How to choose a rug for your room?

Rugs are one of the most integral pieces of decor for any room. Whether you’re re-upholstering or purchasing a new rug for a living room, the rug needs to suit your space and design scheme. Because a rug can usually take up a large chunk of space, keep your design scheme simple when choosing the size rug.

Many people make the mistake of going with a huge size to fill up space. This usually isn’t the best choice, because if you’re using a small-sized rug, it may be so large, it makes a huge impact on your decor, and too large, it will cover up space you are trying to highlight.

But how much space do you need for your rug?

To keep your decor in check, size matters. When we’re talking about a living room rug, you can usually size that rug to fit the shape of your living room. Depending on how deep your living room is, you may only need a standard size of rug. In general, a smaller rug that fits perfectly in between the couch and chair is usually a good fit. If you’re living room is more of open space with a lot of furniture, it’s best to go with a larger rug that encompasses your space, as this will help disguise the floor, and still allow the rug to come to the surface.

But for a bedroom, it’s a bit different. Many people opt to go with a king-size bedroom rug, to fit their king-sized bed. If you’re living in a bedroom that is a bit smaller, opt for a queen-size or king-size, depending on your needs. But before you start getting ready to choose your rug size, think about where you’re going to put it.

What is the difference between queen and king size rugs?

To be perfectly honest, we love Queen and King sized rugs. The reason is that we can easily combine smaller rooms with bigger rugs. For example, a queen-size rug with a smaller sized runner gives more room for the bed. A king-size rug with a small runner gives more room for the sofa and table. There is also a bigger difference between the width of the queen and king size rugs. Usually, king-size rugs are narrower and therefore the larger size rugs are also wider.
