While there’s nothing wrong with randomly visiting a local store to select an area rug, it’s generally best to do your homework before doing any shopping. Area rugs come in such a wide range of styles and designs that choosing a single one can be positively overwhelming. A great way to simplify your search for the perfect area rug is by learning a little about a few of the most popular varieties that are on the market today. The following overview will give you a crash course on the most popular types of area rugs.
Bordered rugs. These are simply rugs of any size or shape with a base color in the middle and strips of border on the edges. The borders can be one strip in a coordinating color or several strips in two or three colors. Bordered rugs’ uses are innumerable. They can be put under cocktail tables, dining tables or an entire living-room set or used as a foyer piece. Prices will depend on the quality of carpet used, the shape of it and the number of borders tacked on the edges.
It’s not the seventies anymore; however, shag rugs are making a comeback in a very big way. Unlike their older counterparts, though, these area rugs are bursting with vibrant style and aren’t tacky at all. In fact, their plush, soft designs make them wonderful options for a wide variety of different situations. There’s something to be said for using as many different textures as possible in the home; to that end, a high quality shag rug can be a very welcome addition to your overall design scheme. Make sure to invest in a shag rug that boasts topnotch craftsmanship for best results.
Those living in small spaces often turn to designers to help them maximize every inch of room. Beyond skilled allocation of space, designers can recommend techniques to trick the eye; for example, taking focus off a room’s shortcomings and redirecting attention to carefully selected focal points such as area rugs. Designers know that smaller, modest-sized spaces can be extra challenging to furnish since most ready-made pieces are out of proportion with small-scale dimensions. To ensure key pieces will scale correctly for small spaces, it’s wise to think outside of the box, creating something custom made to fit when possible. One of the easiest ways to do this is to transform ready-made area rugs into a perfectly sized custom rug.
