How can a rug help elevate or complete a room?

It helps tie together a space and can function in so many ways, whether it’s bringing colour into a neutral room or serving as an anchor to help tone down a colourful space. You should think about textural options when selecting a rug since texture is so helpful in adding depth and contrast to an existing room. If you have a linen sofa, perhaps you pair it with a warm wool rug?


How to choose a style that will suit your space?

Most interior designers tend to believe that the floor is the starting point for building out a room. It’s helpful to start with the foundation and build out with intention. If you have a vintage style carpet, it can be nice to layer contemporary pieces of furniture. If you’re working with a classic jute carpet, you may decide to opt for neutral items that play off the texture. Neutral rugs, like jute are an amazing textural base for any room. From there, you can take your room in any direction by dressing it up with more elevated pieces or dressing it down with casual, comfortable furniture.

Size and placement tips

For living rooms, it looks amazing to have all your furniture sitting on a large rug. A common way to size a rug is to ensure that it reaches underneath all four feet of all the furniture. However, if that is not possible due to the size or layout of your space, we suggest having the front two legs of a chair or sofa rest on the mat with the back legs off it. 


At RelaxHouse, we also have smaller sized carpets that work well in the bedroom, kitchen, office, hallway, and more. Adding a rug to the foot of your bed or across a bare hallway will give your space a punch of powerful personality.


You should measure the room in which you’d like to place the rug and purchase a size that allows you to maintain a gap of 20-60cm from the walls. The smaller the room the smaller the gap.
