About Area Rugs
You can change the entire ambiance of a room without a major renovation by simply adding a new area rug. There is nothing more satisfying than updating the entire look of a room without having to roll up your sleeves and do any work. The only thing that takes time related to area rugs is narrowing down the choice that will make turn your room from drab to fab. You may decide that your room feels a bit dated and you really want to bring it into this century. Contemporary rugs can add color, geometric design, and flare to an otherwise traditional space. Or perhaps classic is more your style. A traditional wool or silk hand knotted design may be the perfect accent to your great hall or for strategic placement under your grand piano. Or maybe you want a throw down area rug that will help your little one learn their ABC’s and 123’s without the worry about what a leaky diaper or Sippy cup might do to the carpet. Perhaps you want to train Fido that THIS is your spot, and a small throw down is the perfect cue. Or you need that designated space in the garage to whip off the work boots and sports cleats before coming into the house. Whatever the reason, there are classic, contemporary, funky, educational, and utilitarian rugs in standard (4x6, 5x8, 8x10, 10x13…) and nonstandard sizes, shapes, and designs. From hundreds of thousands of dollars to just a small fistful, you can buy the area rug that brightens up your space, sets the tone, and meets your needs. The only difficulty is finding just one.
