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.

Use accent wall decors to define or separate a distinct area from a larger space. This is perfect for open plan houses to characterize the living area, the dining, reading area etc. There are usually two implementations of accent walls. In most cases, accent wall is a bold color against neutral walls. The other version is using a more dominant color against other wall of the same hue.
