What are some things to keep in mind when designing with area rugs?


Custom area rugs offer many choices allowing for maximum personal expression. Choose from our wide selection of running line carpets and then define the size, border or binding, color and pattern of the rug to best suit your design goals. There are many options for materials to finish custom rugs, from textured leather, linen, to cotton.


Area rugs are a key design element in many beautiful spaces. One great thing about custom area rugs is that they can be made exactly the size you need-whether it's a rug that fills an entire room, stopping 12 inches from the walls, for example, or a rug that defines a dining or conversation area within a larger space.


There's no standard rule for how big an area rug should be, though there are some considerations to keep in mind. The ideal size of the rug will be driven by the furniture arrangement in the room. In the case where a rug goes under a dining table and chairs, the rug should extend beyond the edge of the table at least 32 to 36 inches. This will ensure that all four legs of the dining chairs stay on the rug when people are sitting in the chairs.


Sometimes it's unavoidable that a piece of furniture will have two legs on an area rug and two legs off. Keep in mind in this case that if the rug has a thick pile, you might need to put something under two of the legs to make the piece of furniture level. Also, remember that all area rugs should have a good pad underneath them to prevent people from slipping and also to prevent excessive wear on the rug.


As pictured below, from left to right: 

1) Non-Skid Padding is a great backing option that protects from abrasion, extends the life and stability of the rug and also serves the purpose of keeping the rug in place (indoor use only). 


2) Outdoor friendly cushion helps offer more comfort to walk on as well as extends the life and stability of the rug. 


3) Felt Backing protects a wood floor from abrasion (indoor use only). All 3 options are also great for hiding any fabrication on the back of the rug.

5 Simple Steps to Choosing Your New Floor


Although choosing a new floor for your home can be a stressful, hair-pulling journey, it doesn't have to be! Check out our top 5 tips to help you find the best floor for your space, your needs, and your style.


1. What style suits your home and your personal taste? 


Classic and traditional? Shabby chic? Contemporary? Modern?   

Have a look at our Inspiration pages for style ideas, create mood boards, and play around with our wide range of floors in different room settings with our interactive room viewer, Floorstyle.


2. What look are you after - woodstone or something Iconic and different?


From distressed and hand-crafted timbers and natural stone looks to unique mosaic and pebble designs, we offer such a wide range of options that you're bound to find the perfect floor to suit your space and your style. What's more, no matter what design you go with all of our floors are highly durable, easy to care for, and guaranteed for many, many years to come.


3. How much natural light does the room get? Which color tones would suit your room best?


Lighter wood planks and stone tiles bring a fresh, spacious feel to living spaces and can help brighten up the darker areas of your home with fewer windows, while mid-toned wood planks and stone tiles can be a good match to neutral color schemes as well as adding warmth. If you want to add rich depth and a bit of luxury to your space, darker wood tones and stones will help you get just the look you're going for.


4. What plank or tile sizes would best suit your space?


If you have a larger space to fill, consider the larger tiles of the Opus collection or wider wood planks available in the Van GoghOpus and Art Select ranges. If you're working in a smaller space or if you'd like to achieve a more traditional look, try Da Vinci's narrow wood planks or smaller Knight Tile products.


5. Do you want to define your space with unique details?


With Karndean Designflooring it's easy to personalize your floor with a wide range of design strips, borders and other custom design options.


Once you've found the perfect look for your home, contact E.D.'s Interiors to get expert advice and help you through the process, including providing a professional floor installer to recreate the look you're going for in your home.
