Basic Tips for Choosing Area Rugs. When selecting an area rug size matters. In fact the size of the rug is one of the most important aspects to consider. While color style and design are obviously important factors in achieving the overall desired look the size of the rug will ultimately determine if the rug looks like it belongs in the room or was haphazardly tossed on the floor without much thought.
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.
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.
Accent On Hardwood Floors. Hardwood floors have made a big comeback in the past few years. And they are beautiful! But too much can be a bit overwhelming and they don't retain any heat so in the cooler months you can find your footsies getting chilly. Using an area rug in a large room such as a living room can add a beautiful focal point to the room and accentuate your hardwood floors even more. It will also keep the floor warmer and cozier. Because there are so many types of areas to choose from you won't have any problem finding one that works. You can choose from Persian rugs Oriental rugs Southwestern rugs traditional styles or contemporary styles.
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.
Who says size doesn't matter? Who would want to choose a rug that is so undersized or too big?
