Shopping For Better Shoes

When it comes to shoe shopping, I have always been one of those people that goes crazy in the stores. I absolutely love finding a great shoe that will work for my style, and when the price is right, I just have to invest. About three months ago or so, I realized that there were some issues with my current shoe selection, and it really paid off. I started looking for higher quality shoes, and before I knew it, I had a few pairs of great shoes that I really loved having. This blog is all about choosing higher quality shoes and being able to wear them for as long as possible.

How To Decorate With Area Rugs

Shopping Blog

One way to add visual interest to any room in your home is with area rugs. If you have tile or wood flooring, area rugs are also a convenient way to add softness and a decorative touch to the space. 

Area rugs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns, making them easy to decorate with and around. When it comes to picking out the perfect rug for a space, first consider the size, and then pick a color or design that coordinates with the rest of the room. 

The good news is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to make a big impact with area rugs. Even if you're on a tight redecorating budget, you can find a rug that will fit your needs, either online or at your favorite home goods retailer.

Here are some ideas for enhancing any room or space in your home with area rugs: 

1. Doorways and Hallways 

Area rugs placed just inside a doorway serve two purposes. First, they will act as a catch-all for dirt, dust, debris, and any other unsavory items that are found on the bottoms of shoes so that they don't get tracked around your home.

Also, a decorative rug will welcome your friends and family members into your home, so choose one that shows off your personalized decor style. For instance, if you prefer a modern design, go with a sleek gray or black rug. To add a pop of color to a neutral-hued space, pick a red, a yellow, a green, or another brightly colored area rug. 

In high-traffic areas, such as hallways, long, runner-style rugs can add both comfort and safety, as they prevent slips and falls. The rugs may also protect the flooring, such as hardwood or ceramic tile, from everyday wear and tear. Be sure to put a non-slipping rubber mat under the rug if necessary. 

2. Living Rooms

The right area rug can become the focal point of a living room. Use the rug to bring the overall look of the space together or to add accent colors or designs. For instance, a zebra-patterned rug will liven up an otherwise subdued room, while a coral- or turquoise-colored area rug will complement a living room with an island-inspired decor theme. A fluffy, white faux fur rug will add instant glamour, while a bamboo rug will lend a rustic, eco-friendly touch. 

Place a large area rug in the center of the living room under a coffee table, and arrange any couches, love seats, or chairs around it for a balanced look. You can also put a smaller rung under a chair in a reading nook to create a warm, cozy vibe.
