Area rugs are the perfect accessory to complete a room’s décor, breathe new life into a boring space, define a nook, or simply add warmth over a cool hard surface floor. A beautiful area rug is to a room what a tie is to a suit or the perfect pair of shoes to an outfit. The right area rug will define the mood of the room while adding your own personal sense of style. Area rugs are tremendously versatile, yet they are also practical and functional – they offer noise reduction, protection for the floor and prevent slipping.
When choosing an area rug style, you will first want to consider how the space will function: Think about whether the rug will lay in a high traffic, every day gathering place or if it will be in a more formal setting. Also think about the rug’s purpose – will it be the focal point or will it showcase other elements in the room?
The other important item to ponder is your personal design preference for the room. Is it casual or elegant? Whimsical or Natural? Since there are so many designs, colors, shapes and sizes, choosing the right rug can be overwhelming at first. But if you have an idea of the how the space will function and your style– you will be ahead of the game when you start shopping. A sales consultant will happily walk you through the selection process as you share with them where you are placing the rug, how it will function, and your own personal design preferences. The options are limitless with area rugs – but remember they are easy to change out and update.
