When people think of accent rugs they usually only think about how we use them in our bathrooms and kitchens to make sure that no one slips on the water that falls down. It is true that many of them do serve this practical purpose – but they can be used in so many other rooms and help to decorate it the way we want to.

In fact using accent rugs to decorate a room in your home is one of the most versatile and inexpensive thing you can do. With just a simple rug you can turn your room from boring and lifeless to colorful and unique. Some will use accent area rugs as a focal point in their room or to accentuate an important piece of furniture that is being used.

Not only do they look great with their unusual colors and shapes – but they also can be used on wood, tile, stone, and concrete floors to protect them from scuff marks and scratches or to keep our feet warm while walking over them. There are a dozen companies that sell accent rugs – which can be anywhere from $10 to $2,000. The price varies depending on the technique that was used to produce it and the materials used to make it.

There is a great misconception that these types of rugs can only be used in bathrooms and kitchens – but they also work great in the hallway, patio, bedroom, living room, and bedroom. What makes them so great is that they come in a variety of colors that range from bright to very neutral. You can even be unique and change out your accent rugs with each passing season.

Accent rugs can be used on wood floors to help give your room some color and to protect the look of them. But that doesn’t mean that if you have carpeted floors you can’t use them. They can still help to add colors and life to the whole room.

One Response to “Add Life To Your House With Accent Rugs”

  1. If they weren’t so darn expensive! You really do get what you pay for when it comes to rugs, and larger ones for the living room (for example) that are big enough are several hundred or even a thousand dollars. I do agree though, they do add life to your home.
