When choosing rugs for your home you could go one of two ways: make a statement or make it blend. Personally, I think a mix of the two options throughout your home is the way to g. Pops of color and pattern in your rugs is fun, but make sure that some rugs are more subdued to keep your home looking cohesive. In the right place, I love a rug that’s colorful, but sophisticated at the same time. I chose to go with this rug for our living room and paired it with neutral furniture to keep our room feeling balanced and calming. If you’re debating going for the statement rug, here are a few to consider:
Tips For Buying Rugs
When selecting the appropriate size rug for your living room, make sure that at least the front legs of all furniture are on the rug. Entire funiture pieces can be on it as well, just make sure you’re not purchasing a rug that’s too small. You’re not going to get the high-end look you’re after. When in doubt, size up.
In bedrooms, you want the rug to be underneath at least the bottom half of your bed. It’s ideal to have the rug come all the way up to your nightstands so you get that cozy feeling under your feet when getting out of bed! And again, when in doubt, size up.
Buy a rug pad! Whenever you’re purchasing a rug that will be located on a hard flooring surface, add a rug pad to your cart as well. Rug pads help protect your flooring and also prevent the rug from sliding around. In some cases, they can also make your rug more comfortable!
