Do you sometimes sit in your living room, study or bedroom and wish you could wave a magic wand and make it a bit more zingy and bright? Well, looking through the huge range of rugs on sale at rugzone.co.uk isn’t quite like waving a wand, but is pretty near to it. Using multi-coloured rugs to brighten up a room is quick, easy and inexpensive and within a couple of days you could be enjoying your new look home.
People do sometimes worry about using bright colours in their decor but as long as you follow a few rules it is hard to go wrong. If you have quite a ‘busy’ decor with a lot of patterns, it is best to go for one block of colour if you can. A contemporary rug with perhaps one or two bold motifs might be okay as well, but it is a good plan to make sure that you match the style – in other words, if you have florals, stick to a modern rug with a floral motif. This way, the added rug looks planned.
If you have a predominant colour or shade, you have a choice when it comes to buying from Rug Zone’s rug sale. You can choose to match or tone with your main colour, or you can devise a clever ‘clash’ which will give it some extra wow factor. Colours which blend particularly well if you can’t manage a perfect match are the blues and greens, both with each other and themselves. Reds, oranges and the hotter colours are more difficult and unless you can get a perfect match you should avoid using large rugs in these colours or you may have guests flinching instead of feeling at home – two clashing reds can make a room feel quite ‘edgy’ according to colour therapists.
If you have room for it, large rugs in bright colours have the most impact as they really can pull the decor together. If you have tended to furnish in bits and pieces as most people do, the finishing touch of a large, bright rug can make all the difference. There are some classic combinations which will stand the test of time. For example, if you have mainly wood tones in your room, a green rug in the teal spectrum will look great, as would terracotta rugs scattered around. Mixing and matching is what using colour is all about.
