There is nothing like a room that has the perfect area rug to create design and style. Area rugs are great at pulling color and style into any space. With the many different area rug shapes, styles and colors that are available to you, it can be difficult to narrow it down to the perfect one. Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some tips to help you choose the perfect area rug to finish off your space.
Oval, Round, Square & Other Area Rug Shapes
It’s easy to forget that there are other options than a rectangle area rug. Don’t be afraid to think outside the rectangle box when you are choosing the right area rug for your home. There are round, oblong, square and even animal hide rugs that can all add beauty and design to your room.
Help with Area Rug Color
There is a simple 60-30-10 rule when it comes to the colors in your space. 60% of the color found in a space will be made up of things like the color on the walls and the flooring. 30% is where your area rug should fit in. This is the column that your area rug should fit into. You shouldn’t be afraid to add secondary colors to the space with your rug. This will help to pull the last 10% of the accent colors found in your accessories out.
Area Rug Patterns
It can be fun to incorporate bright patterns into your room with your area rug. There are so many rugs that have vivid patterns that can be as bold or as passive as you want them to be. It’s best to choose a calmer rug if you have loud patterned furniture or a louder wallpaper on the walls, but if you have neutrals everywhere else, the area rug is the perfect place to bring those patterns into the space.
High Traffic Entryway & Other Rugs
When you are picking out your ideal area rug, think about where you are putting it. If you will be placing this rug in an area that sees a heavy amount of traffic, you will want to choose a rug that has a low pile. For spaces that don’t see as much foot traffic, you can choose a higher pile rug. These higher pile rugs offer another level of comfort as they are usually extremely plush.
Area Rug Size
You don’t ever want to choose an area rug that is too small for a space. Generally speaking, the front legs of the furniture in the room should rest on the area rug for it to be the right size for the space. It is always better to go larger than smaller when you are choosing your area rug.
