If you’re fortunate enough to have a home library or den, you probably never want to hang out in another room. Yet, interestingly, those spaces tend to have opposite functions. A study is supposed to help us focus on work, while a den should encourage relaxation. But no matter how you use these spaces, having the right study room & den rug can only make them better!
More About Study Room & Den Rugs
When it comes to choosing the right vintage rug for your home, the first thing you’ll want to establish is the room you’ll want to put it in. After all, most people like to have more formal furnishings in their study or library, while a den can have more simple decorations.
Still, if you have a den full of tasteful wooden furniture, a handmade semi-antique rug would fit right in. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a carpet to complete your sleek, modern home office, you might want to get a patchwork rug instead. Those kinds of carpets are bound to look like abstract art on your floor.
Which Vintage Rug is Best for the Study Room or Den?
If you’re looking for a vintage rug that suits your style, knowing what we have in our collection might help.
Chaput kilims and other distressed carpets in our store would look great in a more casual setting. However, a distressed Turkish rug could look excellent in a more elaborate setting as well. If your furniture is centered around a bookshelf, TV, or pool table, consider getting a medallion rug. That kind of circular design would highlight whatever you put on the carpet.
Where Should you Place your Vintage Rug in a Study Room or Den?
Naturally, the placement of your vintage rug will ultimately depend on the general layout of the room. If you want an Oushak rug for your home office, study, or library, you can put your desk on it. Specifically, having a carpet under the chair should prevent the chair legs or wheels from wearing away at the flooring.
Conversely, if you’re looking for a Turkish rug for your den, you’ll want to consider where people spend the most time. For example, if you have a pool table, your carpet should be large enough to surround it. If nothing else, it’ll make your games feel much more elegant.
Which Sizes of Vintage Rugs are Best for Study Rooms and Dens?
If you want the carpet to cover the entire floor under your desk in your study, you’ll want to start by measuring the desk first. Once you have those dimensions, add a couple of feet to it as chair leeway. Then, find the carpets that are in that size range by using the filters on our site!
Lastly, if you’re looking to cover a larger area like the middle of your den, you don’t have to limit yourself to getting one huge carpet. Instead, consider layering several area rugs — especially ones with different patterns! Stacking a bright, patterned rug on top of a darker carpet can make the room look charmingly eclectic.
