Do Round Rugs Make a Room Look Bigger

Round rugs can make a room look bigger if they are chosen in a light color, like beige, grey, off-white or light blue, and are large enough to serve as area rugs. When choosing a round area rug, it is a good idea to leave one to two feet of space between the rug and the walls. Round rugs of all sizes can be placed under furniture, like tables, to distinguish a room’s style, but if the rug is intended to stand alone, it is a good idea to leave one to two feet of space between the rug and the surrounding furniture. If you are furnishing an already large space, brighter colors like pink, red and bold blue can transform a round rug into the focal point of your room’s design. Small round rugs can also pack a big punch in bathroom spaces and can even complement an elegant bathroom lighting design.
