In the current economic climate, with few people splashing the cash, it is still possible to give your room a new fresh look without breaking the bank. One really simple way to give a bit of a lift to your surroundings without having to redo the whole room is to buy a rug and this doesn’t have to be pricey; chosen with care, a budget priced or cheap rug will still make the room look good.
If your room is basically pastels or neutrals, a rug in a bright colour will give an accent note which will really lift the look. If you have a few primary colours already in the decor, such as a painting or a vase or ornament, by matching or blending with that predominant colour, you can tie the room together with that note and give the room an expensive look without spending much at all. Most carpet shops or DIY superstores have a good range of budget priced rugs to choose from and if you are lucky you will find that they have other accessories in the same colour range which can be brought in later to complete the look when you have a bit more cash.
ugs are a good choice if you have to economise on anything in your floor covering plans, as they are easily replaced if they start to look a bit tired and worn. Mostly, though, they will wear pretty well and if you go to the cheaper ranges you will often find you can afford more than one, giving a more luxurious look for your money. A rug in front of each of two sofas, for example, looks better than just one in the middle of the room and if you choose carefully could cost the same. The other great thing about a rug is that by simply moving it to another room, you can get a great new look.
