Van Dyck Floor’s exciting new rug ranges are a coveted interior design choice for winter!
As interior design trends turn towards laminate flooring and tile options, there has been an increased demand for quality-made carpet rugs that provide a sense of warmth, comfort and enhanced aesthetic to any room. Van Dyck Floors, South Africa’s oldest carpet manufacturer, has noted consumers are choosing to add interior enhancing rugs to these floor types, particularly during the cold winter months.
“Rugs are such a simple way to make a really lasting impression on any room space,” explained Bernd de Smedt, Sales & Marketing Director of Van Dyck Floors. “In addition to warmth they create in a room, both physically and psychologically, they can completely transform the look and feel depending on colour, texture and placement.”
He said that, with many interior trends leaning towards a more neutral overall palette, a vibrant rug is a great way to bring in a touch of colour, with the added bonus of a textured feel.
“The modern design has seen an abundance of sleek lines, smooth metals and quite a hard touch to the general interior dynamic, particularly with the growing need for appliances and electronics,” continued De Smedt. “There is a desire for a sense of softness, comfort and texture to break this style, giving users a more tactile experience. Rugs also improve the indoor acoustics as they absorb sounds and noise.”
He explained that rugs also serve as a vital anchoring point for any room, bringing the furniture, colour scheme and nuanced themes together: “It’s important that the rug is correctly positioned within the space, and it also needs to be the correct size. An incorrectly placed rug, or no rug at all, may make the furniture feel as if it is ‘floating’ and the area loses a sense of closeness.”
Van Dyk Floors has identified 7 of its most popular carpet ranges, all of which are available in a variety of colours. These include:
· Alethea – a vintage rug design fused with a contemporary touch.
· Durban – a textured rug that creates a welcoming atmosphere while adding an extra dimension to the floor.
