Looking to spruce up a room? Perhaps add a touch of whimsy? Few things can transform a room as quickly and with as much impact as an area rug. Simply adding a rug to a room can tie a room together or reinvent it in just seconds. So many choices are available today that anyone can find a choice that fits his or her personality, home, and budget.
Many people choose neutral wall colors paired with solid colored furniture, yet still desire to have more personality in their rooms. The wide variety of prints, patterns, and colors available in area rugs is the perfect solution to make a room uniquely yours. A whimsical rug will immediately become the focal point to any room.
Take note the next time you browse through your favorite decorating magazines or websites. More often than not, a dynamic rug will be found as a central part of the room. Decorators know the secret that rugs are a powerful tool in pulling a room together and creating unique, personal space.
A fun rug can make over any room in your home, but before you make your purchase, think about what type of use your rug will see. Will it be in a high-traffic area? Do you have kids that may (or more realistically, will) spill on the rug? Is a pet shedding hair around the home? Consider the function that the rug will play as you choose the right chose for your home.
Another factor to consider as you purchase your area rug is your personal taste. You may have the overarching goal of adding a whimsical touch to a space, but before making a final decision browse through multiple options to determine what most appeals to your overall style. For example, if you tend to lean towards a modern look, it may be wise to choose a rug with a modern vibe. Maybe you're more of a traditionalist? Look for something classic with an unexpected twist.
Finally, as you look to add an area rug to your home, think about your finance. Rugs are available at a variety of price points. As you consider your needs and preferences, evaluate what will meet your budgetary needs. Look for quality materials and craftsmanship as you consider what you would like to invest in your new rug and you'll be happy for years to come.
