Black and white rugs can help determine the design theme of a room, making an area cozy and inviting, or modern and sophisticated. Light or neutral colored carpets are a common choice for most homes; it allows a room’s decor scheme to include a number of colors, if desired. If your home has black and white carpeting, can decorate the space can be challenging, but there are few decorative accents you can add to the room to make it impressive.

Hang curtains in the room to contrast with the black and white rugs. If you use black and white as your color scheme, white curtains are an additional option, as are white curtains with black stripes. Other colors that will complement the black and white rug include tan or silver.
Place on a sofa in the room in the same color family as the curtains. A white sofa looks striking in a room with black and white rugs; a gray sofa will complement a black-carpeted room with silver curtains. Put a chair in the corner that fits the color scheme. If you get stuck with a black and white theme, a gray chair serves as a focal piece. Place an area rug in the middle of the room for a break in the texture of the black and white rugs and to further emphasize the other colors in the room. Place a small table on top of the area rug. Add a centerpiece in the table that matches the table size and introduces more color to the room.
