How Does An Area Rug Impact Home Design?

If you have a room in your house that seriously lacks excitement then the solution is simple: add a rug to it. A rug is an affordable way to brighten up any room and apart from weekly vacuuming it requires very little maintenance. Rugs are incredibly versatile in the sense that you can do a lot with them in one specific room. It can anchor a room, define it, add warmth, or help accentuate a room’s décor. It all depends on the purpose of the rug.

Here are a few ideas that you can use in order to create the perfect home design with your rugs:

Define areas

Rugs are a great way to separate areas, especially in studio apartments where everything is open plan. Add one to the foyer, the kitchen, the living room and the dining room and hey presto!

Create variety

You can add two different rugs in one room or area in order to create some variety. Just be careful that you don’t add two rugs of the same shape or color – it could split the room in two.

Create hegemony

If you decide to use more than one rug, you want it to look unified and create an overall hegemonic look. Make sure that the rugs complement each other and try not to use too many layers. This could result in an eyesore and make the room look tacky and unpleasant. 

Control the volume

Make sure that your rug does not disturb the rest of the décor in your room. If you have bold wallpaper, you cannot throw a bold rug in the same room. Rather opt for a neutral rug so that it shows off different contrasts. Play around with the volume. Only you can decide how much you want to turn it up or down.

Use it as wall decoration

A rug can easily be hung on a wall in order to create a focal point especially if the wall is painted a neutral color.  It can have a huge impact if you choose a bold color instead of a monotonous or generic standard color. This is where Persian carpets come into play. There are worth a lot more than standard carpets and they will definitely be a feast for the eyes in any room. 

Area rug room design does not have to be tricky at all. You just need to keep your eye open for specific patterns and trends and grab them when the time is right.
