Making Your Home Welcoming and Comfortable with Area Rugs

These rugs not only protect your toes, but they also take away worries about floors getting scratched or damaged. By placing area rugs strategically, you can make your home more comfortable and carefree to live in. If you have hardwood or tile underneath that you are concerned might become scuffed up by constant treading of family members and pets, an area rug is a perfect solution. Now, those living in the space and people who visit will feel more welcome to walk without worry.

Refresh Your Decor with Designer Pillows

Whether you decide to go bright and bold or soft and muted in your area rug, your throw pillows need to stand out. Remember that your throw pillows don’t have to match each other perfectly, but even if some are solid and others sport geometric patterns, the colors should work together. Experiment with the way different colors and patterns coordinate with your furniture and walls.

Feng Shui With Area Rugs

Area rugs are a staple for most any redecorating project. They are wonderful decorating tools used to warm up a room and make any space more cozy. They serve a functional purpose as well when used to tie a room’s colors together or cover worn linoleum. When it comes to Feng Shui, however, area rugs are often cast aside.

Decorating with Area Rugs (some tips)

Since you will be using the rug as both the main focus point of the room and a guide for additional decorating, it’s important to carefully consider which pieces of furniture and paintings will ultimately compliment the design of the rug. For instance, dark paintings and decorations tend to work well with lighter rugs embellished with simple dark designs. It is also essential to consider the walls. Patterns and wallpaper tend to match best with solid rugs, while plain walls compliment elaborate artwork best.
