Circular & round rugs the alternate shape.
The obvious location for round rugs is under circular furniture such as coffee tables and dining tables. Under normal circumstances we dismiss circular shapes as not being for us, yet they can be used to give a room to give a room or hallway that touch of elegance with the simple use of curves without over domination of the space.
Think about a the shape as design element, for example larger sizes can be used partially under furniture such as corner suites and beds to create really funky effects.
Round as a Pound
Circular elements can really accentuate a hall, making it appear larger and wider if you find your hallways appear too narrow. If your decor is neutral then why not try a beautifully patterned or a bright colour to really set off the area, drawing the eyes to the shape on the floor and the way it contrasts with the colours in your hall. If your passageway seems too large and empty then a good quality mat can add colour, substance and style whilst reducing the appearance of a bare hallway. Shapes can make a house seem more inviting, making it appear warmer with a contemporary look. Even a plain neutral colours can revitalise the most boring of rooms, especially if your decor is quite bright. Curves can give a tiled or laminate flooring dimensions in warmth and style, choose soft, pale, pastel colours for dark coloured floors and maybe bright primary colours for lighter coloured floors.
