Know what room you want it to be positioned so as to know a rug's function; whether it stands as a mere floor covering or a wall décor. Pondering on a rug's function will allow you to consider the material of the rug. For rooms with heavy foot traffic like living rooms and dining areas choose a rug that is made with fibers that are resilient to dirt and stains; specifically natural fibers like wool. If you wish to use an area rug as a wall décor (like tapestries) choose rugs made of natural silk; since silk tends to last better than other natural materials because of its delicate and lustrous quality.
Just about any home can be improved with the use of area rugs of good design and quality. These bound carpets come in many sizes from 2 feet by 3 feet to room size or common sizes like 6 foot by 9 feet or 4 feet by 6 feet. They come round square rectangular oval and in runners for steps and hallways. Wall to wall carpet in 12 and 15 foot goods can be cut and bound into area rugs or the makers can weave or tuft these small carpets as the end result. Where ever you need a little break from hard surface flooring or to cover a worn area in carpet consider adding an area rug.
Who says size doesn't matter? Who would want to choose a rug that is so undersized or too big? Standard sized rugs such as 3 x 5's and 4 x 6's are usually placed in rooms to accentuate furniture and inglenooks. These rugs and even smaller can also be used in entry ways kitchens and bathrooms as a floor mat. Larger rugs like 6 x 9's and 9 x 12's are commonly used for living rooms and dining rooms. Again know where you want the rug to be placed.
