It seems that the season of entertainment never ends! You can create a welcoming environment that will make a lasting impact on your guests with a few minor adjustments. The ultimate luxury is to show them their luxuriously furnished bedroom. When friends and family members are away from home, they will feel more comfortable in a well-designed guest bedroom.
The problem can be solved by adding a rug in a guest bedroom. This is one of many reasons to use a rug as a decoration. It could also be argued that it visually unifies the space by linking disparate elements. A rug can anchor, define, and add warmth to a room’s decor.
Here are some ideas to decorate your guest bedroom with area rugs.
Rugs are used to delimit areas of the room
Rugs can divide or describe areas such as dining or seating areas. This is especially useful in studio apartments and larger rooms where many areas need to be defined.
Place area rugs with different designs
Rugs are a great way to spice up a room. If you use two rugs to divide a space, ensure they are of the exact dimensions. Use rugs in different sizes to create a feeling of variety.
Use rugs with the same pattern and style
It’s best to use rugs with similar styles when using multiple mats. If you do not, you could end up with an unpleasant or jarring effect. If there are too many “warring patterns” in an area, it will not be comfortable.
Color and pattern ideas for area rugs
A favorite rug can be used as a foundation for a room’s color scheme. Installing it after the furniture has been placed allows you to use it as an accent color or to tie your existing colors together.
Visually quieten the room by turning up the volume or using a rug. Choose an area rug more subtly if your wallpaper or upholstery has an ornate pattern. If the walls and furniture are neutral, you can use a form with more detail or brighter colors to draw attention to your room.
Create a focal point
Rugs are a great way to bring a room together. Use one as a focal point. Paint your walls in a color that contrasts with one of the accent colors on your rug.
Play with Shapes
Do not make the mistake of thinking that a rug must be rectangular. Let the arrangement of your furniture dictate the shape of your carpet. Try experimenting with different forms. If you believe a circular, square, or oval shape would look better in your room than a rectangle, try it.
Do not forget to buy the correct size
When buying a rug, subtract 3 feet from the room’s width and length. The space appears more significant when the floor edges are left bare.
Always use a rug liner to prevent your rug from sliding. Rug liners should be large enough and suitable for the floor type to stop the rug from sliding.
