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.
Color-wise rugs that are placed on receiving areas should have a light and soft shade; thus giving the room a warm and cozy feel. Should you place rugs under dark-colored furniture that you intend to make the center of attraction make sure you select lighter toned rugs and simpler designs to highlight the fixtures. This also works with hardwood floors of darker shades. Nonetheless if you plan to set an area rug as the focal point of the room select rugs with intense colors and intricate designs; provided that the rooms motif is simple and wouldn't contrast with the rug's pattern.
