The key to getting a custom look from off-the-shelf area rugs is to combine several together, giving the appearance of a large, custom-sized version. While this project is easy to do, success depends on selecting the right materials - not just any area rug will work. Solids are easy to use; depending on the rug’s material, however, seams may appear prominent and detract from the intended illusion of one large solid piece. Textural rugs such as shag are often the best choice since the loose fibers of the shag hide the seams between each rug. Rugs with large-scale patterns make the most visual impact, especially since introducing a pattern into a cramped space can take focus off the lack of square footage and attract it to the bold pattern.
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.
Nowadays, the most sought-after area rugs are those that have modern designs. Whether the homeowner has a limited or huge budget for the rugs, he or she would want to shop for rugs that have striking designs and patterns or colorful colors. Modern designs of rugs include flowers, bold and cheerful colors, stripes, or anything that will definitely make an area of the home stand out. In general a modern piece is geometric and minimalist in design. Over the years, modern rugs are generating more sales than other style. Because of this, manufacturers are making sure that they are able to comply with every consumer’s demand. In the current market, there are many designs that top the sales. These include wool felt and leather rugs that have botanical patterns, exquisite wool rug designs, and hand-knotted rugs that are designed with flowers.
In order to successfully blend multiple area rugs with bold patterns, there are important details to keep in mind. First, be aware of where a rug’s pattern repeat begins and ends. Lay several of the same style rugs out flat on the ground. If the repeat starts and ends in the same portion of each rug, this means they will match up seamlessly once strung together. On the other hand, if the pattern repeat is inconsistent among several of the same rugs, it’s best not to use it. A few styles that are usually simple to match up include: plaid, stripes, zigzags and large-scale botanicals.
