The key to getting a custom look from off-the-shelf area rugs is to combine several together giving the appearance of a large custom-sized version. While this project is easy to do success depends on selecting the right materials - not just any area rug will work. Solids are easy to use; depending on the rug’s material however seams may appear prominent and detract from the intended illusion of one large solid piece. Textural rugs such as shag are often the best choice since the loose fibers of the shag hide the seams between each rug. Rugs with large-scale patterns make the most visual impact especially since introducing a pattern into a cramped space can take focus off the lack of square footage and attract it to the bold pattern.
When you put a contemporary twist on a Persian or Oriental rug you get a transitional rug. These rugs seamlessly blend traditional styles with modern touches; as a result they are wonderfully versatile and easy to use in many different situations. If you find yourself on the fence about contemporary or more traditional styles you should definitely look into transitional rugs. Chances are you’ll be able to find a style that is the missing link that you were after all along.
