Your home is an extension of your personality and style. Even if you have staple pieces of furniture that you adore, your home can still lack your personality. Not ready to switch up your furniture, but want to freshen up your space? A really quick switch to new rugs and art pieces, can be an easy, cheap way to transform a room and still keep your current furniture. Decorum is here to help. As a premier furniture store in Norfolk, we have a plethora of experience in arts and rugs, so we can help you transform your home. 

Minimum Investment, Maximum Impact With Rugs and Art

High traffic areas such as a living room, dining room, or entryway are the best places to freshen up with a rug or art. These are places where your guests will enter or hang out in your home and they tend to be the place people spend the most time in. If you are looking to freshen up a space and tune into trends, a simple rug switch can transform your room. Similarly, low-traffic areas such as bedrooms can be transformed with a more impactful art piece or rug. 

There are a variety of different styles of rugs that you can choose for your home. Any type of rug or art piece you choose can transform a space without breaking the bank. This also allows you to freshen up your home without buying all new furniture pieces. 

Choosing a Rug Based on Your Needs

You can choose a rug that suits your tastes based on shape, fiber, color, or pile height. There are many types of rugs that you can choose from, dense, low-pile rugs tend to be popular with families and pet owners. This is because these rugs are easy to clean and make a great statement in high-traffic areas of your home. Similarly, high-pile rugs such as shags or friezes tend to be more suitable for low-traffic areas like bedrooms. 

In addition to the pile height, you should also consider the shape of your rug. Most rugs come in standard sizes such as 5×8, 6×9, 8×10, 9×12; however, you can always custom-order a rug to fit your space and style. So, do you want a standard-size rug? A custom size? Circular? A simple shape can brighten a room without taking too much attention away from your other furniture pieces. In contrast, a brightly colored, oddly shaped rug can be the statement piece your room needs. 

In addition to pile height, color, and shape, the fiber your rug is made from should be considered. Wool rugs definitely make a statement, but they also are not easy to clean and can be shed. This also applies to shag and frieze rugs. That is why many people place them in low-traffic areas where they don’t need to be cleaned as often. Synthetic rugs are easier to clean and if you find a cool pattern they can really transform a space. 

Choosing Art to Transform a Space

Art can take many forms in your home. It can be a meticulously placed vase, a large wall-hanging, a framed picture, or even standing pieces. Vases are great for people looking to freshen up a dining room or entryway. They aren’t great for high-traffic areas, as they can get in the way and have to be moved. Wall art such as tapestries, wall-hangings, and pictures should be sprinkled throughout your home. Each room should have some sort of wall art, but make sure you stick to a single style in each room. 

Standing art pieces make great statement pieces and talking points. They may not be a great option for people with children or pets if they can easily be knocked down. However, if you place a standing art piece in the corner of a room, this is a great way to make a statement without taking up too much space.
