Our homes reflect our personalities to a great extent. The way that we decorate and the various items that we place in our homes show what our tastes are like. One such way to give a statement about our lifestyle habits is the different types of carpets and accent rugs that we have placed in our homes. These carpets come in many styles and colors.
You will also find accent rugs in modern and vintage style designs. There are also accent rugs that can be used for various parts of your house. For instance you will be able to place an accent rug in your entry way or foyer. Here the accent rugs will add some color to this section of the house and protect the floor or carpet underneath from this very high traffic area.
In addition to providing color and protection for your entry way there are different styles of accent rugs that you can use here. Since accent rugs are made from a number of different materials you can choose the one that will most suit the area. You should take into account the type of flooring or base that your accent rug will be placed on. For wood floors you will need to provide a rug pad underneath the accent rug so that you will not find your self slipping across the room when you step on it.
Besides using accent rugs for high traffic areas you can use these rugs as part of your dcor styling. Accent rugs will make a wondrous difference to your dcor as you can brighten plain neutral colors with an accent rug that blends in the various accessories in your rooms. Accent rugs can be used to draw attention to various sections or features in different parts of your home.
The other great thing about buying and using accent rugs is that you can use different types of accent rugs for every season, your various moods and style desires. You can even move the accent rugs to enhance your existing carpets and rugs at home. There is also one other fact about accent rugs that you really should consider. Unlike normal large carpets which tend to stay in the house even when you are moving, accents rugs are portable.
This means that when you move into your brand new home all that you need to do is decorate your home and lay out your accent rugs to create that stunning look that you love. By the time that you have finished settling in you will see that it is time to buy some more great looking accent rugs.
