4 Tips: How To Find Oushak Rugs For Designing Chic Rooms

Posted by Kate Watson on Jun 10, 2013 6:35:00 PM

When shopping for gray Oushak rugs make sure the rug has an artistic color palette with a balance of cool and warm colors. Avoid grey Oushak rugs in which all the colors are cool, as these rugs will be less flexible to decorate with.  Instead, look for grey Oushak rugs with hints of warm colors such as brown or gold to balance the cool grey colors. These Oushak rugs will make it easy to design stylish rooms and these rooms will feel inviting in both winter and summer. Artistically designed Oushak rugs will help you bring glamor and warmth to contemporary interiors and they will also make it easy to add a young vibe to traditional rooms. The reason these Oushak rugs work so well in both contemporary and traditional interiors is that they are a combination of ancient and modern elements- their patterns are traditional, yet their colors are modern. Their historical patterns bring depth and warmth to contemporary interiors and their modern colors give a young vibe to traditional rooms. Another big advantage of these Oushak rugs is that because their colors are well-balanced these rugs will work with a wide range of fabrics. This not only makes it easy to find fabrics that go with them, but it also makes it easy to change the décor in the future by just changing a few fabrics and wall color while keeping the same Oushak rug.  Decorating flexibility is a highly important quality to look for in an Oushak rug. Because, while you can change fabrics on an upholstered chair or sofa and re-paint the walls, there is nothing you can do if the rug will not work with your new decorating style. Therefore it is important to pick a grey Oushak rug that goes with many colors and many decorative styles. We will learn what to look for in grey Oushak rugs and learn how to create stunning rooms with them.
