There are so many ways for us to decorate our home and make it more comfortable and welcoming. We can use furniture items, wallpaper, and soft furnishings to make our abodes cozier. Among these many ways, floor rugs are a popular choice. Rugs rank high as they are easily available, very versatile and can be found in any imaginable style, pattern and design.
Since rugs also come in many types, from large rugs to runner rugs, and shag rugs to outdoor rugs, picking one for the home can be quite the challenge. However one type of rug that never fails to impress is the area rug. And if there is one color that you should definitely have for an area rug in your home, it is the purple area rug.
Purple area rugs are more common than you think. They come in many shades of purple from the very lightest of shades like soft lilac to the darkest shade like dark eggplant. So you probably would have already seen or maybe even used a purple area rug in your home without realizing it. If you have yet to try out this color in your house decorating, how about trying out the following ideas.
In a large area like your dining or living room, a large purple area rug would be best. It creates a stunning display for your family and friends. You can find wool or cotton rugs in shades that can easily go with the rest of your furniture. Pick different shapes like round or oval if you want something other than the usual rectangular rugs. The area will definitely look more visually interesting.
For your bedroom, you can try out something more luxurious in the form of a silk rug. An oriental Persian rug will look exquisite in soft shades of purple. This will definitely evoke romantic feelings in the bedroom. If you want something for your children’s bedrooms, look no further than a playful shaggy rug. Shags can be found in soft purple and in darker more striking shades. Or you can try out other designs like lines, abstract motifs and maybe even soft polka dots.
Other places where you can place these area rugs in purple are in the kitchen, or in the bathroom. And let’s not forget the bathroom. A large periwinkle bathroom rug will look great in a white bathroom. As you can see using purple area rugs in the home is not that far fetched an idea. They are actually very beautiful if you can find a rug that matches with the rest of your home.
