Using Violet Rugs
Violet rugs are relatively easy to decorate with but choosing your favorite might be a challenge. By identifying exactly what you’re looking for, however, you can narrow down your options to make it easier to pick one.
Below, we’ve included some helpful tips to help you find the perfect violet area rug for your home:
Pick Your Style
Violet vintage rugs will have a much different impact than geometric or abstract options. And there’s a big difference between a solid violet rug and a gray, blue, orange, or green and violet rug. Decide on the style you want in the room you’re decorating before you buy.
Consider making a color palette of four to five colors, including neutral, to make your choice easier. And identify the style your home is decorated in to refine your search.
The location that you decide to place your rug will impact the durability and materials that you’re looking for. For example, violet bath rugs exposed to high levels of moisture will be smaller and more durable than a wool violet rug 7x9 for the bedroom.
Also, consider the traffic and exposure levels in the room. You’ll need different violet bathroom rugs for a half bathroom with high foot traffic than for a full bathroom with no foot traffic.
Measure the room that you’re decorating and subtract 4’ from the width and length to find the maximum rug size. For example, a 12x14 living room could accommodate an 8x10 violet rug. Meanwhile, a 6x12 hallway could accommodate a 2x8 violet runner rug.
Once you pick dimensions, we recommend trying our room visualizer tool to see the rug in your space . If it seems too small or too large, try another size.
Buy a Rug Pad
Rug pads prevent sliding damage on hard floors, adding years to the life of your rugs. They also add an extra layer of insulation and keep your rugs in place. Before you checkout, add a pad to your cart for every rug you’re buying so that your violet rugs are protected from day one.
