What size rug for my living room?
Getting the appropriate rug size for your living room is crucial in the overall design of your space. The size of your rug can affect the whole feel and look of your room.
Depending on the style of rug, we have many different sizes available. Our carpet rug sizes can be categorised into five groups: small rugs, large rugs, oversized rugs, hallway rugs and round rugs. Our rugs are also available in various patterns and designs including tribal, floral, traditional, modern and more.
Choosing the size of your rug will depend on how large your seating area or your furniture configuration, so the bigger your seating, the larger you want your rug to be. Rugs that are too large or too small for your space can cause the room to look and feel lost and directionless, while the right rug size can tie the elements of the room together and create the perfect addition to your space.
What size rug for a small living room?
Using the right rug scale in a small living area can make your space feel more cohesive, so don’t try to skimp on size!
If you have a small area you can go with two options: 1) choose a living room rug that covers almost the entire floor of your room, leaving just a foot or two at the edges, or 2) choose a centered rug that will fit nicely within your seating area.
Alternatively, our small rugs will give a sense of order and make your room look bigger. We have plenty of options to choose from starting from small rugs with bold colors to neutral tones that can complement any colour scheme in your living space.
What size rug for a large living room?
Open floor plans and large living rooms can be tricky because you need a rug that will define the area. In an open floor plan, you can break the room down into multiple areas by using rugs to visually hold groups of furniture together. You can put a rug in your seating area and leave the dining room to sit directly on the floor. Our large area rugs are available in various neutral tones and distressed patterns, perfect for lounge rooms and living areas.
How to style a rug in living room
The perfect rug can elevate your mood, start a conversation and bring joy to your seating areas, especially when styled correctly.
To start with, look at the size and dimensions of your room. If you have a long room, place your rug lengthways. If you have a smaller space, consider the other furniture and how the rug will look before placing it. Think of door swings, floor grilles, and fireplaces that could affect your rug placement.
Now, it’s time for inspiration! Make a mood board from styles you like - whether it’s bohemian, modern, traditional, berber or coastal, everyone has different tastes and it’s important to really familiarise yourself with a style before committing to a rug.
When you’ve chosen a style you love, it’s time to choose a rug. You can find a great selection of living room rugs below or use the navigation bar at the top to browse all of our styles.
Also, don’t limit yourself to one rug per room. You can use multiple rugs for larger rooms or create a unique style by layering rugs. Another option is to layer an area rug over carpet. This adds a unique and playful touch to your space.
How to style a rug under a couch
Large area rugs should be placed in front or under your seating furniture. If you want medium-sized rugs, choose ones that you can place in front of your couch. Be generous when selecting the size, you want a rug that reaches the leg of your sofa.
Don’t centre a small rug in a big room, as this creates visual discomfort and can make the room feel uninviting. To make sure your room is cohesive and flows well, choose the appropriate rug size that goes under your couches and furniture.
How to choose a rug colour
Colours can affect your living room’s feel and ambiance. When it comes to colour for your living room rug, there are a few ideas to consider. Warm colours such as yellow rugs, orange rugs, and red rugs can make a room more intimate. Cool hues such as blue rugs, green rugs, and purple rugs can bring an airy feel to any room.
Flooring is also important. For dark wood tones or tiles, it’s best to choose light-coloured or beige rugs to balance the room. You also want to pay attention to your furniture and walls. Neutral coloured furniture will look well with trendy and patterned rugs. Likewise, grey and white coloured rugs will look great in a monochromatic-themed room.
Just as you should be careful with colour clashes, you should also be wary of matching colours too much. For example, pairing brown walls with a brown rug can make your room look flat. Embrace patterns and always add contrast to your space.
In some cases, a multi-colour rug or animal hide rug can work in a multicoloured room if the room colours are also present in the rug. This helps create a visually organized space where the colours aren’t competing with each other.
How to choose a rug texture
When choosing rug texture or style for your living room, think about what kind of lifestyle and atmosphere you have at home. If you’re going for a coastal or beach-vibe (or you live near the beach), consider choosing our natural jute rugs, or summer rug.
For a luxurious area, consider our traditional rugs or affordable vintage rugs made by professional rug artisans. These rugs can bring character and sense of history to any room.
For industrial style living rooms, choose our area rugs that mimic the texture and colors of paint, brick, and concrete.
For rooms with high-traffic, consider our jute rugs, outdoor rugs or wool rugs. If you’re busy or have a pet at home, choose a low-maintenance rug such as our flatweaves and pet-friendly options. Both these options are fairly easy to maintain plus they look and feel great under bare feet.
When to use an oval rug
When it comes to interior design trends, oval or round rugs are often used for rustic or country decor because “hard edges” are often reserved for modern and contemporary styles. They are also used under an oval coffee table as they can soften the look and add sophistication to the room. Furthermore, the oval shape will allow traffic to flow around your coffee table.
