Distressed Area Rug - Add Some Old World Charm and Warmth to Your Floor
If you are decorating your own space or a rented space, you don't have to spend thousands on the flooring. Sure it would be nice if you could add some old oak plank flooring to accent your industrial or rustic styling, but this is not always practical. But what you can do is add some rugs.
You could add a distressed area rug that looks old and worn and yet is perfectly in good shape but simply accents your old world style pieces and industrial floor lamps or whatever style you choose. An area rug doesn't have to be large to really make an impact on a room. It could be just in front of the couch or your favourite chair and not only look super cool but keep your feet warm too. Just make sure to use some non slip lining under them if you are placing them on tile, hardwood or any shiny surface, to stop them from moving around, or pin them down with the coffee table etc. You don't want to be tripping.
As I check online I found some really cool ideas for industrial style area rugs to compliment your pieces. Some are more affordable than others and it all depends if you want a splash of color or simply a distressed old look. Check these out below and see if you get inspired to decorate your space. I have not seen rugs like these in my local Home Depot!
I really quite like this one if you want something subdued. You can get it in many sizes, including a room size of 9 x 12 feet which would definitely have an impact on a room, and if you are renting this will not damage the floor and can come with you.
Industrial, vintage or old world, doesn't always have to have a metal or brick look it can also be old wood. I love the colours in this rug. This one is sold in different sizes but 3.3 feet wide, so would be great in front of a couch as pictured or maybe as a hall runner, either way it will add some turquoise colour to your room and will be noticed. If you want a splash of color with your rustic theme this will make a statement.
I thought this abstract design with the oranges, blues and reds would add some colour to any type of decor, but would look awesome in a rustic industrial design as seen in the picture up against an interior brick wall. You can create the brick wall yourself with removable faux bricks (this is important if you are renting and need to put the place back to normal when you move out!).
You can get this rug in different sizes and shapes and all the way up to a 10 x 16 footer which would cover a large area. If you want the warmth of a rug under your feet but want it to match your own special decor, this would add some pizzazz if you find your room to be a bit dull or bland.
You can take a plain room and decorate it from top to bottom in industrial, rustic or old world design using industrial floor lamps, or table lamps, or light fixture if you own your space. Even if you rent you can get creative with portable rustic ideas, such as table lamps, artwork, faux brick walls, and distressed area rugs.
I was quite excited to find these online with Amazon, as my local decorating and lighting store simply did not cater to this look. Adding the area rug is a way to complete your look without replacing flooring. Sure it would be nice to have wide plank old world floors, but this is not always possible. But with all the products you can find online now, you can minimize the things you don't want to show by adding pieces such as the distressed, vintage and old styling floor rugs. Depending on your budget many come in room sizes to cover any floor.
So if you want to update your room to match your personality, don't automatically think renovation, it can be done if you get creative with pieces and before you know it, this room will be your soft place to land at the end of a long day!
