A large rug is often the best option in a living room, but you’ll need to position it right.

Pop your rug on the floor by your sofa and armchairs, front legs on the rug and back legs off –to create a cosy but sophisticated feel.


CHOOSING A LIVING ROOM RUG

Take a look at your living room before buying a rug and plan what size of rug you will need and where the rug will go.

If your living room is open-plan, you can use rugs to zone different areas such as dining and living spaces.

Consider the tone and style of your existing decor, for rustic interiors natural fibres such as wool and jute work well and for modern interiors a viscose or silk will have a beautiful sheen.

TREND 01:
AREA RUG LAYERING

This popular interior styling has been featured and noted multiple times this year in leading interior magazines. Consider buying two or more area rugs of the same colour tone and layering them on top of each other. To carry off this trend successfully, keep to thin style rugs such as kilims and flat-weaves.


TREND 02:
AREA RUGS FOR READING NOOKS

As homes have become more multi-functional spaces, reading nooks have risen in popularity as an interior feature.

This is a space you can have fun with and use pattern and colour in your area rugs.

Opt for a deep pile so it's comfy for the kids to sit on and have story time.

The reading nook rug should be place in the corner of the room or somewhere cosy you can relax.

Scatter some cushions around the reading nook area rug for additional comfort.


TREND 03:
VINTAGE RUGS

As far as living room rug ideas go, nothing is more classy than a large traditional or mosaic pinned centre of the room.

These are statement rugs, rugs that want to be noticed and adored.

Vintage rugs look great in both traditional and modern living rooms, and even if you did want to mix a vintage rug with a modern room )or vice versa), it would give your room a truly unique design – not one straight from a catalogue.



TREND 04:
RUGS FOR RENTERS

This living room rug idea is ideal for those who are renting and aren’t too impressed with the flooring in their living room.

Buying a large quality rug can help mask any imperfections of the property’s flooring or simply give the room a complete makeover.

The key with this type rug idea is to go big and make sure your living room furniture fits comfortably on the rug.




TREND 05:
GO NEUTRAL

For the neutral lovers out there, choose a rug that blends nicely with your living room’s existing colour palette.

A neutral coloured rug won’t be a stand-out piece in your living room, but will instead bring the room together.

For example, if your living room is predominantly blue with a mix of whites and woods, you want a rug that compliments that.





TREND 06:
BERBER STYLE

This heavily textured rug is a great backdrop to a living room looking for character. Berber rugs have been popular as living rooms rugs for many years and this trend isn't going anywhere. Their neutrals tones work with any colour scheme, and their plush pile makes them wonderfully luxurious underfoot. The irregular diamond pattern on this hand-tufted rug only adds to its charm.




TREND 07:
WOOL PEBBLE DESIGN

This knotted design is simple but the pile on this rug is thick and textured to add depth to your living room. Opt for a colour in this design that it can fit into pretty much any decor scheme, whether that be boho, contemporary or even modern. Versatile! It’s also made from wool by skilled craftsmen and it feels nice and soft. The Hardin hand rug (shown) is 100% New Zealand and European wools, and it's oversized tubular threads adds a modern twist to your home.


TREND 08:
3D RUG DESIGNS

3D designs on rugs are achieved by cutting the pile at different heights, or removing it in parts completely. This makes it look more expensive while its 3D effect should make your room look a bit larger. Hand-carved with a hexagonal pattern prove to be the most trendy, boasting a thick and soft pile.

This style of rug will make a brilliant focal point in your living room. This Starburst rug has beautiful pile height detail.



TREND 09:
ARTISAN DESIGNS

This on-trend and cosy artisan Zeal Rug, choose from 4 sizes and place it in the centre of a room – perhaps beside your sofa, with your coffee table on top.

Alternatively, it would make a lovely addition to a bedroom thanks to its plush nature and cosy feel.


The Zeal rug has an abstract design with a fashionable colour palette that is designed to suit a contemporary room setting



TREND 10:
EASY CARE RUGS

Stylish and durable, this area rug has a detailed pattern that complements many interior styles. It is made from stain-resistant fibres in a flatweave design, making it durable enough to withstand a high amount of foot traffic. It can also be used on floors that have underfloor heating.
