Don’t Feel Scared Of Bright Colours & Patterns 

Most of us want to use neutral colours in our house to create a subtle look. But this doesn’t mean that you need to divorce bright hues completely. Be it your bedroom (décor tips to style bedroom) or living room, you can always play with colours. We are not asking you to fill your room with bold shades, but to create a balance by placing a colourful rug in a plain white room, or something similar to that.

If you are feeling that the rug you just brought home is not looking suitable, maybe it's not the look of the rug that’s creating a problem but the size and the placement. Either you have brought a really small rug that is looking abrupt or you’re not placing it in the best way. A rug in any area must extend halfway under your furniture (easy homemade furniture polishes). If not, your room will look compact and the rug will not look sober in that area. 

Do Leave Proper Space

Placement of the rug can create a whole lot of difference. Your rug must not be placed disproportionately. Instead, balance out each side of the room. Ideally, there should be about 8 to 24 inches left on all sides. That’s why it is always recommended to measure your room before going for rug shopping. Don’t just depend on your instinct, you will end up with something that will look like a problem in your house.
