There is good reason an area rug should carpet a room. They’re practical, providing cushion, comfort, and warmth over a concrete, tile or wood floor. But they also provide artistic value to a room’s design. Considered artwork for the floor, which acts as the frame, size does matter — and it’s often a big concern for the homeowner unsure of how to create that well-balanced space.
So designers say start with the rug first. From its design, you can choose colors to paint your walls and find throw pillows and paintings to complete the decor. Just make sure to follow this rule of thumb: The area rug should be a minimum of six inches and no more than two feet away from the wall.
When you take into consideration the different uses of an area rug, shapes and design preferences, however, other factors weigh in as well.
Area rugs are a great addition to your lobby, hallways and other uncarpeted spaces that add to the décor and help protect the floors. However, they are usually placed in high traffic areas and can become dirty quickly. Chem-Dry professionals are trained to clean virtually all types of rugs, from Oriental to Persian.
