This weekend why not take a trip down to your nearest home and garden retailer to pick up a few new area rugs? They'll add a dash of color and make for a fun change. Check out these essential area rugs that can add just the right finishing touches to your home.
The Welcome Mat
Starting at your doorway, you can greet friends and family in a stylish way. Find a nice welcome mat to provide a friendly greeting and save your floors from dirty track marks.
In many homes, after the doorway the hallway and stairs (if applicable) are the first major focal points. Place a runner on either spaces to create a more polished effect.
The Living Room Showcase Rug:
Folks spend a lot of time hanging out with family in the living room, so be sure the rug you choose for it reflects the energy that you bring to that space. Choose something that you like to look at, but that also draws attention to a specific spot in the room, whether it's a large sofa or a large cozy chair.
The Bedside Rug:
A bedroom is the place of rest, and should reflect a sense of calm and peace. Keep your area rug in harmony with the rest of the room, and consider a nicely textured rug so that your feet will have a soft spot to land at the beginning and end of each day.
