4 Reasons To Incorporate Rugs Into Your Home’s Décor
Rugs are a vital part of creating a stunning home interior. Just as a pair of shoes complete a great outfit, rugs complement the décor and furniture in your home. They can be a game-changer in the way a space looks and feels. Rugs can either sit harmoniously to complement the other décor in your room, or they can add an element of surprise and make a bold statement.
Regardless of whether you want your rug to act as a complementary piece or the centrepiece of your room, there are numerous reasons why you shouldn’t hesitate to make a purchase from your local rug shop. Here are 4 reasons why you should incorporate rugs into your home’s décor.
1. Visual aids to pathways
Corridors and hallways tend to appear as dead, unwelcoming spaces. To fix that, there’s no better way to liven these spaces up than with a brightly coloured rug! Just as fashion runways and VIP events wouldn’t be complete without a red carpet, your home won’t look the same without the visual impact of a rug. Rugs have the ability to create visual pathways that draws your eye to any connecting rooms – so have fun by introducing colours and patterns into your space with your choice of rug!
At the same time, you may want to consider how your scheme flows into its connecting spaces. A long hall runner is a fantastic way to add a cohesive feel to your hallways. A pop of colour also adds character and warmth to your hallways, so they don’t feel like dead space.
2. Distinguish zones in open spaces
Rugs on hallways help to link connecting rooms. But in an open-plan space, the graphic quality of floorcloths helps to create a visual separation between spaces. This creates a distinction from one space to another. This is a great asset, especially in limited spaces where visual zoning is a critical element. As your eyes shift from an area with a rug to an area without one, you’ll be able to tell the different zones and functions in an open space. Additionally, rugs are also useful in anchoring your furniture and absorbing sound – a necessity in open spaces.
3. Create a centrepiece
Rugs on their own can be magnificent pieces of artwork. If you come across one that feels too good to step on at times, you can consider hanging it on the wall rather than placing it on the floor. In this case, a rug can not only act as a decorative element but also as a barrier that helps to absorb sounds between adjoining rooms. Before you settle on a rug, consider its design elements such as colour, patterns, shape and material. A designer rug can effectively reinforce that cohesive look and feel in your room.
4. Express character and personality
Whether you’re going for a boho vibe or vintage feel, rugs can highlight the style of a room instantly. If you’d like to introduce a pop of colour and pattern into your space, there’s no better way to do so than with a rug. For one, it’s easier to live with as compared to painting your walls. Placing a large, patterned piece on the floor makes it appear less invasive. Rugs are a fantastic way to spice up the look of dull spaces and adds a sense of personality and character to your space.
For the reasons above, rugs have become a staple in interior design. There are many variations in the size, shape, and design of rugs that you can explore for your home – so you’ll never run out of options for your home!
