SHF: 5 Area Rug Placement Ideas To Inspire

Rugs are more than just decorative accents; they are functional pieces that tie a room together. Whether you’re furnishing a living room, bedroom, dining area, or any other space, proper rug placement can make all the difference in the ambience and functionality of the room. Here, we’ll explore some rug placement ideas with some of our favourite collections from SHF Living.

When it comes to living room rugs and area rugs throughout your home, considering rug placement and size is key. Area rugs are a terrific alternative to wall-to-wall carpets, namely because they’re easier to remove and clean. But the key is finding the right living room rug placement, which will be determined by the furniture in the space, as well as the room size, the style of the rug, and the rug type and material. Each of these factors will help guide exactly where to place the rug.

5 Rug Placement Ideas

Extend Rugs Under Furniture:

Make sure the rug extends under all key pieces of furniture in the room, creating a cohesive look that anchors the space.

Go Big If You Want Your Living Room to Feel Larger:

Contrary to intuition, a larger rug can make a room seem more spacious. Ensure that your entire couch or sectional fits on the rug, leaving about 6 inches of floor space around the perimeter.

Cover High-Traffic Areas:

Protect your floors by ensuring that thoroughfares are fully covered by the rug. This helps prevent wear and tear, scratches, and premature floor refinishing.

Leave Equal Space:

Maintain consistent floor space on all sides of the rug. Ensure that the sofa is centred on the rug, allowing the front legs of both sides of the couch to land on it.

Consider Rug Pad Needs:

Choose the right rug pad to keep your rug in place, provide added cushioning where needed, and protect flooring. It’s advisable to buy a slightly larger rug pad than your area rug and trim it down to size for a perfect fit.
