Understanding the Shape

"The shape and size of your room will determine what type of rug you need."

Round rugs are one of the most versatile shapes for a rug. They can soften the lines in a room and create a sense of balance and helps define spaces in an open floor plan.

They are generally best suited to rooms with low or no furniture - like an entryway or foyer. Because they don't have sharp edges that can get in the way of traffic flow or make it harder for people to walk around.

Of course. When choosing a new rug for your home, there are a few things to consider in regards to its shape.

Round rugs are great for adding a playful and cosy touch to smaller rooms. They look best with circular furniture or light fixtures.

Square rugs are ideal for square rooms. They match easily with square tables and also pair well with round furniture.

If you prefer a more traditional look, rectangular rugs are a great choice for large open spaces. It can also serve as kitchen rugs or hallway runners.

In the end, it's better to complement the shapes of different pieces rather than match everything exactly.

Choosing the Right Size

When choosing the right size for your round rug, it's important to consider how it will look in your space.

Round rugs are used to frame a seating area or define a space. They can also create a focal point.

Imagine. You have a large room with high ceilings and are looking for an easy way to break up the space.  Consider placing one or more large rugs at opposite ends of your flooring.

This will help create smaller areas by breaking up the area into two. Your guests can gather at either without feeling disconnected from one another. Or overwhelmed by their surroundings ("too much room").

If you have limited square footage and need something that won't take up too much of a visual eyesaw, consider using smaller round rugs instead.

They'll still provide plenty of comfort while taking up less visual space than larger rugs would need.

Rug Colour Coordination

A room is only as good as how it's decorated, and colour schemes are one of the easiest ways to do that well. It gives a room personality, flow, and an overall uniform feel.

Here's how to do it in a way that's not just practical, but also brings out the emotions you want to evoke in your space:

Consider dominant colour. Look at the dominant colour in the room, whether it's the wall colour, upholstery, or artwork - and choose a rug colour that complements it. You can either match the dominant colour or choose a shade that contrasts it for a bold and eye-catching look.

Match the mood. The colour of your rug can also affect the mood of the room. To give you an idea: Warm colours such as red, yellow and orange can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Cool colours such as blue, green and purple can create a calming and relaxing vibe.

Use a neutral colour.  If you're not sure what colour to choose, a neutral colour such as beige, gray or white can be a safe and versatile option. Neutral colours can easily blend in with any existing colour scheme and won't compete with other elements in the room.

Matching Materials

When you look at a room, do you see harmony or discord? Do the furniture and rug work together to create a pleasing effect? Or, do they clash like a game of rock, paper, scissors?

A little attention to detail can make all the difference.

Start by feeling the texture of your furniture. Is it soft and inviting, like a warm blanket on a cold winter's night? Then choose a rug that mimics that coziness, like a shag or plush rug.

Or is your furniture sleek and contemporary, like a shiny sports car? Then choose a rug with a similar sleek texture, like a flat-weave or low-pile rug.

Now, on materials. If your furniture is made of natural wood, you want your rug to be in the same vein, with a natural material like jute or sisal.

If your furniture is upholstered, a synthetic rug, like one made of polypropylene, would be a great match.

In the end, it's all about creating a room that's both beautiful and emotional.

Layering Rugs

Adding layers to your decor is like adding the final brushstrokes to a masterpiece.

By layering rugs, you can take your room from bland to breathtaking, infusing it with depth, texture and a whole lot of personality.

Here's how to make it happen.

Start by selecting two rugs of differing sizes, both with their own unique charm.

A small rug placed on top of a larger one can create an interesting design. This is both dynamic and appealing to the eye.

Next, think about texture. Combine a shag rug with a flat-weave one, or a plush rug with a braided one.  This is to create a multi-dimensional look that's sure to make a statement.

A variety of patterns and colours will help to bring your layered rugs to life. 

So it's best to choose rugs that are either in the same colour family or have complementary designs.

Mix and Match

Blending different furniture styles can be a daunting task, but with the right round rug, it becomes a cinch.

Round rugs have a natural softness and fluidity that ties any furniture style together. So creating a unique and eclectic vibe will be a challenge.

How you do it?

Choose a round rug with a neutral colour or pattern that serves as a grounding force for your space.

Then, let your imagination run wild by blending various furniture styles.  Contemporary and rustic, or traditional and modern.

Make sure to choose pieces that share a similar colour palette or texture, to create a harmonious balance.

Don't be afraid to let your personality shine through, by adding bold accent pillows or curtains that add pops of colour or pattern.

This will help bring everything together and create a mesmerizing tapestry of style and comfort.

With these tips, you'll have a living space that truly reflects your unique spirit and welcomes you and your guests with open arms.
