How can you use round rugs? Here are seven practical tips for how to use a circular rug.
Rugs are a great design option. A rug can do many things for your home, from protecting your floors to reducing sound. There’s more that a round rug can do to enhance your living space. We’ll look at how to use a round rug.
If You Want To Soften The Feel Of A Room
What do walls, doors, and stairs all have in Common? All rectangles are made. All those corners can give off a sharp, stiff feeling. If rectangles dominate your room’s decorative and functional elements, such as chairs, sofas, artwork, or windows, it can feel like a rectangle at every corner. A round rug can soften the space and break up the monotony of rectangular furniture.
In a room with other circular features
Not all decor is rectangular. If you have circular features in your room, such as a clock or lamp, placing a rug around that feature will help to draw attention and create a sense of design cohesion.
Don’t just limit yourself to highlighting round design elements. A rounded rug can enhance and accentuate an octagonal table, a rectangular frame surrounding a picture, or even a coffee table dominated by circles.
How to anchor an area in an open-concept room
Determining the spaces in an open-concept house or a large living room is crucial. Furniture placement can help define areas, but it is essential to have an anchor. Otherwise, the order may look chaotic.
Place a round carpet in the middle of the vignette to define smaller areas within a large room. Coordinate the color and fabric with the furniture and any other decorative elements. The rug’s internal boundary indicates that the site is intentional and transforms it from a few chairs and a table into a cozy, defined conversation space.
Place the chairs on either side of the circular rug, and place the small table between the two.
How to make a room feel bigger
Round rugs can also be a great way to expand a small space. This can be achieved by placing the legs of specific furniture on the edge of the rug and the rest of the table outside of the circle. The contradiction between the furniture placement and the distance between the rug’s fringe and the wall creates the illusion of more space.
What Rug Layering is
Rug layering is a great way to bring unexpected color and texture to any room. It is easy to layer two round rugs together concentrically. This will allow you to add multiple textures and colors without taking up much space.
To add a new dimension to this trend, place a circular rug on top of a rectangular one. Align the layers asymmetrically rather than stacking them neatly. Be careful not to create a trip hazard. Check out our blog post, The Modern Guide to Rug Layering, for more tips on rug layering.
In a child’s room
Traditional rectangular rugs with their straight edges can be very formal. Round rugs have become a popular choice for decorating children’s rooms. Round rugs can be used as a play area for children, creating a border that keeps everything within reach. They can also serve as a track for their toy cars or a way to run around in circles until they get dizzy.
A Small Dining Table Can Fit Under
For many reasons, a rug placed under the dining room table can be an excellent idea. It’s a great way to enhance the look of your dining room and protect your floor from scratches. A round rug will work better if your table is too small to fit two chairs on either side. This is because each person can pull out their chair without going over the rug’s edge. A round rug will not encroach on adjacent areas if you have a dining area that is part of a larger room.
