CHOOSING THE RIGHT RUG

A rug is a floor covering of thick woven material or animal skin, typically not extending over the entire floor. It provides colour, ambience, and a stylish touch to the room. Rugs Offers Style and Comfort as Required. Rugs are a Practical and Attractive Option for Wooden Floors.

But the great question we’ve got an answer to is: HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE?

Rugs were in evidence long before the appearance of the wall-to-wall carpeting that has become so popular during the course of the last century. To get the rug right, you have to get the:

 

  • CORRECT SIZE OF YOUR LIVING/BEDROOM

Never compromise the size for the budget. A rug provides definition and if it is too small, it will look out of place instead of adding to the aesthetic appeal of the room. The rug for your living room which is the main visiting and conversation space should be large enough to ensure that the front part of the furniture can rest on it while the bedroom rug should be big enough to ensure that when you get out of bed, it will provide a warm underfoot surface for at least the length of the bed.

  •  CONSIDER THE ART OF LAYERING

The same principle used for table setting can also be applied to placement of rug in a room. Place a larger neutral coloured rug and put a smaller, patterned one on top to add to the effect and provide visual stimulation. If you want a large rug that can fill the room, choose one that will leave about 30cm between the rug and the wall and you might consider using two rugs for long or narrow spaces if your budget is limited.

  • CHOOSE THE RUG BEFORE DECORATING THE REST OF THE ROOM

Most people add rugs as an afterthought. Rather choose the rug that will form the centrepiece and then add the bedding, curtains, and pillows to complement it.

  • ALWAYS INVEST IN PADDING

If the rug does not have a pad underneath, it will move around and can even be a hazard. The pad keeps it in place, especially on smooth surfaces.

  • USE CONTRAST AND PATTERN TO CREATE INTEREST

Have you ever walked into a room full of variations of the same colour? It can look good, but it won’t take long before your eyes become tired. Create three-dimensional spaces by using contrast. Don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns to break up flat spaces.

  • TEXTURE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

You have the right colour but what about the texture? The texture is just as important as the colour. With many textures styles available, you are able to create a stunning effect. Don’t just go with the cut-and-loop style. Consider the furniture here; if you have a leather couch, it will look great on longer and softer pile.

  • PRACTICALLY

Though the aesthetic appeal is the first consideration, you also need to consider rugs’ practicality, if you have pets; a long-fibre type is not a good idea. The pet hair will be difficult to remove and dogs can be injured when their nails get stuck in the pile. Consider the cleaning procedure and whether you have the time or resources for it. Also, keep in mind that any raised surface can become a potential tripping risk.
