SHF: 5 Ways With An Area Rug For A Stylish Indoor Space

Anchor a room, warm up your floor, and create a cosy and complete interior design – all with the right area rug. Rugs offer endless benefits and style to a room. Follow these five design ideas to help you choose the right rug for your space and shop some of our favourite rugs at SHF.

But first things first…

When choosing a rug, consider the size of your room, your design style, the shape you need and more. A rug is more than just a beautiful addition to your space. The right rugs meets all of your needs and helps to tie the room’s look together.

Style – Consider the look of your room and how your rug needs to fit into the bigger picture. Furthermore, ensure that your dream rug complements your sense of style. Fads may come and go, so follow your gut instead. Choose something that speaks to you and will add to the look and feel of the room. After all, you’re the one who will need to live with your choice.

Size – Measure up your room and be sure to pick the right size to suit your space. As a design tip – use masking tape and measure out the outline of where you hope to place your rug. Step back and take a look if you’re happy with the size.

Colours and Patterns – What are the focal colours of your room? Be sure to tie this into your rug selection. You’ll want to select a rug that complements the two or three main colours in your space. Add similar accent tones to the other soft furnishings in your room – throws and pillows can further pick up the colours that are presented in your rug.

Five Ways With Rugs…

Marvellous Monochrome

Go for a modern aesthetic with a paired back colour palette of monochromatic tones. Black, white and grey create a timeless and contemporary look. Take a look at our top 7 rugs from SHF – each with its own striking look that could fit into a bold, beautiful monochromatic design scheme.

Geometric Elegance

Opt for a bold rug choice featuring a geometric design. This can add depth to your interior and a focal point in your room. A geometric pattern can further draw the eyes down to your floors and create added elegance in your space. The Elemental Dark Rug from SHF offers a striking geo pattern that will fit into a contemporary room.

The Layered Look

Who says that you only need one rug per room? Create a high-end designer look by pairing two rugs, carefully layered on top of one another. Vary the shapes and sizes – introduce a striking round rug on top of a rectangular rug, for example. The round Swirl Rug from SHF is a beautiful statement piece that could work well in a layered look. This will add a whole new dimension to your space.

Dark Drama

Dark rugs have many benefits. The darker tone on your floors will add instant depth to a room. It is also much easier to maintain than a lighter rug. Dark rugs can help to set the mood. The Rocco Dark Rug and Bora Darkness Rug from SHF are both bold, dark and dramatic choices for any room. These can add a little drama and create intrigue in a modern setting.

Modern Patterns

A rug is a piece of art for your floors. So, why not invest in a modern rug design to work as a statement piece in your room. Your rug can also be the anchor of the entire designs scheme. The Bora Typhoon Rug from SHF introduces a splash of pattern in a fun, subtle way. This is proof that a simple patterned rug is a fun way to brighten up your space and add colour in an exciting way.
