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!
Size. Depending on the layout of your home you may need several kitchen area rugs. The most common places for kitchen rugs are in front of the sink stove and/or door areas. This is also where the most traffic occurs. Some people choose a large area rug to cover a larger area of the floor rather than buying several smaller kitchen rugs. It's a good idea to know the dimensions of your kitchen so that you know how much space a particular rug is going to use. Non-Slip. Since kitchens tend to be built with non-carpeted flooring a non-slip rug can help it stay in place. What good is a rug if it's able to slide around on the floor? That's going to cause more of a nuisance than being helpful.
Modern Materials. Along with traditional cotton and woolen materials contemporary area rugs are also made with a wide variety of environmentally friendly materials that can add an interesting touch of style to your home. Sisal grass bamboo and seaweed are all surprisingly comfortable and colorful additions that can provide style for any room in your home. If you are looking for a more traditional alternative but still want to maintain your environmentally friendly ideas then untreated wool is also an excellent choice. Wool is made from natural materials and when untreated is chemical free.
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.
