Basic Tips for All Your Spaces – The bigger, the better

We sure give a lot of importance when decorating the walls of the room but the floor is absolutely crucial to a room’s design, and the rugs acts as the anchor. It’s an accessory that grabs your attention foremost when you step into your space. So the size matters and makes all the difference. It shouldn’t be like you have tried to cover a certain portion of the floor. It should appear it is part of the floor. Opting for the larger option, especially if you’re between sizes, will prove it’s a good idea! And you really don’t have to be a designer of sort to help figure out the length! The calculation is quite simple – The rug should be proportional to the space (large rooms = large rugs) and placed to echo its dimensions (long room = orient lengthwise).

Basic Tips for picking the size – Know your size

Let’s get little technical here to pick a rug piece that fits the room. Depending on the size of the room, you can measure the perimeter of the floor that is six to 14 inches off the baseboard to achieve the perfect scale. That’s typically for a cosy room. If you are looking for a large room, you can go up to 12 to 14 inches. In a smaller room, it’s better to not leave floor area empty, unless you have a decorative floor. But do remember this, the standard width for a rug is 13 feet. If you have a larger space, you can customize according to your specifications.

Basic Tips for picking the Right Shape – A shape that defines the shape of your space

Don’t throw in the rug after you are done decorating your space. Balance both simultaneously. Also, just like the length of the rug, the shape is also an important parameter. It largely depends on the shape of the room and the way you want to place your furniture. Take for instance a big round rug in a square shape room will help in softening the edges. Whereas the round shape can add to the elegance of the space if placed rightly like placing it in the entrance. You can also have a round bedside rug. It can be more elegant when you step out of bed than the traditional under-the-bed rug. On the other hand, if you have a room that is big (the living room for instance), you can experiment with freeform rug, brightening and transforming each corner into something beautiful, comfy and theme based. A corner for each family member!
