Do you have reservations about buying a bold color area rug?
It’s not hard to find the courage to purchase one if you know a few tricks of the trade.
Follow Tufenkian’s guidelines to decorate your home with a bold color area rug.
Keep Furniture Neutral
When you incorporate bold colors or busy patterns into your décor, it’s essential to offer some visual relief in the room. You can achieve this goal by keeping your large pieces of furniture in neutral tones. This also allows you to change carpets in the future because your rug color won’t be tied to the couch or other pieces of furniture.
Use Color Accessories
Infuse the bold color of your rug into the room with accessories. Accent pieces such as pillows, vases, or artwork can carry a bright color throughout the space without overdoing it. If the rug has multiple colors, try blending one of the non-dominant colors into the rest of the room for a more cohesive look.
Consider a Rich Wall Hue
If you have an overdyed rug that’s saturated in color, your first instinct may be to stick to white walls. However, you can complement the carpet with a wall hue that’s just as lavish. You could even play off the tone of your rug with a wall color in the same family for a monochromatic look.
Show Off Your Bold Rug
You don’t want to cover up your bold color area rug with too much furniture. But if you need a coffee table, why not go with a glass piece that shows off the carpet? Being able to see as much of the vibrant rug as possible will allow you to enjoy its beauty even more.
Don’t Be Afraid of Patterns
Do you have children? What about pets? A bold color area rug with a pattern is ideal for covering up spots and stains that kids and dogs tend to leave behind. A bold pattern rug can also make a room appear larger and create depth depending on the design.
If You’re Still Scared, Start Small
If you’re still worried about going with a bolder look, try out a bright rug on the stairs or in the hallway first. A runner with bold colors can liven up a kitchen, laundry room, or other small space without making too much of a statement. There’s less chance you’ll get bored with a bold color if you don’t spend a lot of your time in the area.
