A carpet is one of the best ways to bring elegance to a room. It has the power to embellish a room if you use the correct types of carpets for the different spaces in your home. A carpet can benefit by toning down a disorderly space or it can be used to divide large spaces into cosier living areas, they are perfect for a loft or open-plan spaces. Depending on the size of your carpet they can make your rooms feel smaller or more spacious subject to where and how you place them. While certain features such as colours, fabrics and designs need to be thought of, it is just as important to know where to use them. Let’s look at the most ideal spaces to have carpets in your home and how you can make it work for you.
Carpets in Your Living Room
A carpet can transform your room’s appearance and when it comes to your living room carpet less is certainly not more. Since your living room gets a lot of traffic, the carpet you chose should be durable and able to withstand your day to day busy family life. Smaller carpets may appear jumbled and make a room look smaller, whereas large fully carpeted rooms will make the room appear more spacious and cosy. Placing a nice sized rug in the centre of your living room also helps frame your space – this makes for a sleeker more aesthetic appearance. If you have pets or kids running around remember to choose an easy to clean fabric that requires minimal maintenance or you will be spending time and money constantly having to clean your living room’s carpet.
Carpets in Your Bedrooms
Soft, comfy and warmth is the perfect choice in your bedroom. Unlike busy areas in your home bedrooms are low-traffic spaces giving you the chance to indulge in luxurious styles. While deciding on carpets for your bedrooms, there is no right or wrong choice. If you want to use the same carpets in multiple bedrooms an easy way to avoid seeming too safe is to buy carpets that have some sort of design on them. That way the pattern is repeated and the uniform flow of it won’t overwhelm the space being used.
Carpets in Your Dining Room
It is normally better to place a carpet underneath your dining room table. This helps to tie the room together while providing a sense of visual balance. When it comes to working out the size of your carpet you need to place it under the table allowing your chairs to comfortably sit on your carpet without it sliding around. There is nothing worse than a wobbly table, or a wobbly chair for that matter. To prevent this from happening you need to ensure that the type of carpet you buy is flat making it easier to secure your dining room furniture and easier clean if food or drinks is spilled on it. Avoiding fluffy soft carpets in this area of your home will surely be an advantage for you.
Home Office Carpets
With so many people working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, home offices are now more common than ever. Even for those who don’t work from home, it has become popular to have an area in your home dedicated for you to work. Whether you run your own business or simply work online, it is important to keep your home office as a stress-free place. A good tip to know is a low profile carpet is ideal for office environments. It provides easy movement for an office chair with wheels and better at accommodating heavy office furniture and equipment.
To sum it all up, placing your carpets in suitable places involves a bit of planning if you hope to achieve your desired effect. You should always feel free to experiment for you to achieve the interior aesthetic look you are aiming for.
