Are you looking to upgrade your space in a way that adds instant texture and warmth to it? Do you want to get a colorful new look that will spruce up your living room? This can be done with a carpet. Yes, this little thing can do magic. Use our guide to choose the right living room carpets with little effort.
Rugs vs. Carpets
Many people still get confused and do not understand the real difference between a rug and a carpet; While both are used for floor covering and for living room decorating purposes, a rug is smaller in size. It usually covers a part of the floor. However, a carpet covers the whole wall-to-wall area and can sometimes be fixed to the floor permanently.
Choosing the right size
Here are few things to consider when choosing your carpet size:
- If your living room is big, you would want to choose a medium to large size carpet. A small carpet will be easily lost in a big space
- Multiple carpets can be bought if your place has many sections or holds to more than one furniture set
- If you choose more than one carpet, make sure they are almost of the same size and similar in their colors and shapes
Before going to the store, you should envision the placement of your carpet to get a better idea of how the place will look like. Indeed, a carpet should be placed at the center of your living room, being the focal point that adds beauty and livens up your area. A space with the same length on each side of it should be left free and separate from its surroundings. As for your furniture, they must be positioned like borders to it which gives the area a more aggregate and romantic outlook.
While we take the shape of a carpet for granted, interior designers know very well what a serious issue it is, since a wrong shape can render your room unpleasant. A rounded one is a perfect tip for small living room ideas, especially if placed under a rounded centered table. A rectangular-shaped one with a medium size is ideal for a rectangular room or a room whose accessories come with a rectangular form. The same rule almost applies to a square shape. Anyhow for a more daring or modern décor, undefined shaped carpets or asymmetrical ones are used. They express the character of their owner better than any other shaped carpets.
The process of making a carpet by mixing various materials of different colors and textures is an art by itself. Thus, don’t be intimidated by traditional looks. Instead, get creative and follow your intuition when choosing your art flooring. The first thing to consider is that the color should complement your furniture's color and style. Don’t shy away from buying dark-colored carpets that will provide the right balance with light furnishing. However, if you would like to showcase your furniture, then adopt neutral-colored carpets. Neutral colors go with any arrangement no matter how complicated the décor may be. Another option is to adopt an exotic colored carpet which will give a global style to your living room and a cool but fresher scene.
A living room is a space where you will gather will your family and friends and share your outmost happy moments. To create a comfortable atmosphere where the flooring design is relaxing and soft, it is crucial to make the right choice when it comes to carpet material. To guarantee that your carpet will survive the daily traffic of people sitting in the living room, and to ensure that it won’t shed after few uses, it must be durable. By durability, we mean the highest quality of fiber, the method of twisting, and the density of the carpet. Besides durability, cleaning should be taken into consideration. The easier it is to clean a carpet, the less anxious the housewife will be. And the more soft the carpet, the more heat it can keep inside. The best of both worlds are carpets that are affordable but at the same time durable, soft, and easy to wash.
