Room designPlacing an Area Rug in the Living RoomIt can be rather challenging when it comes to choosing that ideal area rug, as they are an integral part of creating a cohesive, transformative living room. it may feel like a costly venture, but in the long run, it can be much more affordable than carpeting the entire living room space. Rugs should be cozily connected with all the furniture in your living room. In a big living room, it's best to place the area rug around the main grouping of furniture. You don't want your rug "floating," as it can throw off the balance of the room. But, if this is not possible, and your living room is smaller, the front legs of your furniture should be on the rug, with the back legs off. How Big Should a Living Room Rug Be? The most general rule of thumb is that bigger is definitely better! Knowing the expected size of your area rug is essential, and your furniture should ideally be on top of your area rug to create a more open and complete feel. Choose a rug size as big as your room can allow while ensuring that it doesn't touch the edges of your walls—around 18 inches of exposed floor space around the perimeter of your area rug. It's important to remember that living rooms are different, so the right rug size for an open concept living room will be different to a small and closed-off living room. Additionally, make sure the rug is 6-8 inches wider than your couch on all sides to avoid a cluttered or awkward feel. Does Your Living Room Rug Need to Be Centered? A central location tends to be the most beneficial place for an area rug. Most importantly, you want the rug to be placed so that it will complement the main furniture as well as the existing layout of your room. However, no two living rooms are made the same. If the shape of your living room is quite unique and unconventional, a centered rug could look awkward—so you may want to play around with rug shapes and placement. The main centering that should take place is with your furniture around the outside of your area rug. You'd want the rug positioned in such a way that it complements your furniture visually. Centering is usually a safer bet, but your sofa doesn't always have to be perfectly in the center of the rug. In some cases, it can look more visually appealing to be in line with the corner of your rug. Best Placements for an Area Rug in the Living Room Aside from the central and corner placements mentioned above, some other things you'll want to keep in mind include: All legs off For a smaller living room, this can create a feeling of openness, and make your area rug the focal point. This also works great if you have a smaller area rug that you still want to make use of, such as by placing it on top of another, larger area rug.Front legs on This layout is great for grounding your living room, and a great option for when you want to make your room feel spacious—or if some of your furniture is placed against a wall. If your space is big and more open-plan, the rug should sit under the front legs. If you have chairs in the space as well, the front legs of the chair should also be touching the rug.All legs on This layout works perfectly for a larger, open-plan living room. Just make sure you keep a few inches between your furniture and the edge of the rug. If the rug is large, then one or both sofas can sit completely on top of your area rug.Rounded arrangement This is a slightly less conventional and distinct arrangement that allows you to play around a bit more, with front legs on or off. Is It Better to Place a Rug Under or in Front of Furniture? It is better to place a rug under the furniture, but this also comes down to how much space you actually have to play around with. You don't want to place your area rug too close to the walls, as it can make the room feel smaller or cramped. You want your room to feel large and open, so try to position the rug in a way that allows a decent strip of visible flooring between the rug and the wall. This rule applies to placing a rug on a carpet as well. There are many unique and interesting ways that you can place your area rug in your living room. It is your opportunity to experiment and play around, but be sure to apply the general layout rules discussed above to create your ideal living room design.

Room design7 Durable Rug Materials to Elevate Your Living Room Choosing the right living room rug can transform and elevate this regularly used space. It can create the perfect focal point, enhancing the look and feel of this room, while bringing in a unique style and personality. Living room rugs also bring in a sense of comfort, creating warmth and coziness. Once you're ready to make that leap in getting your fabulous living room rug, you must choose the right material. Ideally, the fabric should be comfortable and durable, strong enough to handle the foot traffic of this busy room. Here are the best rug materials to consider when choosing a durable and stylish rug: 1. Vinyl Vinyl is a very practical choice of material because it's easy to clean and maintain. It also makes it an ideal choice for those who struggle with asthma and allergies. Vinyl rugs are durable and hard-wearing, therefore well-suited to withstanding the constant busyness of the living room area. They also often come with a non-slip reverse side to prevent any curling at the corners. Another bonus? This versatile material is easy on the pocket! Because interesting and colorful patterns can be printed on this material, a vinyl rug is an ideal way to bring texture and color to your living room, especially if big pieces like your furniture are neutral colors. » Combine beautiful and practical with Stamped Reed Vinyl Rug 2. Wool This material is a popular choice, thanks to its softness and durability. Wool is a strong and resilient fiber choice that can outlast synthetic materials. It's great for insulation and is water and stain repellent, but ensure to keep it away from any damp areas. Wool can absorb most substances quite easily, making it more resistant to dust and water damage. Wool can shed when new, but this will lessen over time. It's naturally hypoallergenic, because it acts as a natural filter that traps pesky allergens and prevents the growth of bacteria. Wool rugs can bring warmth to a room with cold tile floors or can assist with acoustics in a room with high ceilings. 3. Nylon Nylon is a resilient and strong fiber, allowing it to withstand a lot of movement. It also has absorbent properties, so stains won't sink deep into the rug and leave unattractive marks. Nylon has good texture retention, meaning it has good longevity and can maintain its shape for years to come. Nylon fibers dye and retain color very well. Therefore, along with their durability, they're an ideal choice to introduce color and a focal point to your living room. 4. Flatweave Flatweave rugs are a great budget-friendly choice that feels cozy and soft underfoot. Along with their durability and easy maintenance, flatweave rugs are the best rug materials for busy entryways, living rooms, and playrooms. They come in beautiful woven designs, so style doesn't have to be sacrificed for practicality. 5. Polypropylene Because of their durability and resilience, polypropylene rugs are made to endure the busyness of everyday movements. However, these rugs are soft and still offer comfort to your living room. Polypropylene rugs have the additional functionality of working well in outdoor spaces too, making them ideal for a family with children and pets. 6. Sisal/Jute Sisal and jute are durable, renewable natural fibers that are thickly woven to make them comfortable underfoot, bringing warmth and texture to your living room space. These rugs are water and stain as well as excellent insulators. 7. Chilewich Chilewich is a textile made from woven extruded vinyl yarns, created by New York-based designer and founder Sandy Chilewich. It's a durable and easy-to-clean material that can simply be wiped with a damp sponge or cloth. This material has a sturdy latex backing to prevent curling, but it's not waterproof, so liquids may seep through. Conclusion While we think that all the above rug options can work well for your living room space, vinyl rugs seem to be the way to go in terms of versatility, durability, and resilience. They also provide style and comfort to the room. After choosing your rug, the next consideration is where to place your area rug in your living room, as well as whether a larger or a smaller rug might benefit you. » Didn't find what you're looking for?
