How large should my rug be?

People often end up purchasing a rug too large for their room.  Large rugs are beautiful, warm and adds a definite charm to the room, but the floor also should act like a picture frame. It should draw your eye to the rug. In fact, having several rugs in one room can help to create and delineate smaller areas inside a large room. This works fantastically in open concept rooms where you can have an office, living area and dining room all in one. All rugs can be of the same style, region, color etc., or change it up to create a statement for each area. When it’s all said and done, rugs add an appeal warmth and character unmatched by any other room decor item.
