Rug placement most probably is one of the factors that you might want to consider first in selecting a rug. It is important to know where the rug is going to be placed. As you consider the placement of the rug the other factors will follow: such as color materials and size.
Accent On Hardwood Floors. Hardwood floors have made a big comeback in the past few years. And they are beautiful! But too much can be a bit overwhelming and they don't retain any heat so in the cooler months you can find your footsies getting chilly. Using an area rug in a large room such as a living room can add a beautiful focal point to the room and accentuate your hardwood floors even more. It will also keep the floor warmer and cozier. Because there are so many types of areas to choose from you won't have any problem finding one that works. You can choose from Persian rugs Oriental rugs Southwestern rugs traditional styles or contemporary styles.
Know what room you want it to be positioned so as to know a rug's function; whether it stands as a mere floor covering or a wall décor. Pondering on a rug's function will allow you to consider the material of the rug. For rooms with heavy foot traffic like living rooms and dining areas choose a rug that is made with fibers that are resilient to dirt and stains; specifically natural fibers like wool. If you wish to use an area rug as a wall décor (like tapestries) choose rugs made of natural silk; since silk tends to last better than other natural materials because of its delicate and lustrous quality.
