Explore how something as simple as a rug can effortlessly transform any room. One of the easiest ways to change up your space this season is to switch out that old shabby carpet and replace it with a beautifully chic centrepiece rug. Compared to nearly every other major furnishing that makes its way into homes, a rug is usually approached as an afterthought. But those days are gone! Designers and decor bloggers have proven that rugs are a crucial decision, and we see now homeowners have finally followed suit, making for an Instagram-worthy space. Not only can a rug add style, texture, and colour to your space, they also have a range of practical benefits - from warming your home, to reducing noise and protecting your floor. Perhaps, as we say goodbye to the warmer weather, a rug is essential for those with hard floors as it will help to soften a space and add some much needed warmth.

Need more convincing? Here are the top four reasons why you need at least one in your home ASAP.

  

CHANGE YOUR COLOUR THEME

A rug has the ability to add to (or change) the colour scheme in a room. Rugs with a lot of colour and design features mean you are not locked into one aspect and you can change the colour of the walls several times over the life of the rug. Consider buying two different styles for your living room: thin, light-coloured rug for summer and a chunkier, darker one winter. Changing the mood of your room can be as easy as swapping between the two rugs.

 

NO NEUTRALS ALLOWED

Want to brighten up your space? Rugs are the perfect way to add a pop of colour into a room. As well as being a profound statement, they can enlarge a room by bringing more light in. Rugs are not placed at your eye line, so even the boldest of rugs won’t be domineering.

Runners are an ideal choice to break up the dullness of a room while giving you a chance to experiment with vibrant colours that bring out airiness in your home.

Patterned rugs a great option, especially if they have white tones in them; this will help give light to the room without showing every speck of dirt on it. We say it’s time to ditch your neutral rug for one that will brighten your home decor.

When you wake up first thing in the morning, the last thing you want to land your feet on is a cold hardwood floor. Even looking at them can make you feel chilly! So why not make a statement, lay down a rug over your floors during colder months to help warm up the whole house and keep your tootsies snug. There’s nothing like warming your feet on a nice rug leading up to winter!

Good news! Scuffs, spills and dings on your gorgeous floors are totally preventable. If you have hardwood floors or carpet, decorating with an area rug can help protect - this is particularly important if you're renting! Place one in high-traffic areas to provide a protective barrier against furniture legs, foot traffic, and pets while adding style to any floor in your home. A quality rug will be durable and easy to clean, which will keep your floors looking beautiful and wholesome.
