I'd like a more modern look in our family room. Carpet old and has to go. It's so dated. Any advice on an area rug that's brighter, still good for a dog, and more modern?
You can view what it will look like in your room using excel.
Step 1 - copy a picture of the room using the windows snipping tool
Step 2 - paste the picture into excel and add a freeform shape where you want the rug (click where you want it to start and then at each corner going around furniture until you have reached your starting point)
Step 3 - go back to the internet and snip a picture of the rug and press copy
Step 4 - return to excel - right click on the shape and select format shape
Select Fill - Picture or texture fill - and Clipboard
