Area Rug Brings Space Together

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Area Rugs, Design and Decorating

fromPTG100512Most of us think of rectangular rugs in a living or dining room when we consider area rugs. But the right rug in a hall like this can make all the difference.

This rug provides warmth and draws the eye down the hall. It breaks up the dark wood floor and helps define the edges of the surrounding rooms without the need for doors or other separating features.

The classic style of this rug suits the traditional architecture and antique wood furniture. This home conforms to a very specific style and the rug supports that.

The big surprise in this space is the choice of yellow on the walls. It’s a vivid color, but the white molding, dark floors and neutral rug help moderate its tone.

Hall-shaped area rugs come in almost as many styles, colors and patterns as traditional rectangular rugs. The pattern is often tighter because of its narrow perspective. They are, however, most commonly seen in traditional settings where an Oriental look is standard.

Do you have a place in your home that would benefit from a hall rug? One could provide a clear path through a home with an open living area, add interest to a long hallway, or carry forward a design style from one room to another. This type of rug is also often used on wood stairways to add softness and stability.

Some of today’s halls may be too narrow for this type of rug to work well. It’s nice to have some of the flooring show on either side of the rug for contrast. Measure the length and width of your hall or stairway, and bring those measurements with you to our showroom. We’ll help you determine whether a rug like this could add color and interest to your home.
