How a Solo Rug Area Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A Solo Rug area rug can highlight your room’s decor by reinforcing an existing color scheme, contributing to the room’s tone, and expressing your style. Adding a rug to a room shouldn’t be an afterthought; instead, view it as an opportunity to have one larger piece that really defines the room’s look and feel.
Decorating With a Solo Rug Area Rug
Solo Rugs is a brand that many go to for unique rugs. Their rugs are known for being handmade and one of a kind. Sometimes, that even means that the rug is literally the only one of its kind! Even if you choose a rug that isn’t that rare, you still can choose a stunning luxury rug that’s masterfully crafted and perfect for your home.
Choosing Which Solo Rug Area Rug is Right for You
As you shop for a rug that’s just right for you, consider these key topics to guide your search.
Position: First, you should determine your room’s layout and where you want to set your rug. These general ideas will steer you in the right direction.
Living Room: Oftentimes, Solo Rug area rugs are used to ground your main seating area. If that’s the case in your room, then you can set the rug in front of the seats, under their front legs, or further under the chairs. Alternatively, you can use a smaller rug elsewhere in the room to establish a smaller sitting area.
Dining Room: When you’re setting up your dining room, you want a rug that will not only fit under the table, but also extend an extra two or so feet on each side so the chairs have plenty of room.
Bedroom: If your bed is the central focal point of the room, accent it by layering a rug with the bed. The most common setups are to place the rug all the way under the bed, under the bottom two-thirds of it, or closer to the foot of the bed. If your bed’s off to one side, center a rug in the middle of the room itself or right along the side of the bed.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 rugs are ideal in front of a sink, stove, or anywhere else you tend to stand still. If you want to provide comfort to those areas and make a longer path, then use a Solo Rug runner instead.
Bathroom: Bathrooms will also use runners to establish a path, but they can also be used to accent a double vanity. Another idea is to use those smaller 2x3 and 3x5 rugs by sinks, tubs, or showers.
Size/Shape: Once the layout is decided, you can choose the size and shape of your rug. Each of these aspects is dependent on the other, so decide them at the same time. Consider the size of the room itself, the scale of the rug to the other furniture, and how you want everything to overlap. That will help you determine if you want an 8x10 rectangular rug, a 8’ round rug, or something else.
Pattern: Solo Rugs area rugs are magnificently designed so they fit into many different homes. You’ll find some that showcase luxury boho styles, vintage oriental prints, or other designs. Plus, you can look at the rug’s texture/pile-height for another aspect of the rug’s design and how it affects the pattern. After all, a shag rug has a different feel from a flat-weave, even if they do show the same design.
Color: Color is another key aspect in deciding the rug’s style and tone. Your rug’s palette should tie into the rest of the room and convey the same tone as the other wall art, poufs, pillows, and miscellaneous decor.
