Entrances. Most people think area rugs are too large for an entrance but they are available in the smaller sizes. So whether you have a grand entrance or a smaller entrance you should consider making a decor statement where people enter. You could place a beautiful oval braided rug at your entrance or a bold rectangular rug. Make it blend or stand out. Your choice. An area rug at your entrance also has some function use as well. The worst thing for your carpets is oil dirt and sand. Even a clean pair of shoes will track particles onto the carpet. Using an area rug will help reduce what gets tracked because it will act as a catcher. If you have a tiled or linoleum entrance it will also keep it looking cleaner as the rug can pick up the dirt or mud off of shoes and it's easily cleaner up with a vacuum.
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.
