Make Your Living Room a Focal Point - While big rooms and tall spaces are the inviting aspect of an open-concept home, they also bring a challenge for organizing a cozy space for hanging out. A beautiful living space can be undefined until you place a patterned rug for an inviting and cozier conversation area. With high ceilings and big windows, the rug provides an anchor to the room and draws the eye down from the big spaces, making the room feel friendly and cozy.
Furniture may set the tone of a room, but there are many different interior design elements that affect the style and theme of a space. While table lamps provide task lighting and throw pillows lend a degree of comfort to an already cozy sofa, the easiest way to improve a room is to use area rugs. Here are a few things to remember when searching. Floor coverings come in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Before heading to the store or browsing online, identify the room s theme. This will help narrow down patterns and colors into the ones that best suit the room. In fact, eye-catching area rugs may even provide ideas for decorating the rest of the room.
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.
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.
