Light side vs Dark side – What to consider when decorating a room

When choosing a rug to suit your space, a very important thing to keep in mind is the appearance of the rug from opposite sides – the light side versus the dark side. The carpet appears lighter or darker due to the direction of the carpet pile. The colours can appear drastically different from each side – thus directionality is crucial when arranging furniture or designing the feel of the room. There is no rule in terms of placement – as each carpet varies due to the yarn content and is very design specific. Often, for example in a wool & silk rug, the light side view of silk threads is more prominent. In the end, the design dictates the optimal placement to tie in all elements of the room.
