We all have that one room that we wished was bigger. This is not so because we want to stuff too many things in it but even after reducing the furniture, it feels smaller. It is that cramped feeling that we want to get rid of. It might not always be possible to physically increase the size of the space, but you can always find design-led ways to make the same space bigger and brighter.
Contrary to what most people think your flooring choice is key to how the rooms look and feels. The right kind of floor can give the illusion of more space and size.
Get rugs to fill the space
Area rugs or small carpets are the best way of guiding the eyes of the on-lookers onto the places you want. They provide lots of visual focal points for the eye to catch on. With rugs, you can add a lot of character to the floor thereby making it seem busier and spacious than it actually is.
A trick often used by architects and interior designers to make a room look bigger is by choosing to put in stripes in the décor. A rug with stripes on it is a great idea if you intend to make your room look bigger and give the décor a more clean-line approach.
Use light-colored rugs
The work of light colors is to brighten up a room and its décor. Rugs in tones of beige, sand, and taupe will make your room seem bigger and sprawling. A collection like Chaos Theory, Project Error, Hidden, and Urban Pause by Jaipur Rugs has a number of rugs in these colors. They are ideal to make a room look bigger and plusher.
With dark colors and patterned floors, you make the eye look inward thereby giving it a narrower look. It is always the lighter shades that make a room stand out.
Rules for textured carpets
You can use certain textured carpets to make your room look bigger. Flecks or cut-and-pile textures will help you achieve your goal as long as you do not go all out with geometric patterns. The Aakar collection at Jaipur Rugs is a classic example of geometric patterns set in a contemporary way.
You also need to remember that the patterns that you choose on your rugs are not too large. If you place rugs with big patterns your room will look crowded and small. So, make sure you scale the patterns you use on your area rugs to make your room look bigger. The more carpet that is visible the better.
Round rugs to the rescue
A round rug is a very interesting way of making a room look bigger. It will not add another rectangle to the room and beautifully create a connection between your furniture. Generally, odd-shaped rugs are a great way of adding character to a room’s décor. While decorating with rugs consider buying unique shapes like Jaipur Rugs’ ‘Pink Perspective’ from the Jaipur Wunderkammer collection by Matteo Cibic or Concoction by Shantanu Garg for a bold yet understated appeal with its graphic depiction of Jaipur’s sundial or match a large circular rug to an open-plan space to make an effortless styling choice. You can also get your odd-shaped rugs custom-made to suit your space.

Always choose handmade rugs for durability
