Area rugs are versatile, functional and fashionable. They are not just something to decorate your home, they have a practical purpose as well. They can:
– Be used to create the visual impression of having several separated areas within a room
– Make a room appear warmer
– Add color to a tile or hardwood floor
– Be a link between two rooms
And many more. Decorating a home with area rugs may be done in order to achieve something other than adding a nice design to the floor.
Because of this wide range of different roles, area rugs can be found in all kinds of colors, shapes, sizes and textures. Your decorative flair will be expressed, don’t worry; no matter how extravagant your tastes are, the rug you’re looking for is somewhere out there.
Moving your furniture will probably be necessary if you want to use a large area rug; other than that, there’s no installation process. The material of the area rug and its usage are the two main factors that determine how much care it needs in order to maintain its beauty.
When you’re choosing an area rug to decorate your home, what matters the most are your personal preferences, and therefore it doesn’t really make sense for us to give you a very specific set of rules to determine what kind of area rug you should pick. With that said, here are some basic guidelines that you may find useful:
1) Size of the Area Rug
– For a room size area rug: leave a border on all sides of 18″ – 24″
– For a dining room: 4′ wider and longer than the table, so chairs don’t fall off the rug when they are moved
– For a hallway: 18″ – 24″ shorter and 2″ – 4″ narrower than the hallway
The size of other area rugs varies, depending on the needs of each particular area.
2) Design of the Area Rug
Using patterns that use colors that are present in the same room usually gives a fresh and coordinated look.
Remember that you don’t have to use the traditional square or rectangular rugs; you can also use round and oval shapes if you think that they look better in a particular room.
It is good to take into consideration exposure to spill, traffic patterns and other factors before purchasing an area rug.
