If you are planning on redecorating any room in your home, first and foremost you should consider what you are going to do with the floor. Many people are ripping out that old style wall-to-wall carpet in favor of decorative rugs as a floor covering.
These exquisite rugs add a touch of elegance to any room and are available in thousands of patterns and color choices. In spite of their regal styling, decorative rugs are tough, long lasting, and can stand up easily to the demands of everyday wear and tear. Handmade rugs of years ago required special care, but the rugs available now are machine made and much more resilient and forgiving.
Oriental patterns remain the favorite as far as styling and colors, but decorative rugs can be purchased for any personal taste or preference. Patterns can range from modern, ultra bright colors with wild designs, (usually favored by the younger set), animal prints, block patterns, country plaids, and just about anything else you can think of.
If you have a design in mind, chances are you can find decorative rugs in the patterns you are looking for. Take a look online at some of the choices offered by the various rug companies and manufacturers. You will be amazed at what you find.
Years ago, every home had decorative rugs on the floor of each and every room. Not only did these rugs add warmth to the floor, but they also lent a certain air of elegance and personality to the room itself. The rug tied the room together when combined with furnishings and accessories that were used to compliment the décor. Unfortunately, the use of these rugs faded over time as wall-to-wall carpet became more popular, and many people switched. In recent years, however, beautiful decorative rugs have begun to make a comeback as more and more people realize just how a room can be enhanced with this one element.
There are some decorative rugs that are so stunning they can take your breath away, and a rug like this can actually make the whole room. In fact, many interior decorators design the room around the rug, choosing wall paint from certain colors in the rug, and furnishings that will compliment the pattern or design of the floor covering.
The same method applies to the window coverings and whatever accessories are used to decorate the room. The whole concept of design from start to finish is drawn from the rug that will decorate the floor.
You may be redecorating a room for your child or teenager, and there are many, many rug designs to choose from in every color of the rainbow. Younger people seem to love the bright, wild colors and designs, and a rug of their choice may not be what you have in mind, but for the room of a young person it fits extremely well in the scheme of things.
The great thing about decorative rugs is that unlike wall-to-wall carpet, it can be changed with minimal fuss. They are not permanently affixed to the floor, and can be changed whenever the mood strikes to redecorate, and it isn’t going to cost a fortune to do it.
