Adding a rug to your room can add coziness, a different look and feel and help you solve your problem without breaking the bank.

Here are some ideas on revamping your home with rugs:

In general, rugs are meant to be used as floor decor, but according to a new trend, rugs are being used as wall art now too. By using a rug as a wall hanging piece, it helps you create a central point. Using semi geometric pattern rugs as wall art can be a good idea.
