Custom Sized Area Carpets or Rugs for the today’s Larger Rooms

Wood floors are the flooring of choice for today’s larger homes and open town homes as they are easy to keep clean, look great for years and define a classic, handsome character for the home.  Custom sized area carpets scaled to fit the rooms provide protection, acoustical softness, warmth and comfort underfoot and enhance the spaces that flow together dramatically.  Matching area rugs or carpets used throughout today’s open floor plans tie the spaces together allowing the eye to flow comfortably from area to area, and when selected to complement existing furnishings enhance the overall ambiance of the home.  At the start of any room/home design we begin with the floor coverings first as selections are limited and the floor

covering encompasses the entire space.  Beginning with carpet selections first allows for easier coordination of fabrics, paints and finishes.  One can always fall in love with the fabric of their dreams and use the fabric as the basis of which carpet style would coordinate best with the fabric.

Custom area carpets are sized perfectly for each space and provide more design options.  There are many styles, patterns, color and design options to choose from as you now open up this important design decision to all broadloom carpet selections.  Traditional, transitional or modern selections are available when you choose to design custom area carpets, including very durable commercial carpet options.  Solid color plush, textured or patterned broadloom carpets make beautiful area rugs when bordered or edge bound with or without fringe detailing for modern designs.  Traditional and transitional patterned broadloom selections add design character as well as hide dirt better than solid colors.  They may be used on their own or bordered with solid colors and/or fabric insets providing a finished look.  In the photos you will see we generally use a small inside piping border with the main accent color and then a neutral solid color outside border to transition nicely with the wood floors.  Many manufacturers have broadloom selections available with coordinating borders for use to create carpets sized to your exact dimensions and provide the look of a hand-made Persian, Oriental or English traditional designs.

Custom carpets are sized to the inch fitting the room perfectly providing balance and harmony of the spaces in a way no other design material can.  Enhancements include cut off corners, asymmetrical shapes, matching patterned or coordinating solid color borders.  Custom staircase runners and matching Foyer area carpets with added fringe detail add a distinct, rich coordinated look to complement any color and design scheme.

Whether designing a new home or renovating your home the most important design decision begins with the floorcoverings.  Looking for something unique to fit your design sense and personality we can provide many options not available on the retail market including both residential and commercial carpets selections which work well with pets.  We have designed carpets as large as 14′-6″ x 15′-6″ for a Library with matching staircase runners and 18′-6″ x 11′-6″ for a luxury townhome Family Room.  Beginning the design process for larger rooms in today’s homes is easily accomplished with custom carpets designed to fit the spaces and furniture arrangements that enhance your existing furnishings allowing you to develop color concepts and pizazz with the rest of the furnishings and accessories.

Elegant Home Interior Design where to begin? Coordinating Area Carpets for Wood Floors

Homeowners today choose the richness and warmth of the natural wood floors throughout the main living areas defining a classic, handsome continuous character for the home.  Realtors know homes with wood floors sell faster and if a property is not selling recommend upgrading with hardwood flooring.  Once living with all wood floors you will quickly determine the need to cover the floors for protection, acoustically soften the rooms and provide warmth and comfort underfoot.  Matching area rugs or carpets used throughout the home or townhome’s open floor plan tie the spaces together beautifully allowing the eye to flow comfortably from area to area, and when selected to complement existing furnishings they enhance the overall ambiance of the home.

Where to begin your design scheme or color palette for your new home?  Upon walking into a room your eyes are 1st drawn to the windows and 2nd to the floors.  Windows for their light filtering character and the floors keep the space flowing and the eyes wandering.  The more floor you see the larger the room or home will feel.  When beginning a home design we look at the floor coverings as one of our first inspirations.  Start your color concept and palette with the product that has the least amount of style and design selections to choose from.  Drapery and upholstery fabrics are endless, carpet selections are limited.  As a significant amount of money will be invested in your floor covering decisions it is wisest to select classic, timeless designs and patterns.

The simplest solution is ready-made matching area carpets if you can find a pattern and design style you love and work with standard sizes.  Custom area carpets designed to fit each room, space and hallway coordinate the main living areas of larger residences and provide definition for the Living, Dining and Foyer Areas of townhomes.  Starting with a beautiful patterned field carpet which will hide dirt and set the premise for a transitional, traditional or modern design concept we either work with a coordinating patterned border or pair two solid color accent borders around the field carpet for a professional finished look.

We will explore both  options: A) ready-mades and B) custom carpet options in later posts.  Like what you see – send us a picture(s) and room dimensions and we will provide samples and solutions that enhance your existing furnishings.  Call 703-425-9050 or email directly to pgolden@goldeninteriors.com.
