Rugs are a popular complementary flooring solution for defining spaces in open planned living areas and seasonally changing the look of any space. With an array of colours, designs and textures, rugs are perfect for those in need of a quick decoration solution.

  • If you use more than one rug in a room, make sure they are not the same size. Otherwise they will visually cut your room in half.

  • Rugs can visually quieten a room or turn up the volume, depending on the colour and design you select.

  • Before you buy a rug for your room, measure your space. Subtract 1m from the length and width, giving you your maximum rug size. Leaving the floor bare at the edges will make your room appear larger.

  • If you use more than one rug in a room, make sure they are not the same size. Otherwise they will visually cut your room in half.

Dining Room

When selecting a rug for your dining area, you need to ensure the rug is large enough to fit under chairs that have been pulled back from the table, as well as allowing a little more space to help define the area.


Living Room

There are three different ways rugs can work in your living area, depending on the look and feel you want to create:

1. No furniture legs on your rug – If you are introducing a rug with a strong pattern or colour, this style will allow your rug to be the statement piece within your space.


2. Front furniture legs on your rug – This works well for those wanting to tie their room together, to create a casual and inviting environment.


3. All furniture legs on your rug – This style is ideal for those wanting to achieve a formal living area.



Depending on what you want to achieve, there are two main ways rugs can work in your bedroom:

1. Under your bed – To treat your feet each morning and night, allow 2/3 of the rug to be under your bed, ensuring the width extends beyond the sides.


2. At the end of your bed – To create an extra layer within your room, add a rug at the end of your bed, ensuring it extends beyond the sides.
