Energise Your Timber Flooring With Colourful Rugs
A room is never complete until there’s a bit of colour and pattern on the floor. You will be amazed at how much difference an area rug can change the look and feel of a room. Whether you go for a statement piece with bold colours to transform a room without completely re-decorating or choose something more subtle to blend with your existing décor and tie a room together, you will be amazed at the results.
Rugs on timber floorboards provide pops of colours and styles, soften the room, and define your space.
Add a pop of colour and style
Adding an area rug can give your space style, it’s an easy way to add some visual interest that reflects your style and personality. While rugs are a must for a stylish living room, they should still match the size and style of the space.
For neutral rooms choose a carpet with a pattern or texture to add interest to your living space. This will keep the room neutral but also add warmth to your home. Also, using neutral colours with a neutral lounge setting will ensure a relaxed oasis feel.
For dark wooden floors, use light-coloured rugs to soften the floor and lighten the room. Darker rugs will only darken the room and, contrary to popular belief, darker carpets will show up dust and hairs much more than lighter carpets.

Define your space
If you have a large multi-functional room, an area rug can help you define your space, giving you a more intimate and organised room ‘zones’. For large rooms, small rugs imbalance the room, so go for a large rug that the front feet of your furniture are placed on. This provides balance and creates zones for your room, and will also make it feel larger.
Small area rugs can help tie a room together or protect your hardwood flooring from furniture legs scratches. Small rugs also add texture, not to mention something soft to land your feet on.
Timber floors are beautiful and easy to maintain but they lack the comfort that carpeted floors offer, especially in the cooler months. Area rugs can add fun and functionality to your living space.
