Clients often ask, where do you start in choosing the colors and elements in a room? We believe most rooms start with the foundation of a rug because it anchors the space and creates a base of texture, color or pattern that has the most impact. Rugs are a great jumping off point. Start with a wonderful rug and the rest will fall into place. It sets the tone of a room, whether that be a casual elegance or a more formal feel, rugs set the mood.
Choosing a rug that reflects the overall mood of the room, that special color or neutral you are going for, as well as the texture and the way the room is used, is critical to making the right selection. Rooms that have high traffic with kids, dogs, sandy feet, require a performance rug that can with-stand the use. Indoor/outdoor rugs are a great choice in high traffic areas. Rugs come in a variety of materials. Everything from polyester for high performance to cotton, wool, sisal and jute.
Rugs are good for indoors as well as outdoors. Rugs made for outdoors are designed and constructed to stand up to rain, sunshine and the elements. From the backings to the materials used to treat the product, manufacturers produce these rugs to be durable and they are also a great choice for indoors. Outdoor rugs create an inviting setting on any patio or deck.
