Area rug trends to try in your homeKermans Flooring
Make the rug your focal point
Often an area rug is an accessory – and a great accessory at that – but sometimes you find a rug that has a strong color or pattern and you fall in love. In that case, design the room around the rug for a space that really shows off your personal style.
Feel free to get creative
An area rug is a fairly low cost way to redesign a space. That gives you a little more flexibility and sense of fun. Pick a circular rug, a boldly patterned rug or a bright color that plays up the accents already in the room.
Let the rug help you
Area rugs can be great additions to high traffic areas. Use a wool rug that can be cleaned easily and you’ll have less maintenance to worry about on the carpet or hardwood floor beneath it.

Don’t stop with just one
If you have a large, open room consider using more than one area rug to define spaces within the room. You can also layer a smaller area rug on top of a larger one to add texture to any size room.
Showcase a work of art
Area rugs are truly beautiful works of art – albeit works of art designed to be walked on. If you find a real treasure, look for a quiet space to show it off. A dining room or den can be the perfect room to let an area rug shine.
