Benefits of Area Rugs

Offered up in a vast universe of shapes, colors, textures, and dimensions, area rugs are truly for everyone. There are classical styles, as well as the latest trends. Whether you prefer a wild pattern or something more subtle, area rugs are a great way to express yourself.


Area Rug Guidelines

A few things to bear in mind as you shop for area rugs: we recommend room-sized rugs are selected to leave a border of 6” to 24” on all sides. Your dining room rug should measure at least 4’ longer and wider than your table, so your chairs don’t hit the floor. Consider mixing and matching your patterns and colors for a more striking visual effect. Also remember: it’s always great to think outside the box, literally, so consider hexagon, oval, and round shapes in addition to traditional squares and rectangles.


Size Guidelines:


Room size rugs should leave a border of 6” to 24” on all sides.


Dining room rugs should measure at least 4’ longer and wider than the dining room table, so chairs will not fall off the rug when pushed back from the table.


Hallway rugs should be approximately 4” to 6” narrower and 6” to 24” shorter than the hallway.


Other area rugs will vary in size according to need.



Design Guidelines:


Try using different patterns that use some common colors in the same room for a coordinated look that is also fresh.


When mixing patterns use simple with complex, floral with geometric, small with large.


Don’t get boxed in by traditional rectangular or square rugs. Consider oval and round shapes as a way to inject new life in a room.
