Rug Options for Smaller Spaces

Smaller space? No problem, size can’t be the reason your space looks less beautiful. Since, with the lesser space, the more you can focus on the best parts of it! If you are designing a Studio interior or a bedroom with not that much of an area, we could help you choose the right rug to make you feel a bit cozy and relaxed after all the hard work in designing the room.

Here are a few tips to put your mind at ease when buying the best rug for a smaller space: 

Choose Accordingly 

Yes, we suggest you refrain from buying a solid or striped carpet for a small bedroom, or an over-stylized and super-expensive one for a Studio space. You’ve got to be precise about the rug design choices accordingly. For a home, a more delicate and over-textured rug works great with a lot of colors and theoretically, any design will work. In contrast, the trick doesn’t work in an office or smaller Studio, so beware! 

Don’t Go Too Dark

You already have a smaller space to make an impact on the rooms ambiance, so there’s no need to over-experiment for a little space available. If there are sofas and chairs around, simply install and brighter rug or floral design with bright tones and a lot of open space to spare, it looks relieving. That said, neutral colors may seem great for an office setting, but follow our advice here and never get a solid color, try textured design for a bit life in the colorless scheme!

Black and White

This color combination always works for a small or medium setting, if you don’t have much choices or can’t decide? Try a B&W striped rug and it will never look bad or out of place. Most of the European apartment settings prefer black and white over any of the above color schemes, Black and White is a classy yet bold combination for a smaller space.

How Rugs Are Made: From Textile to Finishing Touches 

Handmade rugs take extreme labor and time, from collecting wool from sheep skin to packing the end product. The main producers of handmade rugs and carpets are developing nations of Central and South Asia with its robust rug industry. The hard work and time it takes to complete an area rug is anywhere from 5 months to 15 months on average for a single artisan. With the more intricate patterns and designs, the longer it takes to complete the rug.

Here is a step-by-step process of rug making from textile to the finishing touches:

Step One:

In the beginning stage the wool is extracted from sheep and is fragmented. The best wool is selected for the next step i.e. carding. The wool is further disjointed in the carding process, sand and pebbles are removed if they are present. 

Step Two:

The second stage includes spinning the carded wool and transferring to a hand operated spinning machine or “Charkha” as it is called in South Asia, which is used to create yarn from the fragmented wool. The then produced yarn is separated to fiber lengths usually 3-6 inches in length. 

Step Three:

The third stage consists of washing the yarn with special detergents to remove any dust particles. After washing, it is then hung up with exposure to the sun to ensure it is completely dried before it is dyed. The dyeing process is significant as it determines how the rug will look. In a handmade weaving process, no chemicals are used in the coloring process, rather a slower vegetable dyeing agent is used that fades to the desired color with a single wash. Multiple washing cycles are processed with enough heat to complete the dying process. 

Step Four:

Now, the dyed yarn is left out to dry. It is then converted into balls or spools for weaving. Now, they are woven on vertical poles and are tightly suspended horizontally. After weaving, the fiber is trimmed to appropriate length to start carpet making process. 

Step Five:

Once the carpet is made, it is washed again and then dried in the sunlight for a week or more.

Final Stage:

The finished product is trimmed and made symmetrical in final touches, it is then rolled and packed for delivery to the rug market across the globe!
