Decorating with large area rugs

Large area rugs are a powerful design tool. With their expansive size and range of colors, patterns, and textures, they can instantly ground a space, elevate your furniture, and inject personality into your home. If you're ready to add that extra touch to a room, here are a few tips to help you choose and style a large area rug.

Start with the size

The number one rule of large area rugs: bigger is almost always better. When a rug is too small, it can make the room appear disjointed and cramped. Ideally, you want your furniture to sit at least partially on the rug. Follow these guidelines:

  • Living room: At a minimum, the front legs of your seating should be on the rug. If possible, leave 18-24 inches of bare floor between the rug edges and the walls of the room.
  • Dining room: Make sure your rug extends beyond the table and chairs on all sides, even when the chairs are pulled out for dining.
  • Bedroom: Place the area rug so it extends out on the sides of the bed as well as under the foot of the bed.

Think about materials and maintenance

Consider the function of the room and your lifestyle before selecting your rug's material. If you have children or pets, a low-pile, durable material will hold up best. Flat-weave area rugs are known for being easy to clean. Luxurious wool rugs may require more delicate care if placed in a high-traffic area.

Use color and pattern wisely

Large area rugs have the potential to be the focal point of your design. Bold patterns and vibrant colors can energize the room, while more subtle hues create a sense of calm.

  • Monochromatic: A large rug in a neutral color can add texture and warmth while visually enlarging a small space.
  • Bold patterns: If your furniture is more neutral, try a rug with a geometric or abstract pattern. This will add flair and dimension to the room.
  • Complementary colors: Choose a rug that picks up on an accent color used throughout your space. This will tie your decor together beautifully.

Don't forget the rug pad

A high-quality rug pad serves multiple purposes. It increases your rug's lifespan by cushioning it against the floor, preventing bunching and movement (crucial for safety), and adding that extra plushness underfoot that makes the rug feel truly luxurious.
