Finding The Right Area Rug For Your Home

Thinking of a area rug for your dining room, bedroom, office, living room or any other room in your
home we have found some of the nicest rugs on the market for you. Area rugs are practical, providing cushion, comfort and warmth over a concrete, tile or wood floor. But they also provide artistic value to a room’s design. Considered artwork for the floor, which acts as the frame, size does matter and it’s important to create that well-balanced space.
I may start with the area rug first, from its design, I choose wall paint colors and find throw pillows, accesories, and paintings to complete the decor.
If you use a round area rug in a large foyer, center it under the light fixture. In a hallway, stretch the length to fill the space, leaving even space on both ends for balance. And if you plan to place any furniture in the hallway, keep it off the rug.
Rule of thumb: Choose a rug that is two feet shorter than the smallest wall in the room. So for a 10 x 12-foot room, I look at rugs no more than eight feet wide. For our bare front hallway, I swing open the front door and then measure the floor from that point, so the first three feet or so remain clear. Hall rugs should have at least six inches of floor showing on all sides.
Dining room rugs should extend at least 18 inches beyond the edge of the table so that the rug accommodates the dining chairs. In bedrooms, try runners at each side and even the foot of the bed, or place a rug one-third of the way under the bed so the rest of the rug creates a nice mat at the bottom of the bed.
