Do patterned rugs make a space look smaller?
Patterned rugs when dramatically alter the appearance of size and how you feel in it. The wrong patterned rug can make the space feel smaller, visually confusing, and detract attention from what you really want people to focus on in the room. However, the right patterned rug can actually elevate your interior – both visually and experientially. Pattern when used correctly can give you a rug that opens up the room and creates zones that invite you and your family to connect, relax or concentrate depending on the purpose of the space.
The pattern can also prove to be a much-needed visual anchor that roots your design and serves as the central dial for all your furniture, lighting, and accessories. Another factor to consider is the type of pattern you opt for; smaller spaces might benefit from more minimal or large-scale patterns that feel open and inviting whereas larger rooms might benefit from the intricacy and engagement of a more detailed small-scale pattern. London-based rug experts, Riviere Rugs shared their insight commenting on the importance of color when it comes to choosing your patterned rug. “It all depends on the color, darker colors in a small space can make it feel smaller and vice versa," says Eleanor Dykes from Riviere Rugs.
The best place to start is by remembering that the answer to this question is entirely dependent on the size of your space, the design style you want to lean into, and ultimately what appeals to you.
