New to our Barry Carpet showroom are a selection of beautiful and classic area rugs from some of the flooring industry’s top designers. Read on to learn the best ways to charm your home or office with a gorgeous area rug.

According to Floor Covering Weekly, area rugs are best used as an accent that adds a personalized flair to your space. From a design perspective, some home decor professionals select the area rug for the room even before wall colors, furniture and home decor items. An area rug can make or break a room. The right area rug can anchor and define separate spaces in a studio layout and add liveliness to a space.

In 2018, the rug trends are colorful, global-inspired prints and recycled materials. At Barry Carpet, we have a plethora of incredible eco-friendly carpets that can be customized to fit into any room you desire.

While an area rug is a common addition to add on top of hard surface floor such as hardwood or LVT, it can even be laid over broadloom carpet. In addition to the stylish ambiance they create, area rugs offer warmth, comfort and noise reduction.

Interior Designer’s Tips to Pick the Perfect Area Rug

We asked some of LA’s top interior designers what their secrets are to pick the perfect area rug and this is what they said:

Erin Morris from of Homegirl Collection shared her wise words: “Area rugs are like art and can make or break a room. A few things I often tell people when choosing a rug is don’t go too small - I’d rather see no area rug in a room than one that is too small for the space. Also, choose something that is going to hold up in your home environment... choose something you love and go a little crazy if your space allows it. An area rug can always be switched up, so have fun.”

Christine Thompson & Andrea Putnam from JAC Interiors revealed: “We love to customize a rug for a bespoke look, to make sure we get the perfect size. We will often pick a wall to wall carpet and then cut it to the exact size we want, so it’s perfect every time!”

At Barry Carpet of West Los Angeles, we carry standard size rugs and can create custom size rugs. With a wide selection of designs and brands to choose from, you are sure to find a rug at Barry Carpet that will enhance and add charm to any decor and ambiance.
