Selecting an Area Rug for My Living Room

Last time I purchased a home, I really didn’t do a lot to decorate it. It never really felt like home because we ended up moving so quickly, and I didn’t get to personalize it. We just purchased a new home, and this time around I’m going all out with decorating. I want to feel like I’m at home, and I want my guests to feel like they’re at home when they visit. I think that carpeting and rugs are very important, so next weekend I’m going to find rugs for sale that really add a touch of flair to my home.

I don’t want to be too flashy, but color is really important when decorating. Having the right color accents really helps to tie everything together. The rugs I find must be durable, but I want them to be comfortable to walk on as well. When I take my shoes off and curl up on the couch, I want to be able to look at the rug under the coffee table and know that when I step down, it will feel like walking on something soft and cool.

I’m very confident that I’ll be able to find I’m looking for next weekend, as I’ve done a bit of research over the last few days. I’ve narrowed down my options to include only the colors that I’m really passionate about. I have my color scheme selected for my living room, so that’s where I’ll start. I’ll be happy if I can come home with just one new rug. Anything beyond that is a bonus, and will make me feel like the shopping trip was even more productive. Maybe I’ll even come home with some furniture or accessories that will help tie all of the elements together. I know that I’m primarily shopping for things to go on the floor, bit I’m open to discovering other pieces of furniture as well.
