Rugs change your home. They can bring out the best in your furniture, or act as a colorful exclamation mark on their own. They warm your feet, they help you keep a clean house, they even dampen the sound. Decorating with rugs is an easy way to make your home more personal and pleasant. Different rugs have different advantages and are suitable in different rooms. In some rooms, for example, rugs must be hard-wearing and easy to keep clean, while in other rooms, it’s more important that they’re soft, warm and cozy. A rug on the floor puts a natural frame around each piece of furniture or furniture group.
One way to choose a rug is to look for one that goes well with your sofa. The advantage of large rug (7’x10’), that has room for whole seating group, is that it gives a well-composed and cozy impression. Another possibility is a medium-size rug (6’x8’), on top of which you can put the front edge of the sofa and armchairs. If you prefer a smaller rug (5’x7’) instead, sofa can stand outside the rug and you don’t have to think about imprints from the sofa legs on the rug. For a dinning area choose a rug that is big enough for the chairs, even when they pushed out from the table. For a dinning table with four chairs, the rug should be 6’x8’. For table with six to eight chairs, the rug should be at least 7’x10’.
When you get out of bed in the morning it’s nice feeing to put your feet down on soft, warm pile rug. Go for neutral color with modest patterns to create calm atmosphere in the bedroom. In a child’s room, flat woven cotton rugs are a good choice, since they both easy to clean and hard wearing. Why not choose a pattern for the rug that sparks their imagination! Bathroom rugs have to meet special demands, especially when it comes to hygiene. Cotton rugs are a good alternative – they’re easy to keep clean and you can wash them in an ordinary machine.
Rugs in the entrance and hallways feel welcoming, they also help you to keep your home clean. Entrance/hallway rugs should be durable, easy to keep clean and moisture resistant. Rugs that are attractive and practical make entrance area even look nicer.
We have many rugs in different styles, sizes and materials, so all you have to do is let your imagination and creativity roam free. Most important, of course, is that you choose rugs that fit your personality and taste.
