Most people add area rugs to protect their hardwood floors from scratches. Others do so to protect their feet from the cold flooring, especially during the winter. But area rugs do more than just that, it can also upgrade the look and feel of your room, making it look stylish and unique.

Here are some tips on how to incorporate area rugs in a room’s design.

Pick where you go bold

Your home should reflect your style and personality. Some people want to add some fun and excitement to their interiors by incorporating some bold colors and patterns. While it’s great to add some personality to your space, we recommend that you choose certain areas in your home to continue your bold aesthetics. Adding area rugs to certain parts of your room will make it unique and stylish.

Design your room around the rug

New homeowners are fortunate enough to start with a blank canvas. They are given the opportunity to decorate the house according to their heart’s desire.

Since most houses have neutrals in the walls, it would be a good idea to bring in pops of colors into your home décor. If you are bold enough to try bold area rugs, now is the perfect time to do so. You can start with a bold color like red, yellow, orange or violet and then build the décor around it. Once you decide which color to get for your rugs, then you can move on to your furniture, window treatments and accessories.

Bold patterns with neutral color

If you are looking to add area rugs into your interiors, you need to take into account the color of the wall, furniture and accessories. You want to choose an area rug that would unite all these elements, not clash with them.

If your furniture colors are burgundy and red, dark hardwood floors and bold-colored accessories, then it might be best to choose a neutral-colored rug. But if you are looking for an area rug that would add some pizzazz to your space, we recommend choosing something with bold patterns, but neutral colors. Pick a rug with large, powerful images – something that can serve as the focal point of the room. Since it is in neutral color, it won’t be overpowering to the eyes.
