Patterns play a big role in home decor and rugs are the perfect item to experiment with. Both of the rugs in this living room example have bold patterns, but in different styles. Each of these rugs have the ability to be focal points in the room and each could instantly change the entire look of the room. Pay attention to the pattern and style of rugs and let your creative juices flow. TIP: Don't be afraid to try different styles of rugs for a bold look!

In this dining room example, you will see that rugs can create a formal look and others can create a casual look. The rug in option 1 has a geometric pattern with simple, light colors that create an overall casual look for the room. Option 2 has an abstract pattern with bolder and darker colors that create a more dramatic and formal look for the room. TIP: Know the type of look you want for the room to help narrow down your options!

Rug patterns are available in many sizes which play another huge role in the overall look of a room. Rugs with large-scale patterns will provide more a focal point in a room versus a small-scale pattern. Try pairing these rugs with solids and small-scale patterned furniture and accessories to allow the rug to naturally become the focal point in the room. Or if an existing item in your room already has a large-scale pattern, then use either a small or medium-scale patterned rug to avoid the competing of patterns. TIP: All of the patterns in a room should have a variety of different sizes!

We hope you learned how impactful and powerful rugs can be through these examples and tips. Now, get ready to give your home a major makeover by simply updating the rug.
