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.

Color-wise, rugs that are placed on receiving areas should have a light and soft shade; thus, giving the room a warm and cozy feel. Should you place rugs under dark-colored furniture that you intend to make the center of attraction, make sure you select lighter toned rugs and simpler designs to highlight the fixtures. This also works with hardwood floors of darker shades. Nonetheless, if you plan to set an area rug as the focal point of the room, select rugs with intense colors and intricate designs; provided that the rooms motif is simple and wouldn't contrast with the rug's pattern.

Many of them today, thanks to the development of synthetic fibers are inexpensive to own.

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.
