How to Decorate With a Floral Rug

Floral pattern rugs come in a variety of styles and look great in almost any room of the house. They are especially lovely when the spring season starts. If you’ve got your eye on a new floral rug but aren’t sure how to decorate with it, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Don’t Overdo It

Many floral rugs come off very bold, which is why they are such a great way to add life to an otherwise boring room. However, you will need to pay attention to other patterns in the room. Including too many different patterns such as dramatic stripes or polka dots will make the room look too busy or cluttered. Similarly, you don’t want all the other décor in your room to be bright and bold as well. Make sure to add some neutral colors and decorations to help balance it out.

Know the Look You’re Going For

A common mistake people make is to grab decorations they like and try and put them together without a clear vision or theme in mind. When choosing a floral rug or picking out decorations to complement the rug, make sure they share a similar style. For instance, a beachy floral rug with Hawaiian flowers will likely look out of place in a room full of rustic or chic décor. Additionally, consider adding modern touches to the space to avoid a room that feels too old fashioned.

Add Flowers to the Room

A great way to draw more attention to your new rug and help tie the room together is to incorporate flowers somewhere in the room. While real, cut flowers in a vase will add a fresh feel to the room and help complement your rug, fake flowers are fine too if it’s too much work or money buying new flowers every couple of weeks.
