I recently invested in a new rug for the house, however for years I dealt with a gray tile that could undoubtedly be cleaned up! The tile was practical for having a animal plus various teenagers; Sand, dirt, hair plus grime never showed on that tile. It could be scrubbed plus take any sort of cleaning product. It wasn’t all that pretty though. I had to get a brown color that matched the outside dirt plus my cat’s furâ€¦ Now that my fiance plus I are alone in the house, the practical color was no longer needed. The grout was stained anyway. It made sense to replace it with a carpet. Since I knew my fiance plus I would be careful, I invested in a gorgeous pear colored rug. It has all sorts of yellows, browns plus yellow in it. It looks absolutely good stretched through the house. I observed recently that we get a lot of sun coming inside the house, and with brown tile that wasn’t a problem. With my rug I was worried about the sun fading the vibrant colors. I didn’t want all the colors to blend together to be a light pear rug, and ew, that would look bad. So I decided that a sun control window film on every window in the beach house was the right idea. Now the rug is protected plus won’t fade in color at all, then also, the sun control window film makes the beach house believe much cooler in the summer! My fiance plus I have saved quite a bit on AC this year.
