Have you finished the decorating of your new place and then realized it is too neutral, and color is lacking? We are sometimes so inquisitive about getting the whole house done in a nice coordinated manner - with neutral colours that are easy to work with - that we forget to add interest and personality to our finished rooms or new hardwood flooring.
That neutral background depends on color in furniture and accent pieces to add interest to the home. A neutral background is fine if we take that last step in the decorating process. Area rugs are a flooring accent category that shouldn't be ignored, whether they're used on laminate flooring or hardwood.
Area rugs come in many sizes and shapes to suit any room or area of the house. You can get intricate patterns in traditional or up to date style. There are area rugs that depend on fascinating materials and textures for design interest. Area rugs can come in many bright and interesting colours that'd be a bit much in wall to wall carpet. Area rugs can have a theme or a game motif for specialty uses. There are very good children's rugs that add a touch of fun now, and can be exchanged for more mature patterns as the youngsters grow.
Area rugs serve many flooring functions in the home. Heavy-traffic areas like entryways can have an area rug to absorb soil from the outside as people enter the house, and can then be laundered when dirty. These rugs may need to be replaced more frequently than wall to wall carpet. Replacing a tiny area rug is less expensive than replacing a whole room's carpet.
Area rugs do nicely in defining spaces like conversation areas and dining rooms. Area rugs can add color and pattern to a room with no other points of interest. Best of all, area rugs can go with you when you move.
Some of the best companies world wide for area rugs are: Karastan for machine made wool rugs of high quality; worldwide accent for traditional and contemporary rugs made in India ; Momeni for persian rugs made from Chinese wool in China; and Surya Artist Studio for wool rugs of New Zealand imported from India in modern designs.There are corporations making fine area rugs and carpet out of manmade fibers too. The wool area rugs are longer lasting and better quality, but they're dear. If your budget is smaller, search online for firms which make area rugs from synthetic fibers on machines.
