Bonus Tips

Be intentional. Make sure your furniture intersects with your rug in a way that looks like you did it on purpose. This means either overlapping the front of your furniture on top of the rug or making sure there is space in front of your furniture for some breathing room around the rug.

Don't be scared of color. If the room is lacking pigment, your rug could be the perfect place to add a splash of color. Adding accessories and art that complement the rug color is the perfect way to tie it in to the room's palette.
