Simple Yet Lively Decorating Tips for Area Rugs

Posted by Natural Area Rugs on Jun 29th 2012

There are so many great ways to spice up the interior of any room in your home with area rugs. The trick to doing this properly is not nearly as difficult as you may think that it is. All that´s necessary is keeping your eyes peeled for the room´s tonality, color patterns, and the overall contrast of the interior. These simple tips should help you avoid any troubles when trying to place an area rug in your home for optimal decoration. Matching the Tone of the Room Take a note of the room's color patterns and schemes. There are a variety of different area rugs and patterns that can easily bring your room to life. Look for an abundance of sharp colors, like deep reds, or mahogany woods, and of course, neutral tones like grays and light browns and tans. Then make your choice of area rug patterns that will best compliment those tones. For example, a room that exhibits many hues of red may look best with a neutral contrasting sisal area rug that has a non-conflicting brown border. Whereas a room that has many different neutral tones, like browns and tans, may be livened up by placing a red shag area rug. Choosing the Right Materials Materials are everything when decorating your home with area rugs. For rooms that are more rustic, try countryside patterns with good durability.. For plush rooms that have a warm and soft feeling, a shag rug will work magnificently. And for those high-traffic rooms, a sisal or jute rug, or even a moutaingrass or seagrass rug will do the trick nicely. Proper Placement Makes the Eyes Widen Make sure that your area rug is placed in proper alignment with the furniture and artwork in the room. If placed underneath a coffer table, try to center the table on the middle of the rug. For rugs placed at an angle, make sure that the corners are not bent against other furniture. And for rugs that are placed on stone, tile and or wood, assure that they look spatial in their placement in the room.
