Area rugs add an element of style to the bedroom and give the decor a relaxing appeal. They make a great winter accessory and come in a wide variety of tones and textures to suit different tastes and complement every decor style. A perfect blend of luxury fashion and restful function, rugs are an excellent way to add class, comfort, and a cozy factor to your bedroom.
If you’ve always wanted to make your bedroom look like it has been designed by a pro, check out these 6 tips for inspiration:
- Capture the Winter Shimmer with a Cool Color Palette
Winter is a magical season: gleaming icicles, sparkling snowflakes, and white plumes of crystalline snow turn the world into wonderland! You can recreate the mystical splendour of this mesmerizing season in your bedroom with a plush rug that plays up the shimmering vibe of the season. Take your pick from shades of blue, icy purples, whites, and greys to make it all feel, more welcoming and cozy. Coordinate the color of the rug with the bed, blankets, throw pillows, and curtains to create a harmonious effect.
- Pick Patterns That Add Pop and Pizzazz to Your Bedroom
A classic pattern that sets off visually from the rest of the bedroom will significantly enhance the sleeping area. If you want a quirky appeal, you can go with bold rug prints like checks, stripes, and polka dots but if your bedroom features multiple patterns, adding a solid rug would work to add some visual relief. You can also use multiple rugs to create an upbeat floor treatment that breaks the bedroom into distinct areas.
- Use Textured Cowhide Rugs to Complement Your Chic Wooden Flooring for a Rustic Charm
Create a cozy, whimsical space with high-quality, luxury cowhide rugs that come in a variety of tones and textures. Hibernate in style by juxtaposing a rich cowhide rug against rustic wooden flooring for a country-chic allure. Consider pairing the rug with matching cowhide cushions and complete the look with a jolt of color in the bedspread and curtains.
- Inject Some Drama and Depth with Versatile Tones
The trend for versatile tones only seems to be gaining traction. Warm up your bedroom with rusty reds, bright oranges, and golden yellows to give your bed that inviting appeal. Add some neutral-tone pillows and silky smooth blankets to keep in line with the room’s cheery style.
- Enhance the Visual Appeal with Some Layering
Rugs can make a good design concept look great, when you know how to use layering. Layering rugs, whether on a medium toned hardwood floor or a wall-to-wall carpet, is an artsy way to add some unexpected contrast in a playful manner. The trick is to pick tones and patterns that complement each other but are still distinct enough to create an extraordinary charm.
- Add Some Flare with Dark Fluffy Rugs
Fluffy carpets are making a comeback, or wait; had they ever left? Either way, dark and downy rugs are totally rocking it as they wonderfully coordinate with both muted and bright color schemes. Team up a dark-toned, fluffy rug with a contemporary bed frame and a stylish dresser for a lavish look. Finally, coordinate the color of the rug with the wall color to create a stunning, hypnotic appeal.
There is no better feeling in this world than waking up on a cold winter morning and experiencing the toe-sinking luxury of a warm rug beneath your feet. Contemporary area rugs are simple but also very stylish and luxurious if you can coordinate the right prints and patterns with contrasting tones and textures. So pick a rug that blends with your decor and tie all the elements of style together to turn your bedroom into a nice cozy corner that looks lavish and feels comfortable.
