Just like curtains and bedding, a rug does not always be bright ad contrasting. It can very well be sober and subtle to just act as another accessory of the room. These rugs come in a variety of classic patterns that create a soothing and calming effect. Try going for rugs that blend in well with the interiors and the flooring to impart a harmonious feel. You can select from a variety of fabrics and can choose according to your budget and usage. If you are purchasing a rug for creating an extra seating area, try going for cotton or other soft fabrics, On the contrary, if a rug is used just for highlighting and adding colour, then even synthetic and slippery materials will also do. Earthy colours like brown, orange, beige and shades of white and yellow, blend in well with most of the decors for creating a unified effect.

Colours, colours and more colours. That’s what a child demands all the time. Colours make them happy. They make them satisfied and keep the playful mood always on. While a child’s room is always embellished with perky colours, adding a rug is another way to bring a delightful touch of colour on the floor as well. For a baby or a toddler you should be extra careful about the size of the rug as the child may trip over the loose ends. For older kids however, use as many and any colour of rug that makes them happy. Use of natural themes, princess rugs or even cartoon characters is a cool way to add colour and character to the room of your younger one. Make sure to keep changing the position of rug or keep rotating between 3-4 favourite patterns for breaking the monotony.
