Posted by admin on


October has arrived and, although the temperatures are still deceiving us, Autumn is here and it is not long before we start looking for the comfort, intimacy and coziness that our carpets offer us – a little earlier if the floor of the house we are cold, as happens e.g. with marble, a little later for more fluffy, thick or warm carpets like flokati and shaggy carpets. We can't help with the laying of carpets - however we can make choosing the right carpet for each of your spaces easier!

The first thing we should think about is the first thing that catches our eye, both ours in our daily lives and our visitor's: the size of the carpet in relation to the space. After all, one of the main properties of a carpet is to define the space in which it is placed. Therefore, a large space, as a general rule, requires a larger rug – otherwise the room will look empty and the rug out of place. Correspondingly, in a small space, a smaller carpet is better suited so that it does not 'bother', both aesthetically and functionally, the furniture in the room. More generally, we choose to leave a margin between the edge of the carpet and the wall, at least 20 cm in a smaller space and at least 40 in a larger one. In any case, however, beyond the dimensions of the space, we should take into account the use for which we intend the space as well as the furniture that will be inside it and their layout.

The living room, for example, is one of the busiest areas in the home and, for most of us, it is the center of entertainment – ​​where we will gather with the family in the evenings after work, where we will watch movies and let's play board games, where we will fall asleep on Saturday afternoons and gather with friends for 'the match'. This means that the carpet we choose should definitely be durable. In addition to this, however, we also have certain dilemmas that we will have to answer.

With a very large carpet, we can place the sofa, armchairs, chairs, table, floor lamps and the rest of the living room furniture on it, thus giving the space a sense of luxury. However, such a large rug is difficult to move around, during the summer months it can collect a lot of dust and requires very regular cleaning throughout the year, especially if you have four-legged friends around the house!

Another common choice is to have the rug reach the front legs of the sofa or, alternatively, in a slightly larger living room, place the rug in the middle of the room, with the furniture around it. Such a medium-sized rug demarcates the center of interest in the living room, especially if it has a single open layout, and has the advantage of not suffering as much from the passage of time since it does not cover the most trafficked areas of the living room where it is not there is furniture, the so-called 'corridors'.

In any case, as a general rule we can remember that a carpet must allow circulation in the living room. For this to happen, its corridors should either be completely carpeted or not at all. The same goes for the rest of the living room furniture, with the possible exception of the sofa.

Choosing a rug for the dining room is an easier task, as long as we remember one simple rule: we don't want the dining room chairs to get in the way of the edge of the rug when they move, so they should be on the rug even when they are open. In other words, by measuring about 60 centimeters from each edge of the table, we can quickly calculate the ideal size for our rug.

For the bedroom, one of our options is a large carpet on which all the furniture (bed and nightstand/s) will be placed. Alternatively, the carpet can come "below" the headboard and cover half the bed. In both cases, we make sure that the carpet is at least 30-40 cm beyond the edges of the bed so that when we get up from it we don't step on the floor with our bare feet. Another popular option, which may "shrink" the room, are the corridors that can be placed on the side of the bed as well as on the bottom of it.

Carpets in the kitchen? Yet! It is enough that they are designed for her, so they are resistant to stains and moisture, have a non-slip base, are anti-static and can be washed in the washing machine. Carpets in the kitchen are usually smaller in size and are placed in high traffic areas such as at the entrance, in front of the kitchen counter, sink or oven as well as under the kitchen table.

In the children's room, the bigger the rug, the better! Children often walk barefoot whenever a large rug will protect them from the cold while keeping the room warm. Plus, a big rug means a big surface to play on!
