No matter what area rugs we used to decorate our living room, it is highly recommended to use rug pad. A rug pad is used to protect our rugs and also hardwood floor (if our house is using this kind of floor) from being damaged by scratching each other when people walk on it. Besides, it also prevent our rug to slip away and keep it in place. There are a lot more ways to decorate with it, I’m only giving a few suggestion on how to decorate a living room with area rugs, you can always find them out in Google and decorate it with your own instinct. Remember, there is no fixed way on any decoration.
It is best to measure our living room space before we purchase anything from a shop; we would want to purchase a rug that fits our room space, not too big and not too small depending what we are going to use it. We can try to simulate the actual space consumed by placing a tape, book, bottle, etc., which indicate each corner of a rug. If we plan to place furniture on top, then we can use the same method to do so, especially when we want to place larger furniture like living room furniture like coffee table and sofa.

Durability – Durability is another factor to be considered while buying a living room sofa. If you are buying a sofa for a formal living room and will be rarely using it, you will most probably prefer the stylish sofa. However, if you are going to extensively use the sofa, then the color and fabric of the sofa is also to be considered. Especially when you have children or pets at home, it is most likely that the sofa will be stained. Hence a light color such as white or cream should be avoided.
Once you have your new glass table in your home, you can think of creative ways to ’dress’ your table for dinner. Soften the look of the glass by running an organza strip down the middle for dinner parties in a contrasting colour, always adding flowers as a table centre. Alternatively stick with a modern look and use metal accessories with leather placemats – the only limit is your imagination!
Main style – However your interior is to be eclectic and original, it is recommended to decide, which style will dominate. The main style should unify about 80 percents of interior. The rest of 20 percents can be used for your design experiments. When the modern style is the main one, colors of interior and furniture should mirror this fact. Impacts of other styles can be signalized with accessories like: lamps, mirrors, coffee table and decorations…And the same thing in case, when the tradition dominates – it should be marked decidedly in all interior.
