Area rugs are powerful interior accents. They can transform a room. Use a rug if you need to add warmth to a space since some spaces can feel rather cold. For example, tile and stone can actually cool a room. Add an area rug to add instant warmth and comfort to any room. Rugs can also help to protect your beautiful floors. But how do you decide what type of rug to buy? Consider the following to narrow your search.
Take into account what is on the walls. If you have a patterned wall paper, you will want to select a simple rug. It is probably not the best idea to select a busy patterned rug when there is already a pattern on the wall. In this case choose a solid color, or if you want more depth you can pick a textured weave that is made out of several different colors of yarn.
Area rugs can be beautiful works of art. If you want to showcase your rug then try not to cover it up. Select glass top accent tables that will allow a clear view of the beautiful rug. For a more formal rug, find one with decorative edges. For example tassels are normally found on traditional rugs.
The size of the rug depends on the size of the space, and what will be sitting on top of it. For a dining room table, there should be at least two inches sticking out from the chairs when they are pulled out. The same goes for upholstery such as sofas and chairs.
Acceptable arrangements include the front legs of furniture on the rug, while the back legs rest on the floor (if the furniture backs up to a wall) as well as centering the rug in a seating area without any of the furnishings resting on the rug. When determining the size, consider the shape and proportion of the furnishings on or around where the rug will be placed.
