Area Rugs and Carpet
Shy away from area rugs in small rooms, as they tend to make rooms appear smaller by breaking up the floor space. In smaller rooms, opt for wall to wall flooring instead. For floor treatments, choose what you like regardless of color. Light or dark flooring options are appropriate for large or small rooms.
If you like two area rugs and can’t decide between them, but you only have space for one. Why not get them both in different sizes and layer them… one right on top of the other. Providing of course, that they work well with each other and make the space seem more interesting as opposed to busy and cluttered.
Don’t think you have to go solid with wall-to-wall carpet, prints and patterns can add life to a space and become a major design feature within the room.
