The carpets allies of style and comfort
I carpets they are not simple accessories, but elements that, if chosen and arranged in the right way, give a strong character to a corner of the room or to an entire environment.
There are several characteristics to consider when making this choice, to avoid finding yourself with a stranger in the house who just doesn’t fit with our spaces.
Colors, style, size: there are many reasons why a carpet it can be too much, even simply because it becomes an obstacle for doors and passage.
Often the choice is made a posteriori, but it would be better to choose this complement first and then the rest, precisely because it is a characterizing element that can even guide the entire palette colors of the environment.
Proportions and dimensions of the carpets
The first parameter to consider is the dimension of the carpet.
Before going to buy that carpet that we like so much, let’s be careful to take it the right measures of the place where he will have to go, without trusting our ability to interpret the proportions.
Having said that, in large rooms it will be necessary to take large carpets or even more carpets for various functions. Small carpetson the contrary, in these large spaces they would be lost visually.
Conversely, small rugs should be taken for small rooms, because large ones would over-fill them and make them seem even smaller.
The shape of the carpet
Also there shape of a carpet is very important. In principle they can indulge the dominant shapes in the environment, square or irregular, or you can act by contrast.
The carpets rectangular they manage to put together multiple parts of the room, especially when they are large, while those squares and those circular they help to make a corner more collected.
Large oval rugs they can help us to make two distant areas of the same room homogeneous. Large rugs with an irregular shape can have the same function.
This is the case, for example, of this home restyling project in which there were more functions inside the living room. To create a single homogeneous conversation area, the carpet was placed at an angle RDgrid Rug of Amen
Place multiple overlapping rugs
The same effect of overcoming large spaces with irregular shapes can be obtained overlapping two carpets rectangular, placing them perpendicular to each other or with different positions.
In this case you could play, as well as with the layout also with the color: one clear and the other in contrast, or one with a single background and the other with motifs that partly recall the color of the first.
What style for a carpet?
The style of a carpet will certainly be chosen based on that of the environment and of the whole house, so we will have modern style rugs for minimal and contemporary environments, and vice versa rugs with more sophisticated patterns and colors for more classic environments.
Typically in modern spaces very simple and abstract motifs are preferred.
Darker rugs, or oriental rugs or even Persian rugs in very precious materials such as silk are preferred if the style is that classic.
We also know that styles are made to be upset, to follow our tastes and needs.
And then we can find ourselves in a minimal environment with a beautiful patterned carpet to effect, to restore a strong character to the whole.
The colors of the carpets
The impact of a carpet can be completely transfigured by or by colors that make it up.
Also for the choice of the palette must be carefully considered room size, as small rooms need light and therefore light colors or neutral shades should be chosen for them, unless you want to give a small studio apartment a lively and friendly look. In this case we will choose colored carpets that will go well with the mood general.
Then remember that neutral colors e cold create an atmosphere relaxing, while those hot like red and orange are exciting and stimulants.
The Grey and related tones give the environment a touch of elegance and refinement.
The yellowFinally, which is a warm color, it gives light and vivacity all’ambiente.
Regarding the materials there are various carpets: from wool, to cotton, to fine silk, to natural fibers, up to those in polyester.
The classic is always wool, which gives a sense of softness and comfort.
I wool rugs large or small, but handmade they are among the most valuable ones because the imperfections of craftsmanship make them unique.
Poetry of KastHall is a handmade wool rug with geometric motifs.
Other material is that of cotton rugs, always a lot natural and quality, durable and easy to clean.
Geometric of Adriani and Rossi is a cotton and polyester rug with simple geometric lines, with a rectangular shape.
The most precious among the carpets are those made in arrow, which however have the disadvantage of being a lot delicate, so this type of choice must be commensurate with the type of use that will be made of it, in the presence of the right conditions around it so that its beauty can be preserved.
The material that has now taken the upper hand in all upholstery, due to its economy and ease of use and maintenance is polyester, which did not leave the carpets unscathed.
It is a type of rugs that have a large resistance, but also the softness of wool. Being cheaper they are very common and are able to meet the most varied needs.
Natural fiber rugs
For lovers of healthy home and natural there are rugs in natural fibers, made of fiber coconut, jute, rice and other materials.
They are materials that besides being a lot hygienic and also having a characteristic scent, they have a certain freshness, so even in the hottest seasons their presence is very pleasant.

A carpet for every room
As mentioned, rugs give character to a room, but their presence is also useful for making a floor warmer not only visually but also to the touch and sometimes even to cover some imperfections.
Finally, they are great for to protect some types of flooring such as parquet, in the areas of greatest traffic.
In every room, however, the carpet can have a different usefulness and the choice of shape, color and position here too must be suitable for every situation.
For the areas of intense passage it is preferable to use carpets a short hair, which do not retain much dirt and are more practical.
For the rest areas you can opt for one a long hair, softer and welcoming, like this faux fur rug from Houses of the world suitable for modern and very feminine environments.
Dining room carpet
For a dining room typically the rug is used to create one homogeneous area around the table. For this reason it is good that all the elements that make up this corner of the house are contained in it.
It is ugly to see chairs resting on the carpet with only two legs. Instead, it is better to have a table and chairs completely contained in the size of the carpet.
Other trick is that for round tables it is good to have round rugs and for square tables rugs with right angles.
Carbon Grove, signed Christian Lacroix is a very elegant black and white carpet, hand tufted in wool, with short pile usable for a dining area with a round table.
Choose rugs for the living room
For the living room, the carpet must be taken from the width of the sofa, with a spill of a maximum of 30 cm per side and must be positioned partly under it.
This rule does not apply to very large rooms with equally large sofas, where the carpet can be much wider than the elements it contains.
Even for very small rooms this rule does not apply, because it is preferable not to place it under the sofa, since as mentioned the carpets for these rooms are already small and, moreover, it can protrude only a maximum of 10 cm from the edges.
Carpets for kitchen and bathroom
For the kitchen the carpet has a main function of cleaning and order, it must be strictly non-slip.
It must also be easily maintained and preferably take the whole line of the kitchen, or at least the parts where the sink and stove are mounted.
Similarly for the bathroom we will have a carpet for each sanitary or a large central carpet.
Place a carpet in the bedroom
In bedroom and in the bedroom it is good to opt for very natural materials and non-toxic and in soothing colors.
The bedroom it can actually be enlivened in one part by a cheerful and colorful carpet.
For the position you can choose the classic one of the three carpets on the sides and at the foot, or better for a large carpet at the foot of the bed which can also be partially under the same.
In some cases, you can also use a large rug that contains the entire bed and bedside tables, to create more visual order.
If you want to give dynamism a possibility to the room is to place a rectangular rug between the bed and the door, rotated 45 °.
Practical advice for choosing the carpet
All the parameters for the choice of the carpet that we have listed so far must also be commensurate with a series of practical factors, linked to specific habits.
They are to be considered for example children and animals or people with reduced motor skills, so it would be better to prefer certain colors that show little dirt or that attract and retain little hair.
In this case it is necessary to be even more careful than usual so that they are also very stable.
Finally, if you live with allergy sufferers, it is good to opt for models hypoallergenic.
