Comments Off on How To Match the Rugs In Your Bendigo Home


Brimming with history, impeccable art and architecture, the homes at Bendigo bring out the sophistication and convenience of an ideal living. But if there is one element that can add more warmth and comfort to your Bendigo home it is an elegant and perfectly styled rug. Rugs are the perfect styling element that can simply elevate the beauty of your home. But the tricky part is how to pull out the top-notch look of your home using rugs. So, here are few tips on how to match rugs to make any open floor plan or unusual angles of your home look more cohesive and functional.

1.    Choose Colour Compatible Pieces of Rugs

Nothing looks more harmonious and pleasing than the look that a complementary colour pairing of rugs can offer. A mix of warm hues with cooler colour tones makes the job right. Consider the colour pairing such as red and green, yellow and purple, blue and orange, or just any complementary piece of rugs that works for your home decor. They make appealing contrasts, giving more light and visibility to the adjoining room.

2.    Double or Triple up the Right Rug

If you can’t find colour contrast pairs of rugs, keep it simple and elegant by adding more pieces of the same matching rugs. Find out one rug that blends in with the home decor, upholstery, or colour tones of your home, and repeat it at different corners or rooms. By doing so, you will create a well-distinguished space with harmony and light. You can also get various dimensions of the same rug to suit your dining, kitchen, or hallways to get a stunning contemporary look.

3.    Bring Out the Statement Rug

Adding character and elegance to your home is much easier with adding a statement piece of rug. It requires experimenting with bold and vibrant colours or patterns that match the theme or decor of your home. A perfect statement rug can accentuate the essence of your home by subtly balancing with the other elements and yet creating a striking and unparalleled look.

4.    Mix and Match Patterned Rugs of the Same Colour

Mixing patterned rugs of the same colour is a classic way of pulling out the elegance of any open area. You can go for bold colours or keep it simple to neutral tones for a subtle or outrageous look. The colours complement each other, helping you create a lively ambience and a smooth flow.  However, it is vital to consider the scales and patterns of the rugs to attain a pleasing atmosphere.

5.    Mix and Match Patterned Rugs of the Same Style

If you are up for a bold and daring look, matching patterned rugs of the same style is sure to complement your style. Oriental rugs are the best options to play with, as they can bring out the charm effortlessly. The extraordinary embroidery detailing, and motifs plays down the colour, not making them too dramatic. 

6.    Play With Consistent or Different Textures of Rugs

Mixing different materials and textures of rugs can give a whole different look to your home decor. They create space and a distinct partition in an open area as long as the other visual elements of your home decor are matched or balanced out.

7.    Choose Rugs of Different Sizes, Colours and Patterns

You can be fearless when it comes to throwing different textures and patterns to coordinate area rugs in your home. Besides, layering is a great technique to add more depth and character. You can go from fluffy rugs to hand-woven woollen rugs of any size, colour, and patterns to create your own style.
