When it comes to decorating your home, choosing a rug for your space can be a big decision. With so many options to think about, we’ve pulled together a few helpful tips and expert advice from our friends at Armadillo & Co to make sure you find the perfect rug to enhance your space.

FLOW OF THE ROOM

Once you’ve decided on where you would like to place your rug the next step to think about is the material and fibres that will be best suited to the space. If you would like to place the rug in a part of your home that has a large amount of foot traffic then you may select a more durable material, compared to your bedroom where you may like something softer and luxurious.

CONSIDER THE PLACEMENT

The placement of your rug will influence the size and colour you choose, so to help you make your decision with confidence we have included some simple placement guides below:

 

FINDING THE RIGHT SIZE

“Bigger is better! A small rug makes everything else look out of proportion. The rule of thumb is that the edges of a rug should just exceed the furniture under which it is placed and leave some of the floor showing.” – Sally Pottharst, co-founder of Armadillo & Co 

COLOUR PALETTE

Whether you’re wanting to make a statement with your rug or simply add some contrast to your room, the rug you choose will influence the size of your space. With lighter rugs making the space feel more open and darker rugs creating an intimate atmosphere.

EMBRACE PATTERN & TEXTURE

Introducing pattern and texture with a rug will anchor your space, however there is a few things to think about to perfect the look. If you’re choosing a statement rug then pull back on artwork and bold decorative pieces throughout the room to really let the rug shine. If you’re wanting to keep your space feeling light and airy, then choose a rug in a unifying colour theme to help it fit harmoniously into your space.

THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY

As your new rug will become a timeless investment into the design of your home we always recommend choosing one of the highest quality. We love Armadillo & Co’s collection as their products are infused with the rich history and artisanship of the hands who have created them. With every one of their luxury rugs being 100% handmade and crafted from carefully-sourced natural fibres or recycled materials.
