Large floor coverings such as rugs and carpets can make your rooms look larger than they really are. Area rugs can be used to break up large empty walls and make large rooms appear more alive. A good way to use area rugs in a smaller room is to create a focal point. Smaller floor coverings such as rugs can be used to turn an empty lounge room into a relaxing space with some decorative oriental rugs and carpeting. These types of areas also make great study or recreation areas where the floor length can be changed and the size used to fit a couch, recliner chair, or even a small table.
Large floor coverings of either 8×10 area rugs or larger ninex12s are best suited for large, feasting areas such as dining and breakfast areas. This rug style works well with buffet tables or side boards that will hold a variety of foods and drinks. You could even add some lighting with some well-placed halogen spot lights on the buffet table. Another great idea is to add decorative pillows on the buffet table to enhance the look of the large rug area. Oriental rug styles work best with solid colors, but you may find that they work with lighter colors to give them a unique look that no other carpet or rug style would have.
Smaller feasting areas could use shaggy carpet for a fun, vintage look, or even shag area rugs that are cut slightly smaller than regular Persian rugs so that they will still keep the fun look of shag. You could also use a geometric area rug design or even a combination of geometric rug styles to create interest. Large shaggy carpeting such as those sold by Persian Paper Company can be used for kids’ rooms. These smaller sized carpets can easily be worked into a child’s room to create an interesting look that will still look great after a few years pass.
Another option when looking for foot traffic would be to use carpet tiles. Tiles are not a good choice of foot traffic area because it is cold feet don’t like to walk on the cold floor. In addition, these types of carpets take up quite a bit of room, which means you will need to leave room in your room or even a closet to put them in. Persian rugs are very warm and are often perfect for winter when you want to add warmth to a room. The warmth will liven up the room even if there isn’t too much foot traffic.
You can also choose to purchase a rug that comes with a color scheme already picked out for the specific area where you want to put the carpet. However, it is recommended that you pick out a color scheme first before you go out and buy the rug. You should first make sure the room is adequately decorated for the carpet to go with. You should also consider the mood you want to create. An extremely warm and inviting room can easily be created with a bold colored rug while a more formal room can benefit from subtle and more neutral tones.
