Using Decorative Rugs
19 Jan, 2015

Decorative rug helps to add on to beautify an ordinary home. Using rug as decorative is definitely a good help to turn the house into a more interesting looking one. When choosing a suitable rug for your home, look out for the material and pattern of the rug before making your choice. Roughly think through the size you need, colour you want, material you prefer and the design you like.

 

For the ideal choice, we recommend that you choose a rug that is able to integrate with the interior design of you house. The good thing about rugs is that you can use it indoor or outdoor as you prefer. Each time you decide to get a decorative rug, first determine the look you want for your room. If you want the rug to be the main focus of the room, opt for bright and bold contrasting colours. This will definitely bring attention to the rug.

A rug can also be used to bring out the furniture that you want to enhance.  Alternatively you can also use a rug in order to enhance a room theme. This can be done by getting a rug that is of the same colour as the more dominant colour of the room. You can also use contrast by selecting a rug with colour that is contrasting to the dominant colour of the room. Note that a rug with warm and neutral colour adds a sense of warmth and texture to the room.

After you decide on the effect you want for the rug, get the measurements of the room so that you can get a correct size of the rug. Determining the size of the rug only requires just a few measurements. Some rooms may require the rug to cover the whole area of the floor others such as when defining a group of furniture need only cover a portion of the room but has to be big enough in order to make an impact.

When getting a rug for heavy furniture such as a coach, make sure the rug is bigger than the coach and fits nicely under the feet of the couch. Wool is often a good material for decorating with rugs. Besides giving a nice feel underfoot, wool is very durable and resistant to dust mites. For a more warm option, cotton rugs can be used as they are quite good and sometimes can also keep the room warm.

Whatever choice of rug that you make, taking into consideration the size of the room the material as well as the colour and pattern of the rug in such a way for them to blend with the design and furniture of the room should provide you with great visual effect and very nice rooms.
