White: A classic with a timeless appeal
In our culture, white is the most perfect colour of all. White symbolises innocence, purity and clarity as well as elegance and wisdom. Unlike most other colours, there aren’t any negative associations either. When we think of the colour white, our inner mind thinks of fairytale snowy landscapes, alpine glaciers, romantic wedding dresses and cooing doves. White has always played an important role in interior design. No wonder, since white furniture, curtains and rugs make a room look brighter and more spacious. White is also completely timeless and always in fashion. The colour is not subject to trends and really does look good in any living style. Whether you prefer your home to be modern, rustic, extravagant or country house style, white always blends in beautifully in your rooms. A white rug is especially popular. On the one hand, it gives off an air of cosiness whilst looking refined and elegant at the same time.
White rugs in the living room and dining room
If you want to turn your living and dining room into a real oasis of well-being, a white rug is exactly the right choice. Its pure and innocent look has a pleasantly calming effect and helps slow things down. Here you can sit back and relax in the evenings or on weekends with a good book, in front of the TV and, of course, with a delicious meal. Since white is wonderfully unobtrusive and reserved, it shows off your furniture and accessories to their full potential. If the weather is ever dismal and gloomy, a white rug can bring more light into the room which is also good for your soul. Bad moods don’t stand a chance with the colour white! By the way, you don’t need to worry about spills in the dining room either, since white rugs are surprisingly easy to care for. Modern patterns also ensure that your white rug is resistant to stains.
White rugs in the kitchen and hallway
Fitted kitchens can often seem hard and oppressive. To counteract this, add a touch of lightness to your kitchen with a white rug. You’ll be thrilled with the result: want to bet that cooking and baking are suddenly much more fun? The hallway, on the other hand, often has a narrow and dark existence. There usually aren’t any windows here either, so no natural light enters the narrow passageway. To help this part of your home feel more cosy, put down a white rug or runner. It visually adds more width and creates a friendly ambience in your hallway. Your guests will quickly come to appreciate being welcomed in an inviting atmosphere. And early in the morning, as you flit barefoot across the hallway to the bathroom, a white rug under your feet will feel wonderfully soft to walk on!
White rugs in different colours, styles and patterns
Whether monochromatic in brilliant white or with a cheerful pattern, a high-quality rug makes a sophisticated statement throughout your home. For the popular country house or cottage style, a hand-woven rug with a natural charm is especially suitable. A short-pile rug with a graphic pattern or a relaxed vintage look makes a wonderful impression in a modern living room. If you prefer a retro style, which is extremely popular at the moment, choose a white rug with a typical pattern from the 1970s. Soft and fluffy runner sets are recommended for the bedroom and the hallway making you feel like you’re floating on clouds! If you prefer a more unusual look, white rugs with 3D patterns have been top of the pops for some time now.
