String carpet: photos and show to use it for decorating

Warm, cosy and welcoming, the thread rug will add charm and beauty to any corner of the home.

Although the thread carpet is an old acquaintance of Brazilian homes, recently it has received more modern interpretations and has become the favourite model of trendy decorations such as Boho and Scandinavian styles.

Another advantage of the thread rug is that you can make it yourself with simple materials and a well-explained step-by-step guide as you will see in this post here.

Types of string rugs and how to use them in decoration

Rectangular string rug

The rectangular string rug is one of the most used. Its versatility is enormous, as it can be used both as a treadmill in the kitchen and as a rug on the side of the bed.

Depending on the size, the rectangular rug still fits in the bathroom and toilet and even under study and work tables.

Square string rug

The square string rug, in turn, is suitable for larger areas with more space. In this case, it can be used in the centre of the living room or under the dining table.

The outdoor area is another interesting place to bet on a square string rug if you have the space.

Round twine rug

Delicate and with a romantic air, the round string rug is the face of children’s rooms, but it also fits very well in living room centres and under dining tables.

Unlike the square rug, the round rug ends up being more suitable for smaller areas, creating a greater sense of space in the environment.

oval twine rug

The oval twine rug is a middle ground between round and rectangular. But, while the rectangular model adapts to modern environments, the oval shape is perfect for spaces with a more classic aesthetic.

Use this string rug model on the side of the bed, in the kitchen and the bathroom.

Half moon string rug

Another model of string rug that is always successful is the half moon. It is perfect to use at the entrance of the house close to the door, in the kitchen cupboard or next to the bed.

The important thing is that it has a wall or obstacle that it can be leaned against to form the half moon and stand out in the environment.

Raw, embroidered or coloured?

The most used string rug is undoubtedly the raw colour, an almost beige tone, and very light.

However, there are other very beautiful string rug versions out there, such as embroidered and coloured ones. And which one to choose?

To solve this dilemma, look at your surroundings. Which style predominates? Is he modern? Rustic? Classic?  Modern environments combine with raw string rugs or in neutral colours, such as black, grey and closed shades of blue, for example.

A rustic environment, on the other hand, is even more charming with a string rug in an earthy tone, such as mustard, moss green or even the natural raw tone.

The classics already fit better with more detailed string rugs and in colours such as beige, brown and shades of Off White.

But if the intention is to use a crochet rug in the children’s room, then don’t hesitate and go straight for the colour options, with two or even more colours.

In this case, it is also worth betting on models of string rugs in different formats, such as hexagonal, stars and silhouettes of animals.
