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.
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.
Focal Point. Use an area rug to create a focal point in your room. A family room rec room games room or living room are all excellent candidates for a focal point area rug. If you have a games room a rectangular rug beneath the pool table looks awesome. If you have a fireplace an area rug in front of the fireplace adds elegance and luxury and it's a comfy place to sit and enjoy the fire. Now an area rug has another benefit. It will save wear and tear on your carpet especially if you place it in the high traffic areas. Choose something that stands out from your room decor or blends in. Your choice let your creative juices flow.
