An area rug is the perfect finishing touch on any floor. Area rugs add style, color, comfort, and tie your room together. 

Area Rugs in Knoxville, TN

Nothing brightens a space or adds a wonderful rich texture to a room like a quality area rug. Area rugs are ideal for bringing a wealth of warmth and texture to your decor. Area rugs are comfortable under foot, and even decrease the noise in a space. They are available in a vast variety of colors, shapes, designs, material, texture and price range. Area rugs are highly decorative and easy to relocate. An area rug is very versatile: it can be the focal point of a room, create a cozy conversation area, provide a splash of color, or be a unifying element that ties colors together. Area rugs can quickly and easily give rooms character.

In terms of structure and design, an area rug can really bring a room together by allowing color schemes and interior style to be accentuated. This is performed by repeating those aspects within its design. Also, area rugs can help define a room’s purpose. Specific areas can be divided up and identified by placing a rug in the center of that space.

These rugs look equally good on hardwood or on carpet provided the color and patterns of the two do not clash. The comfort, acoustic benefits and space definition that area rugs provide are needed more than ever with hard floor coverings. Henson's Greater Tennessee Flooring has a fantastic selection of area rugs in stock. Our design experts can assist you in deciding which of these incredible rugs is ideal for your decorating dreams.

How to shop for an Area Rug

It goes without saying that we love area rugs at Henson's Greater Tennessee Flooring. Our feeling, of course, is that decorating your home should start from the ground up with an area rug. Proper rug choice can bring fresh excitement to your room and can impart comfort and warmth as well as tie together various elements of your architecture, furnishings and accessories. Quality rugs are available in nearly every price range and there are so many shapes, colors, materials and designs available to suit any and all design preferences.

First, visualize the “look” that you want to achieve. For example, your look could be an uncluttered and single-tone room or even one that is rich with color and various textures. Next, evaluate how the room is to be used. For instance, consider using a durable and/or patterned rug for high-traffic areas such as hallways and foyers.

If you are starting with a bare room, first choose a rug and then compliment the rug with paint colors or wallpaper selections. If you plan to incorporate a favorite painting or piece of furniture, pick up key colors from those pieces. There are few “rules” in interior design, but some useful generalizations follow. Light colored rugs tend to make a room look more spacious and deeper colors lend a look of coziness. A rug with a bold overall pattern can be the focal point of a room, with a sofa and chair in solid or subdued patterns. Consider using round, oval, octagonal or other shapes for a lively look.
