Contemporary, traditional, transitional or any style at all – no matter what type of interior design you prefer in your home, area rugs will add another dimension that can be anything from cozy to whimsical…and they can serve practical purposes, too. We’d like to share with you just a few of the ways area rugs can enhance and complete any space in your home.
Carpeting remains a popular choice for bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms because of its ability to bring an aura of warmth and dimension that virtually no other material can match. A carpet also serves to lend a finished look to a room, which is why you see large area rugs used even in rooms with gleaming hardwood floors.
Carpet is a soft and comfortable choice of flooring in the home. But if you own a dog or cat (or both), you’ll need to spend a little extra time cleaning and maintaining it. While all flooring types will attract pet hair and dander, carpet is particularly susceptible to this. So, what steps can you take as a pet owner to keep your carpet clean?
Carpet is still one of the most popular flooring choices around, providing comfort, softness underfoot, and a finished look. But deciding which type of carpet is right for both your budget and your needs is sometimes puzzling. For example, should you choose wool, which has been used for centuries to weave fine carpets, or should you invest less and choose a synthetic fiber, and if so, which one?
Carpeting can set the tone for your entire interior design scheme, so you want to make the best possible choice to suit your lifestyle and reflect your own personal tastes. This year’s carpeting choices range from classic solids and bold statement patterns to striking colors and plenty of eco-friendly selections.
Warmer colors in varying neutral shades of taupe and gray are serving as the balance for bolder tones; bolstered by texturing from ribbed to geometric shapes, carpeting trends are incorporating more interest. This is one of the reasons why cut-and-loop carpeting has made a major comeback – the combination of loops with cut pile results in great texturing and opportunities for beautiful color combinations. Patterned carpeting in contrasting or coordinated shades is a perfect way to add movement and interest to a monochromatic room design.
