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.

Know what room you want it to be positioned so as to know a rug's function; whether it stands as a mere floor covering or a wall décor. Pondering on a rug's function will allow you to consider the material of the rug. For rooms with heavy foot traffic like living rooms and dining areas choose a rug that is made with fibers that are resilient to dirt and stains; specifically natural fibers like wool. If you wish to use an area rug as a wall décor (like tapestries) choose rugs made of natural silk; since silk tends to last better than other natural materials because of its delicate and lustrous quality.

So buy a huge area rug that compliments the carpet already on the floor leaving just the outer edge that's less worn exposed. You'll be amazed at how different your room looks. Area rugs are also a good way to hide a damaged or stained area of carpet.

Oriental carpets were originally woven and tufted by hand to cover the ground or floors in tents and buildings with earth or stone floors. They added warmth and color to the lives of those living in these dwellings. European castles and lesser homes often had earth or stone floors covered with things like rushes or straw and when travellers brought back rugs from the East those who could afford them bought these carpets to enhance their homes as well. Settlers coming to America brought rugs with them or the knowledge to make them. Soft woven or tufted flooring covers are used around the world to add comfort color and style to homes and commercial spaces.
