When it comes to redesigning a room sometimes it’s the smallest things that will make the biggest difference. There’s so much to consider when it comes to this that you’ll want to also keep in mind that sometimes, easy is the answer. Here’s a few ways to dress up your living space with stylish area rugs in your home. To begin you’ll want to consider the fact that families and pets will inevitably be part of what you factor in when choosing a rug. If you have a big family and pets, you’ll want to go for carpets that can easily be cleaned and are patterned because this can help hide the wear and tear that the rug with go through. You’ll also need to consider how big or small you’ll want your rug to be. Does a square sharp edged cut match your aesthetic more than a round or oval rug? Do you want it to be neutrally toned or vibrant in coloring? All of these are questions you’ll need to ask yourself before committing to your accent piece. An area rug is also a great way to tie in other pops of color in your room. Choosing one with a lot of colors in it opens up the ability for you to have those same various colors repeated throughout the room in other large scale ways that you may have never thought of before. An area rug can also be the perfect bright complement to neutrally toned walls. This will keep you from wanting to repaint all of the time as well as being a cost-efficient alternative to changing too much in your home. Area rugs are also great for defining spaces. They can be of great use in studio apartments when you want to break up a continuous room, so don’t be afraid to have more than one area rug in your space at the same time. This is a very modern way to define space and keeps you from having to worry about any kind of divider or curtain situation and instead allows you to keep your open concept room alive.
