Picking The Right Color For Your Rug
Carpets come in a vast range of hues, so it’s important to pick wisely and personalize your space. You may select from solid to multi-colored elements depending on what best fit your needs.
Here are a few simple guidelines from Villedomo to help you choose the correct rug color:
Match the carpeting to the decor of your space
Each place has its own personality and function. Recognize the function that your room will serve for you and select the appropriate hue. If you want to make a small place appear larger, use bright colors. For such rooms, pastel colors, white, or a combination of pale and bright colors are appropriate. Use subdued blue or green tones in a room that is overly adorned or in a setting where you wish to install serenity. Monochromes are also a good choice for this type of setting. Choose colors like orange, crimson, or light green for your busy zones where you want a pop of color. Dark tones of burgundy, cocoa, or navy are also popular for a deep, rich look. These colors add coziness and warmth to the room while also giving it a classy appearance.
Follow the fundamentals
When choosing a rug, it’s generally a good idea to have a color scheme in mind. Choosing muted tones for a bright color scheme and a bright hue for a muted scheme can encourage the decor to blend along. For vividly colored walls, choose tones of grey and light tans. Warm yellow or orange walls are also options for light or subdued walls. The color of your rug will assist you in drawing the visitor’s attention to the appropriate area. If you’ve already decorated the space, make sure your rug coordinates with the blankets, cushions, and wall art to create a cohesive appearance. The idea is to choose a hue that accentuates the current decor.
For decisively furnished spaces
If your rooms are monochromatic, you can experiment with patterned carpets. A patterned rug may bring your home to life if you’re comfortable mixing and matching patterns. Your furniture can serve as a starting point for this; match the tones of your furniture to the carpeting.
Effective methods for deciding on a rug color
The house’s flooring is an important consideration when selecting a rug for your room. If your home’s floor is dark, you should choose a dark rug to match it.
Bright and pastel colors work as well on light-colored flooring. If you want your rug to be the focal point of your room, use muted walls and flooring and an exotic-colored rug. Bright reds, oranges, and blues — in fact, any color combination that sticks out — will work well together. As a result, the rug will become an immediate discussion starter and offer your space a distinct personality.
