We put our home on the market last November, which by the way is not the right time to sell since everyone is in holiday mode. Now that spring is almost here, we’re hoping for many more bites on the house. One thing that’s important when selling your home is clearing out the clutter. Our garage has turned into a storage unit, which has left us plenty of room for staging.
Staging a home is a must and allows you to highlight your home’s strengths, and downplay it’s weaknesses. Our living room needed a little sprucing up so I teamed up with Natural Area Rugs to review their Wellbourne Dhurrie Wool Rug.
After removing extra pieces of furniture and clearing off the fireplace mantel, the room looks perfect. We’ve received several compliments on the living room staging already! HGTV suggests floating your furniture away from walls, and mentions that actually makes the space look bigger.
I found more great home staging advice on stagingandredesign.com, where they break down the rules about area rugs. They mention area rugs smaller than 6×9 should be avoided unless it cuts into the walking space of the room. In our case, we are using the Wellbourne Wool Area Rug in 4×6 to avoid an oversized rug.
We really like the added benefit of this hand woven wool rug in our living room space. I also appreciate that it’s reversible for twice the design benefits. It’s comfortable to walk on and well made.
Natural Area Rugs has an abundance of options from Jute to Shag to Wool, and even stair treads. There are many designs as well to suit everyone’s taste. Another wonderful benefit to the site is that they offer Fast & Free Shipping on all orders to the Contiguous 48 States, and with no minimum purchase amount! Rugs are awkward shapes for shipping and can be costly on other websites, but Natural Area Rugs takes care of that cost for you.
