Article Source: – How to Choose the Right Colored Rug

For many people, shopping for a new rug is both an enjoyable and stressful experience at the same time. While most people can agree that it’s nice to get a new rug in the house, the possibility of choosing a rug that will clash with the rest of the room it sits in is quite high. For those who are not proficient with color matching and design, choosing the right colored rug can be rather difficult. The fact is, so long as you take inventory of the rest of the colors in the room, choosing the right rug doesn’t have to be difficult. By taking into consideration the following advice, you can ensure that your rug looks as if it was made specifically for the room you put it in.

Compliment or Contrast ?

The first thing to take into consideration is whether or not you would like the rug you purchase to compliment the rest of the room or to serve as a contrasting element. Depending upon which one of these you are going for, each will require a drastically different rug. For example, if you plan to place the rug in a room that features a modern design made up almost entirely out of black furniture, a stark black rug would make an excellent complimentary piece. If you would prefer to add contrast rather than a compliment, you would go with a stark white rug. Both options will match the room, yet the effect on the room’s ambiance will be drastically different depending upon which option you go with. In the end, the decision comes down to personal preference.

Avoid Clashing

Perhaps the biggest issue faced by those who are trying to find the right colored rug for their home is clashing. Clashing can be difficult to pick up on until the rug is actually placed in the room, which is why so many people purchase and return rugs in quick succession. One of the best ways to avoid clashing is to use a paint chip from you wall and compare the rug you intend to purchase with the chip. Clashing is usually quit obvious, and requires no knowledge of design; if the colors don’t look right together, move on to a different colored rug.
