Home decorating is fun and after its completion is very fulfilling! The road to fulfillment however is a different story. Although the blessing of countless home decor ideas and alternatives are overwhelmingly good (homeowners have more options), they can also be confusing. Where to start? What to implement? What’s the best among the rest?
For example, a lot of the eastern European countries are heavily influenced by natural wood, particularly light grain woods. Wooden carvings are quite common in places like Poland and Russia and they are fast becoming used to adorn many walls in US homes.
One of the biggest influences worldwide that has crossed borders is the use of parquet flooring. This wooden floor material is available in different colors, grains and textures hence, it’s not surprising why it is easy to adapt. It can suit any theme. With an area rug to boot, parquet flooring has never looked this good!
Area rugs do more than just complement parquet flooring though. With a minimalist design becoming a top-notch theme, the use of area rugs as a home decor is becoming more and more popular. If you can’t go big with furnishings and accessories, then amplify your home’s beauty with these striking floor decorations.
The nice thing about parquet floor is its clean and polished appearance. With an area rug as a floor decoration, the flooring becomes more than just a material to step on, isn’t it? Specifically, if you place a white or cream-colored area rug that has an immaculate impression, it makes the floor look “untouchable.”
Parquet floor is a dynamic kind. Match it with a natural area rug or the shag kind makes it more striking. Display a light-colored area rug on a deeper shade of parquet material and the floor is even more emphasized. Additionally, the contrasting dark-light colors give the room a more eye-catching quality.
In selecting an area rug, ensure that its size is appropriate to the room. Smaller rooms will benefit with a circular rug. In other words, the rug’s size should be proportion to the room’s size.
The best shape for a larger rug in a medium to large size room is rectangular or oval. But bear in mind that you must have the open space in which to be able to display the rug for maximum effect. You must avoid standing anything on the rug and obscuring a full uninterrupted view.
There are times when it is acceptable to stand something on a small rug to give more impact. Typically this could be say; an oblong wrought iron coffee table with a clear glass top. In this instance it is important to match the rug to the shape of the object. So for example, a rectangular coffee table would be perfectly complicated sitting on a rectangular rug, providing of course that the rug is slightly bigger all round than the coffee table. Similarly, a round coffee table would look amazing sat on a larger round rug.
If you’re looking for a successful home decorating experience, don’t ever go without area rugs. With these decors, you’ll never go wrong. You will only be making your home better and better with each area rug.
