How to Add Color to a Room Without Painting!

Geometric Rugs

Add a Geometric Rug

Art is Not Only for Walls, Geometric Rugs Benefit Floors with an Artistic Flare!

When designing a room by either you or a professional decorator the first object to take into consideration should be a color scheme. A neutral room can be totally changed with one addition, and that is a geometric rug. Now one would ask why start out from a rug to the decorate a room, and to answer that question consider you have a neutral room and like your wall colors, but it looks drab and all your furniture seems to blend in with nothing defined. A geometric splash of color can incorporate new selections of furniture based on the color scheme of an artistic geometric rug. The basic color for the walls can also be the base of the rug, and if there are splashes of violet, green, and red in that rug, you could choose a sofa with one of those colors and drapes with another.

The typical neutral painted wall becomes the basic canvas of your room’s centerpiece and the geometric rug draws in a definite design by establishing a color scheme for furniture and even art to be hung on the walls.

Most designers use a geometric rug in the center of the furniture staging, or in front of a fireplace. You will be surprised that some of these colors used in the room decorations, or even art on the wall could be centered from the geometric rug placed in the room? Check the internet for sites for examples, artistic rugs are easily bought online and become the focal point of your otherwise neutral room.

This will inspire you as a home designer or a professional interior decorator, to add splashes of color in furniture and decorations. You may ask how can that be done, and yet people every day are inspired to buy a painting based on the colors of their interior designs. The geometric rug can be the same as a painting, only instead inspires the decorator in what other colors to add to a room.

A typical neutral room which many people have, and they become frustrated since it isn’t designed well as a color scheme and they don’t want to repaint their room due to the expense and inconvenience, can be easily changed into a masterpiece of design with an addition of a geometric rug and a few changes in drapes and furniture.

Why else would you choose a geometric rug? Consider the room you are decorating, many have open window schemes without drapes and want an overall feeling of light and airiness. There are rugs with designs such as trees and abstract shapes of nature that can add to your design of being well lit. Many new homes are opting for more windows and open floor plans. A rug well designed can even make a link between rooms.

There is a great movement between home reconstructions to take down walls, and in doing that the flooring may be two different things, such as tile vs. wood. If you place a geometric rug in between the focal point, there are no longer two separate rooms with two separate floorings, but a room with a nice flow and an expanse as looking as one room.
