Rugs can be an important piece to any room, they can dictate the feel of the space, they add color, texture and of course, personality. It can be tricky to find just the right look and size for your space, so to help you make your decision, I’m sharing a few tips to keep in mind before you go shopping!

The Right Size

You never want your room to feel fragmented, so make sure you are measuring the space and the furniture within it appropriately.  For example, in larger sized living rooms – it’s best to go with a larger rug and have all your furniture sit on the rug. Make sure that there is enough extending behind the furniture so you can comfortably walk behind them. This look creates cohesion and sense of grandeur. On the other hand, choosing a rug that is too small, can make a space feel crowded.

Color & Texture

Color really helps set the tone for your space. Neutral rugs can bring a calming sense, while bright and colorful rugs are inviting and playful.  So make sure you are taking into consideration, the look and feel you are going for.  The texture of the rug is also important – for example, a cozy shag rug feels inviting and makes you want to lounge with your family. However a more formal look can bring a sophisticated look and be easier to keep.

Type of Materials

There are a variety of rug materials you can choose from, but make sure you choose one that’s right for your family and how you use the space. You want to make sure whatever you select is going to hold up well for its intended space. No matter what room you would like to accent, there is a rug that will complement it beautifully.
