The Beauty and Ease of an Area Rug

Need a quick, affordable way to spruce up any space in your home? Look no further! Area rugs provide a touch of warmth and coziness to any room, and are much easier to clean than wall-to-wall carpeting. But where do you start in trying to find the perfect new area rug for your home? The area rug scene is dominated by two trends: bright, imaginative and striking colors, and the neutrals: beige, greys and taupe in transitional designs. While transitional designs offer the most flexibility, it’s your décor that will determine which colors make the most sense. If your furniture or walls are splashed with pattern and colors, then a warm transitional neutral area rug will be the perfect compliment. If your décor is neutral and minimalistic, then you can be more daring and innovative with your rug choice. The experts at Floors USA can help you find the right area rug for any room in your home.

One example of new, bright and exciting area rugs is the Pantone Collection by Oriental Weavers. Oriental Weavers, the world’s largest area manufacturer, and Pantone, the world’s color authority, come together to provide a cutting edge line of rug designs. Introduced in 2014, the Pantone collection captures the essence of what is popular and trending in area rug coloration, pattern and construction. Dominated by transitional designs in bold and neutral colorations, the Pantone Collection features a broad array of area rug styles sure to fit almost any budget.

The easy to decorate Matrix Collection, a 100% handcrafted wool flat weave, features simple geometric designs with colorations in the basic neutrals to the bold horizon blue, lemon and Italian plum. Looking for something more affordable and fun? The Focus Collection combines the popular soft shag area rug with Pantone’s exciting color palette. The Focus collection has simple neutrals that will coordinate with any home décor as well bold colors such as emerald, true blue, tangerine tango and the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year, radiant orchid.

Do you have unsightly blemishes in your hardwood floors? An area rug can easily cover them up. And, if your kids accidentally spill some juice on your carpet, it’s no problem! Cleaning an area rug is much easier, and faster, than having to worry about a wall-to-wall carpet. If sound echoes throughout your dining room, lay down a gorgeous area rug and the sound instantly dampens to create an inviting space. With so many colors, designs, and patterns available to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect fit for any, and every, room in your house.
