Indoor and Outdoor Rugs
Rugs are an important element of interior design that help to anchor furniture, tie in accent colors, and create a complete, stylish look. Whether you’re decorating the inside or the outside of your home, these woven wonders are excellent accessories that can instantly add color, pattern, texture, and warmth to a space. Visit a Living Spaces store and feast your eyes on hundreds of rugs in a number of shapes, styles, and sizes.
Area rugs are ideal for decorating indoor spaces such as a bedroom or living room. Outdoor rugs work stunningly on patios, porches, and decks. Versatile indoor outdoor rugs can be both soft and spill resistant−these practical pieces can be placed anywhere! Round area rugs often act as an accent piece in the way that they create a striking point of interest in any room. Runners work best in narrow spaces like hallways, staircases, and entryways.
For example, on−trend wall art ideas include: grouping similar framed wall art to spell out the first letter of your name or to create the shape of a heart. Or a cross. Another fun wall art idea for dog (or cat) lovers is to group whimsical pet-themed canvases (and you’ll find many to choose from on our site!) The only real rule is that there are no rules except that you must love the final result!
Wondering how you can decorate your home with rugs?
Area rugs can be used in unique ways to create different aesthetics. Try using a round rug to echo the shape of a round dining table. Or go with round outdoor rugs for poolside parties and play. Take a chance on two matching long runner rugs placed on either side of your bed. Select large room size rugs for children’s playrooms or bedrooms. Give the classic rectangle rug under the coffee table a shot in the living room.
No matter where you place it, always make sure to place a rug pad underneath your rug. Not only do rug pads increase the life of a rug, they also make using rugs safer and more comfortable. Rug pads create a cushioned walking surface and help keep the rug in place, preventing the rug’s shifting and bunching up. Additionally, rug pads help to protect your floor from color transfer and scratches.
Ever wonder how to clean area rugs?
Here are some general tips for rug maintenance. When vacuuming the rug, be sure to turn off the beater bar or to instead use the hose attachments. Spot clean spills immediately by blotting the rug with a clean white cloth. For major spills or tough stains, a professional rug cleaner is recommended.
To make your rug last even longer, make sure to follow its specific care and cleaning instructions − these can be found on the bottom of the rug.
