Circular & round rugs the alternate shape

Round rugs can give an alternate look to your floor space, the circular shape works well in so many different environments. Living rooms and hallways, bedrooms and kitchens are typical spaces where floor space can get restricted, either by shape or by the general clutter of furniture. Round rugs can work extremely well in so many of these awkward areas. Not everyone likes to stand furniture on rugs and in the case of halls, we often just need a something decorative at the bottom of the stairs. So, when trying to buying a round rug in the UK, why is your choice so restricted when it comes to size and colour?

High street stores find round rugs difficult to display. They can’t be hung on standard rug displays and will get damaged or creased if stood on end. This means the majority of sales revert to the online rug specialist. Handmade round rug can be produced with relieve ease, but in the case of machine-made rugs, the cutting and binding of the circular shape often cannot be automated. This makes the process manufacturing a round rug more time consuming which ultimately reflects on the finished price. The simple facts are, round rugs can be a bit of a pain to retailers and manufacturers alike.

Finding the ideal location for a modern or traditional round rug

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 give a bedroom a modern edge or a hallway that touch of traditional elegance with the simple use of curves, colour and design 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.

Circular elements can really accentuate a smaller room, making it appear larger and wider if you find the area a bit 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 room. If you have a passageway that seems too large and empty then a good quality circular mat can add colour, substance and style whilst reducing the appearance of a bare hallway.

Using contemporary shapes and colours

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.
