Have you ever taken the time to reflect on things you thought were cool? Years later, do some of those ideas make you shudder a little? We’re right there with you.
In 2018, a Houzz study found that 48% of participants planned on decorating their homes. Why this number isn’t 100%, we’re unsure. We specialize in custom cut rugs. area rugs, braided rugs, luxury rugs. Whatever you need, we have you — and your floor — covered. However, we won’t deny that there have been some historical design flaws in the world of rugs and we’re here to address them so those unfortunate histories don’t repeat themselves.
This has always been a mystery to us. We love rugs, but we know they don’t belong in a bathroom. For sanitary reasons we’re certain you can reason without us having to be explicit, this once-upon-a-time carpeting fad needs to be laid to rest. Some things in the design world make comebacks, but this is one we’ll fight tooth-and-nail to keep out of the rotation for good.
Carpeting on places that aren’t floors
Stemming from the past propensity to puts carpets in bathrooms, the same era thought it was cool to put them on walls. Even ceilings. A decorative, luxury rug hanging on a wall is artistic and fun. It can give a museum-esque feel to a room. Carpeting that just continues from the floor and creeps up the wall is not cool. Keep your carpets on the floor and everything is going to be fine.
That poor rug that needs to be retired
Whether an outdoor rug or an indoor rug, there’s always that one that needs to go. Luxury rugs or not, they don’t last forever. Knowing when your rug has gone from aged-stylish to gross-filth-sponge is supremely important. Keeping one around that’s run its course is never chic.
There aren’t many rules to successfully laying rugs, but these few pillars are strongly suggested. If you follow those guidelines, your stylistic and creative choices beyond them are totally up to you. At least you now know that, no matter what, carpeted walls are not an option.
