When it comes to interior design, you won’t easily find a person who would choose tile or carpet over hard wood floor. Wood floors are beautiful and bring so much character into a home, plus they wear well and are easy to clean. But sometimes, there is concern over dark wood flooring. Is it too heavy for the space? Will it make things look too dark? If you’re considering a re-staining job just because you have dark hard wood, you will be glad to know that there is an easy fix for your quandary. A rug! Rugs will enhance the beauty of your hard wood floor while adding some flair to the rest of your room’s decor.
The lines will add depth, the size will add pizazz and the width will add length to any room of any size … causing the space to look bigger. By sitting the rug directly under the coffee table, chair or even if it covers a huge chunk of the area; the stripes will act as a highlighter for any point of the room. It’s an immediate way to create a focal point.
In addition, a white rug can potentially make a room appear larger, this creating a sense of space. And because white is a neutral color, you can complement the rug with a variety of other colors. When black and white are put together, the result is a timeless look. The combinations and design possibilities, in this case, are very numerous. The crisp contrasts of color can be expressed in the form of classical stripes, modern geometric design as well as a variety of other strategies.
Sometimes simplicity works best in a space. If you want more attention on the wood than the rug, go for a rug with a whip stitch edge like this one. A light color will make the dark floor stand out while the stitch gives it a bit of fun.
