Awesome Area Rugs

Area rugs may provide the springboard for your entire color scheme or quietly accent the rest of a room's furnishings.

Here are a few important guidelines to keep in mind while searching for area rugs.

  • To make a rug the focal point of a room, create contrast. Paint your walls a hue that echoes one of your rug's accent colors.
  • When shopping for a room-size rug, look for one that's approximately two to three feet smaller than your room, in both width and length. By the same token, runners should be about four to eight inches narrower than your hallway.
  • If your rug anchors a conversation area, be sure that either the front legs of all seating pieces are on the rug or all four legs of all seating pieces are completely on the rug.
  • Be sure to use the proper liner to keep your rug from slipping on a hardwood surface or "creeping" on a wall-to-wall carpet.
