Sisal rugs are more than just durable and beautiful floor covering. They add depth, dimension and excitement to any space. That’s why we’re serving up four ways to take your sisal rug game beyond the mundane with some inspiration on the side. Enjoy!
1. Bring a Big Space Together
Without area rugs, an open floor plan can easily feel like a warehouse instead of a living space. Sisal rugs can help you distinguish living areas by providing boundaries without walls. Not only does this enhance beauty and style, it invokes a warm and welcoming environment.
Sisal rugs are the smartest choice for open spaces because they have varying textures and shades that provide excitement without clashing. Yet, they avoid crossing into the aesthetic boredom that comes with interior design that is overly coordinated.
2. Play with Layers
So you have a rug you love but just haven’t been able to use it. Why? Because it will create the dreaded rug island: It’s just not quite big enough to meet the edges of any furniture without squishing everything together so tightly that you feel claustrophobic.
Sisal rugs to the rescue!
With sisal, you can take that too-small rug to new dimensions. Their neutral tones and durability make them the optimal base for any rug. Nicole Gibbons, blogger and creative director of So Haute, advises allowing at least 12 to 18 inches of space on all sides so you can see the contrast between them.
3. Mix and Match
A room where all of the accents are identical is jarring, sterile, and certainly not a place where we want to spend much time. Yet, a space with clashing rugs, drapes and pillows can be just as uncomfortable.
If you’re unsure of your talent for mixing pattern, but want to avoid the matchy-matchy syndrome, sisal rugs are your answer. Their neutral colors blend perfectly, their textures create compelling interest, and their style will make you look like an interior design whiz.
4. Run for the Border
Want a custom look without paying the high price that often comes with it? Add a border to your sisal rug to bring remarkable drama or subtle intrigue to any room. It’s amazing what an unexpected pop of color will do, just check out the entry way below.
We have the colors and textures to get the precise look you want. Choose from:
- Four binding methods
- Six materials: leather, linen, canvas, cotton, faux leather, or provide your own
- More than 60 colors, though the color choices depend on the materials you choose
Whether your design tastes are urban modern or shabby chic, whether you’re more at home in a warehouse condominium or a classic bungalow, whether you’re a jetsetter or a mom or a both, sisal rugs gives you the flexibility to fit your style.
