Introduction to Area Rugs


It is our goal to provide you with quality area rugs that offer a positive and lasting effect on your home. To help achieve our goal, we’ve created a library of area rug knowledge, style choices, buying considerations, and maintenance tips. Area rugs can transport your rooms from ordinary to extraordinary. In fact, the fastest way to change a mood or character of a room is to add an area rug. They can go on top of any kind of flooring, usually with dramatic results.

A fabulous area rug can make a unique foundation or starting point around which your entire room’s décor can be coordinated. The rug becomes your design centerpiece. Area rugs are the only flooring product that you can install, then pick up and move. Change them from season to season or as your style changes. Area rugs offer you softness, warmth, and sound absorption on hard flooring surfaces. They add another layer of design and warmth when laid on top of wall-to-wall carpeting.

The cost spectrum of area rugs is just as wide and varied as the rugs themselves. Area rugs can be inexpensive or phenomenally expensive depending on the material used, how they were made, and the degree of artistry or intricacy in their design. Area rugs are generally made of wool, silk, olefin, nylon, or cotton.

Area rugs can be an investment that becomes your family heirloom and is passed down from one generation to the next, or they can be practical and fun design elements that move around to suit your mood.
