I want to talk about Rugs, why I love them and why you need them.
I am sure that some of you are thinking that you already have carpet, so why do you need a rug? Well, a rug will do a couple of things for a space.
A rug will define a space. This tip is especially true if you have a home with an open floor plan. A rug will help you define an eating area or seating area.
When you use a rug, please make sure that you don’t float your rug. Meaning, you want to have a piece of furniture anchor the space. It can be a couple chair legs, the edge of a couch or a table. Just make sure that you something on the rug.
Spend some money on a rug. I want to tell you a little story. I was redoing my kitchen and I needed a rug, right then. So, I went to Target & found a super cute rug. While the rug was darling, the quality left a lot to be desired. It wasn't 6 months later that it I had to replace it because of snags and durability issues. Learn from me. Spend a little bit of money on a rug. I have found the Home Goods, World Market, & Tuesday Morning are great, affordable resources for rugs.
One last idea. If you are wanting a custom look, you can totally make your own rug using Cutting Edge stencils, paint and a plain rug.
I made a few rugs with the help of some spray paint and an outdoor rug.
Jen from Tatertots & Jello has some awesome tutorials on how to do this as well.
