    Quatrefoil Design In The Home   You might not have known what to call it, but we can bet you’ve seen the quatrefoil design throughout the world of home décor and interior design.   Stylish, sleek, and a happy marriage between traditional and contemporary, quatrefoil seems to work in just about any home design. If you’re looking for visual intrigue that can easily complement other design elements — this two-toned pattern is definitely one to consider.   What exactly is the quatrefoil?   A popular ornamental motif found in architecture and fashion, the quatrefoil consists of four, partially overlapping, symmetrical circles of the same diameter. In Latin, the root of the word means “four leaves.” Although it feels super fresh and contemporary, the quatrefoil has actually been used throughout history, with its peak popularity occurring throughout the Gothic and Renaissance eras.   You can find quatrefoils in famous landmarks such as Notre Dame in Paris, the Reims Cathedral in France and the Doge’s Palace in Venice.   Many feel that quatrefoils symbolize harmony, symmetry and proportion — often conveying a feeling of good luck and fortune.     How do I incorporate quatrefoils into my home?   This timeless architectural pattern can work throughout the home, whether it be in the form of a tiled backsplash, or simply an accent pillow. For a larger design impact, the quatrefoil pattern has proven to be a popular and stylish choice for carpeting.   At Rite Rug Flooring, we have a selection of quatrefoil-patterned carpet that can effortlessly enhance any room. Either wall-to-wall, or simply as an area rug — this time-tested design will be relevant for years to come.

Now that spring-cleaning is over, and summer has finally arrived — it’s time to take that extra step in properly caring for your floors.   These long sunny days and breezy summer nights present the perfect opportunity — and these tips will ensure your floor’s longevity and durability for years to come.  Vacuum and Sweep Regularly  Summer’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle brings a smorgasbord of unwanted dirt and allergens into your home. Because of this, high-traffic areas can always benefit from a daily sweeping. A quick sweep will work wonders in reducing dust particles and more. Of course regular vacuuming is also key — for both carpeting and hard surfaces. This will protect the finish of your flooring, and ensure clean air and happy noses.   Shake Out Area Rugs  Area rugs are frustrating culprits when it comes to collecting unwanted dirt and dust. For rugs that can be carried — bring them outside! This will help loosen dirt particles for more effective vacuuming later on.  Use a Dehumidifier & Air Conditioner High levels of humidity can take a toll on the shine and color of your flooring. However, the use of a dehumidifier and air conditioner can greatly help in decreasing humidity, and increasing air circulation — thus preserving your flooring’s original luster for years to come.  Protect Flooring From The Sun  Just as you protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it’s important to protect your flooring as well. Over-exposure to sunlight can cause discoloration, making your flooring look years older than it actually is. Don’t worry though, you won’t need special floor sunscreen — simple blinds and curtains do the trick!

Rugs have the ability to anchor a space, provide dimension and add that much needed pop of color to an otherwise neutral room. So the question is, what do you do if your space has wall-to-wall carpeting? It seems like this is an ever-present question when it comes to design, but our experts believe that when done right, area rugs placed over carpet have the potential to create a super sophisticated aesthetic. Check out these helpful tips on navigating your design plan...   Play With Texture When layering, consider varying textures. A plush and patterned accent rug atop a more traditional neutral carpet will create an intriguing focal point. The rug can create and define living spaces, all the while adding an interesting flair to the room. Alternatively, a more neutral area rug is a great way to break up an already boldly patterned carpet.   Pop Some Color The right area rug can provide your space with a dose of color or exciting design element, however it’s important to remember that your wall-to-wall carpeting is still there too. Try to select a rug that complements and does not combat your existing carpeting color for a more harmonious design.   Shape It Up Area rugs that vary in shape can work wonders in tricking the eye. Small room, big room, or awkwardly configured — evaluate your space and play with shapes to change the overall ambiance. Round rugs and animal shaped rugs can really change the feel of an otherwise boxy and boring carpeted room.   Keep Things In Place One worry about area rugs is that they will shift or wrinkle atop existing carpeting. Luckily, rug-on-carpet pads are made specifically for this reason. An easy and quick solution, this really is no worry at all.

Create Perfect Custom Area Rugs From Wall-to-Wall Carpet

Flooring alternatives like tile, slate, wood, and laminates are gaining in popularity across the country. All of these types of floors are being used in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, and bedrooms. They often need additional design and functional touches that area rugs can provide. But it’s often very difficult to find just the right rug for your space. Even when you do find a rug that’s the right size, it’s even more difficult to find a rug with the colors, patterns, and feel that you want and need. Here’s a tip that the top interior designers use: get the ideal area rug by having wall-to-wall carpet cut and formed perfectly for your spaces. For example, think of that space beneath your kitchen table. You probably won’t be able to find the right rug to fit there. But you can go to your local carpet store, pick out the perfect carpet color and pattern with terrific stain protection and buy just the amount you need for a circular rug (or any shape that you need for your space). How about your hallways? Finding the right “runners” is next to impossible. You don’t need much carpet, just the right amount. A custom carpet would be perfect. And here’s the other thing that interior designers know: these custom carpets are usually much less expensive than area rugs! The process is simple. A professional carpet cutter will shape the carpet to your exact specifications, add any necessary backing, and sew or prepare the edges so they won’t fray. And your local carpet retailer will be able to recommend someone to cut and prepare your new rugs. It may sound difficult, but it’s actually very simple and relatively inexpensive. Just follow these steps. Measure your spaces and write down the perfect size for your area rug needs. Take pictures of your spaces and be sure to them with you when you shop! Visit your local carpet store. Tell the salesperson what you’re interested in doing. Show them the pictures and work together to pick out the perfect carpet color and pattern. Enjoy your new area rug! And here’s a tip to save even more money: shop for your area rug carpet choices when you’re shopping for full carpeting for other rooms. You’ll be able to combine the square footage to save even more. So get busy! Look around your house for those spaces where you’d love an area rug but couldn't find any to fit the space or your decorating tastes. You now know how to make your own.
