Let me start by saying, I cannot recommend this rug more!
While many would argue that paint is the best way to transform your drab room, I tend to disagree. I am a big believer that your rug choice is what matters most. First and foremost, you want a rug that is the right size for your space. A "too tiny rug" can instantly kill the room's vibe.
One common mistake that I see homeowners make is choosing a 5'x8' rug when their room is really in need of an 8'x10' or larger. If you're overcome with rug size shame right now, think of it this way....Say the average room in your home is 12'x15'. If you shrink the furniture foot print to be placed on a 5'x8' rug, you're selling your space short.
Next, you'll want to pay attention to style. Now, not every room calls for rugs that are so colorful. If you have a seriously saturated or perfectly patterned sofa, you might want to go neutral with your rug. However, if your space is a bit too BLAH, I suggest you kick up the color and pull out a fun pattern. These ten rugs are sure to make an artfully bold impact in any space. Pay attention to price when selecting the right rug. Areas to splurge: living room, master bedroom. Areas to save: dining room, kid's room. Keep in mind, only you determine what is worth it. A $1200 rug is a splurge piece to some and savings to others.
