First of all, a well-placed area rug can do wonders for any space. It can instantly add warmth and comfort across cold, hard flooring, helping define a space and make it feel more intimate. It can even help make a space look larger than it is. Area rugs make lovely complements to any home décor, allowing you to personalize any room and add some flair where it’s often needed.

And, wall-to-wall carpeting should not go overlooked. Carpeting is and has always been one of the best ways to instantly warm a room. The right soft, comfortable carpeting underfoot can instantly transform not only the way a room looks but how it feels and how it is experienced. It is also great at holding in warmth literally; insulating the floor to help keep the warm air in and the cold air out.

But, how does one know what size rug to choose for their unique home? Deciding what size rug or what type of carpet is best for a space can be hard since there are many “rules” and just as many opposing opinions on it. For example, one popular rule is that the rug should be large enough to slide under the front legs of sofas and chairs in a seating arrangement. However, some say that all legs of the furniture should be able to fit on the rug.

One way to go about it is to determine the furniture placement before selecting what size rug to use. That way, you will be able to envision the room and decide what creates a more balanced, comforting feel.
