The idea is to keep furnishings and accents to a minimum. Generally, all the pieces in the room will have their space and function and nothing more is added.

Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.

Unlike hard wood floors that tend to bounce off the sounds of your televisions or mp3 players, area rugs and carpets help suck up the noise. Sound reduction is helpful especially to those who live in apartment buildings. This would prevent your neighbors from knocking on your door and disturb you watching your favorite TV shows just to shut you up.

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.

You can even arrange the furniture in the room so guests can take a seat and contemplate the beauty in front of them.
