between to fit exactly what type of décor you want. For many people, rugs are an easy way to add a decorative look to a room. By keeping furniture in a neutral palette, you can easily add art, accent pillows and rugs in all different colors and patterns to bring your personality into your home. Or if you want to keep an overall neutral and solid tone to a room, there are plenty of area rugs to choose from that are classic and fashionable.
Rugs come in many sizes, so always measure the area you want to place your new rug before making the purchase. The size plays a big part in how a rug will look in the room — you don’t want it too look too big or small. A rule of thumb is to look for one that is two feet shorter than the smallest wall in that room, so that the rug does not appear overwhelming and crammed in. In a dining room, you want the rug to extend at least 18 inches past the edge of your table so that your chairs will stay in the designated space. A hallway rug looks best when there are six inches between the edge of the rug and wall on all sides. But these are just guidelines — only you can decide what is best for your home and the look you will love.
Rugs are an investment — while they can be very expensive, it is an item that you will keep for many years. A rug is one of those items that you get what you paid for — cheaper rugs are usually made of materials that cannot withstand constant use and will show their age more quickly that is higher quality. So decide on a style, size and budget for your rug and browse the numerous choices offered in The Rugs Store by Home Gallery Stores.
