Transform Any Room in Your House
Rugs don’t just enhance your overall room decor—they can also affect a room’s size. Beyond providing a nice focal point for the room, adding warmth and comfort, and absorbing noise, any space can instantly look bigger or smaller with the right area rug size. Therefore, it’s important to choose the right size when shopping for a new rug, as this can ultimately affect the room’s look and feel.
Rugs can make overly large areas feel less spacious and bare. This is done by using several small rugs to create separate areas within larger rooms or open floor plans. On the other hand, placing a large rug in the middle of a cramped room can create the illusion of added space. For best results, the large rug should blend well with the room’s walls and furniture to give the impression of uncluttered space.
Choosing the Right Rug Size
Rug sizes can be tricky, but one important rule of thumb is to make sure that the carpet is large enough so that the front legs of your furniture are all on the rug. You can also choose to have all legs on the rug or, if you have a larger room, keep all chair legs off of it completely by placing the furniture a few inches away from the edges of the rug.
