Cozy Living RoomMany people today simply forget how terrific an area rug can be, or how much ambience it can add to a room. In the past, Oriental rugs and fabulous carpets were revered and usually only owned by the very wealth, and so they were given a much honored place. The craftsmanship ensured that many of these gorgeous rugs have been prized through the years and are still considered a work of art today. However, with so many people choosing to go with wall to wall carpeting, the humble yet lovely rug has been relegated to stuffy studies or museums.

A good area rug can not only offer a much needed splash of color to a room, but it can beckon to guests when placed invitingly under your grouped together furniture. It can also add a touch of luxury that can enhance the décor and can simply offer a touch of softness and style that pulls an entire room together.

When looking over your area rug options at Carpet Wagon, there are a few rules to keep in mind. While you are certainly free to go with any look or style you wish, if you want to make the most of your purchase, don’t settle for the first rug you see, but rather use a thoughtful approach like you would with any major purchase for your home. After all, a good area rug will be an investment and if you choose well, you could enjoy it for many years to come.

If your area rug will be placed in a high traffic area, you may want to go with something made of heavy duty fabrics or synthetics that can be treated with stain resistant products. However, if your rug will be placed in a rather out-of-the-way spot, you can get something a little more delicate.

Unless you plan on replacing your area rug anytime you get new furniture, the colors you choose for the area rug need to be well-rounded and neutral that they can fit with many types of furniture and décor. Earth tones are especially good for blending in with many types of décor, and can be used for years to come.
