Choosing where to place floor rugs
Floor rugs look wonderful in homes of all types, but they are also highly practical. Floor rugs will protect the flooring of your home from wear and tear, and they will also make a home warmer and more comfortable. Floor rugs are soft under your feet, provide insulation during colder weather, and they enhance the textures and aesthetics within your home.
You can purchase rugs of different types – different sizes, materials, shapes, colours and designs. You can also purchase rugs that function for different purposes. This means that you will certainly find the right rugs for your home, no matter how you want to use them and where you want to place them.
Living areas are popular areas for floor rugs to be placed. In larger rooms, floor rugs can be used to separate the space into smaller sections. You may not decide to use one rug for the entire room, but only one section, or a number of sections. You may choose to border your rugs with furniture, such as lounges, chairs and cupboards. Placing floor rugs in the living areas of your home will frame the space that you are using, and keep your family warm and comfortable while they are socialising and relaxing together.
Bedrooms should be warm and comfortable, and floor rugs will be especially important here if you do not have carpeted floors. You could choose a larger rug to fill the entire room and place your bed over it, or you could simply place a small rug at each side of your bed.
Children love floor rugs and you can use them in various areas of your home. Children’s rugs can be used in their own bedrooms or their play rooms, or they can be added to family areas like lounge rooms and rumpus rooms to define a specific area for young children to play in.
Kitchens and bathrooms
Have you considered placing rugs in your kitchen or bathroom? We provide rugs that are perfect for these areas, because they are easily washed and cleaned even if they get wet. These rugs are also small enough to fit into tight spaces, such as next to a bath, or along a galley kitchen. Floor rugs for wet areas will help create warmth, as these areas usually have a washable floor that is hard and cold. Add some insulation and softness beneath your feet!
Decorate your hallway with floor rugs that are perfectly shaped for long and narrow spaces. You can add several small rugs to hallways, or you can add in a long runner-style rug. Quite often hallways are difficult to decorate, because there is not much room for furniture and other items. You can however, decorate easily with floor rugs.
Outdoor floor rugs will cover up patios, decks and balconies, and they are designed to be resistant to mildew and mould, even if they do get wet. Consider adding rugs to your exterior living areas, to brighten them up and fill them with comfort and warmth.
Areas other than the floor
Floor rugs do not even need to be placed on the floor! Try hanging floor rugs over the backs of chairs, benches or railings to create a warm and welcoming environment.
