I keep this package in my bathroom in case of emergencies, and with such a massive supply, I should be covered for a while.

This Cozy Rug Pad That Holds Rugs in Place

Having a downstairs area primarily laden with hardwood floors means that there is plenty of room to place the rugs of your choosing!

These Throw Pillows That Up Your Comfort Level
