CHICAGO — If your New Year’s resolution includes updating your home decor, a Chicago rug designer says it’s easier than ever to bypass costly renovations and make small changes to bring big impact to a home.

Tam Wimolvan Vidulich, founder of Tam Wimolvan Vidulich (TWV) Carpets, has created four unique area rug collections, including her most recent Chromatica collection, to please experienced or do-it-yourself designers alike. The versatile carpets offer a bold palette of colors and intricate designs inspired by the designer’s global travels. TWV Carpets are made with premium, sustainable and renewable 100% New Zealand wool.

“Redecorating can be challenging because there are so many options,” Vidulich says. “Before heading to your local home decor store to find a rug, I suggest homeowners take these five considerations to heart.”

Vidulich recommends:

1.Keep color in mind
When adding a carpet to a furnished room, Vidulich recommends taking your existing color scheme into account and choosing an accent color to play up. If you’re starting from scratch, she suggests selecting a color scheme and one piece of furniture to build around.

2.Materials matter
Vidulich recommends checking the material on any rug before buying. Natural fibers such as wool, sisal and bamboo are resilient and easy to maintain.

3.Size it up
To visualize the room with a rug, Vidulich says to create a template by combining recycled newspaper or fabric remnants on the floor in lieu of the rug to help you determine the shape and size you’ll need.

4.Be prepared
Vidulich recommends bringing fabric samples, paint chips or color swatches during your shopping trip.

5.Room to breathe
When choosing a rug for under a dining table, the rug should be approximately three feet beyond the edge of the table to allow for chair movement.
