One of the most significant reasons to invest in area rugs is the aesthetic appeal they provide. However, because this element tends to be the room’s focus, considering several factors is a must. Setting the tone for the room, the size, color, and style all play roles in the selection process.
At Rug Depot, our team has helped thousands of people in the sometimes overwhelming process of finding the perfect area rug. That said, here are a few starting points to help you on your journey!
Considering the Room
Let’s face it; walking into any room that contains an over or undersized area rug is awkward. An awkwardness that is easily avoided with a few quick measurements! Before deciding what size rug will be best, know the room’s size, location of the rug in proportion to the furniture arrangement, and the overall aesthetic. Another key point to remember is that lighter colors tend to make a room look larger, whereas darker colors will make a room look smaller.
Color Choice is a Big Deal
When picking new items for your room, picking the right color is essential. Colors determine our moods, emotions, actions, and how we relate to people and conduct daily activities. This might sound crazy, we know, but it's true.
The colors around us send psychological signals to our brains and change our overall moods, even if we aren't aware of it. Colors such as yellow, orange, and red add warmth to a room, while light blue, white, and green create a calm and cool environment. You also want to make sure that the color rug you choose for your room fits any pre-existing colors. For example, if you have a yellow-themed room, you might not want to go with a bright purple rug.
