With summer in full swing, it’s always a good idea to transition your apartment’s décor to match the changing seasons outside. By changing up things inside such as color, patterns and fabrics, you can make your apartment as bright and cheery as the weather. One of the easiest and most impactful ways you can do this is by updating your rugs.
CTBest provides beautiful wall-to-wall carpeting in many of its luxury apartments, but adding your own style through area rugs, mats and other decorative rugs can really elevate your space and also help keep those carpets clean.
In thinking about how to care for your rugs over the summer and buying new rugs for the summer, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Use summer colors. To keep the summer attitude going even when you’re inside, use brighter and lighter colors when looking for a rug for the summer. Colors such as yellow, orange and blue are bright and welcoming, and tend to make people happy as they think about the fun activities in the (yellow) sun or relaxing by a serene (blue) beach. These colors work for entryways, bath mats and all throughout your apartment.
- Consider the style and material of the rug. Using materials that remind you of a beach house, such as rag or rope rugs, help give you a summer feel in your apartment. Also, rugs made of materials that are light like cotton help you stay cool during the summer when you’re not out at the community pool.
- Buy rugs that are easy to clean, and keep supplies in stock to clean rugs over the summer. Summer activities are sure to bring dirt and dust into the apartment, and rugs and mats can be the first line of defense against these and other allergens as you and others enter your apartment. Buy a rug that is easy to clean and have supplies such as a vacuum and carpet cleaners readily available if it gets stained or dirty.
These are just a few tips to help refresh your apartment for the summer. You can find affordable rugs to give your apartment a summer makeover at many home stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Target.
