THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO STYLING RUGS IN YOUR HOME
A rug is the ultimate styling tool to make a statement and define any room in your home. With this essential guide you will be able to transform your space with the perfect rug that will enhance the atmosphere and add a touch of luxury to any room.
It’s important to think about the room you would like to place your rug in and the layout of your furniture. This will help you decide on the most suitable size and shape to ensure the design flows well with the room. When considering the size of your rug it’s best to be generous and if you’re still unsure simply zone the space with masking tape to get more of a feel for how the rug will appear in your space. Take a look at the below rug placement guide by our friends at Armadillo & Co to gain an understanding into the most suitable rug for each room in your home:
The next step to think about is if your rug will be located in a busy thoroughfare where you will need a durable material or if it will be in the bedroom where you may like a material which is softer underfoot. What’s equally as important as the material is the colour and style of rug that will best suit your space. Take into consideration the colour palette of the room from the furniture to the wall colour, as this will ensure you select the perfect design for your space.
Tread lightly by choosing a rug which is produced sustainably and ethically. The Armadillo & Co collection which is available in our Totem Road Paddington store, is created with materials and processes that leave as little impact on the planet as possible, while using a ‘reuse, reduce and recycle’ philosophy. The materials that go into weaving each rug are carefully sourced and include all natural, recycled and sustainable fibres.
