Add Warmth to Your Home This Winter with a Textured Rug
Textured Rugs for Winter
As the days seem to disappear into darkness a little earlier and the temperature drops, the allure of cosying up on the couch or in bed becomes just a little stronger.
If you’ve completely traded in the outdoor activities for movie marathons or you’re just looking for a way to take the chill out of those cold floors in the morning, you can give your home décor an update AND warm your home with a textured rug – or three.
At Urban Rugs, we stock a wide range of textured rugs in modern designs to suit your home décor, make a bold statement or enhance the character of your home.
How to Style a Textured Rug
Textured rugs are an affordable, cost effective way to add depth and character to a room, but how exactly are you meant to style them?
Using a rug pad to keep your rug in place, you can place your rug over tiles, wood or even carpet to add dimension and warmth to your room.
In open plan living spaces, we recommend buying a generous sized rug that can be used to separate the lounge room and dining area. As a general rule, you should aim for your rug to be wider than your lounge, giving your lounge room a defined space to catch up or relax.
Scandi Style Textured Rugs
One style that has come back onto everyone’s radar – and for good reason – is Scandinavian décor, affectionately referred to as “Scandi”.
Scandi rugs are very popular, with grey, white and neutral tones at the forefront of this light, bright, clean and minimal style. However, these softer tones can be shaken up with texture; knotted, flatweave and hand loomed weave types are popular ways to add that extra wow factor to your room.
The neutral colour palette of Scandi style suits most spaces and offers a popular and modern, yet timeless style; which is great for those on a budget, or those who want to make the most out of their rug purchase.
How to Choose a Textured Rug
Trying to find the perfect textured rug to suit your décor, room size, furniture and overall style can be difficult, with so many options out there, what are the most important things to consider when making your decision?
A big factor many people forget about is lifestyle – how will you use the room? Will the rug get a lot of foot traffic or very little? Do you have pets that are likely to enjoy the rug in front of the fireplace more than you?
If the rug is in an entry hall, under the kitchen table or in your main lounge area, you should consider a textured rug made from material that is hardy, stain resistant, and easy to clean. Avoid knotted rugs and textured rugs with excessive lumps and bumps, as your vacuum cleaner may not take fondly to your beautiful new rug!
Finding a versatile and hardy rug that can be flipped over and reversed will also help you to get the most out of your purchase, allowing you to subtly hide that pasta sauce stain or the over-trodden section of rug.
Match the Décor
Your new textured rug should complement the look of your home by matching the colour, style and finish of your other furniture.
Take the time to appreciate the colours and textures already present in your home and consider what the near future might hold. However, don’t be afraid to be bold – buy that textured rug with the interesting pattern or colour palette and make a statement!
