Add style to your living room with an area rug
Selecting area rug for the living is not an easy task as a trip to the market would reveal. With so many choices in materials and shapes and designs, you are bound to get confused. However, if you can decide on the floor plan of the living room the task becomes simpler.
If the sofa is set against the wall, you need a big area rug that would cover the space in between and also fit under the front legs of the sofa and chairs.
On the other hand, if the sofa is set in the middle, you need a much larger rug to cover the living area.
Modern home decors use rugs in an innovative way. You may place several small rugs in the living room thus breaking the monotony of space and also adding pop of colors to the living room decor.
The area rug should gel with the color palette of the living room. If the sofa and the table are of solid colors, go for a patterned rug. The secondary color of the rug should coordinate with the color of the key furniture pieces like the sofa or drapes. Similarly, if your living room already showcases a lot of colors on the wall, drapery and the furniture, choose a neutral colored rug to achieve harmony.
