Choose the color of the rug that suits your decoration

Having trouble choosing a rug color? You’re not alone. Choosing the right color rug can be incredibly difficult, especially given that it’s also a significant financial investment that will likely stick around in your home for years to come. A beautifully patterned rug can make or break a room’s decor. Different spaces need different rug styles and colors. Here are a few tips to help you choose the best rug for your space.


How would you like the room to feel?

An area rug, creates the overall mood in a room. You may want a bedroom to feel calm, while a recreational space may require more energy and vibrancy. Light colors can make a small space appear bigger. To make a room feel spacious, consider pastel shades, white, or a combination of pale and bright colors. Cool colors like blue, green, and purple create a calming atmosphere. Bright, vibrant colors create a sense of energy. Oranges, reds, or vibrant lime green can add energy to your space. Deep colors make a room feel more intimate. For a cozy family room, try rugs with colors like chocolate or navy.


Make Sure The Rug Matches The Rest Of The Room

If the wall colors and/or furniture of the room is already done, it can be challenging to choose a rug that matches. In fact, many interior designers advise clients to “start with the rug” and choose a color scheme from there. If your room has an established color scheme with a combination of bold shades, choose a rug that incorporates the same colors. Soft shades of gray and muted tans are the perfect counterpart to brightly colored walls. If your space has warm walls like yellow or orange, consider a muted rug to ensure your visitors’ eyes are drawn to the right place. Patterned rugs are great in rooms with otherwise solid decor.


Other Things To Keep In Mind

When choosing a carpet color, matching the mood and color alone is not enough. Here are a few more tips to keep in mind. Darker colors are better for covering wood stains. If your home has dark wood flooring, a similarly dark colored rug may be a wise investment. If you want your area rug to be the main focus of the room, choose a brighter color rug to go with softer, muted walls and furniture.


Caring For Your Area Rug

No matter what rug you choose, it will need professional care and cleaning. Different rug materials necessitate different cleaning methods. For example, a high-quality persian rug should be hand washed and dried in a multi-step process.
