Transform the Texture of Your Home with a Chunky Rug
If there's one thing that almost all of us want in our homes, it's a sense of style and character.
There are plenty of ways to achieve this, and (at least in our opinion) one of the best is to use rugs to create texture. Chunky rugs have always been one of the most popular styles for homes in the UK, and it just so happens that they’re ideal for bringing textural beauty to any room. In today’s post, we’ll find out how.
What makes a chunky rug?
Most people are well aware of the more oft-seen rug piles: flat-woven heavy- and lightweight rugs can be found in many homes. But what sets chunky rugs apart is the sheer size of the strands that comprise the pile itself. Rather than using thin strands of material, a chunky rug will use a tufted pile to create thick and heavy strands for real impact. Not only that, but some rug makers will actually use complete woollen balls joined together to create a different kind of pile. Rugs Direct is home to a wide range of chunky rugs.
The materials used in chunky rugs
Just like the many other rugs on offer here at Rugs Direct, chunky rugs can be found made from a variety of fabrics and materials. However, if you’re looking for a chunky rug that’s also wonderfully soft underfoot, we’d highly recommend that you look for a chunky rug made of pure wool. Examples of this include our range of Tashen chunky rugs which use a colourful blend of woollen fibres to form a tufted pile that’s one of the chunkiest we have on offer. If you’d prefer to explore the funkier end of chunky rugs, why not check out a Soul Soul Multi Rug by Asiatic? This rug features a unique woollen ball construction which is really one of a kind.
How to add texture to your home
Whether or not you’ve chosen to add a chunky rug to a room in your home, you can still create a textured look. By focusing on soft furnishings like cushions, throws, and even the curtains, you can add layering to the interior décor and create a true sense of texture. Of course, there’s no better way to tie all of this together than with a chunky rug – although a shaggy rug might also be suitable too. The choice is yours!
