Focal Point. Use an area rug to create a focal point in your room. A family room, rec room, games room, or living room are all excellent candidates for a focal point area rug. If you have a games room a rectangular rug beneath the pool table looks awesome. If you have a fireplace an area rug in front of the fireplace adds elegance and luxury and it's a comfy place to sit and enjoy the fire. Now an area rug has another benefit. It will save wear and tear on your carpet, especially if you place it in the high traffic areas. Choose something that stands out from your room decor or blends in. Your choice, let your creative juices flow.
Rug placement most probably is one of the factors that you might want to consider first in selecting a rug. It is important to know where the rug is going to be placed. As you consider the placement of the rug, the other factors will follow: such as color, materials and size.
No matter what your home style or your individual decorating taste, rugs help you to define and individualize that space. Braided rugs, oriental rugs, wool rugs, it doesn't matter, because they all come in such a wonderful variety of colors, sizes and shapes that your individual taste and color schemes can be perfectly satisfied. Your budget can also be a key factor in choosing the rug that's just right for you. You can choose a discount rug that will last a season, or an expensive heirloom rug which you will be proud to hand down to your children's children.
