We Have Area Rugs To Thank For

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Whether you are renting or you’ve just bought your home, if you are not comfortable with the flooring pattern or color, you can actually change it with area rugs.

Area rugs come in various colors. The color scheme ranges from the lightest of shades to the darkest. You won’t have to worry if you have an eclectic taste in color. If you want it, you got it!

The color of the area rugs can be based on the existing colors in the room, especially if you’re not really doing any major renovation. Add more colors for a more vibrant look by incorporating the chosen hue in the throws, cushions and/or curtains.

This is a very inexpensive way to change the look of a room very quickly. Just make sure that your area rugs have colors that you like and that can pull in the colors of your furniture. This will allow you to hide the floor you don’t like, and give you a comfortable space.

Area rugs also come in various sizes. There are small rugs ideal for door use and as accents, and the big ones usually used as a room’s focal point or as an alternative to carpeting.

Unlike carpets, area rugs are more convenient to use because they can be easily cleaned, transferred or switched to another room, stored or carried to a dry cleaners if needed. All these you can do by merely rolling up the rug. Putting them back is also easy to do.

Flooring is harder to change and maintain, but with an area rug, major changes are not necessary. If you want the floor to have a new do, simply lay down a rug. If you want to cover a stain or scratch, cover it with the decorative area rug. If you want to add color or design to a room, use an area rug and the list goes on.

If you get tired of an area rug, you also don’t have to buy a new one if you don’t want. Simply switching rugs between rooms is also an instant redecorating work.

Shopping online will also bring you to sites that sell beautiful and affordable area rugs. Although there’s the shipping and handling costs to think about, the convenience of merely having to wait it out until your rugs arrive is worth it. Better yet, there are online stores that offer a discount for shipping rates or some have promotional offers for free shipping.

Most area rugs are easy to clean, just follow manufacturer’s directions. Also, if you live in a big city you may have a specialized business that specializes in cleaning delicate area rugs. It is well worth the money to clean your rug before you store it; after all, it is a movable investment, which means that you can store it, sell it or bring it back out at a later date.

If you found this information about decorating with rugs useful, then you are bound to adore these orange rugs.
