Use in Open Spaces. The open-concept has been around for years now and is still highly favored by the majority of decorating professionals and homeowners. Large or small round rugs are perfect for these areas because they help define spaces. It could be an eating area, spot for reading or snuggling in front of a fireplace, or area for cooking to name a few. It is best to set furnishings into groups that are square but surrounding a round rug. They can also be layered on top of square or rectangle rugs. If this method is chosen, place the front legs of the furniture on the rectangle rug, and then place the small round rug on top.
Create an Inviting Entryway - When your front door opens straight into the room without a designated foyer, you can build the illusion of one with an area rug. A chevron wool rug is a good example of creating a welcoming entrance and makes a nice contrast to the hardwood. Use a bold color area rug to build on the look by adding a small piece of furniture and some art.
Some homeowners are motivated to add a cowhide rug to their home because of the natural beauty of this material. Animal hides immediately incorporate a natural element into the space, and this can easily soften an otherwise intense decorative scheme with incredible contrast. While it is natural, it is also hypo-allergenic. This makes it ideal for homes with allergy-sufferers. The natural element of cowhide is most commonly thought of for rustic or country themes, but it looks great with classic, modern, French country and other styles as well.
Outline High Traffic Areas - Larger spaces often mean there are multiple entrances and exits to both the outdoors and other rooms. Dare to place area rugs on top of your already installed carpets for protection. This indoor-outdoor rug not only is visually appealing, but it can handle the traffic from French doors. More importantly, it creates a traffic pattern. Outside Area Rugs - Large patios can also be transformed into defined, open-air living spaces. A durable outdoor rug can carve out a great outdoor living room from a space without definite borders. A rug makes any seating area and specially in front of a fireplace an inviting creative and cozy family space for more family sharing.
