Here you will find some generally accepted guidelines for selecting an area rug that will fit your space well and perfectly accent your living area, but do keep in mind that personal preferences should trump any type of rules put forth by the rug industry or interior designers.
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.
Bathroom Rugs. While many people opt for traditional bath mats in their bathrooms, area rugs can completely change the look of the room and transform it from a utilitarian space to an extension of the overall interior design of your home. An area rug is not necessarily any more difficult to care for than a bath mat and will bring an air of elegance and a completely new design dimension into the space. Because bathrooms often have limited floor space, you will want to select a rug that will accommodate all of your bathroom fixtures and furnishings, while leaving a border of at least two to four inches on all sides.
