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.
With walls coming down in remodels and new homes reflecting open-concept design trends, rugs provide comfort and beauty while organizing and maximizing space. Perk up your decor by adding area rugs. Take a look at online stores that have affordable lovely carpets on sale, check out online decorating ideas and social media, get a feel for what look you would like to achieve but at the same time think out of the box and dare to be different. Your family and friends will love for sure what youve chosen. Living on a budget? Find out how much you need to spend and plan a monthly amount to set aside and a target date. You will be able to change your decor by painting an accent wall, add a few decoration vases with colorful fruits or flowers, use colorful owls and the area rugs youve chosen.
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.
Wool Fiber that has been shorn from New Zealand sheep is the best fiber for an area rug. Why a New Zealand sheep? Because they have been bred to produce "carpet quality" wool fiber. An area rug of New Zealand wool fiber will be soft on the feet and extremely durable. Most stains are not a problem; simply blot gently with clear warm water for best results. An area rugs density will play an important role in its life and performance. A flimsy cotton or olefin (polypropylene) rug or a runner without a secondary backing is nothing but trouble. A rug without sufficient density will wrinkle, warp, buckle and bunch. Not to mention the battle for possession that takes place when you try to vacuum it. The vacuum almost always wins this battle as you try using your feet to keep it under submission and out of the suction tube. I dont know anyone who enjoys constantly adjusting and straightening their rugs. If you buy a rug with sufficient pile density (or weight) it will remain where you place it and behave when you vacuum. I prefer rugs of at least 12mm. Especially if they are to be placed over wall-to-wall carpet. Buy a dense rug and let gravity keep it in position and under control.
