If you are going to place a large rug in the bedroom. it need not be centered but the same amount of floor should be visible on two or three sides of it. In the dining room. the rug should extend eighteen inches to twenty-four inches beyond the table. An eight- by ten-foot rug will work in most living rooms and dining rooms. A six- by four-foot or a six- by nine-foot rug will be fine if it is for a small area. such as under a coffee table. in which case. the entire coffee table should be on it and all other furniture set back from it at an equal distance.
If you are using your rug for areas of the home where furniture is going to be placed on them. make sure that you are not choosing to use rugs which have long tufts. This is because the furniture will create depressions in the surface of the rug. For this type of usage pick rugs which are short tufted and have very tightly hooked fibers. For framing furniture make sure that you choose a rug which has simple or geometric designs.
If a rug is to be the focal point of a room. consider purchasing one with a central medallion. which is a popular design for an oriental rug. If the medallion will be hidden for the most part by a piece of furniture - the dining room table or a bed. for example - forget the medallion and select a rug that has an allover design. or one with detail on its borders.
Rugs are not supposed to be restricted to the floor only. They can be hung from the walls and can be used to cover the beds. The guest rooms and the children`s rooms can be the most suitable places for rugs. The floor rugs would be able to make the atmosphere more suitable for the guests since a new room would never be too inviting for anybody. When the rugs are placed under the beds they add warmth to the total atmosphere of the room.
