Recycling is always a top priority. Every year billions of kilograms of rugs and carpets are discarded, often ending up in landfills. Instead, give your rug new life by having it professionally cleaned and then using it in a different setting. This can instantly create an interesting focal point and offer depth to your interior. Do you have a beautiful rug that is worn or stained in certain areas and cannot be repaired. Get innovative and use it to create a small reading nook in your house, place some floor cushions and home accessories strategically, and nobody will be any wiser!
Rugs are usually placed in the centre of the room, and are somewhat of a focal point for furniture arrangement. Change it up by moving the rug to a different location, near a door or window, against the wall, under the new armchair. Let your imagination run wild!
