Southwest Area Rugs Add Personality

Jun 11, 2008
Well placed area rugs are a great choice for home decor. They coordinate well with any type of preexisting flooring, including hardwood and carpet. There are a myriad of different shapes, styles, textures, and colors available, so spend some time researching the rugs that complement your house the best.

A little Internet exploration will reveal that there are a multitude of area rug styles from which to select. Southwest area rugs, animal print area rugs, all natural area rugs, Persian rugs, and even bamboo rugs will surface in your search. Of those, one of the more popular styles is the Southwest area rug.

When people hear the phrase 'Southwestern style area rugs', they often have a specific style in mind, and are surprised by the range of colors and patterns that actually exist in the Southwestern style. Some of the Southwestern styles rugs are more in line with the older, more traditional, Native American designs, but others are in a much more contemporary styling which makes for a much more eclectic decorating style for any room.

Many Southwest area rugs retailers also have an interesting collection of natural area rugs and animal print area rugs. If you are creative, it is possible to mix and match several styles of rugs while decorating a house. It never hurts to ask for the opinion of a decorator working at the store when you are shopping.

Some Southwest area rugs stress function over style with designs that are less busy or colorful and more quiet and blending. These rugs, while still decorative, are often used for the purpose of keeping distance between cold hardwood floors and bare feet. Area rugs can also be used to keep furniture in place and protect bare floors from scratching that can occur. Area rugs can also be used to absorb sound in an echo-y room of a house or apartment building.

Personal style is really the most important part of which rug you choose. Any decorator will be able to help you see the way that the colors of the rug will interact with the style of your furniture, but you are the one that will be living with the choice of rug that you make. Be certain that you choose the rug that you love.
