Ask anybody if they own a rug and they’ll probably say yes. That’s because rugs keep floors warm, provide a comfortable place to walk on and they’re an easy way to change the look of a room.
Persian rugs are beautiful, but decorating with them can be tricky. Below are a few ways you can add these rugs to your own home.
The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring and bland. If you’re looking for ways to add a dose of personality and warmth to your otherwise abandoned bathroom then why not consider a Persian rug. Use a Persian rug to inject colour to standard white upholstery or add a touch of glamour to a cramped space. Whatever your bathroom decor, a Persian rug is guaranteed to add personality to a typically cold space.
The kitchen is one of the most used (and most loved) rooms in the house. Gone are the days when you had to settle for a safe, uninspiring design. These days the kitchen is more than just a utility room, for many it is the heart of the home and should reflect the personality of the family that resides in it.
Vibrant and stylish Turkish and Persian rugs won’t show dirt (we won’t tell), they add texture and are extremely durable. With our Persian rugs you no longer have to sacrifice style for the sake of utility.
This is the most obvious room where you might find a Turkish or Persian rug lying around, hidden underneath a chair leg or two. The living room is arguably the most relaxing and calming room in the house, which means it should be decorated to perfection. Warm colours like red and gold are a popular choice for living room decor as they create a cosy atmosphere – expected in such an intimate space.
When it comes to decorating with Persian rugs, pattern is everything. Once you’ve chosen your rug, try pairing it with dark woods, magnolia walls and rich fabrics.
Have you ever wanted to recreate the look and feel of a 5* hotel room in your own home? The easiest way to do this is with a tapestry rug. Persian rugs can give a neutral and bland bedroom a luxurious look without going overboard.
These oriental style rugs can be layered or paired with wall to wall carpeting and bare wood floors alike. You can anchor the rug under the edge of the bed, or under a bedside table. For extra warmth at wake up time, try adding two smaller rugs either side of the bed.
Some rooms in the house might get forgotten about from time to time, especially entrance halls and stairways. To give a new lease of life to these tired, forgotten about spaces, try adding a Persian style rug. With an abundance of timeless tapestries and traditional patterns to choose from you can really treat these spaces.
Use a rug to cover a large area or to update an empty space with personality.
