Choosing Area Rugs for the Home With Tips From

EMPORIA, KS--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - "That rug really tied the room together." If you recognize this quote from "The Big Lebowski," you already know the importance of a good area rug, and what it can do for your home. If not, you don't need to see the movie to learn important tips on choosing the best area rugs for your home, says the best name in area rugs,

"Your area rug will play a very versatile role in your home, so it's important to choose carefully when looking for rugs for the home," said a representative. "The three main factors you need to consider when looking at area rugs are size, design and durability or wear."

When choosing the size of the rug, consider what the rug's ultimate purpose will be. Will it be used to create a central focal point in room or separate a larger room into smaller sections? The size of the room will also determine the size of the area rug necessary.

When choosing the design of the rug, consider the statement the rug will make. Is it going to be used as a stand-alone conversation starter, or is it going to be more subtly placed under a piece of furniture? Either way, choosing a rug that features a few of the different colors from other furniture in the room is a really great way to tie the room together as mentioned above.

When it comes to durability or wear, consider the amount of traffic going through the area where the rug will be. If the rug will be in a high traffic area, consider one with a thick, deep pile. If pets are in the home, consider a low pile area rug to make pet hair removal easier. Homes with kids can always benefit from area rugs treated with a stain guard as well.
