Hallway Rugs. Depending on the size of the hallways in your home you will likely need a long narrow area rug - or runner - for this space. In order to achieve a balanced look and find the right size rug for your hallway keep in mind that the rug you select should be two to four inches narrower than the width of your hallway and 18 to 24 inches shorter than your hallway's total length.
When the chairs are pulled out from the table to be used all of the legs should remain on your dining room area rug which means your rug needs to be big enough to accommodate a space larger than the footprint of your table with the chairs pushed in. A good rule for this is to seek out an area rug for your dining room that is at least four feet wider and longer than the footprint of your dining set.
Oriental Weavers and Mohawk Carpet Company are two of the many companies who manufacture wall to wall carpet and smaller bound carpets in wool and other fine materials in a vast array of colors and patterns. Oriental weavers specialize in the traditional oriental carpets of bright colors and intricate designs but also make some very beautiful contemporary designs. They have hand woven and hand tufted carpets. Mohawk uses the finest machinery and modern rug making technology to turn high grade wool into rich machine made wall to wall and bound carpets.
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.
Rug composition. Rugs are made of many different materials. Many of them today thanks to the development of synthetic fibers are inexpensive to own. Cheap area rugs can be used in spaces where there is much more traffic and where the rug may need to be replaced occasionally. Cheap area rugs do not need to look cheap. The man made materials often have more variety than more expensive Persian rugs. Persian rugs are known for their beauty and durability but may be beyond the budget of many homeowners. Discount rugs are often made of synthetic fiber which repels water better than Persian rugs so may be more appropriate as kitchen rugs or bathroom rugs.
Know what room you want it to be positioned so as to know a rug's function; whether it stands as a mere floor covering or a wall décor. Pondering on a rug's function will allow you to consider the material of the rug. For rooms with heavy foot traffic like living rooms and dining areas choose a rug that is made with fibers that are resilient to dirt and stains; specifically natural fibers like wool. If you wish to use an area rug as a wall décor (like tapestries) choose rugs made of natural silk; since silk tends to last better than other natural materials because of its delicate and lustrous quality.
