The fusion between Japanese style Zen design with Scandinavian design, Japandi, makes it the perfect addition to any home that loves minimalist design, like me! The neutral colour palette of the Japandi style is so simple and elegant, and it works brilliantly with clean lines, natural elements and the concept of beauty in imperfection.
So when you’re designing your living room or bedroom, you’ll soon realise that you need a grounding piece of decor. Sometimes this can be a large piece of wall art. But in Japandi, you’ll need a beautiful rug that is full of texture. To create the ultimate, cosy, luxurious, soft environment, you’re seeking.
You can find these rugs in a wide range of rugs in different sizes or forms–making them versatile enough for your needs no matter what they may be.

When it comes to the benefits of Japandi,
what comes to mind?
As we can see, the advantages of this approach include the creation of a lovely, quiet space that is also light and airy. If you like bright colours like blues, yellows, and reds, the Japandi trend may not be for you because it favours muted tones.
Japanese design and Scandi diverge greatly in their use of wood tones. Japan’s ability to experiment with contrast is one of its best features. Using neutral colours will result in a peaceful and restful atmosphere. When dealing with large patterns or colours, it can feel like we’re being drained. Using Japandi is a great way to bring tranquillity to a room, and it’s easy to see why. We’re looking for muted colours and bringing nature indoors by using natural woods and organic shapes.
Because Japanese aesthetics and Scandinavian minimalism are the parents of Japandi, it’s important to decorate with these key elements in mind. Simple pieces of furniture

How to stop rugs moving on carpet?
Ideally, you should use a rug pad to prevent slipping and bunching. We recommend this one from Dunelm.
If your rug is flimsy, use double-sided adhesive tape. Or you could anchor all four corners with furniture.
How to clean rugs at home?
Vacuum or shake your rug to remove as much dust and debris as possible.
Find a suitable carpet shampoo for the type of rug you have, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully! We always recommend testing an inconspicuous patch first before applying whole surfaces because some rugs may react differently depending on their material content. Dab off excess liquid after application using soft cloths/towels.
