Area rugs are genuinely a great addition to hardwood flooring, but which ones pair best together? Today, we're going to look at how you can create the most stunning appearance, so follow along for all the details.
Area rugs can make a huge impression
You might think that pairing hardwood with the perfect rug is as simple as matching the colors, but contrast can create the visuals you're looking for in your flooring. For instance, if you have a rich, deep hardwood stain color, choosing a dark-colored area rug would cause both to blend blandly.
At the same time, hardwoods like hickory, oak, and cherry wood all have unique colors and grain patterns all their own, which necessitates caution when choosing the perfect rug. It’s certainly possible, but you want both to have equal eye-drawing abilities.
Generally speaking, you should pair light-colored rugs with dark-colored hardwoods so that both are easy to see and stunning with your chosen décor. Likewise, lighter hardwoods work better with dark or patterned rugs, as long as the pattern doesn’t drown out the graining of your wood flooring.
