If you are seeking to inject some color and liven up any room in your house, whether it be a bedroom, living room, dining room or kitchen, a red rug may be a great choice. Area rugs are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes and designs, and can be purchased to fit any budget. If you are ready to add a red rug to your decorating scheme, here are some things to consider.
1. Decide what you need & what you want
First, take a look at the furniture and decorations you currently have in the room to see what type of rug will work best. Some questions to consider: How big of a rug do you need? What shape will work best with your decorating scheme? Does a deep burgundy or a bright red match your style better? Is high pile or low pile more practical for your family and lifestyle? Do you desire a solid color rug, a mostly red rug with some chevrons or stripes, or a patterned rug with some red mixed in? Once you answer these questions, you will establish a general idea of the type of rug you are looking for.
2. Start your research
A good place to begin looking at red area rugs is online. This allows you to view hundreds of styles in the comfort of your own home. You can narrow your search with keywords from the questions you already answered about the rug you need and want. Shopping online will allow you to get an idea of the price range of rugs you are looking at.
Now that you have made a decision and done your homework, you can purchase and bring home the rug of your dreams. Some good places to pick up your rug are home improvement stores (Home Depot, Lowe’s), big box chains (Target) or discount department stores (JC Penny, Kohl’s.)
Enjoy the splash of color and personality your new red rug brings to your home. It will look beautiful!
