It is a common misconception that circular rugs are hard to use in a room because they take up a lot of room, but this is not necessarily so. If you are lucky enough to have a large space in the centre of a room a circular rug does look lovely, but it is quite okay to let one of the edges ‘disappear’ under a sofa, chair or other piece of furniture. You still have the other curved edges which can do a lot to soften a severe look, so if you are stuck with a plain decor which you cannot change, a circular rug would be a good addition.
Many traditional rugs are circular and their designs are specifically changed to allow for this shape. Because of this, you can mix rectangular and circular rugs of traditional design without having to use a different motif. The other way of getting a look which takes the eye from one area of the house to another but in different shaped rugs is to stick with one colour. Various different shapes can be used then, but the single shade will make sure that the room does not look bitty and annoying.
Circular rugs are perfect for bold, modern designs, especially some of the floral ones which use a single ‘fantasy’ blossom as a motif, sometimes offset to one side, or in the middle. Modern rugs are easy to furnish with and they go with any kind of decor, even traditional ones as they make such a firm statement that they can almost be considered works of art in their own right. Rug Zone has a wide choice of modern circular rugs which work well in any size, so you could use them under a desk or table or as a centrepiece to a room.
Because Rug Zone hold such a huge stock, you will always find good discounts and you can probably treat yourself to a bigger rug than you thought was in your budget. With a circular rug it certainly pays to get the biggest you can afford as it fills the space better and doesn’t look skimpy. When buying a circular rug, make sure you measure your room in both directions, because a round rug can be a trip hazard if it impedes a door or needs to be folded to accommodate the size.
