Area rugs are often intended to define and delineate space. If your rug is too big for the area you are decorating you will be tempted to tuck the edges of the rug under your heavier pieces of furniture. When heavy furnishings are placed on an area rug they can often cause bunching and wrinkling where the furniture legs are indenting their selves into your rug. This can cause the most beautiful and expensive rugs to look cheesy and warped. Indents, wrinkles and warping of rugs from heavy furnishings can also become more permanent.
Many people think that, because they have hardwood floors, they cannot use a floor covering. While the decision to cover a hardwood floor is entirely up to the homeowner, they should never feel discouraged from using a floor covering. The right pattern and color will enhance the natural beauty of the wood and pull the room together in a way that would otherwise not be easy to achieve. When carpets are placed on hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors, they tend to slide around. Use a non-slip pad to keep the area rug in place without damaging the floors with adhesive strips or glue. This makes it possible to move the floor covering without damaging the finish of the floors underneath the carpet. Best of all, the non-slip pad provides an added layer of cushion, making the floor covering that much more comfortable to walk on.
Feel Out the Mood. When decorating its important to choose every element with care. Consider the mood of the room or the mood to be created. Flowers are perfect for a romantic feel along with curving patterns and subtle tones. Thats why a small round rug is perfect because it automatically has those soft curves. They can work in an office, living room, entryway or bathroom and liven it up or relax it as needed. Combine small round rugs with contrasting wallpapers, funky accessories or chic furnishings to really make spaces pop.
Remember, the rug should extend about an extra 32 inches past a dining table to accommodate pulling out chairs. When being placed in other spaces they should meet the furnishings in some way. It is a great idea to find a common color in your rug and pull it out using things like vases, throw pillows, wall hangings and other elements. This ties the room together.
