UPDATING YOUR SPACE QUICKLY
If you are looking for a way to make changes to your space, without the upheaval of renovating or even decorating, a rug is the perfect addition that can make a huge impact on your space.
SET THE TONE OF YOUR SPACE
What feeling do you want your space to portray? Do you want your living room to have a more formal entertaining space? Or do you want it to feel cosy and casual? To create a more formal look you may choose a more traditional pattern and neutral toned rug. If you want to create a casual look, you could choose a rug with brighter colours and patterns or more texture.
ADDS SOFTNESS AND WARMTH TO SPACE
In a room with flagstone or wooden flooring, a rug will add a feeling of comfort and warmth to a space. Literally retaining heat and providing an added source of insulation.
CREATE AN ANCHOR POINT FOR FURNITURE
Just like an unusual piece of furniture or artwork, a rug can be used to create a focal point in a room. The right rug can complement or enhance your accessories, focusing attention to itself. Grouping your furniture inward toward the rug helps anchor the furniture in the composition of the room.
IMPROVES ACOUSTICS AND ABSORBS SOUND
The wool composition of a rug can help improve acoustics in spaces, big and small. A rug can absorb sound to help reduce noise in your home. This is especially helpful if you live in an open plan space, large country home or a home with wooden or flagstone flooring.
A GREAT WAY TO INCORPORATE PATTERN AND TEXTURE
Looking to incorporate pattern and texture into your space? Get a rug! A patterned or textured rug is the perfect way to either liven up or cosy down a room.
An effective way of adding your personal style and giving visual balance to a space. We encourage you to get creative, jump out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. Perhaps by mixing patterns in your space if they work together. For example, a large, patterned rug with smaller patterned pillows in the same colour scheme.
GIVING INSPIRATION TO A SPACE
Many people think of a rug as a “finishing touch” for a room. However, we believe you should start by choosing a rug to provide a colour palette to begin with. A rug can serve as inspiration that links to other colours used within the space, rather than it being an afterthought.
The unbeaten knowledge of rugs for sale, cleaning, restoration and bespoke makes The Rug Studio unique. We help clients achieve their ideal environment and atmosphere of a room.
