And not only that, because of its versatility and usefulness, an area rug can not only emphasize a room but also divide two rooms that are openly connected and seem to have the same theme. And since they don't need prior installation, they can easily be replaced when redecorating or even brought along with during a move of residence.
If you're using an area rug in a room, don't cover your floor completely. Your original floors will make a nice border to your rug. Even when you want to use a large rug, subtract at least 9-12 inches from your baseboards so that some of your flooring will show through. Finally, always use a non-ski rug pad underneath area rugs to prevent movement of the rug. The rug pad should be about 2 inches smaller than the rug so that it doesn't show through.
There are three reasons that using a quality rug pad is important. First off, this goes a long way in making sure that your rug is durable and lasts for years on end. If your rug is simply laid on top of wood or concrete, it is going to wear quickly. And while you may not notice this early on, as time goes by, you will surely be able to tell that your rug is beginning to wear out. To avoid this, make sure that the proper rug pad is used. And if you are not the one doing the installation, you should make sure that you still know what is going on. After all, once your rug is in place there is no possible way to determine with 100 percent accuracy as to if the right pad was used. In fact, the only way that you could do this would be by lifting the entire rug; a process that you probably do not want to get involved with.
