But first, let’s talk about all the reasons why it may be a good choice to prefer round rugs for sale over the square, rectangular, or oval ones.

Why Get a Round Rug for Your Home?

Wherever you may place it, a round handmade rug can instantly uplift its surroundings and add a playful vibe to the entire décor.

However, it can be a bit tricky to arrange your furniture around a round area rug. But don’t worry, these home styling inspirations are just what a round rug owner needs:

  1. Adjust Your Furniture on Top of the Rug

The most striking and unexpected feature of a round rug is the fact that it’s a welcoming shift from the conventional rug shapes and styles. Whatever the nature of your floors, walls, furnishings, and furniture may be, a round rug would always stand out, as it’s doing in this image below:

While placing your rug under a dining table such as this remember to make sure that your rug is of the right size. In other words, it should be big enough to incorporate the entire set of table and chairs over it. Moreover, check and ensure that there’s some extra rug extending from all sides so that the chairs won’t slide off of the rug when pulled out. Remember, no one wants to sit on an unbalanced and wobbly chair while they’re having dinner.

  1. The ‘Round Rug’ Space

Do you wish to have a peaceful reading spot near the window but find it hard to adjust the furniture there? A round handmade rug can be used as the anchor for your décor!

However, before you go with this décor style, don’t forget to take proper dimensions of your room so that you don’t accidently get a rug that’s too small or too big.

In case of a rug that’s smaller than the size needed, you can either return or exchange it, or try the latest rug layering technique by placing the round rug over a larger area rug to cover up the empty space.

When we say round rugs look great under round furniture, we don’t mean you can’t pull off a round rug if the bed you have isn’t round!

The trick to placing a circular rug under a rectangular bed is finding and buying the right size of carpet – jus big enough to extend outwards from under your bed, but not too big to make the bed appear small.
