DS Tip Of The Week: Magical Area Rugs

OK, it’s not quite Aladdin and his magic carpet… but you can use the magic of area rugs to transform your space in an easy and affordable way.

Just like the Genie in Aladdin, Steinhafel’s Decorating Solutions Interior Decorator Beth Kealy is here to make your design wishes come true!

Beth explains, “The addition of an area rug can add color, pattern, interest, sound control, and comfort to any room. Pictured below are many examples where solid colored leather or fabric pieces can be dressed up by an area rug. By adding this work of art to your floor, you can add the pop to any room. Drawing from the sofa color and wall colors, working with the pattern in your throw pillows can help in selecting an area rug that will compliment your other pieces and tie the room together. Whatever your style, there’s an area rug that could be added to complete your look.”

As you can see, the possibilities are endless! Beth adds, “Area rugs can be used over carpets, hardwood, or tile flooring. You should always include a rug pad to prevent slipping, rug movement, prevent color transfer between surfaces, and to provide comfort when walking, while adding greater sound control. At Steinhafels we stock mostly 8 x 10’s and 5 x 7’s, however many other sizes and shapes are available on a custom order. If you need assistance in selecting the perfect rug for your room, our designers are here to offer their expert advice.”
