Use an Area Rug to Define a Space

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Area Rugs

The long narrow shape of this urban townhome needs careful planning to turn it into the luxurious and inviting living space shown here.

Certain design choices lead to a space that is clearly delineated by function yet connected by style. The central section – across from the kitchen to the center left – has a lowered ceiling and a band of wooden panels to create a natural separation that doesn’t block the sight lines.

The floors are concrete throughout, but area rugs warm up the space and add dividing lines. The cream-toned rug under the dining table is a good match with the chair cushions, linking this space through the color. The long light fixture and centerpiece emphasize the shape of the space.

A number of other choices also reflect this elongated lower floor. The floating shelf along the paneled wall provides a moment of interest with the graceful vertical sculpture. The white shelf and metallic sculpture stand out against the dark wood. This adds a special touch of design and art to the wide hallway.

The living room at the front of this home uses the sofa to create a natural division of space. Art and another area rug help make the space feel complete and defined. Once again cream plays a major role. This townhouse shows that you can use floor, wall and ceiling changes to create natural breaks between rooms while still allowing the space and views that keep a home feeling large and expansive.
