How to Choose the Perfect Living Room Rug

Choosing the perfect rug for your room can make the space inviting, whether it's the bedroom, outdoor, living room, or bathroom. Before making a choice, you need to ask yourself some questions, as they will determine if the rug will fit in.

How to Choose the Perfect Living Room Rug

When choosing a rug for your room, you need to consider the use of the room. Is it meant for entertainment or relaxation? If it's primarily for entertainment, you need to go for an exquisite finely woven rug. If space is for family relaxation, something more casual will suffice.

You also need to consider the size of the space. It's important that you measure the size of the room to choose a rug that will fit perfectly. A small size rug in a huge space is an unforgivable flaw.

The area rug also defines the seating area. If the living room has two seating areas, you should consider getting an area rug for each seating space or a large one that will cover both areas.

Another essential factor that you should consider is the rug’s texture. How you want the rugs to feel? Do you always go barefoot in the room? If that's the case, you should get rugs with softer materials like wool or silk. 

Patterns and colors make the living room enticing to stay in. This is why mixing them in the right combinations is crucial. Different patterns and the same color or the same pattern and different colors will add flavor to the room, especially if it's ingrained in neutral colors.

It's always important to go for rugs that you love and will serve your purpose, rather than their look or aesthetics. You can also go for layered rugs. However, you must get the color combinations and patterns right.
