If you want to transform a lackluster room into one brimming with visual excitement, lay down an area rug. Unlike the long-term investment of wall-to-wall carpet, area rugs can be bought with a more adventurous approach and moved about the house as whim dictates. Area rugs are perfect for enhancing carpeted floors, particularly when they are set in neutral tones. Use small area rugs to define conversational islands in a sea of carpet or wood flooring, or use very large area rugs to extend a room’s perimeter. Choices are myriad and include rustic braided, hooked and rag rugs; Middle Eastern kelim, bokhara and Turkish rugs; Indian dhurries; Chinese and Persian rugs; and shaggy Greek fl o-takis.

Of course, finding just the right area rugs means you need to go somewhere with a diverse selection. That’s why you should check out the area rugs at LIBERTY CARPET.
