Another idea you can explore is area rugs, especially if you don’t fancy the idea of having the same carpet covering the whole space all year round. With rugs, you can change the look of your house every so often. Here’s how you can get started:
How to Choose an Area Rug
The traditional rule of thumb is to measure the seating area and select a rug the closest size up. This allows all of the furniture legs to rest on the rug for a unified look.
For a more modern look, break the rules using smaller rugs that fit the front furniture legs (or no furniture legs).
Try filling the entire room with the rug. To do so, measure your room and select a size that allows for two feet of floor space around the rug’s perimeter.
You can also layer rugs. A smaller rug on top of a larger one helps define seating areas and creates visual interest. Use carpet tape to keep the rug safely in place. Read more at Lowe’s…
