Area Rug Pulls Room Together

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Area Rugs, Design and Decorating

From size to color to design, this area rug is the perfect selection for this room. If you’re thinking of buying an area rug, some of the decisions that led to this choice may be helpful.

To begin with, the homeowners chose a rug that allowed their lovely wood floors to show. Some area rugs are selected to completely encompass a seating area, with a size that positions all of the furniture on top of the rug. This smaller rug pulls all of the room elements together without getting in the way of the wood floor.

The colors in this room are both warm and cool. This rug has a warm brown border as well as the cream in the design, but the cooler colors in the room such as the grey sofa and loveseat and the black lamp bases are echoed in the rug’s colors. This helps the rug integrate the room through its color palette.

This rug has a central design. With this particular coffee table, the central pattern shows well. If the table’s style covered the base, any central design would disappear. In that case, either a border design or an overall pattern would work better.

Finally, the simple contemporary style works with the design of the furnishings. At its best, a rug should enhance a room’s design, pulling disparate elements together.

Are you ready for an area rug? Well, if you take your time, measure your space and figure out what colors and design will contribute to the room’s style, you should be able to find one that works well for you.
