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.
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 buy a rug for the bathroom. make sure the colors are compatible with the color of the bathmat. (Or buy a new bathmat.) It is also important that a rug in the bathroom not be adversely affected by moisture especially if it will be underfoot when you step out of the shower or bath. Maintenance is an important consideration when choosing rugs not only for the bathroom. but also the kitchen. the hall. or the room of a child. Select designs and colors that don`t show the dirt. and are stain resistant and easy to clean.
If the room has an early American theme. a round braided rug. popular since the early settlement of North America. will probably be very suitable. Using a Navajo rug. with its geometric designs and flat weave. can reinforce a southern or desert theme. If your tastes run more to the comfort and appeal of animal fur or wool. forget the tiger skin and look for a flokati rug - a hand-woven Greek woolen rug with a thick. shaggy pile - it may create just the look you want.
