Complementing Your Home With a Traditional Rug

If you are looking for a charming addition to your home, then traditional rugs are the perfect choice. Traditional rugs complement the furniture, décor and overall style of your home. In addition, having a classic rug will reduce the noise from wooden or stone floors as well as making the area more cosy. A classically-designed rug will provide a stylish addition to your living space. As such, it is helpful to look at how to make your new rug fit in the space you intend it for. Let us look at what makes a rug traditional and what to consider when choosing one for your home.

What Are Traditional Rugs?

A traditional rug is one that has a particular classic style. It may be inspired by Oriental or Persian styles, or can be a classical European style such as Victorian or Georgian. They often have an ornate design with intricate markings and colours, with floral and medallion designs, or perhaps depicting a scene or still life. Colour palettes often feature dark reds, sage greens, beiges, navy blues and blacks. Whereas contemporary rugs tend to have a more vibrant look, the appeal of traditional rugs is in their mellow design. These rugs often present an aura of grandeur and elegance in the home.

What To Consider When Choosing Traditional Rugs

When looking at traditional rugs for your home, you should consider the following:

• How will your rug look with your interior furnishings? Consider the style and colour palette of your room and make sure the rug does not clash with it. Alternatively, if you are starting from scratch and have not yet decorated your room, consider matching your furnishings around your new rug.

• Does your new rug match the underlying surface? Your floor should be complemented by the colour and design of your rug.

• Does your rug reduce noise well? Certain hard surfaces can amplify noise, which can prove difficult if you have close neighbours. An effective rug will be able to absorb noise even if the area is very active, such as a hallway or lounge.

• Is your rug large enough for your living space? When it comes to choosing a rug, the bigger the better, and having one that fills up space will provide the best look. Consider the overall shape of the rug for easy placement as well as the borders of the rug. Generally, horizontal placement is best according to the length of the room.

• How does your rug improve your home overall? Does it define the area it is in and unify the décor? Will it open up the living space and make it feel larger and roomier? Does it make the room feel stylish and sophisticated? If so, then your choice of traditional rug has done its work.
