For thousands of years, area rugs have brought warmth and comfort to our living spaces. They also contribute color, design and texture to any room. Let’s not forget how quickly an area rug can transform the look and feel of a room – and how easily area rugs can be changed to help our home reflect each season.
The job of an area rug is to enhance and brighten the beauty of your home and your existing floor. It is not just to protect your high-traffic areas like hallways or sitting areas.
Area rugs are versatile. Use them to link rooms together using your rugs’ colors and patterns. Combine these with intriguingly different shapes and see how rugs will contribute to the design flow throughout the house, inviting visitors from room to room.
Showing some élan, area rugs can be used to create and enhance a focal point of a room. Or a rug can even become the focal point of a room – creating that intimate space for a fireside chat or a quiet place to read.
The best way to approach designing with area rugs is to think of them as art for your floor. With that in mind, you can begin to think of them in the same creative way a designer does – as the ideal way to decorate and quickly redecorate a room, even if it’s temporary, say for a special function or for each change of season.
Now, isn’t it time to look at ways to make your home fresh and cozy for the coming season? Give your home the easiest do-it-yourself makeover. Invest in a quality area rug, one that’s good enough to become the next family keepsake.
