Wood floors have made an amazing come back and today they are the number one choice in flooring. Wood floors are classy and elegant and easy to clean but they do lack the personal touch and character so there has been a new demand for area rugs. Area rugs are the perfect wood floor accent! By adding an area rug you can spice up the dull looking floors, add some color and character to a room, and add a warm touch for your feet on those cold winter days. You will be able to match the area rugs with your home decor with little problem. In fact you'll have so many choices, choosing might be a bit difficult!
The first is positioning it, either completely on the rug, with some of the rug passing out beyond the rear edge of your furniture. That would resemble a placemat utilized to display and hold your tableware. On the other hand, if you place the area rug so that the front edges of the furniture are just on the edge of the rug, holding it down, so it does not move and yet frames the rug, so to speak, it creates a nice, cozy conversation area.
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.
The size of the area rug is important to ensure that you cover the space that you are wanting to cover. You may not want to cover the entire room but just have a square area rug defining a conversation area. It is a matter of personal preference whether the furniture is on or off the area rug carpet. Remember to select an area rug carpet that fits your personal style and suits your needs. Keep in mind the amount of traffic in the room and the atmosphere that you are wanting to create for your home. Whether you want a light colored rug to keep the room light and airy or deeper colors to make it cozy the choice is yours.
