When it Comes to Area Rugs,
Make sure that the area rug you select is large enough to fit under the main pieces of furniture. It can appear awkward when, say in a seating arrangement, some of the chairs are on the rug while others are not. Similarly, it can create uncomfortable imbalances when either the front or back legs are not on the rug. Measuring the area as well as considering your furniture arrangements before buying a rug is always a smart idea.
