Outline High Traffic Areas - Larger spaces often mean there are multiple entrances and exits to both the outdoors and other rooms. Dare to place area rugs on top of your already installed carpets for protection. This indoor-outdoor rug not only is visually appealing, but it can handle the traffic from French doors. More importantly, it creates a traffic pattern. Outside Area Rugs - Large patios can also be transformed into defined, open-air living spaces. A durable outdoor rug can carve out a great outdoor living room from a space without definite borders. A rug makes any seating area and specially in front of a fireplace an inviting creative and cozy family space for more family sharing.
Remember, the rug should extend about an extra 32 inches past a dining table to accommodate pulling out chairs. When being placed in other spaces they should meet the furnishings in some way. It is a great idea to find a common color in your rug and pull it out using things like vases, throw pillows, wall hangings and other elements. This ties the room together.
Create an Inviting Entryway - When your front door opens straight into the room without a designated foyer, you can build the illusion of one with an area rug. A chevron wool rug is a good example of creating a welcoming entrance and makes a nice contrast to the hardwood. Use a bold color area rug to build on the look by adding a small piece of furniture and some art.
Make Your Living Room a Focal Point - While big rooms and tall spaces are the inviting aspect of an open-concept home, they also bring a challenge for organizing a cozy space for hanging out. A beautiful living space can be undefined until you place a patterned rug for an inviting and cozier conversation area. With high ceilings and big windows, the rug provides an anchor to the room and draws the eye down from the big spaces, making the room feel friendly and cozy.
