Feel free to read my advice below…

Accent Rugs – This style is usually a couple of feet long and a few feet wide. They are ideal for the entranceway of a home or in a rest room. Vibrant rugs look very well under consoles or tables on a wooden floor.

Runners – These are long, thin rugs that are ideal for hallways, foyers and entrances leading into the house. They give a luxurious feel a little bit like a red carpet for guests and can be of a plain colour or have a traditional pattern such as a Persian or kilim style.

Feature Rugs – Ideal for areas in the living space, these rugs are usually square, rectangular, or circular and have a major impact. Living room rug placement to suit your décor is effective and a rug when used as a centrepiece, under a dining table or coffee table or even hung on a large plain wall, as artwork is impressive. Whether you choose intricate patterns, bold abstract modern designs and colours, these rugs always create dramatic focal points in any room.

Rugs vary in price and can be very reasonable from any home decor store or may be very costly if you opt for an antique oriental rug that is hand knotted. Rugs are made from many materials natural and synthetic and the material choice is important depending on the traffic in the room, whether you have children or pets or if you will be doing a lot of entertaining.

Silk, wool and fur rugs are usually handcrafted and suited to low use areas or as a wall hanging. A mid-range sturdy rug in a wool mix will not break the bank and will instantly transform your room with a luxury feel. Consider rugs made from cotton for durability and easy maintenance or bamboo or recycled materials for an eco-conscious choice.

Choosing your living room rug is the most difficult part but it is an exciting adventure. Here are some practical things to consider.

1. If you are looking for floor art with major impact, ensure it will not clash with the rest of the room.

2. Choose your rug to complement the existing colour scheme and room style.

3. Where possible, borrow swatches from your rug retailer to try at home or come to an arrangement that you can return the rug if it is not suitable.

4. Make sure the cleaning instructions are straightforward unless you are prepared for professional cleaning costs.
