How to style your carpet

The most important item for setting the mood in a room?

The most important item for setting the mood in a room? A carpet. It’s the finishing touch for any space. A rug provides atmosphere, warmth and works as a connecting factor in your interior. In this blog we provide you styling tips.

The ratio

Optically it is nice to choose a carpet that takes up about two-thirds of the sofa. You can choose to place the rug in the middle, but sliding it to the left or right can also work very well. There are different options for the location of the furniture.


Setup 1: Front legs on the rug

To create unity in the seating area, you can place the front legs of the sofa or chair on the rug. This way you connect the furniture with each other and ensure a good balance between the furniture comes. This is a suitable arrangement for most rooms.


Setup 2: The rug as an eye-catcher

If your carpet is already a real piece of art, you can also choose to leave the carpet free of furniture. This makes the rug the centerpiece of the room. In that case, choose a smaller size so that the seating area remains in proportion.


Mix & match

Who says you have to stick to only one rug? A frequently spotted trend is layering: combining several rugs. You can choose the same patterns, but you can also play with different designs. In that case, choose the same color tones to keep the balance.

You can also vary endlessly with a rug outside the seating area. For a beautiful entrance, place a carpet in the hall. And do you want to add extra comfort and coziness to the bedroom? Then put a rug at the end of the bed. Or have you ever thought of a rug under the dining table? Tip: make sure that the carpet is large enough: all legs of the chairs must fit on the carpet.
