Sunday Styling - Rugs & Runners

Posted by Tracey Mills on

This Sunday Styling Session is all about Rugs and Runners and their ability to bring your living space together, so today I wanted to share some valuable tips and tricks for styling rugs and runners in your home and how to choose the right size rug for your space.

Rugs are more than just functional floor coverings; they have the power to transform a room and add a touch of personality and warmth. Often the last element when styling our home.

When it comes to styling rugs and runners, one key aspect to consider is the size. We do say the bigger the better when it comes to rug size if your space allows it. In larger living spaces, opt for an oversized rug that anchors the furniture and creates a cohesive look. For smaller rooms, choose a rug that allows the furniture legs to sit comfortably on it, forming a defined area. 

If you are choosing a rug for under your Dining Table remember to allow for your chairs to move in and out we generally say a metre each side of your dining table if you can afford the space.

For bedroom styling where you want to pop a rug at the end of the bed, we tend to follow the guide below:

Single Bed - 160cm x 230cm

Double Bed - 180cm x 270cm

Queen Bed - 240cm x 300cm

King Bed - 300cm x 400cm

Another essential element to keep in mind is the colour palette. If you're looking to create a calm and serene atmosphere, choose rugs in neutral tones like a natural or bleached jute, beige, gray, or ivory. For a bolder statement and to make the rug the central focus point then incorporate vibrant colours or patterns that reflect your personal style.

Remember, rugs can be the focal point of the room or a supporting element that ties everything together.

Often we don't think about layering rugs and how they can instantly add dimension and cosiness to your space. Try placing a smaller rug on top of a larger one to create a layered effect. This technique works well in living rooms, bedrooms, and even hallways. Play with different textures, such as mixing a jute rug with a fluffy faux fur or a woven rug with a patterned kilim. The layering adds visual interest and invites you to sink your toes into pure comfort.

A runner added to your hallway or entryway will bring about a touch of luxury and create the feeling of depth. A jute runner not only protects your floors from wear and tear but also introduces a natural and welcoming element. Pair it with a console table adorned with decorative accents, or add a bench for a functional and stylish setup. 

As always we are only a DM or webchat away and will happily work with you to select the right rug or runner for your home, feel free to include a picture of your space as well, with caffeinated inspiration🤎 Tracey
