Have you ever worn a horizontal striped shirt and wondered why you looked a little wider than usual? This same concept carries over to interior decoration!
Striped patterns on your floors work the same way as they do on our clothing - visually lengthening and widening. Depending on whether you want the room to appear wider or longer will dictate how you lay the rug.
To lengthen your room you will lay the rug with the stripes vertically.
For the appearance of extra width in a room you will lay the rug with the stripes running horizontally.
Visit The Rug Establishment showrooms to view the current luxury striped rugs, or create your own custom striped rug.
