Embracing Simplicity: Exploring the Allure of Plain Rugs in Modern Home Design
You can never go wrong with plain rugs. Don't let their simplicity fool you. These solid rugs can work well with various textures that patterned rugs can ruin. Choose a bold solid rug, sheepskin, or even a flatweave for a tasteful finish to your décor.
What's So Wonderful about Plain Rugs?
Here are just some reasons why plain rugs are rising in popularity among the masses in homes and offices:
The Minimalist’s Dream
If you prefer more space and are a minimalist at heart, plain solid rugs should be on your shopping list. These can maintain colour palettes depending on their textures. For example, a shaggy or flat weave plain rug can maintain a plain look while adding subtle texture to a space.
Works Well with Patterned Furniture
Patterned furniture can be jarring, but you can subtly muffle the effect with plain rugs. The solid colour will balance out the décor to prevent clashes.
Makes Small Spaces Look Larger
A plain solid rug can open up a small space to the eye. It won't magically expand the room's dimensions, but it will prevent the room from feeling claustrophobic.
How Can Plain Rugs Complement Your Walls and Flooring?
No one wants to lounge around in a small room with heavily patterned furniture and bright walls. It’s too gaudy and uncomfortable. A cramped and crowded room with plain, brightly coloured walls will benefit from lightly coloured plain rugs. If you have to have texture, you can place a large patterned rug underneath to complement it.
Avoid patterns with repeating themes and dense designs. Look for rugs from The-Rugs with airy images that have space between them. Pair these with solid rugs for a striking contrast. There should only be one standout pattern in a small room, providing visual weight. Otherwise, the space will feel unbalanced and have a negative effect.
Patterned and solid rugs look amazing against hardwood and tiled floors but stick with plain rugs if the floor is patterned. You can add multiple patterns in the space, but layering is not recommended. The result will be sensory overload; you may not even want to sit there.
Plain Rugs Lend a Modern, Minimalistic Vibe to Your Home
If done right, a minimalistic décor can elevate rather than take away from your home’s aesthetic. The style prioritises function over form, which makes solid rugs ideal for such spaces. The clean lines make for great Instagram shots too.
Plain rugs at The-Rugs are available in several neutral colours ranging from white and beige to solid black, grey, and brown. These can blend with any interior décor. Use them as blank canvases that make patterned cushions and furniture pop!
While a minimalistic space is spacious enough, a plain rug just adds to its charm. A busy design can take the focus away from the soothing vibe you are going for. Use these rugs to make it feel airy and spacious, the hallmarks of minimalistic design. Create a tranquil space you would love to return to at the end of a busy day. Without busy designs, the eye will be drawn to other design elements, such as your artwork and antique furniture.
