When decorating your home, you may think of putting a rug in a room last. This last added piece comes with a smaller budget and not much thought to it because you’ve already got the rest of the room finished. Goodwyn Building understands that decorating takes time and money but rugs can be an important asset to a room when done right. How do you decorate with a rug though?

Consider Color

First, you want the rug to be the first thing that you buy for your room. Think about the main color you want the room to have and show off. In addition to this think about what will be going on in that room. Will there be kids or pets that will be playing in it? If that is the case then you want to make sure you get the right type of material for the occasion. Some materials will be more durable than others. Research for which type of rug will be best suited for your family is key. There are so many different types of fabrics.

How Big?

Once you’ve decided on the color and type of rug you want, you need to think about the size. Size is important when it comes to picking out your rug. You need to consider what kind of furniture layout you’re planning. Most times you’re going to want the rug to be big enough to hold your room. This means that you want your furniture pieces to be able to fit on it. For example, say you have the two front legs of your couch on it, as well as an ottoman, and a chair that is on the other side of the room, then it must be big enough to hold the room together yet small enough that you have enough of your flooring around it free.

Pattern

In addition to color, you want to think about patterns. Patterns can make a bold statement in your home along with the color you choose. This will add to the look and feel to your home. Think about the mood that you want to have. What speaks to your personality? You’ll be paring this with your couch and so forth so you want to make sure they mesh and complement each other. Most couches are a grounding color so make sure you choose a pattern that flows.

Once you’ve got your rug picked out and are ready to set it in your home, make sure that you buy a non-slip mat to go underneath it. Typically, you’re going to want it to be about 2 inches smaller than the rug you have.

So next time you’re decorating your home, don’t just save a rug for a last-minute thing but instead design your room around a stunning rug. It is captivating and beautiful when you do. There are many other variables to consider but these are some of the main ones. We want you to love your home and the way it looks. Goodwyn Building has been building and designing homes since 1989.
