Color-wise, rugs that are placed on receiving areas should have a light and soft shade; thus, giving the room a warm and cozy feel. Should you place rugs under dark-colored furniture that you intend to make the center of attraction, make sure you select lighter toned rugs and simpler designs to highlight the fixtures. This also works with hardwood floors of darker shades. Nonetheless, if you plan to set an area rug as the focal point of the room, select rugs with intense colors and intricate designs; provided that the rooms motif is simple and wouldn't contrast with the rug's pattern.
An area rug is often the defining feature of a room and, with this in mind, should be selected with care. The rug you choose will set the tone for the overall feel of the space and will be the factor that ties in all of the different components of the décor. If you have a large space that is divided into more than one area of use, rugs can bring these spaces together as a harmonious whole, or can be used to further define the different regions of the room to give the feel of separate living areas.
Area rugs are ideal for protecting wood or tile floors and bring warmth, texture and depth to any space they occupy. Choosing the area rug that is right for your space, your lifestyle and your décor preferences is largely a matter of personal taste, and the only real rules that should be followed are those guidelines you establish for what you want out of your area rugs and what will work best for you and your family.
