An area rug is often the most important and significant item in your space. It grounds the room and creates the canvas to which everything will be added on. It is important that you consider the size of the area rug as it can make or break the way the room looks and feels. Too small of a rug can make your space feel empty while too large will feel like everything is floating and not grounded. While I cant tell you the exact size of rug that you should get because each space is so different I want to provide you with some tips and rules to guide you in the right direction.
