Wall-to-wall carpet isn’t nearly as popular as it used to be. These days it's been traded out in exchange for area rugs, particularly in the living room. Area rugs look great and are often more practical than broadloom, but if you're going to use them there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
Living rooms may be everyone's favorite space in the home for the warmth and coziness they afford, but we have to acknowledge the brilliant work of designers who went above and beyond, turning what's traditionally considered a place of relaxation into carefully curated chambers that also spark our imaginations. Sure, you'll find rolled-arm sofas and tufted ottomans and other creature comforts, but you'll also see unexpected paint treatments, eclectic combinations of antique, contemporary, and custom furnishings, and a slew of other elements that show just how much attention to detail went into each creation.
Area rugs belong under the furniture – all the furniture if you can manage it. Exposing some flooring around the edges of the room is fine, but when using an area rug you want to make sure it’s big enough that all the furniture in a seating arrangement can sit on it. At the very least you want the front legs of large pieces to sit on the rug (the backs can be on the floor if necessary).
Arranging furniture can be a daunting task. When you're faced with an empty room knowing how to fill it can seem overwhelming. But all you need to do is follow these common sense rules and you'll find that arranging furniture isn't so scary after all.
