It doesn’t matter whether you are trying to match a color of the rug with your couch or your sofa, or you are trying to match a pattern with your wall. The area rug you choose should be large enough for all of the things you want to put in it.

This way, if you do not have a large enough area rug in place when you start decorating the room, you won’t have any problems.

There are many different types of area rugs that you can use in your living room, including shag, velvet, and even rugs that match your sofa or chairs. There is no right or wrong type to choose, so it really depends on what looks good in your living room.

The first place you should look for an area rug is in the middle of the room between the coffee table and your front door.



One type of rug that would look good in a high traffic areas such as the living room would be a medium-density jute floor coverings. They come in square, round, or rectangular shapes. Since they come in all sizes, you can easily find one that will match the dimensions of your furniture.

Medium-density jute floor coverings are a very durable and attractive choice for a rug that will also keep dirt and debris from collecting.

You might also want to consider a small rug underneath your furniture that will keep shoes and other items off the coffee table and the floor. This can also protect your carpet. A small rug like this should be at least four feet by four feet in size.

Small rugs for low traffic areas can be purchased in rolls or in carpets. You can find them in any size you need to fit your needs.

Another option for floor covering is a wool rug. Wool rugs are softer than corals and do not hold odors as well. They also make wonderful bed covers. Some wool rugs are also dyed to make them more interesting and colorful.

When shopping for an area rug, you have to consider the size and dimensions of your furniture. Your furniture may only be four inches wide or much larger. Also consider the thickness of your carpet. Thicker carpet will give a bigger piece of furniture less room to hide.

It will also take up less space in the room. If you have a large piece of furniture, you should go with a thicker rug to avoid the pieces sticking out and making the room look too busy.

When shopping for area rugs, it is important to know what you want. Will you choose a round rug or something else? Do you want a rug that goes with the style of the room, or do you want it to stand out?



Would you like to buy something affordable, or would you prefer high-end expensive materials? What about color? White is often thought to be the best choice, but where do you draw the line?

For extra comfort, if you have children or a pet, purchasing a padded rug will help eliminate the feeling of coldness.

The same is true if you have extremely large and bulky items such as a round dining table. Area rugs can be used to cover a baby’s crib, a chaise lounge, or even a sofa. They come in all different sizes and colors, and the only limit is your imagination.

You don’t have to choose just one; shop around and you will find the perfect piece to complement your existing decor.
