With all the styles and colors available choosing an area rug that integrates with your decor is a breeze. Consider the following factors when deciding upon your rug.
Consider your room’s focal point
•Choose a rug with a center medallion if you need to create a dynamic focal point.
•If your room already has a focal point, such as a fireplace choose a rug with an all-over pattern.
Consider wallpaper and upholstery patterns within your room
•If your furniture has an upholstered pattern consider choosing a rug with a more subtle pattern, or pick out an accent color and choose a solid rug.
• An ornate wallpaper also should be considered, if you choose a rug with a busy pattern the two patterns will compete with each other and create a frenetic design statement. However, if your room is more subdued choose a rug with a bold pattern to breathe life and excitement into your design. If you fancy an updated look for your room, pick an accent color from the rug and paint an accent wall in your room to coordinate.
•For high traffic areas you want to consider rugs made from durable fibers, that are easy to clean and stain-resistant.
•The main family room that is used as a gathering place would require a more durable rug than a guest room that is used twice a year during the holiday season
