When decorating your home or office, you have a cornucopia of choices with respect to color, theme, and style. You can create the vibe of your space using color theory. Choose the color blue for its calming properties. It helps relax customers and employees. The color ends subtle messages of sincerity, reliability, and responsibility. It also represents creativity, intelligence, loyalty, strength, and trust. For these reasons, blue is a popular choice for the decors of airlines, corporations, and hospitals.
You can encourage a peaceful, tranquil, orderly workplace or living space using the color blue. Carpets provide one of the easiest ways to work this color into any decor. You can decorate with carpets without needing to re-paint, wallpaper or undertake other costly and time-consuming tasks. Within minutes of purchase, you can place a blue rug in a room, altering its tone and increasing productivity.Materials
Rugs come in a variety of materials. While all might look good in the room you’re decorating, materials matter because they determine how well the rug will hold up to wear and tear.
For indoor rugs, choose a wool or cotton material. Most of these have a low pile that holds up well to high traffic and is easy to traverse in any shoes.
For outdoor carpets, choose a bamboo, nylon, polyester or polypropylene material. These usually receive a mold- and mildew-resistant treatment. Some also receive fade resistant treatment. Bamboo carpets work best in a covered area.Size Matters
You’ll find that blue rugs come in an assortment of sizes. Before shopping, measure each room and area you want to decorate. Each rug type comes in standard sizes, but you need precise measurements to choose the right rug for your space.
The pattern you choose goes a long way to contributing how well your rug suits your decor and your needs. A pattern can make or break the ambiance.
Use a blue rug with a small pattern to create a feeling of intimacy in a large room or to add quiet energy. A large pattern works well in any size room.
Combine different hues with other main or accent colors to evoke an aesthetic. A dark blue rug against a light blue rug can help carry out a theme. A pattern that incorporates green and neutral colors such as taupe creates a sense of tranquility.
A Persian or Tibetan design adds an opulent feel to a room. A modern art design evokes a sophisticated vibe. A solid navy blue rug with no pattern can deepen the ambiance in a room with patterned wallpaper without overwhelming you.Decor Suggestions
