Living in a bachelor apartment (or any open-concept living space) requires some savvy decorating ideas otherwise the entire space can feel cluttered and disorienting. My small space apartment, for example, not only needs to address furniture size, but placement, too. The first thing I did when I moved into this apartment was to determine "areas". How much space would I allot for my living room, dining room and bedroom? Did I even need a dining area or would a dual-purpose home office/eating nook be more useful? Would my furniture be enough to even distinguish these spaces? So many questions! My answer? Area rugs. They are such an easy and affordable solution to these layout issues. I've rounded up four fabulously graphic rugs (I'm on a graphic black-and-white kick at the moment), all under $200. Check out all four options and tell me which one is your first pick in a comment below! 1 Stockholm rug IKEA, $199 (7'10" x 5'7"). 2 Kite wool kilim rug West Elm, $147.79 (3' x 5'). 3 Simple Morocco rug Target, $199 (5' x 7'). 4 Lappljung Ruta rug IKEA, $89 (5'7" x 5'7"). Do you have a favourite? Tell me which one!
