Is the rug too small for the room?
April 6, 2014 in Design Dilemma
4 of the couches recline so will not be adding a table or ottoman

It is. A better size would extend just a bit beyond the edges of the sectional.

Would be better if there is no rug since you are not planning on a coffee table or ottoman.

Hi! Here are a few ideas for you. I think that you may want to lighten the color up on the rug to brighten the space:

Hope this helps!

The room is very open and big and I was trying to get some carpet down for kids.
I know "rule" of rugs is it should go under your couch, but with cost and the fact that my couches all recline I don't think its necessary. I was just trying to get feed back if it looked okay.

I do think the rug is too small. Understand the budget dilemma. You would be better off getting a piece of broadloom carpet cut and bound to cover more of the space. Some carpet stores will have remnants that can be bound - and at a savings since basically it is left over material. This will be kid friendly as well. Your rug looks to be about a 6x9. Could you get a 12x12 piece made for the same $ you spent on the rug (and return the rug)? I would go with a medium tan to lighten the space.

I think it's fine, especially because it's for the kids. Sometimes function trumps the rules of design.

Sadly, it is too small… I

agree carpet will make the floor more comfortable for your children. Keep working on this project.

The carpet store in our town sells bound carpet "scraps" which are room size for about $100. There are inexpensive options out there. Look for something else and you and your kids will both be pleased.

Happy Decorating!
