An area rug is an accessory that can add to the look of a home. However, it is not enough to buy an area rug because of its color or texture. It should blend with the rest of your modern furniture and the décor of the room.
How to Choose an Area Rug
Before buying an area rug, ask yourself the following questions:
2. Is there an open space next to the room? If yes, visualize if you have the rug inside the room or if the rug extends to the open space.
Consider the following factors:
Let the front legs of your modern sofa rest on the rug. If your rug is big enough, have your modern sofa set rests on it. If you want to define one area in your large living room, use multiple rugs. Make sure to pick rugs that has the same pattern or color.
The shape of the rug should match the shape of your dining table. Measure the width and length of your dining table. The rug should extend at least 18 -14 inches from the edge of the table. This will keep the chair’s back legs still resting on the rug even when being used. To check this, pull the dining chair out as if you are to sit down. Measure how far the legs would go.
An area rug in the bedroom should make the modern bed the focal point in the room. The rug should extend two feet to each side of your bed, except when it is on a wall. You can also opt to have layer rugs.
If you have hard floors, place an area rug on each side of the bed. This offers you a soft, warm place for your feet in the morning.
Placing an area rug in the entryway is perfect in making a first impression. Find a rug that is wider than the doorway so it won’t get in the way when entering and leaving your home. This also helps in exchanging greetings comfortably,
Use a runner for hallways and passageways. The rug should occupy six inches of floor space on all the runner’s sides.
Follow the above guidelines to get the appropriate rug for your home. An area rug that matches your modern furniture and theme will make your home look even more elegant and comfortable.
