"The key to choosing the perfect rug is two-fold: be prepared with room measurements before you go shopping and come in with an open mind, ready to decorate your home.

Kalaty Rug Corporation, a family-owned leading supplier of handcrafted area rugs, provides timely information on how to decorate with area rugs in your family home this season. When done correctly, area rugs can define a family’s personality and create harmony in the home.
Area rugs not only add style to family homes, but they help define living space. One of the main functions of a rug is tying a room together with a common theme by unifying whatever furnishings are placed upon it.
“Because area rugs come in a variety of styles, shapes, sizes, and materials, it can be intimidating when you are choosing a piece to enhance your décor,” said VP Marketing of Kalaty, Kamran Kalaty. “The key to choosing the perfect rug is two-fold: be prepared with room measurements before you go shopping and come in with an open mind, ready to decorate your home.”
Choosing the right size area rug for the seating area of a home can be difficult. First, measure the perimeter of the entire seating area before going shopping. The rug should be slightly larger than the space. By letting the rug run beneath the furniture, the mind will be tricked into believing the rug continues indefinitely, making the space feel larger.
Often times, there are several defined living spaces in one room. When using more than one rug in a room, never use the same size rug for both living spaces. A space that utilizes two area rugs similar in size will create the illusion that the room is cut in half. The rugs should have complimentary colors and patterns to one another so the room does not appear jarring.
Don’t assume that an area rug has to be rectangular. While these styles of rugs tend to be the most popular, the group of furniture should dictate the shape of your rug. Establishing the furniture that will be in the room first, helps when selecting a rug.
The newest floor trend, according to HGTV, is layering area rugs. This trend breaks many of the conventional decorating rules. Area rugs that are layered can help create a uniform border around a favorite rug that is too small for the living space or create a relaxed bohemian style by using rugs of varying patterns.
