With the weather warming up, summer is well and truly upon us. It’s time to swap those winter woollies for summer ones, dig out the surfboards and pool noodles, and prepare the backyard barbeque!
One way to set your home up for summertime success is to pick out a summer rug. A summer rug will accent the season and help capture the summer feel we all love. Add a little bit of summer into your home with area rugs. They can be the perfect way to brighten up a room and bring a touch of summer into your living space. Here are some of our favourite tips for picking a rug for summer.
Bring the outdoors inside with a floral rug. Modern rugs with patterns inspired by nature are always a summer rug winner, adding a sense of lightness and flow between the indoors and outdoors. As a bonus, you won’t even have to water them!
Look for jute and cotton rugs in summer to add some texture to your design. These rugs exude beachy vibes with their distinctly nautical and aquatic themes.
Splash on the colour. When it comes to summer, our colour palettes consist of light and bright tones, and this palette should extend to your rugs. Lighter colours compliment a summer house well and bring a welcoming feeling to the room. Colours such as green, yellow, red, light blue, and different shades of orange bring a summer pop to a home.
Rag rugs will bring that beachy feeling to life in your home. These rustic rugs ooze summertime fun at the beach with their charming yet rough-around-the-edges appeal. Rag rugs are cost-efficient and lightweight, so they can be moved around easily. In addition, they are easier to clean and are good for picking up anything you may bring in from outside.
Ease of cleaning is essential when picking a summer rug. With the warm weather bringing on more indoor-outdoor flow, choosing a rug that is easy to clean is vital.
Layering is not just for the winter. Use multiple summer rugs to create boundaries and add a hint of playfulness to your home.
