I recently did a post on how to pick an area rug, you can read it HERE. Shortly after that I received a message from a shy follower saying that they have been without a rug for 3 years, she's too nervous to buy.
What if it's not right?
What if it's not perfect?
I say JUMP RIGHT IN !
Ask the store what their return policy is and if it doesn't work - return it. I've worked with several stores that will let you 'borrow' an area rug, they keep your credit card number on file and if it's not returned in the agreed upon time, they'll charge you the price of the rug.
Take a paint swatch, fabric sample, wood floor sample and anything else that may influence the colours & type of rug you choose.
Take a look at these before & afters, you can see the
finished look an area rug provides.
Area rugs ground the room & define the space.
Here you can see the living & dining areas defined by the rugs.
Sleeping area, sitting area.
YES, area rugs are an important, a necessary element to your decor.
Now allow me to indulge in a few more rug images,
I'm sure I could easily become a rug collector - I love them all!!!
As always, any questions, just ask!
