Why you need a large rug

A large rug usually defines the seating area. It should match the size and style of the living room. Small rugs imbalance a large room, position a large rug so the front legs of the furniture sit on it.  It will give balance and can define zones in the room.

Why you need an area or pattern rug

Area rugs have overtaken the popularity of wall-to-wall carpet. When it comes to choosing a rug for the living room give considerable thought to the color and pattern. A patterned rug will give that pop of color to a neutral room with bland wall colors and neutral furniture. A patterned rug will also hide dirt and spills more easily.
