Make sure that at least the two primary colors match the room or the furnishings. Look at the room as a whole. Decide were and what the focal point is that you are trying to achieve. If the area rug is to be the focal point in the room consider a large central medallion on the rug. These work well! Make sure that the area rugs patterns will not clash with the patterns on your furniture of the patterns on your walls. You want the rug to interact with the room and not be loud and brash. When selecting your area rug take a sample of the wall paper or a color sample of the wall paint and a sample of material which covers the furniture with you.
If no samples are readily available take several photos in different light conditions with you. This will help give you an idea of the color combinations that will work while you shop for that perfect area rug. If you have a sample of the hardwood floor take a piece with you. Because the rug will be placed on the wood floor it's a great way to see what the effect is. Be sure it has some of the warm or cool elements in the rug to accent the wood floor depending on the look you are going for. The style of rug will play a important roll in the finished look of the room. Look at the room and the type of decor you have. Rooms with antiques will beg for a Oriental rug but be careful because they may be to busy for the room. You will find that braided rugs work well for a traditional modern looking room.
You can buy round area rugs that are handmade as well as factory-made. The handmade rugs are often more durable than the factory made ones but both should be able to withstand a lot of pressure before they split apart. The downside to buying a handmade round rug is that they can cost you some serious cash-money. It is recommended to always check out handmade rugs if you have the budget for them. However most people do not have the budget to buy a round handmade rug and instead always check out the factory-made round-rugs.
Choose an area rug that reflects your personality and the ambiance of the room. Use an area rug to create a warm and intimate room or use it to decrease the noise level in a room. So versatile! And a simple or elegant area rug will accent the wood floors in any room. If you get tired of the look you can very easily change the rug unlike wall to wall carpeting which is very expensive to change out. You will want to match the primary colors in the rug and have it compliment your furniture and wall colors. Be sure to take the lighting in the room into consideration. If the room is dark and dull you will want to increase the lighting or buy a rug that has lighter tones in the colors to help brighten up the area.
