I believe that to finish any space, that needs that special little touch, nothing can do a better job than a rug. Rugs are beautiful. And as much as the color and the pattern of the rug has a part to play, the size of rug can either make or break a space. To help you with this dilemma, today I am sharing some tips to find the perfect size rug for your living room.
Let’s start by making sure that the rug is big enough for the space. If you have the budget for a large rug, then go for option no. 1 where all the legs of all the furniture are on the rug.
2. If you don’t have the budget for a large rug, then go for option no. 2 where all the front legs of the all the furniture are on the rug.
One of the most important point to keep in mind is not to buy a rug that is too small for the space. For instance, do not get a rug where all the legs of all the furniture pieces are not on the rug i.e. do not leave a rug floating in the middle of a room. It makes the space feel disconnected.
Make sure that the rug fills the space, but not completely covers the floor! Keep 12-18 inches between the rug and the wall.
The ideal rug sizes to go for are 8×10, 9×12, 10×14. For a smaller space, you can try a 6×9.
