Make the most out of your Rug
If you’re looking for something to refresh your room this winter, a good idea will be investing some money in a rug. It will not only change the ambience of the space but can totally upgrade the look of your room as well. There are many ways to decorate a space with rugs and we’ve selected the most important ones for you below:
1.Make the room cosier and warmer
Have you ever wondered why in most hotel rooms there is a carpet on the floor? The reason is simple: a rug in a room will always make the space feeling warmer and more welcoming. It can also influence the acoustics in the room and eliminate echo. You can choose from flat woven or shaggy rugs, depending on the ambience you want to create. For a huge variety of carpets visit Restoration Hardware carpet collection.
This is especially useful in large open spaces or studio apartments. A rug will help you to define areas and separate them from one another without obstacles. It’s an easy way to divide for example a lounge area from dining.
3. Bring your room to life
By choosing a rug with some colour or pattern, you add a character to the space. If your furniture is in neutral tones, add a contrasting rug and small decoration in your favourite accent colour (cushions, throws, etc) – it will upgrade the look and feel of your room immediately! The great thing about it is that you can easily change the décor and the rug for another colour or pattern and transform your space again! Our favourite when it comes to colours and patterns is definitely Christian Lacroix carpet collection – you can take a look at it here.
4. Create a focal point
Sometimes a rug is necessary to tie together all the pieces of furniture and make a complete look of a room. In your lounge place a rug under your sofa, occasional chairs and coffee table to define the space as a relaxing area. In your bedroom add a rug under the bed and side tables to make this space a focal point of the room.
5. Keep the balance in your space
Rugs can help you to create harmony in your space. When using more than one rug in a room, remember that they don’t need to be the same, but they should complement each other. To keep the balance in your room try to place one rug in a bright colour/pattern while keeping the other one neutral and simple. Check out Colbourns for custom made carpets!
