TIP 2: THE RIGHT COLORS 

In order to chose the best colour tone that will integrate your rug harmoniously with the colour of each other pieces of the room, you will need to take into account the energy that these colours can bring into your space and how you would like them to influence you. Be sure to choose the quality of energy that works best for you and your family. 

 

Start by considering who uses a room most often:

TIP 3: MATERIAL

How much traffic and use does the room get? 

Hallways with high foot traffic need durable flooring, while bedrooms and dining room rugs are less susceptible to heavy wear.

 

Natural

Overdyed + Distressed Rugs

TIP 4: THE PATTERNS

What color is your furniture? If your bed's got a lot going on, try a solid color or neutral rug to bring things down to earth—or make a basic sofa pop with a patterned rug.

Versatil neutrals
