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.
Area rugs are a great way to show your more adventurous side. Bold and colourful patterns may take you out of your comfort zone, but they are a great piece for adding a bit of the unexpected to a room. Still, you'll want to choose colours that blend with other design elements of your room so that even as a focal point your rug ties in with your overall décor.
Antique rugs generally are more fragile than newer rugs, yet they are usually more valuable. In order to maintain your investment, you should follow proper care such as the right cleaning, rotation once a year and the right rug pad. Not all rug pads will protect your antique rug and carpet as best as possible.
