Modern rugs for your living room. Alright, so the biggest mistake that we see - and we see it all the time - is that the rugs tend to be too small for space. So the first thing we do when decides the right rug size is we actually measure the size of the seating area? All right so measure the room and realize the room is pretty big. The seating area is at least we need like a 9 by 12, but first I want to show you what happens if we bring in a rug, that's too okay, so the rub works in one sense that it is a little bit bigger than the sofa on Both sides - and I like for the rug to be at least six inches bigger on both side of the sofa, so we're about hitting that. So that's good, but none of the furniture legs are on it and the room is really big.
So the proportion of the road to the room is totally off. This isn't like wildly too small, but it is bigger, be better and the orientation of it being horizontal with a sofa. It's actually kind of like squashing the room and making the room feel smaller. So did you want to try it oriented vertically sure all right? The good thing is, there are at least six inches on both sides of sofa or rug. So that dimension is correct. Yes, it's wide enough.
It's just not long enough. I think our lesson is that we have to go up one more size, so here we have a 9 by 12. What's very well, it's off all right, so this guy is a 9 by 12. It's a big nice, a big rug for a nice big room. So, let's see what happens, we put all the furniture on top of it. This is our rug. Perfect, rug, size 9 by 12, is any bigger. It would be like running into both sides of the room, so we don't want a 10 by 14, but now all the furniture fits on it, so it dictates a conversation area and makes the room feel very pulled together. All right, so just to recap the first tip, is measure your space and make sure that you're getting the right rug for the right room.
