Accent rugs are probably one of the best accessories that you can add to a room to
really accentuate and bring out a theme or style. Often using pictures and words, an accent rug takes the concept
of rugs further than before and can actually become the central focus within an
interior. Many people actually choose to give their accent rugs pride of place
and hang it from the wall.
Accent rugs can be braided, Persian, Orientals, rag,
hooked and just about any other design. The concept that accent rugs have to be a specific style or shape or size
just doesn't apply. Wherever there is a need in a particular room for a subtle
contribution of warmth, accent rugs can and do fulfill a need. Be creative, and
don't bother limiting yourself to specific, mainstream ideology. Many original
concepts and ideas in decorating have evolved from a spontaneous impulse
the designer employed when addressing the needs of a particular area or room.
Accent rugs, no matter what you decide, provide just the right
ambience needed for that special room and can be a fun and convenient method of
reinventing a particular place in your home. They have the tendency to be less
monotonous than larger area rugs, and can be customized to blend together
existing colors and hues found in other areas of the room. If you
find one that you really like, it is easy to build a
room’s color scheme around it. The majority of these rugs will combine just two
or three principal colors, and whilst some people like to adopt all of these
colors, most people tend to choose just one or two upon which to focus their
design work, with the other shades perhaps being used as accent colors for minor
accessories like lamp shades and cushions.
Then once the accent rug is chosen, and you have
selected the color or colors that you want to work with, all you have to do is
find some other home furnishings that work well with this scheme, be it a sofa,
a carpet, curtains, wallpaper or paints. Accessorizing with
accent rugs can be the best part of decorating your new or existing home. With
the right choice, it will add greatly to the overall ambience to whatever room
you choose to display it.
Finding just the right accent rug doesn't have to be
stressful and time consuming. With improved technology enabling sharper print
definition, brighter colors and textures, as well as improved stain protection,
the sky's the limit when it comes to your choices. So, whether your needing
something for the kids room, a culinary design for the kitchen, a warm and
inviting touch in the bedroom, or a cozy addition to your family room, be
assured that this can all be accomplished with a little effort and reasonable
budget along with your unlimited imagination.
