How to Select a Right Rug


Have you ever thought why choosing a rug is so important? Because selecting a suitable rug makes you feel the beauty of your room is completed. Rugs can transform look of your home more than any other improvement. It can also help warm up or soften hard surfaces like wood and tile flooring. There are many factors that should be considered in choosing a rug. One of these factors is color and pattern of a rug.

Best Color for your room

Color is the obvious starting point. It might not be wrong if we say it has the greatest impact on the appearance of your home. For choosing the best color for your decor first collect photos of rooms you like the most and look at the colors in the photos. Keep in mind that just because you like a color doesn’t mean it’s a good ideal for your project. There are a lot of question that you have to ask yourself. Do you want your home to be a bright and cheery or dark and cozy? Do you have large room with a lot of open space or a small one?

Rugs with dark colors make space appear smaller and light colors do the opposite, so if your room is small or you would like to achieve a sense of a more open space in your room it’s better to try using a light-colored rug. It can help the area feel bigger.

 

Although, light-colored carpets make your home a soothing place. it should be considered that dark carpets can give a classic look to your décor.

What is important in designing your home is matching your carpet with other elements in the room such as curtain or even the pillows on the living room sofa and use the opposite colors correctly but you should notice that it’s not necessary to match colors exactly?

 

 

As you can see in the second picture the dark color of carpet matches with the shades of wall and vase and its White color matches with the sofa.  If you don’t have these differences in color scheme of your interior design your home will become monotonous and boring.

You might like to have a home with happier colors. If you live in warm and sunny climes bright colors work well in your home.

 

 

In this room, the splashes of blue in the pictures on the wall are echoed in the rug. This blue carpet makes the room happier.
Warm color like red, orange and yellow are stimulating and soothing. Just look at the picture below, the flaring color of the rugs brings a sense of vitality and glamour in your room. Warm colors therefore work really well in the living room, dining room and kitchen.

  

Low Pile vs High Pile

Although using flat-woven or high-pile rug depends on your taste, there are some tips that need to be considered. Many people like the softness of a high-pile carpet underfoot. The soft rug feels great under the bare foot. This type of rugs is difficult to keep clean or wash. If you are used to wearing shoes in the house flat woven rug will be better for your room because not only they are so easier to care for, as they can be more easily vacuumed they also will last a bit longer than high pile rugs. Besides, Low pile rugs work well with modern furnishings.
