From Bland to Grand: How to Turn Your Rug into the Focal Point of the Room

Here are 10 tips for using a rug as a focal point in a room:

  1. Size matters: Choose a rug that is large enough to make a statement in the room. It should be big enough to anchor the furniture in the space, but not so big that it overwhelms the room.

  2. Choose a bold design: A rug with a bold design or pattern can draw the eye and create a focal point in the room. Don't be afraid to choose something colourful or with a unique pattern.

  3. Contrast is key: If the walls in your room are light, choose a rug with a darker colour. If your walls are dark, choose a lighter rug. The contrast will help the rug stand out and make it a focal point.

  4. Experiment with texture: A rug with a unique texture, like a shag or a woven pattern, can create visual interest and become a focal point in the room.

  5. Layer rugs: Layering rugs is a great way to create a focal point. Try layering a smaller rug with a bold pattern on top of a larger, solid-coloured rug.

  6. Use a rug to define a space: If you have an open concept living area, a rug can help define different zones within the space. Use a rug to create a cosy seating area or a dining space.

  7. Think outside the box: Don't limit yourself to traditional rectangular rugs. A round or oval rug can make a unique focal point in the room.

  8. Choose the right material: The material of the rug can impact the overall look and feel of the space. A plush, soft rug can create a cosy vibe, while a flatweave rug can give a more modern feel.

  9. Pay attention to placement: Make sure the rug is placed in a spot where it can truly shine. Consider placing it in the center of the room or under a key piece of furniture, like a coffee table or dining table.

  10. Don't forget about maintenance: A rug that is dirty or worn won't make a good focal point. Make sure to regularly clean and maintain the rug to keep it looking its best.

By following these tips, you can use a rug to create a focal point in your room that is both stylish and functional. Whether you choose a bold pattern or a unique texture, a rug can help tie the room together and make it feel complete
