Room-Size Rugs. When choosing room-size rugs, a good rule of thumb is to measure the room and ensure there will be approximately 18 to 24 inches of space between the rug and the wall on each side. This will help you achieve a balanced look that is not crowded or overbearing. If you are using the rug to cover a hardwood floor, this also allows some of the beauty and sheen of the base flooring to add a touch of elegance to the room by providing your guests with a glimpse of the wood around the borders of the space.
The fine wool rug is more often seen as wall to wall carpeting, but is also the main component of oriental rugs. The beauty and quality of oriental rugs is matchless, but they can be very expensive to own. Discount area rugs are sometimes made of other materials, such as hemp or cotton, but these are commonly used for a specialized purpose such as kitchen rugs or bathroom rugs.
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.
