Images Of Area Rugs For Any Room – Looking at the best interior design magazines or any good interior decorator’s portfolio, you will find that about 80-90% of the rooms pictured have area rugs to anchor the look. They are used by the experts to decorate, emphasize, define, and complement the room and the furniture in it, and are absolute necessities in creating a well decorated space.
Images of area rugs in the living room, area rugs can create cozier conversational groupings, protect hardwood floors or carpeting, and also pull together colors in the design scheme. You’ll want to make sure you pick a rug, or rugs that fit with your room layout and furniture. If your room is small, with one conversation grouping, choose an almost room-sized rug. For bigger rooms with more than one seating area, create cozier spaces with at least two different rugs. 8 X 10 or 9 X 12 are the most common sizes used in most living rooms, but again, adjust that to your personal preference. Just keep in mind that all the furniture in a grouping should have the front feet on the area rug, and there shouldn’t be more than two feet of empty rug extending behind the furniture.

Images of area rugs in bedrooms, area rugs can warm cold floors and make the room cozy. Options here include long runners on either side of the bed, and even at the foot of the bed, or an area rug underneath that extends out about three feet on the sides of the bed. Images of area rugs in hallways, placing runners over carpeting and up the stairs is great for keeping these higher traffic areas clean and making them more interesting. Hallways should allow about six inches on either side to look best. The look can be casual as with a sisal runner, or much more formal, with an elegant wool runner accented with brass stair rods.
