Soften up in style 4 SIMPLE STEPS TO CHOOSING THE PERFECT RUG Overwhelmed by rules and guidelines or feeling blank as a canvas? Choosing the right rug is not always easy. But letâ€™s look at our best ideas for finding a rug that can lift your room to the next level.
STYLE The most important factor to consider when choosing a rug is setting the starting point from your own personal style. You may not think about it, but you know your style better than anyone else, so go on and trust your instincts! Choosing a rug that you’ll love for ages and not depending on trends is a great way of enjoying your carpet not only today but also tomorrow. In the end, it all comes down to finding a rug that fits your personal style and your specific home and needs.
Put the functionality first and you will never be disappointed, but remember to step out of your comfort zone from time to time.
S O L I D O R PAT T E R N
When choosing a plain or patterned rug, first take a quick inventory of the interiors and existing color scheme in your room. If you already have a lot of color and pattern going on in your space, you’ll may want to tie the look of the room together with a single-colored rug or a patterned in neutral shades which complements your existing furnishings. But on the other hand, don’t play it too safe! An interesting pattern in bold colors or a rug in a stronger color tone can be the feature that makes your room pop and stand out! Why not add accessories such as a vase, artwork or a lamp in a color picked from the pattern? Adding a couple of cushions in complimentary colors will give your room a cosy and lived-in homely atmosphere.
Last but not least, the most important step to making a carpet work for you is the size. Most people buy rugs that are too small for their space. A golden rule to apply when it comes to interior design; don’t be afraid to go all in! When deciding on a rug for your livingroom, remember to make a statement! Choosing a carpet that is big enough to fit all furniture on it will tie your room together nicely. Front-legs only is a good and common compromise. This way, when sitting in an armchair or sofa your feet are on fabric and not floor, which makes the room feel well-planned and in harmony. When placing a rug that’s properly sized for a dining room, it will be large enough to pull the chairs back and have them still sitting on the rug. Starting by measuring the area where you’ll be placing your rug is great. This way you can select a minimum and maximum optimal size when going shopping for a rug. A trick to easily visualize how it will look is to tape the area to the size of the rug you’re considering. It shows in an instant how it works with your furniture.
TEXTURES When choosing the texture of your rug, think about where you’ll be using it. Is it going to add softness to your livingroom or will it be used under the dining table?
A room with a mix of different textures feels rich and layered so adding a soft and cosy rug to a stylish sleek livingroom can be a ”wow”-factor. Or why not put a thinner more minimalistic rug next to a sofa filled with fluffy cushions? Aiming for contrasts is a key.
