Carpets keep our feet warm and add a stylish touch to any room. However, many homeowners are left wondering, “should I put it here or there?”
No longer will you be perplexed, as this article will provide you with advice on where to place your beautiful rugs as well as the best types to go with them. Let’s get this party started.
The living room rug
If there is one room that should never be without a carpet, it is the living room. And this is because it is where we go to unwind, where we remove our slippers, put our feet up, and watch a movie or read a book. So, do you want to put your feet back down and touch the cold floor? We don’t think so!
And it is only for this reason that the living room is ranked first.
Nonetheless, here are a few requirements for your living room carpet:
- It must cover the majority of the floor space and extend beyond the seats so that the chairs’ front legs are on the rug.
- If you have children or pets, choose carpets that are not brightly coloured and are also easy to clean.
The dining room carpet
The dining room is the second location where a rug is required. It adds character to the room and elevates its appearance. When it comes to choosing a dining room carpet, there are a few ground rules to keep in mind. They are as follows:
- The rug must cover most of the floor space so that the table and chairs (pull out or in) stand firmly on top of it. You don’t want to be sitting on a wobbly seat or table while drinking a hot meal; that’s just a hazard. It’s also not very comfortable.
- Food and drink spills are unavoidable, so make sure the carpet is easy to clean. Avoid white and other brightly coloured carpets and fabric carpets that are difficult to clean, such as cotton-like fabrics.
Although it may appear to be a far-fetched idea, kitchen rugs are becoming increasingly popular. They improve the appearance of a kitchen when present.
- Waterproof or anti-slip kitchen rugs are required. You don’t want to be walking into the kitchen with a hot pot of soup and then collapsing on the floor. That is why choosing an anti-slip rug for your kitchen is critical.
- Simple to clean.
Last but not least, there’s the bedroom rug. You have two options here. The first is a foot rug, which simply sits at the edge of the bed and is stepped on when getting out of bed. Or the second, in which the entire bed is placed on top of the carpet.
If you choose the first option, make sure it is anti-slip and comfortable to walk on. If you choose option two, the same rules apply, but make sure that the edge parallel to the bed’s headrest does not touch the wall; give it a few inches. That way, it looks neater!
You must ensure the above three rooms have rugs, but if you feel your walkway will look amazing with a ferm living rug too, why not!
