What Can I Do If the Area Rug I Love Is to Small? - Sedona AZ

What Can I Do If the Area Rug I Love Is to Small? - Sedona AZ

A lot of time and effort goes into decorating our homes.  We want everything to come together and look exactly the way we want it.  We spend a lot of time in our homes and it’s where we entertain a lot of company as well so we want our homes to look BEAUTIFUL!  This includes the stunning area rugs chosen for our floors.

Sometimes we fall in love with a rug that is either too small or maybe even too large for our rooms.  It can be a real problem when you’re working on getting your home’s décor perfect.  Should you just nix the rug all together and go in a different direction?  THINK AGAIN!

Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ and today I wanted to take a moment and talk about the importance of area rugs making sense in your home.

Finding an area rug that perfectly complements the other colors in the room isn’t always the easiest thing in the world.  When you do find that perfect rug, though, you also have to consider the size of the rug.  If you’ve fallen for a rug that’s a little small for your room, I might have an idea for you.

TRY LAYERING!  Layering rugs with one on top of the other is a fun, fresh look and is something that has been gaining a lot of traction in the interior design world lately.  I have to agree that it looks fabulous!  Placing a smaller rug on top of a larger rug suddenly changes everything and the rugs can make a dream team that fits the room perfectly.  The larger rug can act as a border for the smaller rug, which is lots of fun now that you get to choose the border around your small rug.  The larger rug can complement the design of the smaller rug and really pull the whole room together.  You’ve also just solved your problem of having a rug that’s too small!

On the other hand, you may have a rug that is a bit overbearing for the room.  Perhaps there are too many colors or there’s a busy design that just isn’t working.  Placing a smaller rug over the larger rug can create an entirely different look and feel.  Voila!  Instant makeover for your floor!  You can also hide all the things you didn’t like about the original rug (maybe even including a stain).

It can be a whole lot of fun decorating with rugs.  Letting your imagination run away a bit might just lead you to create the next “to die for” magazine rage, or even just make you the envy of all your friends!

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