In light of a new decorative purchase, I would like to present a before and after example of my T.V.-free family living room space. I have been waiting 4 years to buy a rug because it wasn't a priority and let me tell you what a great difference it has made. It makes the space appear more inviting and gives off the feeling of coziness!
I touch base on just how much of a difference a living room rug can make in one of my first blog posts if you want more information, here's the link : "Very Useful, Go-To Interior Design Diagrams".
Look for yourself:
Above is a photo with the new rug in place.
Below, without the rug.
The rug is from Costco.ca and it is huge: 10 ft. 2 in. x 7 ft. 10 in! Costing in at about $480 with tax and shipping.
Here is a picture of it below from the website (ecarpetgallery Labrador Cream Shag Area Rug):
This new rug is fun and comfortable. Also the price is incomparable to other stores. I waited and waited for a rug that fit my budget then remembered that Costco probably had newer selections from when I checked last. Sure enough, they had a boatload of new rugs at incomparable prices!
I hope you enjoyed this demonstration of how much of a difference an appropriate-sized rug can make. Check out the diagrams in the link above to see what size would be best for your space. Simultaneously, the diagrams can be very entertaining in terms of what not to do! Good luck and have fun!
