Selecting a rug for your room isn’t much different from choosing art for your walls. The right color, design and texture will transform the look and feel of your space in minutes. Layered over carpet, hardwood, laminate or tile, your choice can provide a subtle complement, or bold contrast, to your flooring choice.
No matter your taste or preference, FLOORMAX offers area rugs in a wide range of styles and designs.
A few tips to get you started:
- Color: The color on your floor has a big impact on the feel of the room—so it’s important to give it serious consideration when you’re rug shopping. Light-colored rugs make a room seem airy and more spacious, while darker styles create an intimate feel.
- Design: Rug designs usually fall into contemporary, traditional, or transitional categories. Generally, geometrics and simple patterns work well in contemporary rooms, while florals and other organics are nice in traditional spaces. Solid rugs are increasingly chosen to offer a chic, simple look. But if the activity level is high at your house, keep in mind that patterned rugs are more forgiving and less likely to show stains.
- Fiber: Rugs come in both natural and man-made fibers. Wool, silk, cotton and jute are natural fibers—often prized for their appealing appearance, warmth and, in the case of wool and silk, their luster. But rugs of these fibers are often relatively expensive. Rugs of man-made fibers like nylon and polypropylene are usually far cheaper. While these rugs have an elegance that mimics that of natural-fiber rugs, they’re more durable and easier to maintain.
