Living Room

Your living room is your statement room. From spending time with your family to weekend relaxation, your living room is often the first room to evolve with the changing styles because it’s where you spend so much of your time. Patterned area rugs are a current trend for their show-stopping look. Try nylon; you’ll get that perfect symmetry without losing the softness.

Dining Room

Let’s face it; we all love to eat straight out of the refrigerator. But for entertaining and special occasions, your dining room has all the makings to become the best restaurant in town. Dark, deep shades can add to the formal and structured nature of a dining room. Try wool for extra wear resistance and a beautiful, natural feel.

After a long day all you want to do is fall into bed and relax. An area rug can help make the path a little smoother. And with one like this, it won’t take much for you to make time to stop and smell the roses. Try olefin for a crisp, clean look. Olefin will not pill, fuzz or mildew, so your rug will look fresh and new for years to come.

Play/Rec Room

For a room for the kids, you want a soft, inviting color with a plush feel since most of the playing is done on the floor. This will most likely be a high traffic room full of dress up, action games and more. Try polyester, which is both soft and colorful. It’s stain resistant, too, which is never a bad thing.
