Do solid color rugs have borders?
Some solid-colored rugs have borders, and some don't; it all depends on the style of the rug. For instance, a shag rug has less significant borders than a Korvair or Target rug.
Are colorful rugs too expensive?
The good news is that rugs from Bassett Furniture never make you choose between a fair price or quality! However, it is possible to overpay for a rug, depending on the brand. If you opt for a cheap rug, you may find that it will fray and age fast, especially in a high-traffic area such as an entryway of your home.
How do I choose a rug color to best match my space?
Look around the room you want to put a rug in. You may notice a color or pattern already prominent in the space. When it comes time to pick a rug, you might want to pick one that goes along with the existing color palette or pattern in that room. You can stray a little from the color pattern if you want your rug to catch the eye of visitors, but sticking to a particular style tends to make a room visually pleasing.
Should my rug be darker or lighter in color than my sofa?
Our design experts say a rug can be darker or lighter than your sofa; it is all based on your personal design preferences. The contrast between your rug and sofa helps draw attention to the room's focal points. If the floor or carpet that is going to be under the rug already matches the sofa, it is in your best interest to select a rug color that will separate the two.
Should my throw pillows match my rug?
While your throw pillows do not have to match your rug color, coordinating the two is a good idea. You can coordinate your throw pillows and rugs by contrasting colors, matching color schemes, or matching themes and patterns.
