Recent carpeting trends show that different textures are coming into style, so don’t be afraid of unusual weaves or colours. If you’re not sure, you can always take a sample home and test it out against your furniture and accessories. Choose a pure-wool carpet for longevity or a synthetic-blend weave if your budget is a little tighter.

Rugs

The good thing about rugs is that they not only add a little extra warmth to the overall room temperature, but they also personality to a room. Adding a rug to a space is like putting on a sweater - by adding an extra layer, you prevent more heat from escaping.

Rugs are great warmers over any surface; even carpet. Stay in style by going for eye catching designs, bold colours and clashing textures. Feel free to mix it up and change your rugs according to the Season. Ziporah Lifestyle adores CC Tapis for their unique and eye-catching designs, quality manufacturing and the ageless and classic creations that they produce.

Underlays

What’s underneath your floor is just as important as what you see on top. When you choose a good insulation, the material on top adopts the same heat-retaining properties. Cork, foam, rubber or wool are great for this and also reduce noise between floors. Plus, they stop your flooring masterpiece from moving and buckling underfoot!

Cork is also a popular covering on top of an underlay, it adds a warmly unique feel to any room and is now a sustainable product in most cases.

Draft protectors

Temperatures across your floor can drop significantly when cool outside air blows over it, so blocking possible draft points is really important in the colder months. You don’t need to worry about rehanging doors though - simply position mats or rugs in front of doorways with drafty gaps. For doors that lead directly outside, try something more substantial like a draft-stopper.

Under the floor heating

If those winter blues are really getting you down, and you have the money and time to spare, the ultimate in ground warmth is installing an under-the-floor heating system. With this heating in your home, you can keep any floor aesthetic you want, even tiles, and still maintain ground warmth.

Look no further for a warm winter! Curl up under our Sempre Deluxe throw with a Vulcan or Vesta rug on the floor.
