As we continue with National Color Therapy Month, we thought we would share this infographic courtesy of Hadeed Carpets on the different color variations of oriental rugs!  In addition, we are sharing a few tips on how to best select an area rug that will meet the specific needs of your home.

An empty room may be designed around an area rug, or a rug may put the final touches on an existing room. When designing a room around an area rug, use the rug colors to decide upon furniture, paint or paper color. A well-chosen area rug can coordinate patterns, furniture, and wall prints to complete a room design.

Furniture may be selected around rug colors and design. Area rugs are an effective method to mix patterns that have the same color palette. Deep colored area rugs provide warmth and intimacy, while lights colored rugs can open a room and provide a more spacious feeling. When selecting an area rug around existing furniture, bring a swatch of the predominant pattern in the room.

Evaluate the size of the space and the area to cover. Larger area rugs provide comfort and benefit acoustics in a large space. Area rugs also enhance areas in bedrooms, kitchens and other smaller areas that may require a splash of color or warmth.

There are a variety of area rugs made from synthetic and natural yarns.

Machine-made area rugs are less expensive, yet similar in appearance to handmade area rugs.

Circular and other uniquely shaped rugs can present a design alternative to rectangular or square shapes.
