There was a time when we all had rather plain, rather unfussy design mats in the home, but these days our floor coverings are just as likely to be wildly colourful and almost scarily psychedelic. The range of options on the market is perhaps another indicator that our tastes are becoming ever more outgoing, and thereby creating splashes of colour in a grey world.
Just a few years ago, most of us faced just one question when buying a mat for the interior of the home: should I buy a black one, a brown one or a dark blue one? These days, we are more likely to be asking ourselves whether we prefer Day-Glo yellow circles, neon orange triangles or pulsating emerald green squares. It’s all changed, surely, for the better now.
One of the more pleasing aspects of this sea change in our thoughts is that we now have a chance to express our true personalities. If you have a bright, outgoing character, what’s the point of showing visitors how grey and dull you and your home might be? These days, you can be bold and daring, and tell the whole world that you’re hearty, happy and ready for fun.
A huge choice of designs to suit all tastes
Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, rugs, carpets and mats can incorporate all kinds of design features. There’s no longer any need to rely on plain colours, dull shades and, for many of us, boring designs. In truth, there has never been a better time to stamp aspects of your own personality on to the warmth of your domestic environment.
If you would like to take your old browns, blacks, dark blues and greys and throw them into the skip, the best option is to take a look online. You could be pleasantly surprised by the range of bright designs which are on offer at certain websites. Dramatic swirls and elegant swooshes are easy to find if you have a laptop and a connection to the worldwide web.
This is a golden opportunity for every one of us to express our own thoughts and ideas, and to show friends, relatives and visitors that our homes reflect our characters. If you’re looking to add a splash of colour into your flat or house, it’s always a good idea to start with the floor mats. These provide the opportunity to create a first impression that will last for a long time.
