The colorful nature of rugs means you can quickly change the feel of a room by changing accessories to pick up different colors, shades and tones — an effective technique for redecorating your home as the seasons change.
Rugs are extremely versatile. They are at the top of the list for making quick decor changes and they are instant do-it-yourself luxurious makeovers. You easily can move them from room to room as your tastes evolve and if you move, you can take them with you.
Though arguably the oldest floor covering, area rugs are always fresh and new. Rugs provide what designers call “eye relief,” offering interesting colors and textures, creating special-use spaces like conversation areas and breaking up large expanses.
Today you can select from a huge variety of outdoor area rugs that will complete your patio or 3 season room. The area rug to the left is from Couristan and their outdoor rug collection is available at all Kiss Carpet Design Center showrooms as well as their ONLINE GALLERY. These rugs offer special features such as sturdy all-weather construction suitable for outdoor/indoor use, are UV stabilized and mold and mildew resistant.
The true function of the area rug is fashion. They are colorful and patterned to be intriguing. They break up an expanse of flooring like hardwood, ceramic, laminate and vinyl floors. Today’s trend among designers is to use the rug as a focal point or make a personal fashion statement, even over wall-to-wall carpet.
When decorating, think of your room in layers. For example, the floor may be hardwood or carpet, with an area rug adding another layer and the furniture is yet another layer over that. The rug provides additional color and depth, especially if the dominate rug color is repeated throughout the room. Each element in the room contributes its own hues to the overall color theme, as well as adding contrast.
There are several options when it comes to custom. Don’t worry about getting lost in the design and order process we are here to take care of that for you.
