  1. Anchor a room. Rugs draw interest and provide a definitive visual weight to a room.  They anchor the room in a way that brings form to a furniture arrangement.  Make sure the rug is of the same scale as the furniture layout.  Don’t place a tiny area rug in a room of substantial size.

  1. Inspires your room design. An area rug can be the starting point to your room design.  Choose colors or patterns in a rug and repeat them in the furnishings and accessories.  You may see a rug that has wonderful colors or a unique design but you haven’t decided where to go with your decorating.  Let the rug inspire you.

  1. Define an area in an open concept home. Area rugs are a wonderful tool in the open concept home.  They can easily define a seating area or divide particular spaces in a home.  In the open concept home, an area rug underneath the dining room table and one in the living area instantly transforms those spaces for their individual uses.
