Thoughts for Creative Area Rug in the Interiors

Homes and offices have always been a challenge for creative interior designers. While most go for a rules which are well defined and have been accepted in all the homes, some try to mend ways to give it a complete new look. Furniture and painted walls do spell changes but area rug often takes care of your basics. With different ways to put rugs in your dining room and living room, you can always out your views and creation into it. While many use all four legs-on-rugs rule, others opt for just front legs of the sofa. While all four look symmetrical, the front half of the couch usually is kept over the rug so that the table and furniture around looks symmetrical.

Front legs on the rug, back legs off.

There are many other patterns by which you can easily make you living room neat and tidy.  If you put the furniture over the area rug, the look is more comfortable and easy.

All legs on the rug.

And if the same is done opposite it gives a distinct appearance to the space. This can be your way of putting thing if the carpet is smaller in width. The complete carpet flooring may not be so in, you can give it a variation by leaving some 18 inches of floor around the rug. While this is a classic put up, a small room can be done by leaving less; it gives a unique outlook to the inner space.

No legs on the rug.

18 inches of bare floor around the rug.

And if you are thinking to carpet the bedroom as well, cover slightly in the sides, or at the front with a small rug, both these ideas will work wonderfully well in your private space. The contemporary and classic gallery style houses still use the rugs in the walking area.Rolling from end to end gives your path a longer look which is more proportioned.

Just a few inches of floor around the rug.

Style it your own very way or use it the classical way, with rugs you just need to keep the look minimal and trendy. Use rounds, square or rectangle patterned rugs to give your furniture a all new flooring. Give it a thought and create your own interiors!{picture sources: 1,2,3,4 and 5}.
