There is a very popular phrase known to mankind: “Home Sweet Home”. Who doesn’t want their home to look good and happening. One that should be the apple of the eyes, a visual feast for not only the owner but for guests and outsiders as well, where with just one glance, they too envisage themselves of buying or living in a similar structured building for the rest of their lives.
Having a good house (not necessarily the best house) is the dream of any individual who is either a potential day dreamer or a particularly well-off person. In current times, its impossible to think of surviving without a roof on top of your head or any kind of shelter where you are fighting out for yourself in this cold, cruel, merciless world where there are only competitors and backstabbers awaiting you from all corners and its not quite easy, especially for the timid and the faint hearted and a man with no goals, no ambitions or anything to decide on the future, to survive here, let alone having your own house.
Unfortunately, not everyone in this competitive scenario these days can even dream about having a small house, let alone think, plan and move ahead with buying their ‘dream house’, what with cut throat competition, ever-growing and over-burdening population, lack of proper jobs in the market, a rotten, corrupt education system and government and many other aspects.
But that is a topic and discussion for another day because today its about houses. What makes a house ‘home’ is the question that has sparked innumerable discussions and arguments coming from different perspectives and opinions from different minds.
In my own opinion, what makes an individual (s) his /her house generate a ‘feel like home’ kind of feeling is not only a loving, happy family and friends, which is the most important aspect mind you, but also how it looks from the inside, not only from the outside, and this very significant point sometimes gets neglected by the average person out to buy a house.
Along with the interior design and decorations, colour, size, shape etc. what makes a house tick as a visual treat, floor and ceiling aside, are the appliances like television, fridge, kitchen, washrooms, and last but definitely not the least: furnitures and sofas.
Furnitures and sofas are designed for a person to sit down to rest or to simply enjoy leisure time allotted from a very busy and hectic schedule. However, these very items are used more as antique pieces of attraction and flaunting in front of guests and relatives, especially the rich and elite class of the page 3 society.
While this point may garner attention but does not necessarily earn respect and dignity in most cases. In fact, more often than not, this kind of behaviour will only allow friends and relatives to keep their distance and you will be made out a snobbish, rude and unpopular person.
However, coming back to the topic, the house to look beautiful from the inside, requires skills from the artisans and interior designers in order to be acceptable to the owners. One important item in this regard (apart from sofas and furnitures) are carpet rugs. Carpets make the floor look more attractive with their exquisite fibre, cloth and colours that are very easy on the eyes and gives a feeling of serenity and completeness to, say perhaps, an unfinished piece of important work. These can be considered the finishing touches of a newly- made painting or statue that make them look important and dignified, along with its makers.
To choose the very best colour and design is in itself a hectic task so here we will be talking about the best area rugs that are available that can provide the required finishing touches of a newly-ready house.
The area rugs act as tools of artwork where they cover up the floor and change the outlook of onlookers, making it a unique combination of traditional and modern with a contemporary feel of old and new, orthodox and conservative.
Given below are certain points regarding the considerations to be kept in mind while choosing a good area rug:
There are innumerable options when it comes to style that depend on the room and lighting of the house in question that play an important role for the style to match and gel seamlessly with the walls and the surroundings to give it a natural feel. While deciding the style, you need to have enough information the atmosphere you would like to have for the room because the rug does not necessarily match with the decorations but has to match the textures of the furnished inside structure.
Colour is the process where it all begins while choosing a good area rug. While its true that your own opinion does come into consideration on what colour to choose as it entirely depends on your perspective, it is far more important that it should be compatible with the inside decorations of the room as it sets the tone for the entire area.
Here it has to be kept in mind that rooms containing different colours and patterns more often than not match best with the rug of a single colour. If furnishings are not available, it needs to be seen how different colours of rug will match with that of the floor, wall and roof of the ceiling.
Choosing a good colour of rug is only half of the problem. The other half, more important and more difficult to choose at the same time, is the pattern. With similar reasons while choosing the colour part, the pattern too has to be compatible so as to gel with the ones of the rooms and surroundings. The walls and furniture are generally of colours that are very thick and solid, therefore a rug with designer patterns will make it look very beautiful and exquisite and similarly having a patterned furniture will allow the rug to have a soothing effect. In order for the rug to be eye-catching it has to be very subtle and delicate because the patterns and colours are concordant with each other.
