Naturally enough, the colour of your rug is generally the first thing you will think about. Next to your wall colour and your sofa, the rug in your room will be the next largest shot of colour in the room.

According to many interior designers, homeowners make the mistake of choosing a rug that’s too small for the room. Rather than having a rug that looks like an afterthought, always go larger when imaging how the rug will look in your room. It’s much better to have a rug that’s a little too large, than one that’s too small.
