1) Living Room

Arrange your furniture so that it either all rests on the rug, or place the front two legs of all the furniture on the rug- so that it is half on, half off.

When choosing a rug for your living room, make sure you leave 12"- 36" between the rug and the wall. This will make the space feel covered and anchored but not crowded.

Wool rugs are great because they are durable, naturally stain resisted and good for higher traffic areas. Jute and sisal are great layered underneath something softer underfoot.

Layering Rugs:

-When layering rugs make sure the layered rug is close to 2/3 the size of the first rug

-When possible have end tables on rug to avoid stability issues

-Typical sizes for layered rugs are 8x10, 6x9, 5x8
