Area rugs can soften up any living space, whether indoor or outdoor. In fact, many interior decorators counsel their clients to “Begin with the rug!”

Area rugs are often used on hard-surface floors to provide a soft, cozy surface in certain areas, for example, around a bed in a bedroom or a sofa in a living room. Rugs can also be used to absorb sound and reduce the noise level in a room with a hard-surface floor.

Whether you’re beginning your interior decorating with your rug or just looking for a new home accent, Floor Coverings International in East Cincinnati can help. We have a wide variety of hand- and machine-made area rugs for all areas of the home.

Area rug categories include:

  • Oriental
  • Folk
  • European
  • Designer
  • Natural Fiber

When choosing an area rug, first consider the style and décor of the room and your home. Is it contemporary or classic? Decorative or minimalist? If you want your area rug to blend in, opt for low-key tones and simple designs. A textured rug that is slightly darker or lighter than the surrounding floor will help create visual interest.

You’ll also want to consider materials. Most area rugs are made from wool, though they can also be made out of silk, cotton, nylon, or natural fibers. Each material feels slightly different underfoot, so test them to find your favorite. We can even create custom area rugs by adding borders to any of our broadloom carpets. Imagine a soft, modern shag rug in just the right colors to turn a hard-surface floor into the coziest space in your home!

With so many options for area rugs, it can be tough to choose the right one for your home. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International in East Cincinnati help. Call or click to schedule a free in-home consultation today.
