Design your room around the rug: If you are fortunate to have a blank slate in your room, why not start with the rug, and build the decor around it? This is a great way to start with a bold color, such as orange, yellow, or red and then bring in pops of color in home decor accessories around the room. Consider using neutrals on the walls in whites, beiges, grays, or coffee tans to make the dominant color sing throughout your space.
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.
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.
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.
