  • 7 Stuff in Your House That Show You Are an Impulse Buyer

    "Shopping can provide a pick-me-up and make you feel more in charge of your life," says April Lane Benson, Ph.D., a psychologist who specializes in consumer buying behavior. Sure enough, that flashy “SALE” sign has a hypnotic effect on the human brain! Strolling through a supermarket you naturally end up buying more than you actually need - even if it means shopping out of your list. Psychologists say we enjoy a great deal of pleasure when we imagine owning a product that we happen to see; most often than not, we end up buying that product to continue experiencing this ecstatic pleasure of owning. Shopping outside of your needs easily gets classified as impulse buying. Glance through the following stuff typically witnessed in an impulse buyer’s home. Who knows, you could be one such deal-prone impulse buyer!

    1. Multiple Cards

    A decade ago, receiving a loyalty card from a diner did raise a few eyebrows among consumers. Now it is a common sight to receive one such card even from your favourite coffee shop. It is a natural tendency of impulse buyers to throng many shops and obviously accumulate almost every card on the deal. Gone are the days when one credit card sufficed for all the shopping needs of a home and now it does not come as a surprise for one member to stack atleast 4 to 5 credit cards from many banks offering varied lucrative schemes. Since credit cards let you pay and forget all about it till reminded by the bank, it is common for an impulse buyer to possess many credit cards; one for supermarkets, one for online shopping, one for a particular retailer and another suitable for a particular diner. It sure is a crazy cards dealing!

    2. In-Trend Stuff

    No doubt you chose that multi-tasking furniture to double your utility. At the same time, this novelty means you have to get rid of your old stuff that served you till the new one arrived. If you are replacing your dear old stuff just to keep up with a trend chased by your kitty party friends, you sure are an impulse buyer. There are thousands and millions of home improvement ideas flooding the market and naturally trends come and go. Opt for timeless home improvement things that you can rely on for years because altering massive stuff becomes a huge investment every time. Pursuing trends sure is a gamble!

    3. Craft Fair Hauls

    Handicrafts surely drive your buying impulse go wild and crazy. If you have a craft fair haul lying around the house since you did not have the time to arrange them or the old arrangement was taken down for a fresh stock of handiwork stuff, you sure did let your impulse take over everything else. Even if you visit one of those craft fairs to buy Christmas gifts, you will end up walking out with a bulky haul all for yourself; such is the enticement of handicrafts. You can keep this inclination under check by carrying the required amount of cash that is within the plan instead of your flashy credit card.

    4. Rolled Rugs

    Rugs are magical stuff that can dispense enormous charm when they are rolled out; they are the most irresistible of all the handicrafts you come across for home décor. As sumptuous and striking the natural fibers in your rugs are; they are vulnerable to get infected by moths when left to lay idle. Moist conditions will surely make your rug quality deteriorate with time. If you have an assortment of rugs, use them in layers and allow your rug the privilege to age gracefully instead of piling them in your store. You sure cannot buy gorgeous rugs out of mere impulse. Can you?

    5. Shy Art Pieces

    Unless you are an epic character like Virgil Oldman from “The Best Offer”, who can afford to have a huge room full of art for display, buying art pieces only to be stashed in the attic shows you did go very far with your impulsive shopping. Art looks its best when displayed; if not revealed for the whole world, set-up a separate room for your art to be hung or displayed elegantly. Consider putting up art in your attic, loft, basement and even the mud room; any place that flaunts the beauty of an art is suitable for your collection. The artist did complete his masterpiece for someone to admire; and that “someone” happened to be you, who has invested heavily on these living legends.

    6. Overloaded Fridge

    We sure do not need a picture to demonstrate an overloaded fridge; if you are forcing close the fridge door, it sure is overloaded - one of the most common sights in an impulse buyer’s abode. Most of the time you will end up buying stuff that is already present in your fridge - just that you did not notice due to the food outburst in your fridge. Shopping in supermarkets as we already know is the main gateway for buying out of impulse. Declutter the fridge every week or just before hitting the supermarkets to curb this concern.



    7. Sweet Burst

    Unless it is Halloween round the corner, if it is normal for your home to be sprawling with sweets, it shows you are an impulse buyer. Your home need not flaunt Willy Wonka’s factory; even if one can find sweets in notable places of your home - that is without any occasion, you sure need to smack your hand when picking sweets off the aisle, during your wait at the supermarket cash counter. Sweets are displayed prominently near the checkout area to activate that sweet-buying-impulse; without which you wouldn’t otherwise consider buying sweets.

  • Top 9 Mistakes While Placing a Rug

    If you are a person with a “do-what-you-want-because-there-are-no-rules-for-rug-placement” conviction, let us face it, a shoddy rug placement will look like you are skipping a part of a story that you don’t want to tell! Here are some first-hand-experience tips to help you make an informed decision as to how exactly that ideal rug in your mind should be seated in your home; gracefully or shabbily.

    1. Isolating Your Rug

    One of the favourite rug debates - the furniture legs on the rug or off the rug. Sure enough there is no hard and fast rule in this regard; just that large rugs covering most of the room with all the furniture sitting on them is a delicious sight. It gives a feeling that you did not skimp on getting an appropriate rug that is in line with the scale, proportion and harmony of your room. A rug that's too small is worse than no rug at all; this gives way to make a room look cheap.

    2. Covering Beauty

    It sure does enhance the luxury feel if your feet can get to experience rugs everywhere. Covering the pathways made of vinyl is justified but covering that beautiful hardwood pathway flooring is a crime for sure! Instead, consider adding a continuous narrow runner to flaunt your hardwood flooring in conjunction with enjoying all the comforts rugs have to offer.

    3. Similar-Sized Rugs Together

    It might feel like you are creating a beautiful layered look by using two rugs of the same size; but in reality, using two similar-sized rugs in the same place will slice your room into half its original size making your room look visually smaller. Always consider layers with two different sizes; colours and patterns could be similar but never the size. If you still end up with two similar-sized rugs for your home décor, you can still create a sophisticated look by placing one rug diagonal to the other - to create a visual size imbalance!

    4. Area Rug On Carpet

    If you have moved into a house with nothing but an entire rugby pitch length of brown carpeting, you obviously want to add colorful area rugs to break the vast brown sea. Rugs on carpets can end up looking like an excess of goodness or look too tacky if you don’t add a faint distraction to the rug lying on your carpet. Use rugs diagonally to make an abstract pattern on the carpet and set-up an element of focal point like a piano, a grandfather’s clock or even an antique table instead of your usual furniture; your furniture look just perfect even on the carpet.

    5. Disregarding A Rug Pad

    A common mistake while placing a rug is not using the right pad considering your floor type or worst still, not using a rug pad at all. A rug pad has multi-faceted utility; for your feet, flooring and your carpet. Pads add on to the cushiony softness rugs have to offer, they provide protection to your flooring by avoiding rug dye transfer and best of all, pads increase the durability of your rugs; without a rug pad, the fine fibers in your rug get crushed between your feet and the hard flooring beneath. Needless to say, rug pads prevent slipping.

    6. Floor Break-Up

    Using large area rugs for floor break-up in the common areas like the living room, dining room, hallway and kitchen will hide a way lot of your beautiful flooring. Instead, the idea of using large area rugs just for the two main common areas of your room, the living and dining areas, will reveal just the right amount of your floor in these two high-traffic areas of your home.

    7. Erratic Hues In Open Floor Plan

    Do area rugs have to be within a single color palette when using them to define space in an open concept room? Absolutely yes or your interiors end up looking like a cluster of colorful circus tents! The rugs don't have to be similar, but staying within one single color scheme will make your home more congruous. Further, haywire rug colours will create an unanchored feel to an open floor plan. Go with varied patterns and sizes but stick to one colour scheme instead of contrasting colours.

    8. Large Space & Orderliness

    When working with large spaces, disregard the orderly manner of decorating with rugs. A simple change in the pattern of placing a rug will enhance the element of style to your room and keep your space fuller. In a large space, placing an angular rug the traditional way will keep most of your area bare; consider placing your rug diagonally - this will occupy more of your space and also flaunts your tasteful approach in interior décor.

    9. Too Close?

    Enjoying the natural glow of fire while treating your feet to the ultimate softness of your rug - a relishing sight for sure. But how feasible is it to render your favourite rug to the embers shot from the fireplace? Synthetic rugs catch fire very fast while wool rugs get charred. Placing rugs too close to a fireplace that has no fire screen could prove to be a pricey loss; personal safety is at peril which is a known risk. An open fireplace should never have rugs or anything flammable in the close vicinity.
