Don’t Stress Over Rug Shopping! 3 Decorating Basics You Need to Know!

Rugs can make or break your home decor. If you have a rug that is too small, the room feels bare. If you have a rug that is too big, the room can feel too crowded. So finding the rug that is just right is the key to making your room feel complete! There are three basic ways to shop for a rug.

  • The first way to set up a rug is to have all the furniture on the rug. The back of the furniture should be touching the edge of the rug.
  • The second way to set up a rug is to have none of the furniture on the rug. Find a rug that just touches the legs of the furniture. This is perfect for those awkward-shaped rooms that need a rug but nothing seems to fit!
  • The last way to set up a rug is to have only the front legs of the furniture on the rug.

Happy rug shopping!
