Since many contemporary rugs make a bold statement, they are great to design around. Can certainly be the focal point of the room, so if you are redesigning a room completely you may want to buy your first rug and then choose other elements in space to work with your carpet. You have to choose furniture that can work with the contemporary style of your carpet. These rugs really work great with furniture and walls of solid color or print minimal.
Entrances. Most people think area rugs are too large for an entrance but they are available in the smaller sizes. So whether you have a grand entrance or a smaller entrance you should consider making a decor statement where people enter. You could place a beautiful oval braided rug at your entrance, or a bold rectangular rug. Make it blend or stand out. Your choice. An area rug at your entrance also has some function use as well. The worst thing for your carpets is oil, dirt, and sand. Even a clean pair of shoes will track particles onto the carpet. Using an area rug will help reduce what gets tracked because it will act as a catcher. If you have a tiled or linoleum entrance it will also keep it looking cleaner as the rug can pick up the dirt or mud off of shoes and it's easily cleaner up with a vacuum.
There are other kinds of small carpets like rag, braided, sisal, chenille and shag made of various kinds of materials like cotton, silk, leather, wool and synthetic fibers. You can get area carpets for children with games and bright children's designs on them. You can get bath mats that are washable.
