Some of the best ways to decorate with area rugs involve you focusing more on what is surround it than the actual rug itself. They can breathe new life into a room and tie the entire thing together if you use the colorings in it appropriately. They’ll add a cozy feeling to any family room and keep you feeling as though all of your spaces are loosely structured in the best way and help a room come together and feel like a true home. To begin it’s important to consider what type of room you’re adding your rug to and what the context of your home is. Do you have a large family? Any pets? Do you host a lot of family parties? If this is true then you’ll want to consider a rug that is easily washable as well as one that has a pattern on it. This will hide stains and the natural wear and tear it will endure, making it more cost effective for you. Some of the most important details are the coloring of the rug and the shape of it. If you have an open concept home you can use them to define your spaces separately and typically rectangular and any angularly shapes work best for this. However, if you’re looking to warm up a room, more round designs tend to be what works. Outside of the shape, you can use the colors of your room to help you choose what accent colors you want present in your area rug. This can tie the whole room together with one purchase and save you loads of time and money because it will keep you less tempted to just over haul the entire room and repaint the walls as well. As much fun as redecorating is, it can be a pricey game, so try using an area rug as your “redecoration” and see if that helps to ease your mind and bring the room together. Regardless of which style or color you choose, keep in mind that the best part about area rugs is the flexibility you have to change them!
