I’m finally writing this post on Area Rugs, a post that’s been requested multiple times. Better late than never right? Let’s get started. The area rug we have in our living room has been amazing to us so far. We spent about $450(on sale now for $100 less) bucks on it and we got a 9’10×14 which is a pretty big size rug. It’s always daunting when you’re buying rugs online, however if you can stick through some of the pain of searching for the right one then you can get a good rug for a good price. Or… you just wait for your friend Rashmi to just search and share her top picks. LOL I got you! 🙂
Here are my quick tips if you’re in the market for a rug:
- Have a color in mind, if you have dark couches, lighten up the room by adding a cream or light colored rug and vice versa, if you have a light colored couch, add a pop of color to the room.
- If you’re going for a very LOUD pattern or color, make sure you coffee table is simple and clean, you don’t have to conflict with the color or patterns.
- Make sure you’re getting the right size for your room. Most furniture websites offer the sizing ratio and placement of rug based on your rooms. It’s a FREE advice, use it!
- You can get creative by getting a neutral large rug and then on top putting in another smaller rug to add depth and focal point to a room.
I know you may be thinking, well these are obvious tips, but trust me when I say this, I’ve seen it one too many times, when people have bought rugs without thinking about these simple tips in their head.
Hope these quick tips help while you’re shopping for your rug! And as always below are my top picks for area rugs from Wayfair. In addition, you can also shop the other items that on my post below by scrolling through the items or directly on my liketoknow.it app.
