“Area Rugs” is a carpet or rug with big size. The function is grouping some furniture into one area. The rug is also an ideal divider for an open area. This is the reason that we find many people using rugs for living rooms. Besides, the rug also can be an object of interest for the living room.
However, as long as we are using rugs for living rooms, it means we deal with other elements like interior color or furniture colors. We have to select the motif or rugs color that in line with our room concept.
If we plan to divide the area by “area rugs” that has a big size, we need to place more than one rug. Regardless the shape, the important thing is the color harmony. We can collect the living room furniture as one area and other supporting living room’s furniture as the second one. Or else, we can do the same thing for an open area that has different function, one for guest area and the second one for family area. The best deal is selecting different motif with the same color theme.
Regarding the motifs or colors, there are many options and style out there. Look at our living room theme at first then we can decide the proper motif or color of the rug we are going to place in the living room. Neutral color and plain is the first option if our living room has many motifs or colors already.
Neutral rugs for living rooms will play at any area for any theme. This decision is taken if we are afraid or confuse to decide the appropriate style of the rug. Or else, play nicely with color or motif combination to make the living room more attractive with an eye-catching rug.
For example, we can use an Oriental rugs for living rooms design. Oriental motif generally uses colors that can be combined with other rugs and it will not make a color “clash”.
Regarding the rug placement, rugs for living rooms varies depends on the outlook you want. Some are placing the rug on the middle between the sofa and a table on it, or placing a big rug and arrange the sofa on the edge of the rug, letting the rug with no furniture at all on the middle and so on. The placement depends on how big the area too.
