5 Inspiring Ways to Use Rugs in Your Home Decor

Are you wanting to incorporate rugs into your home decor?

There are many ways to do it depending on the size of your home, and what you want to do with it. You can do a bunch of neat things with them though.

Some people like to use them to separate rooms, some to just add a splash of colour, and some just to add some variety. You could just want a rug but you’re just undecided. A little bit of inspiration might help you out a little bit in your choices. Here are five unique and stylish ways to use rugs in your home.

1. Define Areas

Defining areas is something that is very crucial if you have an apartment. There may not be a distinct place where your dining room starts and your living room ends.

You can use a rug to make this distinction and liven both rooms up a little bit. It also works for bedrooms and hallways as well.

2. Create Variety

You can use two rugs of the same size to cut a room into two parts like in the example above, or you can use different sized ones to create a little variety.

Using different sized rugs can be a fun way to bring a little character to a room in your house or apartment.

3. Add More Interest to a Room, but Not Too Much

Even though you want your rugs to be of varying shapes to keep interest in a room, you don’t want them to be different patterns.

Having a bunch of differently patterned rugs will be a little distracting to the eye, and honestly, kind of jarring. You need your entire design scheme to come together in perfect balance.

4. Have Fun with Shapes

You don’t have to do with your basic, everyday rectangular rug. You need one that can complement your furniture and not all those can do that.

You have a choice between rectangles, squares, round ones, or ovals. Just find out which one you think would go best with how you have your furniture arranged. If you do it right, you can even make your rooms look larger.

5. Colour Unity

Not only do you want the shape of your rug to compliment your furniture, but the colours as well. You need to decide the basic colour scheme of the room and then get a rug that goes with that.

You can do that in any way you want, but one of the best ways is to get your furniture in order first, and then choose your rug colours around that.

Use Rugs in Your Decorating

If you use rugs in your home decorating, you can add a unique splash to any of your rooms. As must as you want to show off your personality with your rooms though, you want everything to come together in harmony with rug size, colour, and shape. Have fun, but not too much fun.
