Here you will find some generally accepted guidelines for selecting an area rug that will fit your space well and perfectly accent your living area, but do keep in mind that personal preferences should trump any type of rules put forth by the rug industry or interior designers.
Specialized usage rugs. Bath rugs or mats take their place beside a bath tub or shower to prevent slippage when stepping out of the shower enclosure. Bath rugs must be constructed of a material which is cleanable or even washable, as otherwise, moisture soap and bacteria are trapped in the fibers and may lead to disease. For this reason the rugs in the kitchen or bath and sometimes a hallway or stair rug is general a discount area rug.
Rug composition. Rugs are made of many different materials. Many of them today, thanks to the development of synthetic fibers are inexpensive to own. Cheap area rugs can be used in spaces where there is much more traffic and where the rug may need to be replaced occasionally. Cheap area rugs do not need to look cheap. The man made materials often have more variety than more expensive Persian rugs. Persian rugs are known for their beauty and durability, but may be beyond the budget of many homeowners. Discount rugs are often made of synthetic fiber which repels water better than Persian rugs so may be more appropriate as kitchen rugs or bathroom rugs.
