Bedroom

Add some extra softness and style to your bedroom with an area rug. Start by choosing a rug to suit your style and the rug layout that works best for your space. You can run a large area rug under the foot of the bed, frame the bed with runners or scatter smaller rugs on each side of the bed. For a change of pace consider placing rugs at an angle under the bed for some added visual interest.

Dining Room

Add elegance and style to your dining room with a great area rug. First, make sure the rug is large enough for all chairs to remain on the rug even when pulled out. Most dining rooms need at least an 8 foot wide rug. A quick way to measure is to add at least 3 to 4 feet to the length and width of your table. Be as creative and bold as you’d like. Patterned rugs look great in dining rooms and serve as a focal point.

Living Room

Add personality and style to your living room with an area rug. There really is no right or wrong when it comes down to preference. You can choose a rug that sits within the furniture, one that runs half way under the furniture or a rug that is large enough to extend beyond all of the furniture including the side tables. Whatever size you choose, make sure you allow some space for the flooring to show underneath.
