Deciding on the best size rug is extremely important in a more compact living room. Using too big of your rug will conclude seeming like the primary flooring, or carpet, in an area. Using too small of the rug can look like an afterthought and unplanned design factor. You won't have right effect on your decorating as a well thought out and organized rug. Essentially you should look for a rug that is large enough to protect the guts of the floor, but not too large that all of the furniture along the perimeter of the area rests fully on top of it.
