Area Rugs

You've probably heard that an area rug really ties a room together, but a tied-together room is not as simple as picking the first rug you see and rolling it out on the floor. If you want to be happy with your floor coverings for many years to come, keep these tips in mind while you're online shopping for area rugs.
Get the right size. This often means going bigger than you may have expected. Ideally, your rug will be large enough that the legs of your furniture sit on it. Always measure the room before you order anything online, and with rugs, it's a good idea to use painter's tape on the floor to visualize what the size will look like.
Choose your style based on the look of your room or the look you want the room to have, as the rug will either enhance or dictate the style of the room where you place it. Contemporary rugs showcase the latest trends, and casual rugs help a home feel cozy and unpretentious. Persian rugs look great with almost any kind of decor because they have a traditional look. Transitional rugs are somewhere in the middle, with a mix of contemporary and traditional elements, which works beautifully in many of today's homes. Choose your material based on the amount of traffic the rug will see. A busy entryway or a kitchen needs a durable material that's easy to clean, like synthetic fiber or cotton. Your living room, on the other hand, is a place for a beautiful wool or silk blend rug. Pets, kids, and your own tendency toward spills should also influence your rug material choice.
After you've made those decisions, you're at the fun part: choosing color and pattern! Choose it like art: If it makes your eyes happy, then it's a candidate. Try using the "Save for Later" button and then comparing all of your final choices; that makes it much easier to narrow it down to one perfect rug. Then all you need to do is finish off your order with a rug pad, and sit back and wait for your rug to show up at your door.
