Area rugs give you an easy and inexpensive means of warming up any room in your home. You also can add a splash of color or introduce an interesting texture with an area rug. Start by finding the right size of rug to fit the space you have. You then can select from multiple shapes of area rugs, such as round, rectangular, or square. Area rugs have many different patterns and colors available. This allows you to emphasize certain colors in your decor. Additionally, some rugs are solid colored, which makes them more complementary to your current style. If you’re concerned about area rugs sliding around, place the rug’s edges under furniture legs. You also can use carpet tape or a rug pad underneath the area rug.
