Decorating a living room is not just about picking the right furniture or paint color. There are other things to consider, like rug style and color. Rugs can help transform your living space into a warm, inviting place that feels comfortable and stylish simultaneously — but only if you choose the right one! If you are thinking about luxury rugs for living room, then read on because we have some tips for choosing the right rug for your home!
Keep Measurements In Mind
Don't forget to measure the room. You need to know the dimensions of your living room space because it will help determine what size rug you can fit. If you have a large area rug and not enough room to lay flat, the edges will roll up and look messy.
Measure the furniture as well. Measure all the pieces that you'll be placing on top of your new rug—sofa(s), coffee tables, side tables, etc.—to make sure that they're small enough not to interfere with how big or small a particular rug is going to look in comparison with other items around them. And we recommend measuring everything at least three times (or more) just to be safe!
Measure doorways as well so that, if necessary, they can accommodate larger doorways without leaving an awkward gap between them where no one wants their eyes wandering while trying not to topple over into someone else's house party downstairs...or something like that?
Choose The Right Rug Size
You want to make sure you have enough room to walk around the rug. This means that if your living room is small, a bigger rug will take up too much space and leave you with nowhere to sit down. On the other hand, if your living room is large and empty-feeling, a smaller rug may seem out of place or lost in all that space.
The size of your room also determines what furniture will work best with it. For example, suppose you're using an area rug under family-room furniture like sofas, armchairs (or even a sectional). In that case, they should be arranged so as not to interfere with people walking on top of them (and vice versa). In addition, any furniture placement should allow for ample legroom around each piece—and remember: You'll likely want an extra foot or two between chairs and tables so that people can comfortably get in and out without bumping into each other!
Select A Rug Shape That Fits Your Space
Rugs come in various shapes, so you can choose one that fits your space. Rectangular rugs are great for large rooms; they're large enough to cover the floor and wide enough to give the room an airy feel. Square rugs work well in smaller spaces because they can easily be moved out of the way when needed. Round or oval rugs are ideal for creating a focal point in an otherwise clean room; this shape also helps soften hard edges and corners. Octagonal rugs are another option for small areas like hallways or atriums—they appear less bulky than other shapes but still, add visual interest!
In addition to selecting a rug size that works well with your space, consider how much light will fall on it when deciding which color palette will complement it best (more on this later). For instance, dark colors tend to absorb more light than lighter ones and make floors look dingier over time because they show dust particles more obviously. If your living room gets lots of natural lighting during the day, however—say through windows near where you plan on placing your new rug—you may be able to get away with something brighter without worrying too much about discoloration due to fading over time due frequent use by foot traffic like kids playing games around them all day.
Be Comfortable With Layering Rugs
Layering rugs is a great way to add warmth to your living room. Be careful not to overdo it—you don't want the room to look too busy or cluttered. Also, try not to use too many different shapes and colors to create a layered look; that can be overwhelming for some people.
