There are hundreds of styles available, just chose one that goes with the theme in your home to create consistency and an overall stylised look. If your house is modern then opt for a modern rug. If it’s traditional then opt for a patterned traditional rug. It’s easy!
Often the hardest part is choosing the right colour of rug. It is important to make sure it suits the rest of your decor and furniture, as well as the floor you put it on. Whether you opt for a light colour, a dark colour, heavily patterned or plain it is important to remember that the rug can make or break a room so think carefully before you choose. If you are looking to make a statement, whilst making the rug the focal point then opt for a brightly coloured, patterned rug that can be a centrepiece. If you are just looking for consistency and to tie the room together then opt for a plain rug that matches the colours in the room without standing out too much.
A light room will benefit from a light coloured rug, but beware of stains! If your room has darker tones then a darker rug will suit. If you want a rug that fills the room then it is worth investing a bit more money for a heavy wearing one that won’t need much upkeep.
