Why We Love Rugs
Rugs are a great way to create cohesion between furniture and homewares. They can protect flooring, and add a touch of sophistication to even a sparsely decorated space.
Rugs are even fantastic insulators that are going to keep your home nice and warm, especially in the colder months. And, if you’re an allergy sufferer, you’ll love this one – they’re great at trapping allergens, preventing them from floating through the air. What’s not to love?
And while there is a plethora of great rugs in Nunawading, choosing the right one can be a daunting task. That’s why we’ve called on an expert: with over 12 years of experience in the interior industry, Kylie is the master of making rooms look and feel great.

Kylie’s Rug Tips
“Ok, I’m going to let you all in on a little secret, DecoRug Nunawading has an amazing range of on-trend rugs in various sizes and absolutely great prices. I’ve worked with lots of rug retailers and these guys are truly doing great things. If you are on the hunt for rugs in Nunawading, they are the place to go!
Surprisingly, a rug can transform a room – but you need to get the basics right first. Here are a few of my tips:
1. Make sure the rug is big enough for the space. The most common size is 2m x 3m, I use this size in almost all living spaces. I like to sit the furniture on the rug. That means couch legs on the rug. So, take the time to measure your space.
2. Contrast is key, if you have a dark sofa, it’s best to go for a lighter rug and vice versa. This helps define the space.
3. I love to use cow hides, especially in small spaces or living spaces that are irregular in size. They help define the space and can look pretty groovy. Consider a cowhide when space is at a premium and you don’t have the traditional rectangular or square-shaped living space.”
