Area rugs are a great way to show your more adventurous side. Bold and colourful patterns may take you out of your comfort zone, but they are a great piece for adding a bit of the unexpected to a room. Still, you'll want to choose colours that blend with other design elements of your room so that even as a focal point your rug ties in with your overall décor.
Area rugs come in so many different and unique styles it's sometimes hard to decide which type would best suit your needs. You may have an idea in mind as to which type of rug you'd like to purchase. Or you may need more detailed information to make the right choice. Some styles are named after the region or area where they originated. Others are known for certain characteristics or specific uses. Let's look at three different styles that hopefully will help you make an informed decision when shopping for a special rug.
Increasing the life of your area rug: Did you know that rugs wear out from the underside first? This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.
