There are no strict rules, but some suggestions can help make the space more inviting. It depends on the home. For small living rooms, positioning the furniture such as a couch, a coffee table and an armchair all on the same rug will give the idea of a larger space. When placing the rug in the center of the seating area, position it 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 inches) from the couch’s border.
Rug areas can define different spaces within the home, especially in lofts. However, they should have a fluid quality as well that can be achieved, for example, by using organic shaped rugs (such as the UltraNative and Cobblestone collections). It would be ideal to bring a floor plan when purchasing a rug to better determine the perfect rug dimensions and placement.
