THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Have you already looked at your furnishings? Normally people don’t pay too much attention to accessories and usually the most neglected pieces of decoration are area rugs. Actually, for some of us it is very hard to choose and place our area rugs.
RALATED HISTORY: 5 PLACES FOR WOOL RUGS: HOW TO CHOOSE?
So, let’s learn some tips on how to arrange your colorful (or not) contemporary or modern rugs. Find below some of the main rules for choosing and placing your rugs.
1. Choosing a rug that’s too small
The rug defines the conversation area, and it should be large enough so at least the front legs of the furniture are on it.
2. Avoiding animal inspired prints
Say “no” the natural leather or animal skin, but you can have fun with synthetic patterns. Try them.
3. Leaving your wall-to-wall carpeting bare
Layering an area rug over carpet is fun, and pulls together your room with the boundaries it needs.
4. Choosing your rug last
If you’re decorating your room from scratch, choose the rug FIRST. It’s the big, impactful piece that ties a room together.
5. Being afraid of pattern
Some contrast (read: a cute print) is necessary to create a happy space.
6. Missing out on a discount
If you’re looking for a great price on unique, vintage rug, like a Persian one or Turkish kilim, try eBay. They have a huge selection and always run sales.
7. Not using neutral
Do not be afraid of having neutrals at home. Life is not worth it if you are constantly thinking about cleaning issues.
I hope these tips can be useful for you. We can really be inspired to change things and to really take pleasure out of our vision. Contemporary rugs are energetic and really give life to a living room spot.
