While choosing modern living room rugs, we often tend to go for the smaller options. Some of the reasons behind the choice are easier maintenance, the convenience of laying out, and affordability. To be honest, investing in a comparatively larger carpet doesn’t mean you need to go as big as the Hollywood red carpet. Their maintenance is as much as their smaller variant.  Besides, you might be missing out on something transformative just to save a few bucks.


Depending upon the wear out and your household, you might want to go for darker and vivid options. If you have kids or pets at your place, the chances of carpet staining become higher.

Darker options with bold patterns hide away the stains while keeping the look of your space intact. You can incorporate lighter shades with fabrics that are easier to clean. Shapes matter too. The right shape of carpet can make your room look bigger or smaller. If your room is rectangular, rectangular carpets are a perfect choice. For square rooms, round shaped rugs and square rugs would be more ideal.


Floating carpet style refers to the setting where the rug covers only the coffee table area. That’s it! The seating area remains rug-free. You can go for smaller rugs without worrying about border width and length running with the sofa.


In case you thought, you can only add one rug into your space you are wrong. Depending upon the size of your room, you can add two to three small to medium sized rugs. Plus, they don’t have to be necessarily identical. You can create your own unique combination with vivid motifs, intricate patterns, and colors to flaunt a bespoke look.
