If your floors are looking a bit worn and worse for wear, why not invest in a large rug to cover the majority of the problem? This will give the impression of style and sophistication and you won’t have to worry about your worn floors any longer.
This is a great idea if you cannot afford new flooring or to replace your carpet. Carpets, wooden and laminate flooring can be expensive, and if you are renting you may not see the point in replacing the floors. Large rugs can be just what you need to cover damage, stains and signs or wear, transforming the look of your room instantly.
Rugs are known for adding warmth, fashion, colours and quality to your home. A rug can immediately change the look and mood of any room depending on what kind of rug you go for. Make sure the rug you choose matches your decor, or you could always work your decor around your rug! In a contemporary and stylish home it is wise to choose an area rug with a geometric or heavy pattern. This will draw attention to the rug and the surrounding decor. Floral and neutral rugs would fit in well with a classically styled home, giving an extra touch of sophistication.
If you have an old and worn carpet you need covering then it is advisable to go for a full-size rug that will fit the whole of your room. This will cover any stains, marks and signs of wear and give the illusion of a brand new carpet. Normally there will be a border around the rug where the carpet will show but as this is likely to have the least wear and tear this will not affect the look of your room. The border should not exceed around 24 inches to avoid showing stains and giving the room an odd look.
If you have laminate or wooden flooring with scuffs in certain places, you could always get several smaller rugs to cover these areas, or one large area rug. Try and place furniture partially over the rugs for a really unique look, or just use your imagination! Rug runners are excellent for covering parts of floors you don’t want people to see. These are often used for hallways, but look amazing, for example, by the side of the bed or in front of the sofa.
