Just because a room has wall-to-wall carpeting doesnt mean it cant benefit from a decorative runner or floor covering. Large spaces of plain carpeting can wash out furniture and reduce the impact that interior design elements have on the space. Adding bold patterns or colors to the floor can help break up those plain spaces. Dont settle for boring flooring. Add color and pattern with a decorative floor covering and enhance the impact of the rooms interior design elements.
Single backed area rugs only need a small amount of latex to keep them bonded while secondary backing rugs need more latex to secure the backing material. If the rug maker uses synthetic latex for bonding, your nose will be happy. It will only have a new rug smell for a short period of time. If your rug maker uses a lot of real latex to secure a secondary backing, it will most likely stink of burnt rubber for years to come. Especially when the weather gets hot. Most noses and eyes are sensitive to real latex in larger doses. If you have chemical sensitivities, stick to single backed area rugs that dont use heavy applications of synthetic latex.
The most common mistake people make when buying a new floor covering is selecting one that is too small for the space. While it may seem counterintuitive, select a carpet that is slightly larger than the furniture or space it will be used in. This way, the room will feel larger and the furniture will look more tied in, even if the pieces do not match entirely. Round tables, whether they are side tables or large dining tables, look best with round floor coverings underneath them. Choose an option with the same shape as the table to unify the look of the room. Also, ensure that the carpet is proportionate to the table itself. Keep in mind that rectangular carpets tend to work best in living rooms and sitting areas where furniture is clustered together.
Small Round Rug or Square? It can be difficult deciding on a safe, square rug or a large or small round rug when it comes to the space in question. Take into consideration the area of the floor and what size would be best. A great trick is to use masking tape to get an idea. There are also many suppliers of area rugs online that will allow you to easily visualize the rug in your space by pulling it up on the computer whilst in the room. This is not something that is easily accomplished in a brick and mortar store.
