Custom Area Rugs for Homes & Businesses in Naperville, IL & Western Suburbs of Chicago
When decorating your home or office in Naperville, IL, or another Western Chicago suburb, it can be easy to overlook the flooring. But, custom area rugs can serve as the foundation of your design scheme, visually integrating the various décor elements and revitalizing an entire room by adding the right touch of coziness, comfort, and style.
If all of this sounds great but you aren’t sure where to begin, award-winning interior designer Susan Gailani and her team at Gailani Designs Inc. can help. With decades of experience and a true passion for textiles, Susan will expertly guide you through your project, ultimately creating original area rugs based on your own unique ideas.
How to Design With Area Rugs
When designing with area rugs, it is important to keep several key points in mind. Susan will help you:
- Visualize the total look you want – Is it clean and monochromatic, bursting with vibrant colors and textures, or something in between? Light-colored area rugs can make a room appear more spacious, while deeper colors can lend a touch of coziness.
- Fit the rug to the purpose of the room – Think about the room’s use and traffic patterns. You’ll want to choose a fabric that will perform well, with the right combination of density and fiber. In general, the denser the pile (with closer tufts or stitches), the better the rug will wear. We can provide nylons, sisals, wools, and other fabrics to suit your needs and tastes.
- Consider the furniture – If you start with furniture, you can design area rugs that coordinate with the color scheme of your furnishings. To add interest, you might include fabric bindings, tapestry inserts, or combined cut and looped piles.
- Measure the room and the area you want to cover – One large area rug can cover the majority of a room, while scatter rugs can be ideal for adding a splash of color and texture to a smaller space, such as a bedside, hearth, or area in front of a sink. Also, don’t get “boxed in” by the idea of a rectangular area rug. Custom area rugs are available in all shapes and sizes, and a square, octagonal or circular area rug can add a special flair.
