Many homeowners have discovered that the proper placement of one or more colorful area rugs in their rooms and be a great way to enhance their interior décor without requiring the installation of all-new flooring. The best way to understand why this works so well is to dig a bit deeper and explore the world of colors, patterns, and textures found within today’s new area rugs. These rugs can create a ‘focal point’ of color within your rooms overall décor.
Make color work for you when using an area rug
From flooring to ceiling, color is what keeps the room together. Flooring makes up almost 30% of the color in a room. If you plan to use an area rug to be the dominant element within the room, select a patterned rug that has distinct color combinations. Use shades of color from the area rug to select paints and accessories; then extend those colors into adjacent rooms by using coordinating Karastan rugs. Durfee’s Flooring Center provides a very complete selection of Karastan area rugs for homeowners in Brunswick, Bath, Freeport, Topsham, Harpswell, and other nearby Maine communities.
The importance of a pattern in an area rug
Choosing the right area rug is a very personal choice when it comes to the pattern. Whether it is traditional or contemporary, the most important thing is how the pattern will make you feel.
Patterned rugs lend an aura of richness and intimacy to larger rooms. They also provide immediate personality and character, which will permit you to create a certain style. Mixing patterns can be a bit tricky. Keep in mind that if the patterns are related by texture, form, or color, the mix is more likely to be effective.
When used together effectively, complementary patterns are great at defining areas. Use them to define conversation areas in larger rooms, or to separate a dining area from the rest of the space. Don’t be reluctant to use them underneath tables where spills are apt to occur. Patterned rugs are far better than solid rugs when it comes to hiding spots and stains.
Karastan area rugs
If you are using your area rug under a dining room table or you have pets and children who may have accidents, you’ll want to be certain that your new area rug will be easy to clean. The best natural product for dealing with accidents is wool. Our Karastan selections of wool rugs are superior because they have built-in stain-resistant features. Their scaly structure in the wool fibers keeps dirt well up on the pile, thus making vacuuming away dirt more efficient.
Placing an area rug over hard-surfaced flooring can help with noise echoing in a room. Using plush materials like Karastan area rugs, with fabric window treatments and upholstery will help absorb sounds so that your home will be more serene and relaxing.
