As the last few leaves trickle from the treetops and the air turns chilly, we seek warmth and comfort in our homes more than any other time of the year. There’s nothing quite like sinking into the sofa with the fire blazing, or reading to candlelight while the snow falls outside.
Our surroundings have a big impact on our happiness at home. And especially, how cosy we feel. There are lots of things we can do with our décor to create the idea of warmth, and making the right choice of flooring is one of them. Taking up a large area in any room, the floor can have a big impact on just how inviting a space feels.
