Scandinavian (Scandi) rugs are a perfect fit for any home, especially minimalist homes. Made up of minimal and basic designs, as well as neutral colours, you will surely find them in many light themed and minimalist houses. A Scandi rug can fit in any room in your house, thanks to the fact that they come in all sorts of shapes, you can fit them in any corner and around any object if you get the right one. Here are a few tips for some places that you can throw a Scandi rug in many rooms of your house.
For the living room, you have a couple of options to put a Scandi rug without it looking out of place. The first place that you can put your Scandinavian rug in the living room is under the coffee table in the center of the room. This is a great place to put the rug as it can protect the floor under the rug from spills if those happen and can also prevent the coffee table from slipping or moving around on the floor. The coffee table will also help your Scandi rug from sliding all over the room, which is especially useful if you have hardwood floors.
Another place that you can put a Scandi rug in your living room is in front of your couch. This only works in certain living room setups, so make sure that it looks nice before deciding that you are going to buy and use a Scandi rug in front of your couch. The perks of doing this are a comfortable place to put your feet as you get up from watching some TV, as well as giving your pet a nice place to lay down near you if your pet isn’t allowed on the furniture.
In the bedroom a Scandi rug can look great as a rug in the centre of your room. The neutral colours will help brighten up your room as well, since the lighter colours will reflect the light and make your room seem more vibrant and alive. The rug can also serve as a great way to wake up and not have to put your feet on the cold and hard floor, especially in the wintertime before you put on your slippers.
In the kitchen, it’s a little hard to put a Scandinavian rug down, as they can be a little hard to clean and aren’t worth the effort of being in the kitchen. However, if you have a glass cabinet that shows off some of your finer dining pieces, then placing a Scandi rug in front of that can make the place look and feel more elegant, without having to try too hard. The rug can also serve as a protective barrier between the plates and glasses in the event that you drop one when you are pulling them out.
Other Great Places to Put One
Putting a long and skinny Scandinavian rug in front of a set of bookshelves is a great way to add a little bit of flair to your home. It looks great and makes the bookshelves more inviting, so you can get on with those books you’ve been putting off reading.
Having a long rug in the entryway to your house is another great place to have a rug. Having any sort of rug here makes your home feel more inviting and a safe place to have friends over. The only downside of this is having to clean up the dirt that inevitably gets tracked in.
