It’s a midwinter night. You’ve just come home from dinner, your bones still chilled from the icy foreshore breeze. You change into your comfy clothes, pull the blanket off your bed and meander over to the couch. And as you walk around your kitchen, through your living room, you feel warmth under your feet. Pure comfort. It’s your brand-new rug, bold and plush and oh-so soft.

Decorating your home with warm, luxurious rugs is a great way to prep for Canberra’s winter, but there’s more to a rug than meet the eye. They can help divide a room, lift the mood, and provide a sense of warmth.

Here are a few ways rugs can lift your home.

  1. Defining the Space

Whether it’s a one-bedroom studio apartment, or a lavishly long dining room, a well-placed rug or two can completely transform the space. In smaller spaces, a rug that complements the style of your home can provide a focal point for other designs to play off, making the space feel larger than it is. And in bigger spaces, using more than one rug is a great way to add variety and breathe new life into a space; just be sure to play with the shapes and sizes.

  1. Comfort and Warmth.

Whether you’ve got tiles, wooden floors, or even if your home is entirely floored with carpet, a lush rug underfoot can brighten up your home and provide a constant, reliable sense of warmth. Don’t believe me? Head to Domyane and check out their massive range and see for yourself. They have all different shapes and sizes, with everything from indoor to outdoor rugs on show.

  1. It Really Ties the Room Together

The Dude wasn’t lying. A good rug really can tie the room together. It can be the anchor, taking your room’s design and elevating it to the next level. Just follow the colour scheme of your room, play with different shapes, and use a rug that complements other layers in the room.

Styles are always changing, and there’s always something new to see, so go see the range of rugs at Domayne today.
