Whether relaxing by yourself or entertaining friends and family, your living room is a space you spend a lot of time in.

It’s a room you want to be stylish, as well as warm and inviting. A rug is as essential for a living room as a couch or coffee table. It’s a piece of furnishing that instantly adds personality and a sense of cosiness.

An investment for your home, it’s important to think carefully before you buy living room rugs to ensure you end up with a style you will love for years. 

Consider the size of the room

Usually one of the biggest rooms in your home, you want a living room rug large enough for the space.

Take measurements of your living room so you know what size you need. It’s generally better to go bigger with a rug. Choosing too-small a rug, especially for a typically spacious room like the living room, can make it seem like it’s floating in the middle of the space.

You also need to consider the layout of the room and the placement of furniture, as this may impact the size of the rug you need.

If you have an open plan living area, you may want to use rugs to define the space and create distinct areas, which could involve numerous rugs of varying sizes.

Choosing the right style

A rug can be used like art, something to draw the eye and add style and personality to a room.

Give the space a boost by injecting new colours and patterns into your living room. A bold rug can make a statement, while a soft, neutral rug can seamlessly blend in with the existing style.

A rug adds comfort and warmth. If you have wooden floorboards or tiles you can lose a lot of heat, using a rug helps the room stay toasty and stops you from having to walk on cold floors.

Think about your lifestyle when you buy living room rugs. If you have pets or young children, you want a rug that can handle spills and stains and is easy to clean. Wool rugs are very hard wearing and will look good for many years, making them an ideal choice for living rooms.
