Size of the Rugs

The very first thing to consider while buying an area rug for your living area is to choose the right size. The living room rug should be big enough that it fits easily under all the key furniture pieces in your room. If your living area is generously sized, then divide the entire room into two parts, and consider getting different area rugs for both spaces. They can have a different pattern or color but should complement each other and tie the entire space together.

Opt for solid area rugs if you wish to have an eclectic looking space. Likewise, if you have kids and pets at home and fear accidental spills and stains, then textured and patterned rugs work the best.
