Living Room Rugs – make the perfect choicePura Vida Carpets
Rugs can make or break the look of a room. That is why choosing the right rug is very important. When it comes to your living room, that is the one part of your house that reflects the vibe of your home. So, you won’t want anything to go wrong with it. The right rug can completely uplift the mood of the living room and add a classy finishing touch to the vibe of the living room. But the wrong one can completely kill the vibe of your beautiful home. So, we have come up with a number of tips and suggestions that you should keep in mind while choosing the right rug for your living room.</>
Choosing the right colour
You start with keeping in mind the colour you want. When you consider the final look that the rug is lending to the room, it all comes down to the colour coordination. If you have lots of colours and various patterns dominating the space, you would want to stick to solids of neutrals hades or some shade that would go well with the room and other furnishings. On the other hand, if you want a lot of colours and patterns happening in the rug and want it to be the most visually attractive piece in the room, it is better that you pick the rug first and then do up the rest of the living room.
Choosing the right texture
If you want your living room to look the best, you cannot undermine the importance of the texture of the rug. In order to make the living room look plush, we suggest you go for various layers of textures throughout the living room. Move beyond looped wool and embrace more velvets. Again, if you plan to have a high-end leather sofa in the living space, we suggest you to find a rug that is long and fluffy. While choosing the texture, you also have to pay attention to the cleaning of the rug.
Choosing the right size
Whoever told you that size doesn’t matter, clearly doesn’t know a thing about choosing the right rugs. Well, choosing the size of the rug has some established set of rules and it is best that you play by them. Experimenting with size can go horribly wrong and we advise you against it.
The size of the rug should be perfect to fit your seating area. Remember that the seating area is not your entire room area. In an ideal situation, all the furniture in the living room will be placed on the rug. But you can also be smart about it and opt for placing just the front two legs. When someone is sitting on the sofa, their legs should be on the rug, not the floor. These are the factors that you have to keep in mind while determining the right size of the rug.
Choosing the functionality of the rug
By this, we mean that you have to determine what role the rug is going to play in the room. Some people use rugs to hide the imperfections on the floor like discoloration. Some are just focused on the glamour quotient. You need to think about the theme of the entire living space and also how you would like to spend your time here. When you determine the purpose of the rug, you get a better idea about the kind of rug you want.
Do not undermine the feel good factor
Finally, you have to remember that whatever rug you choose, it should exude a sense of positivity and a feel good factor. Famous interior designer Kathy Anderson from Nashville says, “Don’t be afraid of color. But I prefer rugs with an interesting pattern and combination of highs and lows in the pile. A pattern also helps hide the wear and tear and allows our clients to really enjoy their space, which is the whole point.”
Choosing the right rug can be tricky. But keeping these factors in mind will help go about and make a well informed decision. Rugs are quite expensive, so it is better to be safe than be sorry. If you pick a wrong rug, it will just go to waste.
