wood floor doormat

The holiday season is almost here! As things start to get busy with gift buying, party planning and family trips, decorating your home can easily be forgotten. We understand that here in the Mooresville, Denver, Concord, North Charlotte, NC area you have more to think about than centerpieces and mantel arrangements. Not to worry – we have a few easy ways for you to liven up your home in moments. Plus, a few of these tricks serve double duty by protecting your floors from harsh weather conditions!


Door Mats

As flooring experts, we at Floor Coverings International Mooresville recommend investing in door mats for every time of year. But these are an especially easy and smart way to decorate for the holidays. You can find a huge selection at most home stores that feature everything from elegant seasonal outdoor landscapes to silly characters like Frosty and Rudolph. They’re a breeze to swap out when the season is over, and they greet guests with holiday cheer!



This is another easy addition to your home that also helps to protect your floors. We love styles in bright colors like red and green. When paired together these rugs look festive, but it’s easy to rearrange things in your home after the holidays. Rugs are easy to store, and most importantly, they help to protect your floors from moisture and dirt that can be tracked in during get-togethers. Be sure to invest in a rug mat so that no one will be in danger of slipping.



This might be a no-brainer, but we had to mention them! Wreaths come ready-to-hang and are available in a huge range of styles. Plus, they fill your home with the seasonal smell of pine needles without you having to lift a finger! Get one for your front door, and one to hang in the living room above the mantel.


The Gift of Ribbons

This trick is great for parties. Buy a roll of thick ribbon and grab a pair of scissors. Now, “wrap” a few items around your home. You can add a bow to chairs at the dining room table, or put the ribbon around pillows on the couch. This easy decoration is quick to remove and people will love the creativity.


Happy holidays from Floor Coverings International Mooresville!
