Rugs Add Warmth And Beauty

Even though rugs are a design element that we walk all over, they are an important part of your interior environment and a perfect addition to create warmth, definition, and beauty in a room.

Rugs make us feel good in so many ways – by making our feet happy as we move around the house and by adding a warm finishing touch that can be playful or sophisticated, modern or traditional.

They Are Functional, Too

Area rugs also add function: They are an acoustical damper, keeping noise down from heavy footsteps and children playing. They also work to square off functional areas of a room; for example, the conversational area of a room and the dining area.

When selecting a rug, take into account the floor under the rug, too. For example, add soft wool to hard wood, smooth silk to rough stone, or thick shag to flat tile.

Choose From So Many Choices

Consider the many choices of color, style, price and material when you select a rug, such as:

  • Solid colors
  • Abstract patterns
  • Faux animal prints
  • Ethnic looks
  • Historic Oriental rug designs
  • Traditional wool or silk
  • Practical cotton or blends
  • Avantgarde designs and materials
  • Shaggy synthetic fibers

Step on it this season and add a new rug! It will add luxury and depth to your room.
