Do you want to change your rug as you just altered your room's colour scheme, or because it is too old fashioned and worn out? Now you are thinking of throwing away that rug? Don't! We can show you how to reuse that rug and create something fabulous with these awesome ideas.
Here are seven easy and brilliant ways to step up your rug game!
Play with the Colours
Bring out your paint brushes and fill your outdated rug with the vibrant colours to give it a chic look. It is not hard at all even if you are not good at painting. You can take help from painters tape or stencils and create whatever pattern you like. Just put the stencil on the rug and fill it up with the fabric paint. Alternatively, you can also dye it.
If you love crafting, this is your best option. Draw a cool pattern on the back of your rug and cut out those areas using a precision cutting tool. If doing the whole rug intimidates you, do it to the rug border only. Cut out a shape in the centre of the rug. Sprinkle glitter or sequins on top of your rug to add to the oomph factor.
Make it a Piece of Art
If your rug is in good condition and has an impressive design, convert it into an art piece and hang it on the wall. It can be a dazzling addition to your plain wall. You can either frame it or hang it from a rod. In this way, you won’t have to waste your rug and save you from buying an expensive wall hanging. This method has been around for a long time.
You can transform your bed, chairs, and ottoman with this trick. All you need to do is switch the fabric with the rug. Jazz up your living area with a re-upholstered sofa or spice up your dining room with newly dressed chairs. Adding a piece of funky rug in the plain bed headboard will instantly change up the whole look. Got an old ottoman? Cover it up with the rug and let it be the focal point of your room.
Small rugs with tassels and eye-catching patterns are ideal for this tip. Fold your rug around the pillow. Close the sides by either sewing them or using the fabric glue. These stylish pillows can make quite a statement in any room.
Warm up your Staircase
There is a solution for those cold and hard stairs where you have to climb up and down all day. Soften them up with a runner. Choosing a vibrant colour and pattern will add a trendy vibe.
Dress up your Furniture
This is easiest of all the ideas and ANYONE can do it!
Place your rug above the sofa to enhance the look. Cover your bed with a big soft rug to liven it up. Or throw a shaggy rug over your sitting stool and use it as a seat cushion.
