Color-wise rugs that are placed on receiving areas should have a light and soft shade; thus giving the room a warm and cozy feel. Should you place rugs under dark-colored furniture that you intend to make the center of attraction make sure you select lighter toned rugs and simpler designs to highlight the fixtures. This also works with hardwood floors of darker shades. Nonetheless if you plan to set an area rug as the focal point of the room select rugs with intense colors and intricate designs; provided that the rooms motif is simple and wouldn't contrast with the rug's pattern.
Remember to bear in mind what part of the room the rug is going to be positioned; whether it is placed on doorways or near air vents etc. This is because some rugs are too thick or some doors just don't have enough space allotted for an area rug; this would either cause the door to not open or allow the rug to slide and shift every time the door opens. Also there are rugs that can't withstand the heat from air vents. Make sure you pick a rug's material carefully based on the placement of the rug.
An area rug is often the defining feature of a room and with this in mind should be selected with care. The rug you choose will set the tone for the overall feel of the space and will be the factor that ties in all of the different components of the décor. If you have a large space that is divided into more than one area of use rugs can bring these spaces together as a harmonious whole or can be used to further define the different regions of the room to give the feel of separate living areas.
Shopping for the perfect area rug for your space is an exciting endeavor particularly considering the impact the rug will have on the overall look of the room. While these guidelines are good to keep in mind to ensure you end up happy with your purchase remember to have fun with the rug selection process and choose a rug that speaks to you and your personal sense of style.
Cover Worn Carpet. We'll all face worn carpets at some point and lets face it carpet replacement is a big investment that we can't all afford. An affordable area rug is a perfect way to give your room an entire new look and disguise that worn rug. Most rugs wear in the middle of the room where they get the heavier traffic and the outer foot or two often still look relatively new. So buy a huge area rug that compliments the carpet already on the floor leaving just the outer edge that's less worn exposed. You'll be amazed at how different your room looks. Area rugs are also a good way to hide a damaged or stained area of carpet.
Here you will find some generally accepted guidelines for selecting an area rug that will fit your space well and perfectly accent your living area but do keep in mind that personal preferences should trump any type of rules put forth by the rug industry or interior designers.
