Simple Striped rugs are sophisticated and elegant, they can transform a room or they can complete a room. Striped rugs are always in fashion, however, like all fashions they have had highs and lows in terms of popularity. In the 60’s broad striped rugs were very popular and again in the 80’s striped rugs were naturally back with narrower stripes . Today simple striped rugs are more popular than ever, they are available with different sized striped designs and in a wide variety of different colours and they incorporate the design of the 60’s and 80’s era’s to produce beautiful and elegant simple striped rugs.
Benefits of striped rugs:
Adding a striped rug can completely change the dynamics of a room, for example the addition of a striped rug in a room with plain neutral décor will give the illusion of additional space as it will feel like the walls have been pushed out. Whereas adding a striped rug in a room with a collation of other patterns brings the walls in and creates a cosier feel and a busier space.
As there are a number of stripes, even within the simplest of rugs, they offer an array of colour’s, each colour scheme giving a different feel to room. Natural colours, such as cream, grey and brown tones create a calm and relaxed atmosphere. A colour scheme of stripes of blues and greens give an ocean feel and offer a sense of serenity, whereas a colour scheme of reds, yellows and burnt oranges offer a Middle Eastern feel. Striped rugs, therefore, are extremely versatile, whatever décor currently in use – there is a rug that will fit in with it.
In rooms where there are a number of different colours, either clashing or cohabiting harmoniously together, the addition of a striped rug that incorporates these colours will bring the whole room together and complete it. In a room that is colourless, with simple natural tones the addition of a striped rug can bring life and colour.
Along with the above benefits striped rugs offer, they also boast the same benefits as other rugs, they reduce noise levels and create a warmer atmosphere within a room. They offer protection for the flooring and further to this they offer protection for things or people falling onto the floor-they offer a softer landing.
