If you’re looking to update a room without a complete redesign, a rug redesign can change the look of a room. Unlike other major furnishing choices, a rug is often an afterthought when designing a room. But not only can a rug be more affordable than outfitting a room with a completely new ensemble of furniture, it can completely set the tone of a room. And sometimes it’s good to start from the ground up, meaning what’s right beneath our feet! Rugs no longer have to be neutral or have traditional fussy patterns. Now you can incorporate so many different colors and textures, like with Wish Designs’ beautiful and durable ultra suede shag rugs. Read more about how practical they are to take care of here (did we mention they’re 100% machine washable?).
Here are tips to keep in mind when choosing your next rug redesign statement piece:
Instead of painting walls to add color, which always ends up taking more time and money than you think, choose a boldly hued rug. You can choose colors that pick up accents in your room, or introduce new contemporary shades. Also, to add contrast, add a light rug to dark floors, or a dark rug to light floors.
Alter Your Floor Type
Whether the color of your floors contrasts with your current décor, or if they’re worn out, a room-sized rug in a neutral hue is a quick and affordable way to alter your flooring type.
Think you can’t put a rug on top of a carpet or even another room-size rug? Think again! Layering rugs can add a cozy look with a tasteful contrast of color and texture.
Installing a wall-to-wall area rug can make space feel bigger by providing continuity. Changing floor surfaces provide visual stops and starts for the eye, so in contrast, having a carpet extend from wall to wall means there is nothing to stop the eye. This gives the impression that space is larger than it is.
The key to using an area rug to help your room look bigger is to use the correct rug size. A common decorating mistake people make is selecting an area rug or carpet that’s too small, making the room look choppy and disjointed, and therefore makes it look smaller.
