The rug you choose will set the tone for the overall feel of the space and will be the factor that ties in all of the different components of the décor. If you have a large space that is divided into more than one area of use rugs can bring these spaces together as a harmonious whole or can be used to further define the different regions of the room to give the feel of separate living areas.

A rug can define an area within a larger space for example area rugs in a living room may make a conversation piece when surrounded by a seating arrangement of couches and chairs. Another small area rug could be placed in an area for television watching or for listening to music. Sometimes people will use an area rug beneath a dining room table to enhance the beauty of the furniture as well as to further anchor the space. A more "country" type décor will often use a braided rug to go with western style furniture while an oriental rug is usually thought of in a more formal designed room.

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.

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.

Know what room you want it to be positioned so as to know a rug's function; whether it stands as a mere floor covering or a wall décor. Pondering on a rug's function will allow you to consider the material of the rug. For rooms with heavy foot traffic like living rooms and dining areas choose a rug that is made with fibers that are resilient to dirt and stains; specifically natural fibers like wool. If you wish to use an area rug as a wall décor (like tapestries) choose rugs made of natural silk; since silk tends to last better than other natural materials because of its delicate and lustrous quality.

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.
