Why a Rug?

We are passionate about rugs. That is why we have our own exclusive rug collections with Surya and Livabliss and believe that almost every space we design needs a rug. We add them outside and in, in most rooms in the house from the kitchen and living room to the bed and bathrooms. Today we are sharing five reasons why you too should  add rugs to the spaces your are designing in your own home!

Your Room’s Foundation

Adding a rug to a room instantly makes it feel more anchored and grounded. It serves as a visual focal point, helping to tie together the decor and furniture. Without a rug furniture can seem like it’s awkwardly floating in the space.

Less Noise

Adding a rug to your home can really dial down the noise. It softens footsteps, which is a lifesaver if you have little ones running around. Plus, it helps block outside sounds and echos, giving your space a quieter overall vibe.

Money Saver

Rugs offer insulation and help regulate humidity, keeping your home cozy in winter and cool during the summer. Over time, they can even help cut down on heating expenses.

Cleaner Home

Rugs catch dirt and other debris before entering your carpeting or floors. This protects the harder to replace floor surfaces and keeps them clean and tidy longer.

Affordable Upgrade

Rugs can change the whole look and feel of a space. It can be just the upgrade needed to love your home again and give you a noticeable change without repainting the walls or buying new furniture.
