When choosing an area rug, first consider the style and décor of the room and your home. Is it contemporary or classic? Decorative or minimalist? If you want your area rug to blend in, opt for low-key tones and simple designs. A textured rug that is slightly darker or lighter than the surrounding floor will help create visual interest.area rugs

You’ll also want to consider the materials of your area rugs. Most area rugs are made from wool, though they can also be made out of silk, cotton, nylon or natural fibers. Each material feels slightly different underfoot, so test them to find your favorite.

 

Benefits of an Area Rug

An area rug can add a much needed splash of color to the room, and really complete the look of a large space. They also soften up hard-surface flooring such as hardwood, laminate, or ceramic tile flooring. Hard surface flooring offers many advantages, both in durability and the looks that you can achieve, but it can be a bit cold underfoot, a bit unforgiving and a bit monochromatic. An area rug is a great addition to cold or hard floors.
