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.
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.
When the chairs are pulled out from the table to be used, all of the legs should remain on your dining room area rug, which means your rug needs to be big enough to accommodate a space larger than the footprint of your table with the chairs pushed in. A good rule for this is to seek out an area rug for your dining room that is at least four feet wider and longer than the footprint of your dining set.
