Selecting a rug is an important moment, since it will define the character of our spaces. This is why we have prepared a rug placement guide to help you achieve then perfect rug layout for your space.
The first step is to always measure the floor space in which the rug will be placed as well as considering the furniture that will coexist in the chosen area so as to ensure you are able to take the best possible decision in regards to interior design.
As a general rule, large and small rest areas benefit greatly from adding a rug, which helps to define the different spaces and brings comfort to the entire room. A rug will additionally offer acoustic insulation.
We recommend choosing large rugs to accompany furniture. A rug that does not extend to at least the length of the main sofa may seem overly small.
Circular and smaller size rugs are great solution to create a more intimate reading nook.
The size of the rug should be proportional to the size of the table and ideally slightly larger so that the back legs of the chairs do not protrude from the rug once seated. Specifically,
a seated person generally occupies 75cm; therefore, the rug should be approximately 1m larger than the table on each side.
The benefits of a rug are especially attractivenfor work environments: it is an excellent acousticn and thermal insulator while reducing static electricity. In addition, rugs provide warmth and well-being.
Rugs can be placed under individual desks or in meeting rooms where comfort is especially necessary. The rug will also be a great ally in creating different areas within the same space, such as leisure and rest, reception and waiting areas, etc.
A rug is a great companion for bedrooms, where maximum comfort is usually sought.
It can be placed at the foot of a bed, taking advantage of the warmth it offers upon entering and leaving the room; smaller sizes can be placed on both sides of the bed or the rug can
even be used as a decorative element
Long, narrow rugs, commonly labelled runners, work very well in kitchens. One example would be to separate food preparation and eating
areas. A rug can also be placed to indicate a transition to another room.
Although less frequent, a rug can be the perfect companion for bathrooms. Adding a touch of comfort, separating wet zones from the rest of the room or indicating the entrance to a different area.
Outdoor rugs are perfect for terraces and outside areas in order to achieve the same sensation of comfort as indoor spaces. These rugs will help to define specific areas and add
personality, while being resistant
and easy to maintain.
Similar to recommendations for interiors: choose large rugs to accompany sofas and armchairs.
Should a table complete the outdoor setting, the rug should be proportional to the size
An outdoor rug can be a great asset for pool areas where we wish to add color and personality.
