Which Area Rug Best Suits Your Home?



Choosing to live in a house or apartment that has hard wood or tile flooring can be an excellent choice. Wood or tile is easier to clean, lasts longer against wear, and can give your home a beautiful rustic appearance. Yet, many interior designers may feel that without a rug a room seems cold, distant, and lacks personality. If you run into this sort of problem, investing in an area rug could be the perfect solution. Area rugs are inexpensive, simple to place and move whenever you choose, and can be cleaned without trouble. Be careful, however, as purchasing any old rug may lead to a design faux pas!

There are as many area rugs available to choose from as there are stars in the sky, so picking the right one can be a difficult choice. Should it match your floor, your walls, your furniture, all three? What shape would go best with your new age angular furniture pieces? Consider your area rugs to be artwork adorning the floor as opposed to the walls, and you may be able to forge an answer for yourself. If you’re still having trouble picking the perfect throw rug, there are a few basic rules to remember.

First and foremost, the area rug should be a minimum of six inches and no more than two feet away from the wall. This will help to balance out the ratio of covered to uncovered space on the floor. Secondly, the shape of your rugs should match the general shape of your furniture. If your couch has smooth, soft edged along its trim, for example, you should stick to <a href="http://www.therugswarehouse.co.uk/round-rugs.html" title="circular rugs">circular rugs</a> of a matching color. If you continue to test and try out new things, soon enough you’ll stumble across the perfect look for your home.

How do you choose to use area rugs in your home? Do you stick to the safe route, or let your design fancy fly free?
