Choosing the right rug requires a few steps to consider. Obviously, first of all, you will need to choose a “favorite” rug that matches your tastes. However, you will need to be careful to choose a rug that will be able to live in harmony with the decoration of the living room but also with everyday life. Shapes, materials, dimensions, we answer any of your questions.
There are many rugs that are likely to make you fall in love with your living room! Graphic rugs, arty rugs, designer rugs, trends revisit this essential element of living room decoration in an ultra attractive light. However, we must be careful not to let ourselves be blinded by trends that will disappear as quickly as they appeared in the decorative sphere. You should choose your rug as a long-term investment.
The volume of the room and the furniture present will define the size of the rug. No question of taking a small living room rug when you have a large sofa and a large coffee table. Likewise, avoid a rug that is too large in a small living room, which would make the space even more cramped. To summarize: the carpet must be proportionate to the furniture in the living room. In addition, depending on the surface area of the room but also its configuration, you will need to choose a long rug or a square rug.
In addition to the dimensions of the rug, you need to know how to arrange a rug in a living room. The rule would be that the rug should be placed lightly under a piece of furniture, such as a sofa, a sideboard or under a coffee table. In this specific case, make sure that it protrudes on either side by 50 cm ideally.
