Decorating With Area Rugs

Here throughout the Rockies, we love our hardwood floors. But hardwoods can be cold in the winter, and can be easily damaged in high traffic areas. Which is why many of us turn to decorating with area rugs to add protection to a room.

Before you begin shopping, it’s important to accurately measure the total width and length of your room. It’s also important to measure the functional pieces in your room. In the dining room, for example, measure the dining table and chairs. Sketch a floor plan to show furniture placement and traffic flow.

How To Properly Store Rugs

Do you like switching out your rugs for a fresh look in your décor? Do you have several rugs you rotate to prevent too much wear? It’s important to properly store your rugs to ensure a long life; to ensure they stay in top appearance throughout their lives.

The best location for storage of your rugs would be a room that is cool, dry, and where they are blocked from natural light. While it is possible to adapt many spaces in the house for rug storage, avoid using attics and basements, which are usually without climate control and suffer the largest swings in temperature and relative humidity.

How Flooring Can Make Your Room Look Bigger

While the only way to make the size of your room larger is to knock down a wall or two, there are ways to give it the appearance of being larger without going through all of that hassle.

Large Tiles
Instead of installing standard size tiles, increase the size to create the illusion of a larger square footage room. If you opt for larger tiles, select a pattern that does not include a border or design work along the edges. These details will have the same effect as small tiles and will break up the room. A smooth transition from wall to wall will create a freeflow throughout the room.
