4 Facts and Purposes of Area Rugs

February 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 164

Generally, where furniture is concerned, most people choose to go to a shop, look around, get a feel for the piece, sit on it and inspect it as they want to see how it could fit in to their homes. It is necessary, they believe, to be able to check for faults or be assured of a warranty or replacement, and then decide on the basis all the above factors and of course their budget whether to buy it or not. While online shopping does not provide the feel of shopping, it most certainly makes it convenient for busy people to make purchases. And in most cases, exchanges, replacements or money back guarantees are provided just as they are offline. So a lot of the risk involved in buying a product that was not self-inspected is erased. However, whether you buy any home decoration online or through direct retail, you should know where you are going to use them and how the piece is going to add to the overall ambience of your home.

Area rugs are one such decorative item. They serve a variety of purposes:

• They can be used to cover whole floors or just certain areas depending on the style, tone and design of the room.

• They add to the look of the room and enhance its aesthetic value. However, area rugs can be a challenging purchase as the number of options available is staggering.

• There are a lot of styles, varieties and makes available. You can go for the handmade or the machine manufactured rugs. You can also pick a graceful classical, Oriental, Persian or Turkish design. There are endless choices when it comes to shapes, sizes and designs.

• Patterns such as curvilinear, geometric and pictorial add to the beauty of the rug. However, in rooms that are designed to bring in various motifs, it might be a good idea to stick to a simple geometric pattern. Those rooms that have an understated elegance can use curvilinear patterns or even pictorial patterns. These enhance the drama of the room or the piece of furniture under which they have been kept.

However, there is some initial research to be done before you are ready to purchase a rug. Measurements must be taken of the areas that you wish to see covered by a rug, whether small or large, like under the dining room table, or under a drawing room table or going up to the entire room being covered. In most cases, some standard sizes, which might be a few inches more or less depending on your requirements, can be purchased.

There are various other things that have to be kept in mind as well. Area rugs can either enhance or detract from the tone of the room so they have to be chosen with great care. It is necessary not to spend a bomb on area rugs as with suitable planning and survey, they can be bought at great prices and are good value for the money.
