What size rug, colour, style should I get to make this room appear larger
This is a combined sitting/dining room with a walk through in the middle. The blue couches are going and will be replaced with probably a charcoal Gray modern three seater. Two white wing back chairs will sit either side of the coffee table which is staying.
I'm trying to make this space cosy but larger. So what size rug do I get? Should everything fit within the rug? Or partially (so some items within the rug, some outside, or a bit of both?). I was thinking a soft Gray or soft muted blue with white or cream through it. I like geometric patterns but will that overpower this area and make it smaller? Or should I go for something like a soft Gray shag?
