A Loloi rug can highlight your room’s decor by reinforcing your color scheme, establishing your style, and creating the tone of the room. As you start thinking through your room, it’s important to realize that your rug and decor should work together towards the same goal. When you design with that in mind, you’ll naturally choose a rug that allows your other decor to shine as key parts of the room’s design.
Decorating With a Loloi Rug
With so many rugs out there to choose from, you may be wondering why you should go with a Loloi area rug. To start with, Loloi is a great brand to go with because of their beautiful textiles and devotion to craftsmanship. Their rugs are always quality whether you’re looking for one that is traditional, contemporary, or anywhere in between.
Choosing Which Loloi Rug is Right for You
When you’re choosing your ideal Loloi area rug, it’s important to think through some key areas.
Position: First, determine your room’s layout and where you want to place your rug. If you’re struggling with where to start, take these general ideas into consideration.
Living Room: A large Loloi area rug can be used to establish your main seating area. In these situations, your rug can sit in front of the seats, under their front legs, or further under the chairs. Alternatively, a smaller Loloi rug can define a separate sitting area for more intimate conversation or a morning beverage.
Dining Room: When you add a rug to your dining room, it should be the same shape as the table and be centered beneath it. Plus, be sure that you have about two feet of extra rug on each side/end so there’s room for the chairs.
Bedroom: If your bed is a main focal point in the room, then you can further highlight it by laying a Loloi rug all the way under the bed, under the bottom two-thirds of it, or closer to the foot of the bed. Another idea is to center the rug in the middle of the room if your bed is off to one side.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 Loloi area rugs can provide comfort and style to your sink or stove areas. Aside from that, you can use a Loloi runner rug in those same areas to fulfill those first two goals and create a path.
Bathroom: Similar sized rugs are also used in bathrooms in front of sinks, tubs, or showers. Runners in particular can dress up a double vanity or establish a path.
Outdoors: Loloi also produces outdoor rugs that can be used on patios, decks, porches, or even inside your home. For layout ideas, refer back to similar indoor spaces.
Shape/Size: After the layout is set, you can choose the size and shape of your rug. Rectangular, round, and runner rugs are the three most common shapes, but there are other options too along with different sizes like 5x7, 8x10, and 9x12. Be sure to consider the scale of the room, furniture, and decor when you choose your rug.
Pattern: Loloi rugs come in many different patterns that fall into different interior design styles. You can look at your existing decor for similar imagery and shapes to pair with the decor, or you can shop specific collections by Loloi. Graphite, Ghost, Holland, Layla, Teagan, Olive Charcoal, and other collections are popular, along with ones where they pair up with other designers like Amber Lewis.
Color: Your rug’s color palette will also help you convey your style and tie into the rest of the room’s decor. Every color comes in different shades and combinations, so whether you’re looking for a rug that’s calming or one that’s more of a statement piece, your rug’s color palette can perfectly reinforce your personal style.
