Bathroom Rugs. While many people opt for traditional bath mats in their bathrooms area rugs can completely change the look of the room and transform it from a utilitarian space to an extension of the overall interior design of your home. An area rug is not necessarily any more difficult to care for than a bath mat and will bring an air of elegance and a completely new design dimension into the space. Because bathrooms often have limited floor space you will want to select a rug that will accommodate all of your bathroom fixtures and furnishings while leaving a border of at least two to four inches on all sides.
Cover Worn Carpet. We'll all face worn carpets at some point and lets face it carpet replacement is a big investment that we can't all afford. An affordable area rug is a perfect way to give your room an entire new look and disguise that worn rug. Most rugs wear in the middle of the room where they get the heavier traffic and the outer foot or two often still look relatively new. So buy a huge area rug that compliments the carpet already on the floor leaving just the outer edge that's less worn exposed. You'll be amazed at how different your room looks. Area rugs are also a good way to hide a damaged or stained area of carpet.
Just about any home can be improved with the use of area rugs of good design and quality. These bound carpets come in many sizes from 2 feet by 3 feet to room size or common sizes like 6 foot by 9 feet or 4 feet by 6 feet. They come round square rectangular oval and in runners for steps and hallways. Wall to wall carpet in 12 and 15 foot goods can be cut and bound into area rugs or the makers can weave or tuft these small carpets as the end result. Where ever you need a little break from hard surface flooring or to cover a worn area in carpet consider adding an area rug.
