How to choose the perfect rug

· ·
A beautiful rug can do wonders for a space. It has the ability to make a room, hallway, or an open plan living area feel balanced, comfortable and pleasing to the eye. While it can make a room feel spacious and cosy, it can also offset the balance of the room if you choose the wrong size for your space. Here are a few tips you will be glad to know before choosing your new gorgeous rug.
Thanks to Armadillo & Co for their wonderfully helpful Rug Placement Guide.

  1. Leave approximately 18-20inches of bare floor between the rug and the walls if you're going for a large statement rug.
ARMADILLO RUG IN DINING AREA
  1. If you're choosing a rug for your dining area, make sure the rug is large enough for all of the chairs to sit entirely on top while leaving enough space to get in and out of the chairs comfortably.
