Include Area Rugs 

An area rug is a smart way to warm up any home, especially if you have hard surface floors like tile, vinyl, or wood. Choose shag rugs for maximum insulating benefits, since these soft rugs are made of a thick, high pile. Placing a large rug underneath your bed means no cold feet when you step out of the sheets onto a hard floor. Decadent floor cushions and bean bags can also add to the warm factor of your living spaces and are portable to move towards a heat source, at a safe distance of course.
