When you want to give a room a makeover, the first thing that comes to mind often involves opening several cans of paint.
Adding a rug to the room could be a less time-consuming method for refreshing a space, and as long as you measure the area before you shop, you shouldn’t run into any complications.
When you paint, you may need to do a test patch, then make a separate trip back to the store to have the perfect shade mixed up once you’ve chosen the one that works best in your home.
Rugs, on the other hand, offer an immediate transformation, absorb sound, and keep your feet warmer than a hardwood or tiled surface.
The Eivor Cirkel can brighten up a space with its white background. The subtle navy blue pattern adds visual interest without automatically taking over the room.
This rug can be a focal point, but it doesn’t have to be.
If you love big, bold rugs in girlish colors, the Stockholm Figur may be your new favorite.
If your walls are a neutral color and you’re dying to add some pizzazz without breaking out the paint, this choice will add warmth to your room, adding life to a room of rich brown leather furniture or wood finishes.
To feel like you’re on vacation even when you’re far from the beach, consider the Hula Calm rug. In a room of mostly black, white, gray, or even soft tan, this will add a tropical feel.
Rugs are often more expensive than paint, but if you’re interested in adding a special touch to the room without altering the walls or setting yourself up for a weekend of sore muscles, this route may be just what you need.
They’re also interchangeable, so you can switch them from season to season or room to room.
