If you have hard floors, a rug is ideal. This is not only to soften the space but it adds warmth & dulls the noise as well. Rugs are great for zoning lounge room spaces in open planned living. They should be large & fit under the fronts of the sofas to tie them together as a set. You can keep them neutral or add crazy colours or patterns.
They can be a great space for children or pets to play in a contained area & are easy to take away & clean if they get messy.
