Save Carpet In Children's Room. Kids can be hard on their carpet in their rooms and carpet is so expensive to replace. Using an area rug you can accomplish a few things. You can save wear and tear and staining of the carpet. You can add extra cushioning to the floor area keeping it warmer and comfortable. And you can let the kids have some fun and participate in decorating their room. You can even choose a theme and give their entire room a new look.
Dining Room Rugs. When selecting dining room area rugs, many people purchase rugs that are actually too small for this purpose. While some rug buyers focus primarily on the relationship of the size of the rug to the size of the dining room table, the space required for the chairs when they are in use is often overlooked. For example, if your rug expands only to the back legs of your dining room chairs when they are pushed in under the table, this might look lovely when the dining room is not in use, but it will become an issue when hosting a dinner party, or even simply having your nightly family meal.
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.
