Must-Know Rules for Decorating With Area Rugs

June 24, 2015 2:30 pm

Whether you want to preserve the look of hardwood floors or add more color to your space, incorporating area rugs into your decor is a great way to create a put-together look in any room in your home. Here are a few must-know tips for decorating with area rugs.

  • Choose the right size. Be sure to measure your entire room before purchasing a rug, even though the rug will only fill part of the space. As a guide, try to choose one that will sit just underneath the front of your furniture.
  • Choose the rug first. Unless you already own the rest of your furniture, it’s smart to choose the rug first, since it likely has the boldest color and pattern.
  • Choose something natural. If you’re stuck and just can’t seem to find a rug that works, opt for something made from natural jute or hemp that goes with anything.
  • Add a rug pad. If you have hardwood floors, keep your rug from slipping and sliding by adding a high quality rug pad underneath.
  • Don’t be afraid of color. If the rest of your furniture is fairly simple, you can get away with a bright color and a big, bold pattern in the rug. Just be sure that one color ties the room together.
