Do this, not that: Area rugs

Area rugsAn area rug has the potential to make or break a room’s aesthetic appeal. Used to define a space and unify the furnishings around it, an area rug helps a room feel complete and contributes to the overall flow of a room’s feng shui. Learn about the best ways to incorporate an area rug into your home the right way!

Do consider size
When choosing an area rug, people tend to choose one that it too small for their space. The size of an area rug is important because it conveys the approximate size of the room. The size you need depends on how you wish to place it. If you want to make a room appear spacious, you should choose a large rug that covers the entire area of the room. If you want to create a multipurpose room, consider dividing the room with multiple rugs.

Do mix and match
Mixing patterns and colors can be a fun way to spice up the visual appeal of any room. When mixing patterns, be sure to pick an area rug with a pattern that is larger or smaller than the other patterns around it. You can ensure your room stays visually appealing by making one of your patterned elements striped.

Don’t forget about custom options
If you can’t find an area rug that fits your space, consider having an area rug custom made. Many flooring companies now have the ability to resize an area rug to meet your specific dimensions, so that no area rug is out of reach!

Do consider seating
Make sure you have seating nailed down before you begin to hunt for an area rug. While there are an infinite number of rugs to choose from, there are only a handful of couches that will fit your style and budget. Once you have decided on furniture you can focus on jazzing up the room with a patterned rug or colorful curtains.
