Able to enrich any space with their patterns and colors, rugs are very important decorative elements in the decoration of any environment. Find out how to choose the right rug to match your space.
Whatever the room, with their colors, patterns and textures, rugs provide a distinct personality and, without a doubt, added comfort. Depending on where and how they are placed, they are able to create different sensations of space. Even though there are no rules on how to choose or correctly place a rug, there are certain patterns that can guide you in choosing the perfect size for any room..
If you want to create an illusion of a wider space, you should place the furniture on top of the rug.
The opposite effect will be achieved by using a mat to separate or enhance an area within a room. The rug should be located in the center of the room, just under a few pieces of furniture and placed under only the front legs of the sofa.
In a smaller room, you should opt for a smaller rug with a striking pattern that should be placed in the center of the space without any furniture on top of it. This arrangement will help create the feeling of greater space.
It is important that the mat chosen for this space is large enough so that chairs do not catch on the edge of the mat when they are dragged to sit. The minimum distance for this not to occur is 75 cm, so to obtain the indicated measurement for your table, you should add 150 cm to your table, both in length and in width.
A rug is a very important element to complement a room's decor. In order for it to stand out, it should be placed under the bed in a balanced way, and it should be large enough to stand out at least 45 cm along the entire perimeter, leaving an uncovered space to place the bedside tables.
You can also choose to use two smaller mats on each side of the bed and one on top.
You can also opt for a bespoke solution, which we call "U shape rug" to achieve a luxurious, modern and, at the same time, easy-to-clean look, as you won't have to put a rug under the bed.
Rugs help transform hallways and entrance halls into aesthetic and functional spaces that enrich a home. As a general rule, they should have an inverse proportion to the length of the space, that is, if it is a long corridor, it is possible to visually shorten it with several rugs. If it is short, a single mat, narrower than the aisle, should be used to create a longer visual effect.
In large rooms, such as living and dining rooms, different rugs can coexist harmoniously. One way to complement them is to seek a certain coherence between the designs, for example, through the pattern or color.
As we stated initially, there are no unbreakable laws when decorating a space. It is a creative process that is governed by personal tastes and imagination. The most important thing is that the decoration is functional and reflects the essence of those who inhabit the space.
