Finding Perfect Rug for your Living Room

The rug you choose for a room can significantly impact its overall look and feel. With the evolution of Area Rugs, a buyer has a myriad number of options in terms of color's, sizes, and shapes.

Color, size, and shape play crucial roles in determining how well the rug complements the space. In this Blog, we will consider the impact of rug color, shape, and size on the room:

Color Tone: While choosing area rugs for the living room, make sure that you pick the right color. It has a direct impact on mood and atmosphere. While light-colored rugs can make a room feel brighter and more spacious, Darker rugs tend to create a cozy and intimate atmosphere. They are also more forgiving in terms of hiding dirt and stains.

Contrast and Coordination: A rug that contrasts with the flooring and furniture can be a focal point, adding visual interest. On the contrary, coordinating the rug color with existing elements in the room (such as furniture or wall colors) can create a harmonious and cohesive look.

Room Size and Rug Size: Light-colored rugs can make a small room appear larger and more open. Dark-colored rugs can anchor furniture in a large room and create a more intimate feel.

Room Definition: In a living room, having furniture pieces with their front legs either on or off the rug can define and anchor the seating area. Placing a rug completely under key furniture pieces, such as a dining table or bed, can define specific areas within a room.

Proportions: A rug that is too small for a room can make the space feel disjointed, while a rug that is too large might overwhelm the room. Ensure the rug is proportionate to the scale of the furniture in the room. For example, a small rug under a large dining table may not look balanced

Functionality: Consider the flow of foot traffic and place the rug strategically in areas where people walk frequently. The shape of the room and the rug should complement each other. For example, a square rug may work well in a square room.

Layering: Layering rugs can add texture and visual interest. Make sure the sizes and shapes complement each other.
