Tips On Choosing Purple Area Rugs

When you talk about home decorating and choosing a floor rug, purple is certainly not one of the first colors that come to mind. The exception is of course if your favorite color is purple.  So why should you think about using purple or buying a purple rug in your home?

Purple is a mixture of blue and red, which makes it a great color to have in the home. It signifies royalty, wealth, leadership and luxury. Did you know that light purple can also evoke feelings of nostalgia and romance? Now isn’t that a great color especially for your bedroom?

If you are still apprehensive about using this color, start with something small, like an accent rug in your bathroom, or a medium sized area rug for your living room. Then as you get more confident, you can graduate to large floor rugs for other areas of the home. So how do you go about picking purple area rugs for the home?

First take a look at your room. What shades that are present can be complemented with purple? And remember, purple is not only available in one boring dinosaur shade. You can find frosty plum, plum, eggplant, mauve, violet, hydrangea, dark purple, dark plum, iris, lilac, periwinkle, amethyst, hyacinth, orchid, dahlia, and dewberry. Now can you imagine using such shades in the home? With all these choices you will surely find one that you love and that can complement the rest of your décor.

Once you find the best shade, you can go on to get the best type of material that most suits that area. Pick from natural fibers of synthetic materials, depending on the area you have in mind. And finally get the area rug in the right size to fit your area or room. And that’s all there is to it. Isn’t that easy?

Purple area rugs can be used anywhere in the home. You will be able to add color and character with these rugs and your home will look fantastic.
