After pulling up the old carpeting and padding, the homeowner found something exciting. At some time in the past, a previous owner had covered hardwood flooring with the carpeting. Rather than install new wall-to-wall carpeting, the current owner decides to have the floors cleaned and restored. That will mean finding the right type of rug for the living room. Here are some tips that will make it easier to compare Rugs and find the one that is perfect for the space.
Measuring for the New Rug
The thing to remember about using Rugs is that they need to be in scale with the rest of the room. The last thing that the homeowner wants to do is invest in a rug that looks great but happens to be a little too small for the conversation area. At the same time, a rug that is too large will end up covering an excessive amount of the hardwood and make the space look as if there is new wall-to-wall carpeting in the room. For any homeowner who is not sure how to determine the right size, getting help from a decorator is a good idea.
Choosing the Colors
When choosing a color or colors for the living room rug, draw inspiration from the other elements of the room. Typically, it’s a good idea to not use a color that is already well represented in the space. For example, if the primary color in the window treatment and the upholstery happens to be navy blue, consider using something different for the rug. Maybe the upholstery has small amounts of taupe in the design. If so, using taupe as the primary color for the rug will help to pull the color out a little more and help unify the space.
Considering the Fiber Blend
Pay close attention to the fiver blend used for the rug. The goal is to settle on something that will hold up to a lot of traffic, will not fade over time, and can be cleaned with ease. Typically, a mix of natural and synthetic fibers will provide the best results.
For anyone who is ready to invest in a rug, visit and take a look at the styles and sizes offered. With a little time and support, it will not be hard to find something that will make the space look better than ever. You can also follow them on Twitter for more updates.
