Decorating With Rugs 101

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Decorating with rugs is easy to do. Homeowners are creating a unique look to their home that transfers a normal design to fit into their style or season. Most rugs are placed on the floor in the past but today the rugs are used to decorate the walls and floors.

Rugs help to make a statement in a certain area in your home. Find a focal point or area that you want guests to notice. A rug can set one area apart from the rest without putting up walls or other means to divide it.

Rugs are also great ways to delineate different areas in an open plan home. The can also be used to indicate seating areas.

Materials used to make rugs include: silk, wool, polypropylene, olefin, nylon, and blends. Wool and silk cost the most but they are worth the money. Synthetic rugs are colorful and beautiful while they last but they don’t always stand the test of time. There are environment friendly rugs to choose from. They include sea grass, mountain grass, hemp, cotton, bamboo, and sisal.

The kind of rug you choose is down to your personal preferences and the shared tastes of your family. Make sure, though, that the size of the rug is appropriate to the space available – a too-large rug can make a room look crowded, while a rug that is too small gets lost. And as far as colors are concerned, you should see that the rug either matches or contrasts pleasingly with your other furnishings and general color scheme of the room.

When you are placing a rug down on the floor remove all wrinkles and creases in the rug so you don’t cause anyone to fall. When placing the rug under a dining room table make sure you measure four feet more than the top of your table. This will allow your table to sit in the center of the rug and allow for enough space to scoot the chairs in and out without getting off the rug.

There is an enormous variety of rugs available nowadays, in an incredible range of materials, colours, textures, designs, shapes and styles. And with prices that range widely, you are sure to find the right rugs for your living spaces. Synthetic rugs start at less than $300 when they are about 5 feet by 8 feet in size, and rugs made from natural fibres are even more reasonably priced. A good rug will be strong and durable, so it is a good investment that will give you years of value.

Decorating with rugs has never been this easy with these rugs. Be sure to take a look at these synthetic rugs for sale for the latest information.
