Area rugs can be a huge trouble spot and a challenge to get right in your room. There are several reasons why it’s important to use them, but before buying something simply because you like it, make sure you know all the rules of thumb for area rugs. The most important consideration with any area rug is the size. When an area rug is too small it can make the entire room look disjointed so make sure you know the best size for your room and the way your furniture is arranged. All the furniture should be sitting on top of the rug and ideally, there should be about 10-to-20 inches of bare floor between the edges of the area rug and the walls of the room.
While the days of unused ”sitting rooms” and plastic-wrapped furniture are long gone, Roberts still insists on paying special attention to making your living room fit the conveniences of everyday living. ”Select textiles and rugs that can take the wear and tear of everyday living,” she recommends.
If you need additional storage, look for attractive pieces that conceal your knickknacks while blending well with your other decor. Likewise, an ultra-stylish couch may catch the eye, but what good is it if it is not comfortable? The most important element of a wonderfully designed living room is that it is a place you will actually want to hang out in.
When a living room is all white and bright, it can feel too “clean” and unapproachable. When it’s all dark, it can feel like a cave. But mixing dark and light colors creates a dynamic look that has depth and balance. The design of any space benefits from the inclusion of at least a little white and a little black.
Texture is easy to overlook when decorating a living room, especially since we don’t see it so much as touch it. But it’s important for making a living room feel cozy, and that goes for plush textures that appeal to the touch and harder textures that add contrast. Include leather, cotton, wool, metal, stone, glass, plant life and as many other textures as you can.
Sure, most furniture stores give you the option of purchasing an entire living room set in matching upholstery, but that doesn’t mean you should do it. In a formal seating area, matching upholstery can give a sense of maturity and order, but if you want a living room to feel cozy and welcoming, mix and match your upholstered pieces to give the design a bit more personality.
