How to pick the right rug?
Choosing the right rug starts with picking the room it'll go into. Of course, if you've got an empty hallway, then picking a hallway runner is a no-brainer. For most other rooms, you're going to be deciding between a rectangular rug and a circle rug. That decision is largely down to the geometry of the room. Is it filled with curves and fluidity? Or are there more sharp edges and straight lines? You're most likely going to want to match this aesthetic.
From there, it's down to picking the texture of the rug. Are you after a fluffy rug, something with a thick soft pile like one of our shag rugs? Do you need a rug to fit under a door opening and should therefore look at our range of flatweave rugs that have a much thinner pile height than most rug ranges. Alternatively, you can think of what vibe are you trying to create within the room. Have you filled your space with lots of harsh natural textures, or have you gone for really soft silky surfaces? A rug can be used to set a tone of the 'feeling' of the room. A jute rug is great at adding a sense of grittiness to a space. On the other hand, cotton rugs can be quite softening to a room - creating a warmer more inviting space. Pick the material to reflect the mood in the room you're trying to set.
The next step is rather straightforward, but for some can be the most challenging aspect of choosing a rug. It's deciding what colour should I pick. Most commonly, stylists will decide - is this rug a central focus, or here to blend in? If it's there to blend in, then your best bet is to pick colours that already exist in the room. Generally this means going with a grey rug or a white rug - something quite neutral. Otherwise, if your goal is to pick a rug that will stand out and become a focal point in the room - the colour you pick will be quite daring, a green rug or perhaps even a pink rug. Don't let yourself get too hung up on the colour at this stage, it's a lot easier to pick 2-3 main colours that you think should work and worry about the specifics once you get a chance to see what rug designs and styles are on offer.
Finally, your last decision is to decide the style of the rug, and believe us - there's an abundance to choose from. For most people, the first thought that comes to mind is either a contemporary rug or a traditional rug. Both are great options, but by no means are they your only. Quite popular more recently are tribal rugs that are inspired by the traditional weaving techniques of indigenous tribes. For those looking for a more free-spirited style of rug, our Bohemian rugs offer plenty of colourful designs. Or, if perhaps you're after something with more nature, and full of flower designs - our gorgeous floral rugs are a wonderful choice. Be sure to pick a design that reflects the emotion of the room, and ties together all your existing furniture into a cohesive look.
The right size and shape
Different rug sizes create different moods within a room. Large rugs are one way of diving an open-plan living space into separate areas - breaking apart the room and allowing you to foster a different energy in each section. For more intimate room settings such as bedrooms or guest rooms, small round rugs can help to make an area feel more homely and intimate. When working with hallways or long passageways, runner rugs are great at widening what's normally quite a narrow space by elongating your field of view to the length of the rug as opposed to the width of the room. For those trying to make a room feel a little less conventional, you make consider a cowhide rug for its irregularity in shape - or perhaps an oval rug for its more curvy feel than a normal round rug.
