A Rug will add excitement to a room, you might say a rug can complete a room by linking the other pieces in your room together. A rug will define a room, add warmth of course, and enhance the a room’s decor.
There are many ways to choose a right rug for the room, but we have chosen the top 6.
USE RUGS TO DEFINE AREAS
Use a rug to define your rooms. No matter living areas, dining areas, bedrooms or even hall ways, use rugs to define or separate areas. You can use different sizes of rugs or different styles, two rugs in a room can virtually divide the room into 2 separate spaces.
USE RUGS TO CREATE HARMONY
When you have multiple rugs in your home, it’s better that rugs complement each other in colours and styles.Rugs with busy designs in a room may take away sense of balance and harmony.
GET IDEAS FOR A COLOR SCHEME
It’s a good idea to buy a rug after you purchase your furniture. As rug colours play an important factor in your room, you only want the rug colour to accent or link with your existing colours.
CREATE A FOCAL POINT
As a rug will bring massive colour into your room, it will be a good idea to paint a contrast colour of your wall.
PLAY AROUND WITH SHAPES
99% rugs sold are in rectangle shape. However, a round or oval shape of rug may be worth a try, as long as it’s compliments your room and furniture.
MAKE SURE TO GET THE RIGHT SIZE
Rule of thumb, a 2.3x1.6m rug will fit a three-seater couch, a 2x1.4m will fit a two-seater couch. However, if you want to leave no space between your rug and your couch, you can let your couch sit on top of partial rugs, a 2x2.8 or 2.5x3.5m will be a great addition.
Also the same concepts will apply if you want to leave apart of your rug underneath of your bed. However, you should leave about 15 cm space between your rug and your wall.
