Blue Area Rugs, Square Area Rugs, Round Area Rugs And All Kinds Of Rugs: How To Select

By Gregg

Before you go out to purchase blue area rugs or any other type of rug, you should already have some idea of the ways you room can benefit from a rug. List down all these practical and aesthetic uses that a rug will be good for in your room. Then prioritize them depending on what functionality (practical or aesthetic) you should prioritize.

Blue area rugs can make very attractive room centerpieces and this is, in fact, one of the best ways to use them. Before opting for a centerpiece rug, be sure the room which is to contain the rug is wide enough not to be stifled by it. You will be placing the rug somewhere near the center of the room, surrounded by some pieces of furniture. That ensemble can easily make a room look narrow and uncomfortable.

The center of the room or some other visually advantageous location should be selected in order for people coming in to see the centerpiece blue area rugs immediately and to associate the rest of the room with their designs and colors. You will find centerpiece rugs at the feet of long sofas lined up against a wall. These rugs will therefore be responsible for giving your guests their first impression of the room. As such they should be carefully selected for their attractive patterns.

But if you would rather just have plain blue area rugs, these may still be effectively used as centerpieces by adorning them with accessories; like pillows and yoga mats. The colors of the rug should be enhanced by the complementary or pleasantly contrasting colors of the accessories.

To add functionality to centerpiece blue area rugs, you can provide it with a small and light-colored table. Wide, dark tables will overwhelm the rug such that you can’t consider is as a centerpiece anymore. Something along the lines of glass and metal tables would be appropriate. Go for an economically designed table that won’t draw attention to itself.

Alternatively, you might want your rug to frame a furniture set. In that case, choose a shade of blue that will just accent the color of the set and not draw the eyes away from the set. Medium blues are best for a framing rug for furniture. The dimensions of the rug should allow the furnishings to fit in comfortably. In the case of a dining room furniture set, make sure that the rug is wide enough so that when people are seated, the chairs will still be standing on the rug.

Rugs are also used to define furniture sets or group furniture together. In such cases, the shade of you blue area rug should be somewhat subdued. Stay away from bright or dark tints of blue. Matte and light blues would be appropriate. Go for sparing designs. Remember that this rug will be covered by furniture so that its designs won’t really be seen. In case you are framing a dining table and chairs in the rug, choose a rug wide enough to contain the chairs even when people are seated on them.

Other people purchase rugs to accent and make the color scheme of the room vibrant. In such cases, they often go for blue area rugs the have little or no design and use it as a centerpiece or a framing rug.

Oftentimes, people buy rugs to provide color on their floors. In such cases, the rug should be designed in such a way as to complement the motif of the room. If no such design is available, you can settle for a plain rug with a color that is complementary or pleasingly contrasts with the color of the room itself.
