Area rugs in Willow Grove, PA from Easton Flooring

How to match area rugs to your living room style

An area rug is an accent rug that doesn?t extend to the wall. It?s a great alternative to wall-to-wall carpet, mainly because it's so easy to clean?pull it up and shake.

We also know that all rooms are not perfect squares, so you may need a non-standard size or shape. That's why we have our custom rug department. So, see us when shopping for an area rug in Willow Grove, PA.

Consider your overall decor

Follow the same rules as you would broadloom. Nothing needs to be an exact match, but everything should harmonize to have a cohesive look.

There should be no clashing colors. The decor should be cohesive. If your home has a rustic atmosphere, don't choose a very modern-looking one!

Setting the tone

Look at your overall room interior plan. The rug anchors the room and sets the mood.

Light colors are bright and airy, while dark colors can be cozier and more intimate. In addition, there are both warm and cool tones.

When choosing colors for area rugs, It?s a good idea to invest $25 or so for a color wheel. This way, you can see how colors work together.

Color basics

You should highlight two or three primary colors in the room. You might pick the rug's secondary color to coordinate with the sofa and the third color to coordinate with walls or accessories.

Consider balance. If the sofa is in a solid color, the rug can have a pattern and vice versa.

Accent and highlight: Layer an area rug to add some color to a neutral or to calm an overly patterned, bold-colored carpet.

Size: getting it right

In the living room, the rugs should be big enough to fit under significant pieces of furniture with a 12 to 18-inch extension of bare floor.

If that's not possible, it's perfectly acceptable to anchor the rug under the front legs. Just be sure there's also that 12 to 18-inch extension.
