How to choose a rug for your living room

Living Room rugs can be the most important piece of furniture in your home. Decorating with handmade, one-of-a-kind rugs can be a fun way to add a splash of style to your rooms. Finding the perfect rug for your furniture can create a warm, inviting feel. There is a perfect area rugs in your desired shape, size and pattern if you just know how to look! To find the right one you simply need to plan and a vision of what you are looking for.


Living Room Rugs Size

When decorating your living room with rugs the most important aspect is knowing how to choose the perfect size. You do not want to choose a rug that is too big and will engulf all of your flooring. You also do not want to go with a rug that is so tiny that your space will start looking awkward. You need to find the right balance by planning your space.

In your living room space our advice is to have the front legs of your furniture on the rug and the back legs off. Living room area rug placement is a crucial for the perfect living area. Smaller rugs without anchored furniture will make your room design feel unfinished and floating. Be sure you measure your room and visualize how the area rug will be positioned. Charlie Kaoud, owner of Kaoud Rugs, explains, “Most new designers forget to visualize the room layout and measure before buying a rug. You’re just asking for trouble when buying larger rugs without measuring first!” We recommend you use blue painters tape to layout your room and visualize your rugs size on your floors. Planning your room and knowing what sizes fit best is essential to any good room design. Your guests at your next party will be sure to compliment you on your fantastic design eye!

Living Room Rugs Color & Size

Your area rug can be the crown jewel and spotlight of your room. Choosing the right area rug style can be key to finishing your interior design. Proper color contrast can draw attention to the accents in your living space. Overmatching colors will create a bland design that you will shortly grow tired of and make accent furniture stand out too much. Our suggestion is to find a rug that will compliment your room’s style and buy it!

  • Pick a main room color and 3-4 accent colors that contrast/work together. Build your room and rug choice around your color palette.
  • Pick a design style and use it as the language of the room. Try to stick with the design and contrast with accent furniture.
  • Do not be afraid try mixing styles but be conscious you do not go overboard!

You can be daring when decorating your living room with rugs. Go bold with your pattern choices and explore new colors. When decorating with area rugs you are trying to add a splash of something fun to your space. If you want animal print then try mixing in animal print rugs. If you want to mix up your color palette in the room just go for it! Be confident when decorating with area rugs. Mixing up different colors and patterns can be an easy way to improve your design!

How to remove Red Wine stains out of Rugs

Our guide on how to remove Red Wine stains out of rugs.

Spills and stains on your rug happen! It can be even more stressful when friends and family are over your house for a gathering. Our simple guide makes it easy to clean your Red Wine mess before it is a problem!

Three easy steps on how to remove Red Wine stains out of rugs or carpet:

  • Step 1: Take a clean cloth (preferably white) to simply blot up as much of the red wine stain from the rug as you can. Avoid vigorous rubbing of the wine stain. We believe you should focus on slowly working the stain and making sure to soak up as much wine as you can. The more of the wine stain you initially soak up, the less you’ll have to remove later with cleaning solutions.
  • Step 2: When you finish blotting the rug with your cloth, pour a small amount of cold water directly on the remaining red wine stain. Your goal is now to dilute what remains of the wine stain. The cold water will also make blotting the remaining wine stain on the rug easier. Continue blotting the area until no more stain will come out.
  • Step 3: Dilute the area with a mild soap and water. You need to just keep blotting the red wine stain! We always recommend testing a small area or spot on the rug first with this mild soap.

Red Wine can be extremely tricky to spot clean if you do not get to the stain immediately. Kaoud Rugs offers Professional Rug Cleaning services that can help make your rug look new again.
