Okay, this is the last of the rug placement posts. Promise:) But just like hallways, kitchens are often forgotten about when it comes to rugs. But, look what a nice addition a good rug can make in this space?
The poor forgotten hallway. It’s probably one of my favourite spots to add a rug (or runner) – but is so often overlooked. In my (humble) opinion, the hallway is the perfect spot to add character. You don’t have to be so concerned about sizing, matching, etc…and you can really just have fun and treat this piece like an accessory. Stress free! Go for it.
The dining room is a tricky spot for a rug…(food and all)…but can make such a difference! Wool is generally a very forgiving material and easy to clean. But, you’ll still need a vacuum on hand. Again, sizing questions are always raised. Ideally, I think it’s nice to be able to pull chairs out and sit back down without the legs catching on a part of the rug. But, this means your rug will need to be wider than you might like (i.e. more expensive) and might not fit your space. So, as always, work with what you’ve got and make your own rules.
Some more rug inspiration. In a bedroom, it’s always nice to be able to have something soft underfoot. If you can swing it, I like to have a rug sit just in front of the nightstands, with good coverage all around…but this can get pricey. Understandably, lots of people don’t want to pay for a big area rug and have most of it hidden under a bed. So…there are loads of ways to get creative – runners on either side of the bed, a rug in front of the bed, off to the side, partially under the bed… As always, anything goes. Here’s some inspiration on rug placement / style in a bedroom:
