RUG UP

Homes+ (Australia) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

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.
