When it comes time to design and decorate a space, it can be exciting and easy to get carried away. However, taking the process one step at a time can make sure you end up with a cohesive look.
One of the first things you might want to consider when redecorating a room is the area rugs you plan on using in the space. With the right area rugs, you can potentially make a room feel larger and set the tone for the rest of the decor.
HGTV states what when shopping for area rugs, it's important to consider your lifestyle. If you have children or pets, for instance, you will want to choose a rug that is composed of a durable fiber.
The size of the rug should also be a key factor while shopping. HGTV suggests looking for area rugs that are a little smaller than the amount of the room covered by furniture for a look that flows and caters to the rest of your decor.
Once you have your area rugs picked out, you can move on to picking out everything from kitchen curtains and dining room sets to complete your home.
