The first step towards choosing your perfect rug is to determine the correct size. The rug is the foundation of the room and the invisible wall in open plan living. When the rug is the right size it will create elegance and harmony in the space by connecting all the elements into one story.
In open plan living areas, the rug becomes the fifth wall, and is key to defining areas within rooms. For example the rug in the sitting area defines the space as separate from the dining area. This anchors each space, completing the room so it feels finished.
A tip to remember is that while a couch can sit halfway on the rug, any occasional chairs should be completely on the rug.
