Picking the Best Area Rug for Your Home

A gorgeous area rug can brighten up your room, add drama, and be a great conversation piece. However, with so many options such as arts and crafts style rugs, rustic area rugs, Oriental styles, and so many more, it can get difficult picking one!

Read on to learn some tips on picking the best area rug for your space!

Size is the most important thing you will need to consider. Most people go by the rule that the rug should be two feet shorter than the smallest wall in the room.

Rugs Near a Door

If you are thinking of putting the rug near a door, you will want to swing the door open and measure the floor from that point. You should make sure that at least three feet remains clear from the door.

Rugs in a Hall

Rugs that you are putting in a hall should be big enough that six inches shows on all sides.

Rugs in a Dining Room

If you are placing an area rug in your dining room, you will want it to extend at least eighteen inches beyond the edge of the table. This is so that the rug can accommodate the dining room chairs.

Rugs in a Bedroom

For area rugs in your bedroom, you should consider runners on each side of the bed and the foot of the bed. You can also place a rug one-third of the way under the bed so that the rug makes a nice decorative mat at the bottom.
