Area rugs come in so many different and unique styles it's sometimes hard to decide which type would best suit your needs. You may have an idea in mind as to which type of rug you'd like to purchase. Or you may need more detailed information to make the right choice. Some styles are named after the region or area where they originated. Others are known for certain characteristics or specific uses. Let's look at three different styles that hopefully will help you make an informed decision when shopping for a special rug.
Ideally, your rug should be slightly smaller than the area covered by furniture. Moreover, area rugs should be large enough to set the gathering space while allowing circulation space. Depending on the designer and the space, your rug may vary significantly in size. Nevertheless, a good rule of thumb is to allow the front legs of chairs and sofas to be placed on the rug.
Protects the floor: Area-rugs can cause scratches to floors. The dust and dirt particles that collect beneath a carpet can easily scratch a floor when it is walked on. Pads under the rugs prevent this from happening.
