It can be hard to decorate and design a living room, especially if that living room is on the small side. While there are many factors that go into designing a living room, one ideal way to start the process is by choosing a rug. But how do you choose a rug that fits stylistically with the room, and how do you determine the layout and size of the rug? Fortunately, we've got some tips and tricks that you can use whether you're starting your living room from scratch or you're looking for a new way to style what you already have.
Light and bright rooms are great, but sometimes, you just need a little bit of drama. Going with darker walls and flooring definitely helps set that mood. However, don't feel like you need to match the wall color; you can go with a different color entirely, or you can choose a color that's in the same family but different hue. This room has blue/gray walls with a teal blue rug, which works since they're both in the blue family and they're both deeper shades of color. When you're looking to mix colors, make sure that they share the same mood so that the space is cohesive.
Modern coastal style can fit well into small spaces and large spaces alike, given a few principles. The obvious coastal connections in this room include the wood walls, palm fan, driftwood, and natural materials, but it doesn't stop there. When you're designing a modern coastal living room, find opportunities to include coastal colors like blue, even if that blue leans into another color like blue/gray or blue/green. Using those tones in the rug is a nice, subtle way to add in that style without the room screaming "beach house."

Completely filling a room with a rug, especially a rug with a pattern, is a neat way to fill the room with style. You may be wondering how that differs from just carpeting the room, but using a rug instead gives you a lot more flexibility with changing it out when the time comes and using stylish patterns like the one in this living room. With a large rug, you also have more freedom with furniture placement, so you can truly optimize your space with your style and functionality in mind.
Working from home is becoming more and more common, and sometimes, the living room is the perfect place to set up your work desk. One perfect way to connect that work area to the rest of the living room is to use a rug. The rug shown here is placed beneath the desk chair, and then it extends backward behind it into the rest of the living space. Not only does it literally connect the desk chair to the sofa, but it also serves as a color inspiration for tying those two areas together. Whatever your living room office situation is, look for ways to tie it to the rest of the room with color and rug placement.
Stylizing your small living room with a rug doesn't have to be some gargantuan task that is daunting and frustrating. By finding commonalities between your rug and your accessories and by being intentional with your rug placement and sizing, you can fill your small living room with style and create a space that you'll love each and every day.
