Find the best rug for your home office

Furnishing a home office requires a balance of comfort and style. Since you'll be spending many hours in this room, you want to make it cozy and inviting. However, you don't want to overload your senses with visual stimuli, since your focus should be on your work and not the decor. A well chosen rug will set the atmosphere. It should be eye-catching, but not distracting. If you have the space, think about also investing in an indoor fireplace to help provide an inspirational spark. It will provide the perfect location to place your new rug, creating a warm and trendy room.

Look at solid colors

Monochromatic rugs that only have one color and texture can be boring. However, if you can find the right hue that complements the rest of your home office, it could be a subtle but great addition to the room. Choosing a single color will be difficult, so make sure you also consider the texture. Natural fibers offer a unique pattern and texture and shag rugs are comfortable and can help set a cozier atmosphere. Alternatively, look at two-tone rugs to break up the monotony of a single color while limiting the variation.

Consider patterns

A printed patterned or contrasting toned rug will definitely make your home office more stylish. These open up a whole world of possibilities. You can go with traditional, modern asymmetrical designs, uniform patterns and much more. If you opt for a stricter, more geometrical look, balance it out with some organic fixtures. On the other hand, if you're choosing an organic flow for your rug, complement it with some rigid lines using art or accent pieces.

Whatever style you choose for your home office rug, make sure it's not overly distracting and make sure it doesn't own the room. There should be a flow that balances geometric and organic shapes, providing an inspirational atmosphere for your thoughts.
