Area Rugs

An area rug can add style and color. They provide a soft area for your feet to rest (as well as your pet). They can add warmth and they help protect your hardwood floors. And, they are now easy to buy on-line. The below items can be ordered through Amazon and delivered direct to your doorstep.

Here are some area rug ideas. They are also available in other colors and multiple sizes.

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to get an area rug pad. These will increase the softness of the carpet and help it last longer. And, the carpet padding will help protect you hardwood floors from scratches and prevent them from sliding.

I highly recommend the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00T6RQGSI” locale=”US” tag=”HWctaccessories-20″]Original Gorilla Grip Area rug pad[/easyazon_link]. It has a thick cushion and it’s non-slip.

Throw pillow are fun. They are my favorite decorating accessory. They add so much life to a room and they mix and match well. Pillows are probably the least expensive way to accessorize and decorate. You can pick your favorite color and style…and then make a change in a few years for a whole new feel for your room. Remember, pillows are transportable, so you can reuse them in other rooms.

Drink Coasters

Coasters are a “must have” on many coffee tables and they are a personalized way to add your taste and flair to the room. While many coffee tables may be treated or glass so that coasters may not be necessary, they still serve as a place for moisture to collect…and you will have less clean-up.

There are tons of coasters out there from super cheap to ultra premium. I tried to choose a few that are more unusual and in the lower to moderate price range. You can buy these all on Amazon.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00SZG3A94″ locale=”US” tag=”HWctaccessories-20″]Natural Sliced Agate Coasters[/easyazon_link]

[easyazon_image align=”right” height=”300″ identifier=”B00SZG3A94″ locale=”US” src=”http://coffeetablebuyingguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/5116n0f2BLRL-2.jpg” tag=”HWctaccessories-20″ width=”300″]I love these as they are pretty and each one is unique. It’s as if you have a natural slice of the earth. These are available in different colors including purple, teal and a mixture of blue, teal, pink, purple. These come in sets of 4. They come with free rubber bumpers to protect your furniture.

They are also great for gifts (and come with a gift box).
