Picking the Perfect Rug for Your Living Room


You and your family spend a lot of time in your living room, so it should feel cozy. Bare hardwood or stone floors may be fashionable, but they're less comfortable than a plush area rug is. The problem is that there are so many options for floor coverings. Here are a few tips to help you choose an excellent rug for your space.

Choose the right size

Area rugs come in many sizes, so it's critical to pick one that works for your room. Start by deciding whether you want a round or rectangular piece. Then measure your space. Most rugs come in standard sizes, though there may be some minor variation. Rug sizes typically are:

  • 3 x 5.
  • 4 x 6.
  • 5 x 8.
  • 7 x 10.
  • 8 x 11.
  • 9 x 12.

Select your material

Rugs also come in several different materials. Wool is the most traditional material for rugs, but it's high maintenance. If your household includes children or pets, it might not be the choice for you. Many rugs come in synthetic materials that are easier to clean but may have lingering chemical smells. Natural materials such as sisal, jute or seagrass are also common and great for children and pets.

Match the colors

The fun part about choosing rugs is picking a color for your room. You can always go with a neutral tone such as gray, beige, brown or black so that you can use any other accent colors elsewhere. You can choose the dominant color in your decor, such as the color of your wall paint. Or you can pick out a rug in an accent color. For example, if your room is primarily gray with a few yellow accents, choosing a yellow rug will create a point of interest.

Are washable rugs worth it?

Several online companies advertise washable rug systems that consist of a pad and a top layer rug that can be removed and washed right at home. They're a little more expensive than traditional rugs are, but owners save on carpet cleaning services or steamer rentals. Many homeowners who have invested in these washable rugs say they wouldn't live without them. They are perfect for high-traffic areas and homes with pets and small children.
