more unless you have a specific need for smaller pillows.

Home accents are the things such as bookcases, magazine racks, storage, shelving, storage cabinets, jewelry amoires, pillows, mirrors, coat racks, clocks, wall arts, accent tables and many more. These pieces will transform a dry, dull and lifeless home into something alive, vibrant and chic. Most homeowners would just buy furniture and would usually forget to put the right accent that goes with them. A sofa set needs the right centrepiece on its center table. The bedroom needs the right mirror that blends with the room's theme or motif. An ordinary living room will have a sophisticated and modern look if it is accented with a wall art. A study room can also have a modern flair. There are stylish and contemporary shelving or storage pieces that can create a modern look to an ordinary study room. A contemporary bathroom can also be transformed with a new look when it has the right accents such as a mirror and a decorative wall art.
