The Importance of Rug Color
Area rugs add instant color to a space, making a big impact on the look & feel of a room. There are multiple ways to coordinate rug color with the rest of your décor. On one hand, rugs can offer a quiet & subtle complement to your décor. On the other hand, bold colors can turn a rug into a focal point or even the basis of your entire design. Keep in mind that light-colored rugs will make a room feel airy, while darker styles tend to create a more intimate feeling.
How to Use Rug Patterns & Designs
Bold colors & active or ornate designs will draw attention to your rug, while subtle patterns & solid colors work best as quiet complements to other décor. You’ll find rugs organized into a few broad categories, including contemporary, traditional & transitional styles. Contemporary rugs often feature geometrics & simple patterns. Traditional rugs tend to feature floral or organic designs. Transitional rugs blur the lines between these two categories. Keep in mind that patterned rugs or solid dark colors will show fewer stains.
Fiber’s Impact on Cost & Durability
Rugs are available in a variety of natural & man-made fibers. Natural fibers include wool, silk, cotton, & jute among others, and are often prized for their warmth, luster & beauty. Synthetics like nylon and polypropylene are durable & easy to maintain, sometimes featuring built-in resistance to various types of common wear & tear. They also tend to be more affordable because of the availability of the material – many are even fully recyclable, having been made from recycled content.
