Rugs can change the overall look of the room, so you have to keep in mind a few things while selecting a rug. First is the budget. You can get synthetic rugs for normal rates, or wool or silk rugs at very expensive rates. Then you have to decide what size you want for the room you are going to use it. Thirdly you have to decide whether you want a patterned rug or plain one, the texture of the rug, and you have to also decide the color to co-ordinate with your home decor. Rugs are of different types like Area rugs, Persian rugs, Outdoor rugs, Oriental rugs, Antique rugs etc. Rugs can be hand-woven like Hand Knotted Rugs, Hand Tufted Rugs, Hand Loomed Rugs, Flat Weave Rugs and Hooked Rugs, machine woven Rugs, or Braided Rugs which are made by hand and machine.
If you want to give your room a focal point then you can go in for area rugs. An area rug can be used to change the look of your room. Area rugs can be placed in front of the fireplace, under the dining table, under the pool table, if you have a games room, or on the carpet area which is used often. A rectangular area rug can even be used at the entrance, which will not only beautify the area, but is also a great way to stop your carpet from getting dirty. If you have a old, worn out, stained carpet, and if you cant afford a new carpet, the best thing you can do is to place a colorful area rug over it, which will altogether give your room a new look. Similarly if you have an antique piece of furniture, you can place a contemporary rug underneath it to create a focal point and bring attention to it. Carpets in the childrens room can get spoiled very fast, and placing contemporary rugs on the carpet not only protects wear and tear of the carpet, but also adds color to the room. Fun mood or serious mood can be created with these contemporary rugs, which are available in various sizes and shapes.
If you want to create an elegant look to your room, then a designer rug is the perfect choice. Designer rugs have abstract designs that look great in your room. You can choose a modern or contemporary rug, a Persian rug, Oriental rug, or Victorian rug. What ever the choice, they definitely add style to the room.
