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.
Are you focused more on comfort than looks? Lucky for you, this chunky woven rug will provide both to your space. Whether under the bed or by the couch, choose a light color and you’ll have a winner. Speaking of light colors, the main reason for a light rug on a dark floor is to provide a space in the deep brown. But if you find a rug like this with a light border, who cares what else goes on in the middle.
Bold patterns with neutral color: When most of think of bold we think bright colors, bold patterns, and over the top graphics. Bold can actually use neutral colors, but have very large and powerful images to make it become the focal point of the room. Rooms that already have bold wall or furniture colors such as red, burgundy, or even turquoise or royal blue tend to have heavy saturation in them. The way to unite the floor with the bold walls is by using bold patterned neutral area rugs.
Even though the black and white combination is a classical, it’s not the only existing one. Sometimes a black and white accent piece would be too strong for a certain décor. In this case, for example, the cowhide features white and brown accents which match with the beautiful wooden floors and thus the visual impact is less striking.
