Area rugs. A rug can define an area within a larger space, for example area rugs in a living room may make a conversation piece when surrounded by a seating arrangement of couches and chairs. Another small area rug could be placed in an area for television watching or for listening to music. Sometimes people will use an area rug beneath a dining room table to enhance the beauty of the furniture as well as to further anchor the space. A more "country" type décor will often use a braided rug to go with western style furniture, while an oriental rug is usually thought of in a more formal designed room.
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.
An area rug is often the defining feature of a room and, with this in mind, should be selected with care. The rug you choose will set the tone for the overall feel of the space and will be the factor that ties in all of the different components of the décor. If you have a large space that is divided into more than one area of use, rugs can bring these spaces together as a harmonious whole, or can be used to further define the different regions of the room to give the feel of separate living areas.
