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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
