Decorating a space is quite the undertaking because these spaces are where you spend a major part of your day, and you want to come home to or work in a place that is inviting and decorated in a way that is appealing to all your senses. So while decorating a space, never discount the importance of rugs and carpets. Not only can they tie a whole space together but also, accentuate and amplify the grandeur of your space. These are a couple of tips you must pay heed to while decorating using carpets and area rugs.
1)Divide and conquer: If you are using more than two rugs to do up your space, make sure they are of different sizes. The problem with them being the same is that they will divide the room into half, instead to tying it together. Unless the rugs are floor to floor, use rugs of different sizes to unite a room.
2)Peace and Harmony: While using 2 rugs, make sure the design and style complement and set off of each other. Having contrasting designs can throw off the entire aesthetic of the room and you will end up with something that looks gaudy and unappealing. Instead, use 2 rugs that accent and highlight one another.
3)Turning up or Toning Down: Both your carpets cannot be the central focus, as you might end up with two pieces of art, warring with each other. Use one rug to turn up certain aspects of a room and use one to tone down others.
4)Be a schemer: Pick a color scheme and stick to it. While choosing your rugs, make sure one complements the color scheme and the other accentuates the other’s colors. Keep in mind that your pillows, curtains and accessories amplify this color scheme, so make sure you select them prudently.
5)Don’t Floor them: Carpets and rugs are not just for your floors. You can also have your walls adorn them. Choose one that goes on the wall and a complementing counter-part goes on the floor. This will give your space a royal and regal look, without looking ancient and bucolic.
