The mats give more charm to the decor of the home, along with the pillows, curtains and other decorating accessories make the environment more welcoming, but it is not always easy to choose the carpet right, and match colors, styles, different sizes and shapes, because there are many options even!
There are certain guidelines that architects and designers tend to apply at the time of choosing the carpet for the living room – and like all rules, this also has its exceptions!
Most of the projects of decoration of the living rooms lead rugs rectangular with neutral colors, this is because the carpets rectangular give more easy to combine with the rest of the furniture which are generally rectangular in addition to being more austere in relation to rugs round.
The neutral colors in turn combine with any other color, then it is always a move wise to use rugs discrete that can adapt well to any type of decor.
The carpets round are more suitable for the areas of the entrance (hall), children’s rooms, dining tables round, or to enclose small spaces, such as the corner of reading of the house. Of course there are living rooms that call for a carpet round, when the sofa is a half moon, for example.
In the living room, the rugs need to be very comfortable, after all who does not love to lie on a rug full of pillows to watch that movie in the family? Or play with children, cats and dogs on the carpet. To be able to stand with bare feet, feeling the texture of the soft fibres caressing gently the feet.
Then the carpet is no longer an accessory merely aesthetic to become part of the functionality of the space of the living room.
The choice of the carpet is always made after the distribution of the furniture in the room, as a rule the mats can be features one-piece, getting under all the living room furniture: sofas, armchairs, centre tables and corner, etc; or even stay with one end caught under the couch, both to ensure an aesthetic balance, as for the mat does not become slippery.
The correct way is to leave the tip at least 30 cm under the couch and leave a surplus of 30 cm at both sides of the sofa. If you have tables corner this left side can be greater. Of course, in some projects, the rug is just under the center table that ends up pinning the carpet, or even released without any mobile top – exceptions to the rule!
The mats that are larger are much more expensive and difficult to find that the carpets of medium size, one solution is to combine more than one mat, creating an overlap of colours and prints with mats smaller and thus save on the purchase of rugs. However, rooms with mats overlapping, are not indicated nor the elderly, nor children. Alias in general, rugs are not recommended for the elderly.
Another care that must be taken when choosing your carpet is the accumulation of mites, people with allergies should look for materials antiallergic and carpets with low relief.
At the time, and combine the colors of the rugs with the décor, look for give preference to neutral shades, but if you like colourful rugs use colors found in your decor, or colors complementary or analogous. If you mix different prints always use is formula.
