Do you feel like there is something missing in one of the rooms in your home? Perhaps that missing item is the perfect area rug. Area rugs can bring together all the pieces in a room and make the floor a little more comfy for those barefoot days. But not every rug will work for your space. So here’s some rules to follow when choosing that perfect area rug.
Your rug is meant to be seen, so make sure it stands out by using contrasting colors. For example, if you have a dark floor, go with a lighter color. Also, don’t be afraid to bring in some bold colors and patterns, but make sure it still compliments the other items in your room.
Your rug doesn’t always have to be the focal point in your room. Perhaps you’ve got a beautiful fireplace that you prefer to be the focal point. Go with some simple colors and patterns that doesn’t take the attention away from your focal point, but rather compliments the main focus.
The size of your rug is very important. For example, do you want the rug to fit underneath all of the furniture, or does it need to fit in the space between your furniture? It’s important to take measurements before selecting your rug.
Choosing the right rug takes a lot of consideration. Picking out any rug without thinking it over can create an element in your home that you might not like. If you’re not sure which rug is right for your home, we’d be happy to help.
