A Gan rug can highlight your room’s decor by fitting in with the existing color palette, establishing a consistent tone, and creating a stunning style. A rug should never take away from your decor; it should allow each decorative element to shine as a part of the room’s overarching design. When that’s your perspective, you can design a room that feels cohesive and masterfully put together.
Decorating With a Gan Rug
When they’re not creating stunning, unique patterns, Gan rugs are going outside the norm and creating shaped rugs that feature designs unlike any other. Their one of a kind presentation of style is paralleled only with their extreme attention to quality with handmade rugs that are made to stand against the test of time and present outstanding durability and texture.
Choosing Which Gan Rug is Right for You
Gan rugs cover such a wide territory in terms of designs, color palettes, shapes, and other aspects of rugs, so you may be wondering how to find one that’s right for you. Start your search right by considering these key categories.
Position: Early on, it’s important to determine your room’s layout and how your rug will fit within that space. These general ideas will guide you along the way.
Living Room: Since Gan area rugs are so unique, you can use them to define your main seating area or a smaller space. When you use a rug with your main seating, you have the choice to layer it with the furniture or set it right in front of the seats. The same applies to other areas of the room you may want to set up for morning coffee or reading.
Dining Room: Whenever you place a rug beneath the dining room table, it’s essential to give enough space for the chairs to be comfortably moved around on the rug. Two or three feet of excess will give you plenty of room to push your chairs in and out and show off the rug’s style.
Bedroom: If your bed is the central focal point of the room, you can further accentuate it by layering a rug with the bed. Your Gan area rug can be all the way under the bed, under the bottom two-thirds of it, or closer to the foot of the bed. If your bed is off to one side of the room, try centering a rug in the middle of the room itself to create that visual interest.
Kitchen: You can add both style and practicality to your kitchen when you use 2x3 or 3x5 Gan rugs in front of a sink or stove. Alternatively, use a Gan runner rug to cover a longer stretch and provide comfort/style to those same areas.
Bathroom: Bathrooms will use similar sized rugs to the kitchen. 2x3/3x5 rugs can be placed in front of a tub, shower, or sink while a Gan runner rug is ideal along a double vanity.
Outdoors: You can extend your style outwards with a Gan outdoor rug on your deck, patio, or porch. For layout inspiration, look back at similar indoor spaces.
Shape/Size: Once you know your room’s layout, you can finalize the size and shape of your rug. Both of these aspects depend on the size of the room and how you plan on layering your rug with the furniture, so be sure to look at your specific situation to determine what fits best. Gan is best known for its uniquely shaped rugs, and those certainly add in a big statement, but be sure that the rug doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the decor either! After all, design is all about balance.
Pattern: Aside from making uniquely shaped rugs, Gan also produces rugs that feature stunning and versatile designs. You choose how bold you want the pattern to be as it relates to the rest of the room and the shape of the rug so that the room doesn’t feel overwhelming or too busy. Also check out specific collections from Gan to give you some more ideas. Hoot, ply, kilim, and other collections cater to different styles and looks, so you can find one that works for you.
Color: Last but certainly not least, it’s important to consider your rug’s color palette. You can find neutral tones like beige and black along with bold colors like blue, teal, yellow, coral, and so many others. Remember, your rug’s color palette should tie into the rest of the room’s scheme and create your desired tone.
