Buying a rug is probably the easiest way to transform the look and feel of a room quickly
A room’s “fifth wall,” the floor, can showcase dramatic area rugs that are so breathtaking in color and design, they’re like works of art. And rugs can change the feel of a space in minutes—so you can do a room makeover on your lunch hour. Rugs look great layered over carpet or adding warmth and color to hardwood, laminate, resilient-vinyl, and tile.
Benefits Of Area Rugs
Here are a few tips to get you started—because it’s important to know the major decision points in shopping for this exciting purchase:
Color. Light-colored rugs make a room seem airy, while darker styles create an intimate feeling.
Pattern. If you are looking to create a focal point, opt for bold colors and more active or ornate designs. But if a rug’s purpose is to quietly complement existing décor, a solid color or subtle pattern works best.
Durability. In a room with heavy traffic, a solid, dark rug works best to disguise wear and tear. For an heirloom that will survive generations, invest in a rug with timeless design and sturdy construction.
