Once you have found the perfect rug that you must have in your home at all costs, it can be incredibly difficult working it into your existing décor. A rug can work as a starting point for the rest of your interior design, or you may have to put in some extra effort to incorporate it well. Below are some tips on how to decorate around your favorite modern abstract area rugs.
- You Cannot Take it Shopping With You
One thing to remember is that you cannot realistically cart your rug around while shopping for other décor. Instead, take some pictures of the rug in good lighting to help compare it to other elements for the room.
- Do Not Worry About Coordinating Everything
It is okay to build your room around the rug, but not everything has to match perfectly. If you are worried about committing too much to the color scheme or pattern of the rug long-term, stick to neutral, modern pieces that can match anything you put against them.
- Arrange Furniture to Help The Rug’s Shape
If your rug is round or oval, arrange your furniture off the edge to define the shape. Alternatively, you can use a square or rectangular rug to section off a portion of an open floor plan to separate that space from others.
- Do Not Be Afraid to Make a Statement
