RALATED HISTORY: 5 PLACES FOR WOOL RUGS: HOW TO CHOOSE?

 

So, let’s learn some tips on how to arrange your colorful (or not) contemporary or modern rugs. Find below some of the main rules for choosing and placing your rugs.

 

1. Choosing a rug that’s too small

2. Avoiding animal inspired prints
Say “no” the natural leather or animal skin, but you can have fun with synthetic patterns. Try them.

3. Leaving your wall-to-wall carpeting bare

4. Choosing your rug last
If you’re decorating your room from scratch, choose the rug FIRST. It’s the  big, impactful piece that ties a room together.

6. Missing out on a discount
If you’re looking for a great price on unique, vintage rug, like a Persian one or Turkish kilim, try eBay. They have a huge selection and always run sales.
