All Through The House: Why Rugs Can Be A Decorator's Delight

Posted on

When it comes to decorating your home, you probably spend a considerable amount of time focusing on choosing the right color for your walls, buying new furniture, or picking out just the right curtains to match the room décor.

It's easy to overlook the importance of the floor when there are so many other things to think about. However, one of the easiest ways to make a big impact in a room is to use rugs.

Whether you prefer a bright colored rug or a beautiful oriental rug, you will not be disappointed in the wide selection of rugs available to purchase for your home.

Rugs in the kitchen

The modern kitchen decorating theme is known for its simplistic look. However, it can appear a little cold and bleak at times. An oriental rug will blend in well with the modern theme and can add just the right amount of detail to a simple kitchen to make it feel more inviting.

A traditional or country kitchen, already known for its cozy elements, can also benefit from the addition of a rug. Choosing a rug with a design that contains a few colors used in the kitchen décor is an attention grabber and will add a welcoming touch.

Rugs in the living room and family room

A rug can be the focal point of a living room or family room. Rugs work exceptionally well in open living spaces where you have a large amount of floor space and high ceilings.

The natural beauty of laminate, hardwood, and tile flooring can be enhanced by the addition of a well-designed rug. Place the rug in the center of the room and arrange the furnishings around the perimeter, but leave about a one-foot gap between the furniture and the rug to avoid a cluttered look.

Again, focus on the colors you want to enhance in the room and select a rug that will draw out the colors in the furnishings and décor.

Rugs in the bedrooms

When it comes to children's bedrooms, rugs are a wise choice. They are typically easier to clean than wall-to-wall carpet and still provide a comfortable place for children to play.

A brightly colored rug will delight young children and make the room look cheery and happy. Teens will be thrilled by rugs in geometric designs.

In the master bedroom, a rug can add a romantic touch to the room. Choose a floral or vintage design for the greatest romantic appeal. This works especially well with white or beige drapes and bed linens. Add a few candles to make your romantic haven complete.

Rugs in the bathroom

Bathroom rugs don't have to be boring pieces of fluff placed beside the tub or shower or in front of the commode. Choose a rug that will make an impact on the room.

Even a small rug can have a huge impact on the appearance of a bathroom when used to contrast or highlight the other colors in the room. Think beyond the typical bath rugs and choose a design that will complement your bathroom style.

When it comes to decorating, rugs can be the finishing touch that makes the biggest impact in your decorating theme. Regardless of your color palette or choice of décor in a room, there's a rug that will be a perfect match for every room in your home.
