If you’re renting and can’t change up your floors, one of the most effective ways to transform a space, and address insulation issues, is with a floor rug. They’re soft underfoot, add texture to your interiors and have acoustic properties that can make rooms quieter, more inviting and cosy. Here are some tips when going shopping for a new rug…
The size should relate directly to the room. A rug will ideally be under your feet when you’re sitting on the sofa, or when you get out of bed in the bedroom.
If you are renting, sometimes overlapped smaller rugs can work well in a larger room. The benefit is that they can easily be repositioned if you move to suit a different size space.
In terms of style, look to the colour of your artwork, cushions or your accessories when deciding which rug design and colour will work best in your space.
