Styling Your Home With Area Rugs


Your home is your castle, and from every piece of furniture to every framed piece of art - you rule with beauty and sophistication. Of course, there is one thing that can tie all of this together, and that is an area rug. An area rug can anchor your beautiful furniture, and bring all of your design together. At John Elliot Interiors, we know the value of having quality furniture and style in your home, so we aim to provide you with the pieces and the knowledge to do so. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right rug for your space - and how we can help!

The Focal Point

A rug may be considered an accessory to a room, but in many cases, it’s the focal point. Depending on your style, and the colors and patterns that you want to have in your space, you may even want to purchase your rug before anything else. When you choose the perfect rug for your room, you can then choose wall colors that accent it, and furniture that works in contrast with your rug.

The Perfect Sizing

The size of your area rug all depends on the way you want to have your furniture placed in your space. Many designers recommend that the front two legs of your furniture be placed on the rug to help “anchor” it in the space. A good rule of thumb to choose a rug that is slightly smaller than the area that your furniture takes up. You want to be able to anchor the rug, but you also want to have room around the rug for your flooring to shine through.

Make It Bold

It’s time to take a leap of faith, and do something bold and exciting. Your rug doesn’t have to be boring - it can boast of bold patterns, exciting colors, and lush textures. Your rug has the opportunity to be the focal point that can stand out and draw attention with bold colors and patterns, so why not? A rug is also a nice way to incorporate these patterns that you may not want to commit to on your larger furniture pieces.

Shapes & Sizes

The best thing about area rugs, is that they come in many shapes and sizes. From long rectangle rugs, to small circular rugs, and even hexagonal rugs. No matter what size room you have, or what furniture pieces you have decorated with - at John Elliot Interiors, we can help you find the perfect area rug for your space.
