Wall‐to‐wall carpet is not nearly as popular as it used to be. These days it’s been "traded out" in trade for area rugs, particularly in the living room. Area rugs look great also are often more practical than broadloom, but if you’re going to use them there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
One of the biggest errors people make when decorating living rooms is to use area rugs that are too small (often referred to as postage stamp size). The standard sizes are 6' x 9', 8' x 10' and 9' x 12'. This is what you’ll find in stores but if the sizes do not suit your space you could always have one custom made. Depending on what type of carpet it is, it is not inevitably that much more costly to go custom. Whatever you decide, keep in mind that there should be approximately 4" to 8" of bare floor around all the sides of the rug.
When it arrives to appointing an area rug, think long plus rigid about the color with pattern. Choosing a patterned rug could be a great way to add color as well as interest to a area with neutral furniture together with walls. Likewise, a solid rug in a impartial color could be a nice way to soothe an eclectic space. Keep in mind also that a patterned rug would be better for hiding dirt plus spills while a solid rug is more likely to show stains.
In case you have a colorful area plus still want a colorful rug, try to find something that would connect as well as pull all the colors together. The idea is to make sure they do not brawl each other; otherwise, you’ll end up with a visually cluttered space. Remember that the flooring has a enormous impact on the overall look of the space, so select something you could live with and will not tire of quickly.
Think about how you want the rug to feel before you make a buy. Wool rugs could add warmth plus softness while natural materials like sisal also jute are a bit rough. Silk is soft and beautiful but also expensive as well as tough to clean. Take these things into consideration when shopping.
To add a little more attraction or define your area a little more try layering space rugs on top of each other. It could add a little more color with pattern also it’s a particularly great trick for seasonal decorating. In the colder months layering rugs could add coziness, then in the summer you could edit them plus create a lighter look.
