Area rugs come in endless materials, patterns, colors and textures.
When choosing a carpet, Anderson says, there are two distinct directions one may go.
“It can be very patterned and bright, or very neutral,” he says.
His suggestion is to look at an ikat rug, meaning one with an intricate design, to add multiple colors and a strong graphic to the room.
A neutral rug can offer a subtle assistance to the color scheme and ambiance of the space to make it feel cozier.
Area rugs create a “connection” between the walls, uniting the space without drawing away from its size.
Places to look for rugs include HomeGoods and Carpet World, which has remnants for less than $100.
I chose to go with a neutral. My off-white area rug is 4 feet by 6 feet and was $44 at Target.
It adds dimension to my room and ties together my color scheme of black, white and turquoise.
