Area rugs are an easy decorating element to revitalize a room in your home. It is a relatively quick way to liven-up or change the atmosphere of a room. There is a wide range of area rug carpet styles, colors and textures available for you to enhance your décor. Not only do area rugs add to the ambiance of your home but they also add some great benefits. They add warmth to cold floors and also create a warmer more inviting presence in a room. From traditional area rugs to braided area rugs they are a great investment that can go with you if you decide to move. They need no special installation and can easily be removed for the summer if a lighter look is desired.
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.
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.
Area rug carpets come in various designs such as pictorial, patterns with and with out a central medallion, asymmetrical and geometric patterns. Showy styles are better when they don't compete with other large design element but its your personal taste. A non-competitive rug design would work better if another design feature is intended to be the focal point.
