Shapes of contemporary rugs, whether rectangular, square, or round, are just as significant as their color, pattern, texture, and substance. Give your eyes a break from the boring rectangular carpets and rugs by adding some eye-catching round rugs for a vibrant and creative home décor palette.
If you're already sure that round rugs are necessary for your interior design demands, here are some of the greatest uses to consider if you want to get the most out of your round rugs.
1. Increase the size of small spaces
One clever trick that round rugs may do is to give the impression that smaller rooms are much larger. Because a round rug does not completely cover the floor, the circular shape gives the appearance that the room is much larger. You can use both huge and tiny round rugs, regardless of size, to enlarge a small room. Round rugs are also a terrific accent to a room with not a lot of furniture because they will fill the space up with visual interest.
2. Combine round rugs with other-shaped-rugs
Round rugs are a great way to experiment if you have an open floor décor plan. By layering several area rugs of various shapes, you can create the flawless appearance of a warm and inviting house. Round rugs are made such that they may complement any shape carpet or rug and still stand out. You can see the stacking magic it works by putting your round rug next to a rectangular rug.
3. Build contrast
Isn't it time to soften up the space a bit? Rectangular furniture, square appliances, straight edge flooring. In a world where everything has sharp edges and may appear a touch severe, round rug serve to give softness and contrast. For a novel touch that will visually catch the eye, think about putting a spherical rug under your dining room table.
4. Highlight other circular elements
Naturally, not all decor is square. Placing a circular rug close to a round component in your space, like a lamp or a clock, will highlight it and even start to create a sense of aesthetic harmony.
But don't stop at pointing out precisely circular design elements. Even an octagonal coffee table or a picture with a predominantly circular frame will be accentuated and improved by the addition of a well-positioned round rug.
