How many rugs do you have in your home?

How many rugs do you have in your home? Most of the rooms in your house can be accentuated with a beautiful rug. These elegant textiles are versatile and come in so many different colors and patterns that your interior design experiments could wind up surprising you! Ever want to have a magazine cover dedicated to you? Well, now, you can find out what that’s like. Please take a look at some of our tips to help get you started!

First Things First: Consider The Size of the Rug

There’s a lot more to good interior design than you might think. Depending on the room you’re trying to decorate, the size of the rugs you use will have a definite impact. For example, including two extra feet on either side of the dining table rug is important. That way, you can move the chairs around without scraping the wood underneath the rug. And in the living room, the sofa should rest on the rug entirely, or at the very least, partially. Any time you unroll a rug in your bedroom, you’ve got to consider where the other furniture is and if they might get in the way. 

Figure Out Which Patterns and Designs Look the Best 

The next step is to decide which patterns and designs you like the best. Interior design principles combine aspects of artistic and scientific sensibilities. Neutral colors work best for rooms where there is already a lot to look at, so your private library full of collectibles might not be the best place for a rug representing your favorite pop culture fandom. On the other hand, Bespoke rugs add plenty of pizazz to any room they are in, and as such, you’ll have to consider that as you fill out the associated space. Calmer paint colors and less exuberant fabrics, textiles, and other furnishings are the best way to go, at least in this case. 

Pick a Suitable Material for Your Rugs 

After you’ve finished dealing with all of those steps, selecting a material should be simple. So when you’re shopping for that perfect piece, stay away from synthetic fibers. Instead, you’ll be far happier with wool or silk fabrics.
