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.
Who says size doesn't matter? Who would want to choose a rug that is so undersized or too big? Standard sized rugs, such as 3 x 5's and 4 x 6's, are usually placed in rooms to accentuate furniture and inglenooks. These rugs, and even smaller, can also be used in entry ways, kitchens and bathrooms as a floor mat. Larger rugs, like 6 x 9's and 9 x 12's, are commonly used for living rooms and dining rooms. Again, know where you want the rug to be placed.
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.
