Room-Size Rugs. When choosing room-size rugs, a good rule of thumb is to measure the room and ensure there will be approximately 18 to 24 inches of space between the rug and the wall on each side. This will help you achieve a balanced look that is not crowded or overbearing. If you are using the rug to cover a hardwood floor, this also allows some of the beauty and sheen of the base flooring to add a touch of elegance to the room by providing your guests with a glimpse of the wood around the borders of the space.
Save Carpet In Children's Room. Kids can be hard on their carpet in their rooms and carpet is so expensive to replace. Using an area rug you can accomplish a few things. You can save wear and tear and staining of the carpet. You can add extra cushioning to the floor area keeping it warmer and comfortable. And you can let the kids have some fun and participate in decorating their room. You can even choose a theme and give their entire room a new look.
When the chairs are pulled out from the table to be used, all of the legs should remain on your dining room area rug, which means your rug needs to be big enough to accommodate a space larger than the footprint of your table with the chairs pushed in. A good rule for this is to seek out an area rug for your dining room that is at least four feet wider and longer than the footprint of your dining set.
