Our family recently moved into beautiful new home that contained all wood floors in the main living area. This was quite an adjustment for all of us, as we had spent the last four years living in a home with wall to wall carpeting . As gorgeous as wood floors can be, they just don’t provide the cozy home feeling that I was going for. No matter how many ways I rearrange furniture or added decor, the living room just seemed to be lacking a comforting atmosphere for our family. I decided that the only way we could take this plain room and turn it into a room that our family could comfortably relax together in, we would have to add a rug.
Having no prior experience with shopping for area rugs, I was delighted to have an employee from Rugs USA provide me with very useful advice. The first step was choosing the size rug I wanted for the living room, which meant I needed to decide on the placement of the rug. I decided that since we had an open setup in our living room (and the back of the couch was exposed) it would look more appealing if the couch was completely over the rug. Taking into account the measurement of the couch, I then measured the area in front of our couch. I wanted to make sure that I still had plenty of rug area in front of the couch and ultimately an 8×10 was going to provide that.
So here is the living room without the area rug and as you can see, it’s just not cozy, comforting or welcoming. Not yet a place where a family could go to have a lazy movie night.
Here is a photo of what our loving room looks with the new area rug, what a difference! The Rugs USA Venice Shaggy Curves Cream Rug has given us enough room to place the couch on top of it, tons of rug left over in front of the couch, while still having space to place end table on each side of the couch. Not only does this rug size work for us, but the style of it has just brought the room to life. This rug is so incredibly bright, vibrant and classy, all at the same time. I am in love with the design and the shades of the rug, it could fit in practically any room.
I am so ecstatic and delighted by how much a rug has brought our living room to life. This is now a room where everyone loves to be and we actually prefer sitting on this extremely soft carpet over the couch!
Here are multiple angles of this gorgeous rug to give you an overall idea of how soft and cozy it really is!
This rug also provides hours of entertainment for a three year old that loves playing with matchbox cars. My son was very impressed that we now have a rug that includes race car tracks on it. How adorable is that?
We have had this rug for close to a month and even having it in a room where our family is in the majority of the time, the rug still looks fantastic! This rug was very well made and has not lost any of it’s integrity over time. Each and every one of us is so in love with this rug and we have a family sleepover almost once a week because the kids love sleeping on it so much! I can not express enough how impressed I am with Rugs USA and how much information they provided me with in order to give me the look I was striving for. If you are looking to give a room in your house a brand new look, I highly suggest you check out Rugs USA and add one of their beautiful rugs to your room.

I need a rug for my den, it looks blah to me, I need to add a splash of color or something. I really like the rug you got, very nice!!
Hi there! My husband and I have been considering purchasing this rug and were looking for a review on it–your post was perfect.
One question: you mentioned you got that the rug you bought was 8′ x 10′, but Rugs USA (and every other site I’ve checked) only seem to have it available in 6’7 x 9′ (smaller) or 9’2″ x 12′ (larger). Is yours a true 8′ x 10′?
Is the rug cream and beige or gray
Thank you so much for this! It was a very informative and an enjoyable read 🙂 I always like to hear other people’s views when I’m looking into things like this.
