interior design planning the right carpet for your living, dining or bed room


Carpets are not only room accessories, acoustic miracle weapons and foot caressers, but are also ideal for structuring rooms and creating the right ambience. Carpets form islands, especially in large rooms, and combine seating furniture into homely units. The right size is decisive for the desired effect. When planning, it is essential to consider various factors in different areas:

The living room is the heart of the house and stands for atmosphere and comfort. This comfort zone often combines various pieces of furniture into an island of seating furniture, couch table, side table and carpet. With enough space, the spaciousness of the room is emphasised with a carpet that is large enough to comfortably accommodate all furniture.

If the living room is a little smaller, the carpet should be smaller as well. For this purpose, only the front legs of the seating furniture are placed on the carpet to create a greater feeling of space.

A carpet in the dining room needs nerves of steel. There is a simple formula when planning a carpet for the dining table: The distance from the edge of the table to the edge of the carpet should be at least 70 cm so that you do not get caught on the edge when moving the chairs.

Your day will start off even better if you set foot on a pleasantly soft carpet in the morning. There are several options if you wish to have a carpet in your bedroom: For a large bedroom, it is advisable to place the bed and the bedside tables entirely on the carpet. An even-wide edge is particularly harmonious. The width of the bedside tables, for example, can be used for orientation.

For a smaller bedroom, choose a slightly smaller carpet so that only the front legs of the bed are placed on the carpet.

The hallway is the business card of the house and gives a first impression of the residents. It should be inviting and build a bridge between the living and outdoor areas. If you want a carpet in the hallway, you should make sure to set up a sufficient “clean walk area” between the front door and the carpet to protect your carpet from moisture and dirt.

The size and shape of a hallway carpet should be chosen according to the dimensions of the room. It is important that the front door and any other doors can be opened easily and that the carpet lies flat on the floor and does not become a tripping hazard. In the ideal case you subtract approx. 1.20 metres from the length of the corridor. You should leave at least 20 to 25 cm space to the sides.
