Area rugs are ideal for protecting wood or tile floors and bring warmth, texture and depth to any space they occupy. Choosing the area rug that is right for your space, your lifestyle and your décor preferences is largely a matter of personal taste, and the only real rules that should be followed are those guidelines you establish for what you want out of your area rugs and what will work best for you and your family.
Bathroom Rugs. While many people opt for traditional bath mats in their bathrooms, area rugs can completely change the look of the room and transform it from a utilitarian space to an extension of the overall interior design of your home. An area rug is not necessarily any more difficult to care for than a bath mat and will bring an air of elegance and a completely new design dimension into the space. Because bathrooms often have limited floor space, you will want to select a rug that will accommodate all of your bathroom fixtures and furnishings, while leaving a border of at least two to four inches on all sides.
Who says size doesn't matter? Who would want to choose a rug that is so undersized or too big? Standard sized rugs, such as 3 x 5's and 4 x 6's, are usually placed in rooms to accentuate furniture and inglenooks. These rugs, and even smaller, can also be used in entry ways, kitchens and bathrooms as a floor mat. Larger rugs, like 6 x 9's and 9 x 12's, are commonly used for living rooms and dining rooms. Again, know where you want the rug to be placed.
