Use in Open Spaces. The open-concept has been around for years now and is still highly favored by the majority of decorating professionals and homeowners. Large or small round rugs are perfect for these areas because they help define spaces. It could be an eating area, spot for reading or snuggling in front of a fireplace, or area for cooking to name a few. It is best to set furnishings into groups that are square but surrounding a round rug. They can also be layered on top of square or rectangle rugs. If this method is chosen, place the front legs of the furniture on the rectangle rug, and then place the small round rug on top.
Define the Dining Area - Just because your home lacks a traditional dining room, doesnt mean you cant have one. In this contemporary living space, a large rug creates a dining area. Without walls to create tangible zones, a rug is needed to organize the space into useful areas. When choosing an area rug for under your table and chairs, make sure the rug is large enough for the chairs to scoot back from the table without falling off the edge of the rug.
Area rugs are often intended to define and delineate space. If your rug is too big for the area you are decorating you will be tempted to tuck the edges of the rug under your heavier pieces of furniture. When heavy furnishings are placed on an area rug they can often cause bunching and wrinkling where the furniture legs are indenting their selves into your rug. This can cause the most beautiful and expensive rugs to look cheesy and warped. Indents, wrinkles and warping of rugs from heavy furnishings can also become more permanent.
Many people think that, because they have hardwood floors, they cannot use a floor covering. While the decision to cover a hardwood floor is entirely up to the homeowner, they should never feel discouraged from using a floor covering. The right pattern and color will enhance the natural beauty of the wood and pull the room together in a way that would otherwise not be easy to achieve. When carpets are placed on hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors, they tend to slide around. Use a non-slip pad to keep the area rug in place without damaging the floors with adhesive strips or glue. This makes it possible to move the floor covering without damaging the finish of the floors underneath the carpet. Best of all, the non-slip pad provides an added layer of cushion, making the floor covering that much more comfortable to walk on.
