Under Your Feet: Decorating With Rugs

Carpets are a valuable decorative element: they help define spaces, give a feeling of warmth, work as a thermal insulator and absorb noise, in addition to providing character, comfort and colour to spaces.

Choice Of Rugs

Colour And Print

When we choose the colour of the rugs, we must take into account the size of the space to be decorated, since if the room is small, it will appear larger if the carpet is light, on the other hand, in large spaces, a dark rug helps to reduce the size and provide a more intimate and welcoming atmosphere.

The colour and pattern of the rugs should be in keeping with the decorative style, using bright colours if the rest of the decoration is modern, carpets with volume and neutral colours in minimalist settings, or with more daring geometric designs in offices and public spaces.

Shape And Size

Thanks to the current trend in the use of open spaces in interior architecture, carpets have become more important to delimit spaces, and the size and shape will depend on the place where it is used and the sensation you want to create.

If we use a carpet in a corridor, it is convenient to place them centrally and with an air of about 15 cm from the walls and take into account that they have a non-slip bottom surface to avoid accidents.

In the dining room, it is important to keep in mind that the chairs should always be inside the carpet, even when the diners set them aside to sit, so it is necessary to consider about 80 or 90 cm around the table for the size of the carpet.

Material And Use

When choosing the material for the rugs, the use or place where we are going to place them will be a decisive factor.

In the market there are a wide variety of materials used in the manufacture of organic jute rug:

  • Natural animal fibres (wool, cotton) and vegetables (sisal, jute, bamboo)
  • Synthetic fibres (vinyl, pvc, polyethylene)
