Shopping for the perfect area rug for your space is an exciting endeavor, particularly considering the impact the rug will have on the overall look of the room. While these guidelines are good to keep in mind to ensure you end up happy with your purchase, remember to have fun with the rug selection process and choose a rug that speaks to you and your personal sense of style.
Area rugs. A rug can define an area within a larger space, for example area rugs in a living room may make a conversation piece when surrounded by a seating arrangement of couches and chairs. Another small area rug could be placed in an area for television watching or for listening to music. Sometimes people will use an area rug beneath a dining room table to enhance the beauty of the furniture as well as to further anchor the space. A more "country" type décor will often use a braided rug to go with western style furniture, while an oriental rug is usually thought of in a more formal designed room.
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.
