​​​​​​​Tip of the Day: What to do About an Area Rug That’s Too Small?

Hi folks!  Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ and today I wanted to talk about a problem that some people face when it comes to decorating with their area rugs.  I know how much time we all spend on the decoration of our homes - we always want things to look just right and look, well, homey! Sometimes an area rug can be too small or too large to be used in the space that you really want to.  And even though you really like the rug, perhaps you’re thinking of nixing the rug altogether and going in a different direction… BUT THINK AGAIN!

Here are just a couple of creative solutions for decorating with area rugs in your home…

Try layering rug on top of one another!  This style has been gaining a lot of traction in the interior design world and it’s pretty easy to see why - placing a smaller rug on top of a larger, complementary rug changes everything!  Not only have you solved the problem of having a rug that’s too small, but you are also able to bring in the colors and designs from both the large and small rug throughout the room!

Or maybe your rug is too large or overwhelming for the room… A smaller rug over the larger rug can take away the business of the larger area rug and voila!  You’ve hidden the things you don’t like about the original rug and have even created a fresh new design that goes better with the rest of your home.

Accenting the design of the interior space of your home using area rugs is not only great for your home, but it can also be a lot of fun, too!  Perhaps you’ll create the next “to die for” magazine trend, or maybe you’ll just turn your home into the envy of all your friends. Either way, there’s a lot that can be done with just area rugs alone!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
