Cabin floors are very often wood, because this lends to the natural and charming look and feel of lodges and cabins. But that wood can often become cold, and can also be a boring design element. But rustic area rugs take care of that. By throwing a rug down you can instantly change and completely revamp your entire cabin’s décor, and you can bring some of the warmth back to the log cabin. There are many different cabin area rugs out there; but when it comes to buying area rugs, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First, think about what design would look good on a cabin area rug in your lodge. If you have a country cabin, think about rustic area rugs that depict animals, wildlife, cute patterns, or floral prints. If you have a hunting cabin, you might be more interested in area rugs that show deer, moose, or other game that you enjoy chasing. The chances are that you already have many of these design elements set in place so your new cabin area rug will fit right in.
The next thing to think about when buying area rugs is the shape of the rug that you want. Rustic area rugs come in all different shapes but the most common are square, rectangle, circle, and oval. Mostly the one you choose will depend on your personal preference but the shape of a rug can greatly add to the design scheme. Large square rugs can break up a large common area into different sections and can utilize different spaces for different things. Smaller, circle area rugs can be used as accent pieces or to make a particularly high traffic area a little warmer and more comfortable.
One of the things that many people overlook when buying area rugs is the non-slip underlay that should go underneath. Cabin area rugs don’t usually come with their own non-slip backing and on smooth wooden floors, you definitely want to make sure that they don’t slip out from under someone. You can usually find underlays for cabin area rugs in the same place you found the rug itself.
