Tips to choose rugs for the living room

Rugs play a huge part in contributing to the room's overall look. One must consider the texture, color, style, size, and weave of a rug while choosing it for your living space. The right rug may stay in your home for decades. Therefore, while buying an area rug for your living room, consider the following tips:

Material of the rug

As we know, living rooms are the heavily used rooms. This area gets more traffic than others. Therefore, choosing durable rugs like fully woolen rugs or cotton flat-weave rugs will serve the purpose. These rugs are stain-resistant and thick enough to give a feel of warmth to the surrounding.

Make rug, the hero

If you want to make a real statement with a rug to steal the show, start with a hand-woven rug and then build the room around it. It's a fact that a rug adds a pleasing aesthetic to a space. Find a rug that matches the existing color scheme. To achieve a harmonious look, it's best to pick a rug with a milder design and color for the living room, which can also complement the decor.

Limited mobility, a considering factor

Choose a low-pile handwoven rug if you have somebody in your home with limited mobility. These are also ideal for households with young children, who tend to dash from one room to the next without considering tripping hazards or changes in the floor's surface. Cotton rugs, however, are often the best choice for homes with children. However, they do not have the look and feel of woollen rugs.

Size of the rug

Choosing the right size rug for the living area is not that difficult. A too-small rug will create a disconnected, fragmented look, while a too large rug will overwhelm the space. The best way to consider the best fit rug for your living room is to see the shape of the seating area. Choose a square rug if your seating space is square. Select a rectangular rug if your seating area is rectangular.

These tips will help you to choose the best-suited rug for your house. With these tips, deck out your living room this new year with beautiful Pura Vida rugs and carpets.
