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.
Adding area rugs is a great way to personalize a room, whether at home or in the office. Not only do they add shade and creative design to a room, they also enhance a room's mood and character. But besides its normal purpose as a floor covering, although rarely happening, a few people use area rugs as a wall décor instead of paintings. This is possible of course because of the wide range of designs, colors, shapes and sizes to choose from. Provided that you are an adventurous person and willing to try something new, you can frame it up and hang it to accentuate the other walls.
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.
