living room rugs

Have you ever been browsing online or in catalogs and feeling inspired to change the look of your whole house? You know the theme that you want, and you know the look that you want, but you aren’t quite sure how to get there? If so, you are not alone. People don’t have the time, money, or knowhow to figure out where to start. The whole process can be so overwhelming you might give up altogether. Key things to take into consideration when trying to upgrade your living room are, furniture, storage, lighting, artwork, and living room rugs

Here is what we have to say about redecorating. Baby steps. What does that even mean? It means you need to start small and let the snowball effect take its course through your whole house. It’s going to be a process, and of course, everyone is well versed in patience, so that won’t be a problem. Just kidding – but seriously, patience is key. Don’t be hasty. To get the look and style you want takes time. It won’t happen overnight, and you probably don’t want it to. Once you get started, you will realize that each piece you bring into your home has a purpose and a story. 

All good things take time, so we will reiterate that patience is key here. However, if your house doesn’t make you feel happy, then you need to make some changes. 

Furniture

Maybe you are finally getting rid of the furniture you had in college and can make some big purchases yourself. It’s a great feeling to know you worked hard for what you have and to get pieces that work together instead of having to work so hard to piece things together. Getting new furniture that you love and that is comfortable is a great way to fall in love with your living room.  

You may have the most comfortable couch that you aren’t willing to part with, but it is starting to look a little worn. Slipcovers, throw pillows, and blankets are all fairly inexpensive ways to add more life to your furniture and draw attention to the accessories instead of the fact you like to sit in the same spot on your couch. 

The addition of a coffee table, end tables, and lamps can also bring more function and style to your room. 

Storage

Have you ever been browsing online or in catalogs and feeling inspired to change the look of your whole house? You know the theme that you want, and you know the look that you want, but you aren’t quite sure how to get there? If so, you are not alone. People don’t have the time, money, or knowhow to figure out where to start. The whole process can be so overwhelming you might give up altogether.

Storage

If you’re in your living room right now, then look around. What do you see? For most people, they notice a lot of clutter that they don’t know how to handle. Investing in proper storage will make a huge difference right away. One way to do this is with the addition of a built-in. These can be pretty expensive and perhaps not something you want to do right now. 

There are many great DIY options that you might have fun doing and getting ideas from. Once you get the clutter under control, you will feel like a weight has been lifted off because everything has its place. If that place is hiding behind something that isn’t visible, then who cares. Plus, if you have kids or pets, it’s challenging to make their toys look like pieces of artwork that belong there. You want your room to be functional, but you also want it to look neat and tidy – some of the time. 

Walls and Artwork

Wall color should have probably been the first thing discussed on this list. Nothing can make a living room feel less welcoming than neon green walls yelling at you. Make sure the wall color is a color you are happy with. If you like bold, be bold. If you like neutral, be neutral. Wall color is a fun way to play around with color, and it’s only a weekend project if you decide you don’t like the color. 

Artwork can be whatever you want it to be. If you want to display pictures of yourself and your family, then do that. If you don’t want those pictures on your living room wall, then don’t put them up. The artwork on the walls gives the room a completed feel, but there is no rule to say what the artwork needs to be.  

Living Room Rugs

Unlike some of the other pieces mentioned above, living room rugs aren’t DIY projects. Living room rugs are investment pieces. A rug will make or break a room. There is so much that a rug can add to a room. Warmth, texture, and color, to name a few. It is a piece of handcrafted artwork for the floor, and if it’s done well, it can make you feel like an interior designer genius. If done improperly, it can leave you feeling like all of your hard work still left you with a room that doesn’t feel finished. 

Living room rugs should bring the space together. This is done by one simple guideline – get a rug that is large enough for space. The rug you get should hold the couches and chairs, or at least the front legs. This is crucial; otherwise, your rug will look out of place and thrown down as an afterthought.

Living room rugs are one of the least thought about pieces, but it can truly transform any space. 

Do not rush your decisions. Investment pieces should take some time and consideration before making a purchase. Start by getting your room ready and keeping your goals in mind. What do you want your space to feel like, what do you want your space to become? With time it will become all of those things, but the important thing is that you are patient. There is no harm in looking and seeing the great deals that RugSource has to offer. Keep your eye out for a good deal and then jump on it when you do. We want to be a part of your journey because we know that a rug is more than just a rug.
