RUGS IN INTERIOR DESIGN
Rugs are a great way to define an area clearly. They can zonally divide open spaces; this is perfect for people with studio apartments. Remember to use liners when you use a rug. This will ensure the rug does not slip or creep. There are different liners to suit the different floor types. This will ensure that the maximum grip is used, reducing the risk of hazards caused by the rug sliding underfoot. This will also protect the flooring underneath.
Using two rugs within a room will visually divide the room into two separate areas. Each rug will provide a different sense of variety to the space. However, it is better to use two rugs that complement each other in terms of colour and style to ensure that the space does not feel abrupt, or aesthetically unpleasant.
Choosing a rug can help inform the colour scheme for the rest of the space. Once you have your rug you can select relevant furniture that will be complimentary to this piece. Not considering how furniture can complement your rug can mean that your interior will feel busy, or overpowering.
Aesthetically a rug will either juristically increase the atmosphere within a room, or mellow it out. This can be the focal point of a room. Every room should have a focal point, so if the interior is currently minimal, not making any sort of statement, blending into a background, then the right rug within your interior will bring the room to life.
The beauty of a rug is that it does not necessarily have to go on the floor where it will wear down and other furniture can cover it and wear it down. You can suspend a rug against a wall to create a feature wall or transform it into more of an art piece.
Rugs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, textures, and colours. When you are selecting a rug, think about how the rug is going be used and the arrangement of the rest of the furniture. Size of the rug is easy to get aesthetically wrong. For example, when you use a rug in a dining room, we recommend that you leave at least 24inches from the edge of the rug to the edge of the table on all sides. This will ensure that even when the dining room is in use, the legs of the chair remain on the rug when someone has pulled it out to sit down. For a runner, you should ensure that the rug is 4 inches narrower than your hallway and 18-24 inches shorter. You should always make sure that the rug is wide enough to accommodate both feet when it is in use.
You can change the rug and pillows within your room according to changing seasons and trends; this is a great way to ensure your space feels modern without having to invest in a completely new remodel.
