Area rugs can dramatically change the look of any space in your home. They can make a room appear larger, create an intimate area and complete your interior design. Choosing the right style of area rug can be as important as choosing the right size, which ultimately depends on what room you plan to place the rug in. Here are some ideas to help you find the area rug that can add that splash you need for a space in your home:
Living Room – A 5×8 or 7×10 area rug generally works best, especially for rugs that are used over carpet. Your entire coffee table should fit on the area rug and be as close to the same length as the furniture. If your objective is to cover most of the floor, an oversized area rug might be the best solution.
Dining Room – An area rug should not only accommodate the size of your dining table, but also cover the space that is required when the chairs are pulled out. It can be uncomfortable to sit in a chair with the front legs on a rug and the back legs are off, especially if you try to adjust the chair forward.
Bedroom – One of the benefits of using rugs in a bedroom with hard surface floors is the warmth you will get when your feet hit the floor in the morning. Therefore, your area rug should cover the space of the bed as well as your nightstands. This should give your feet plenty of landing room while keeping the nightstands level. Area rugs can also be used in the sitting area of a bedroom to create a cozy space or you can scatter smaller rugs throughout the room.
