There are so many wonderful choices! Colors and designs run the gamut from serene and subdued to spunky and bright. But don't be confused about your selection. Here are a few HGTV® HOME guidelines to help:
Color and design: If you want to make a bold, contemporary statement, consider a large floral pattern or dazzling geometric that becomes the room’s main focal point. To add warmth, texture, and quiet style, try a rug with more subdued colors or a classic pattern in subtle shades.
Tips for choosing: Several tips should help you select the best rug for various rooms.
Living areas: A rug should be large enough to hold seating groups and small enough that the floor forms a contrasting frame around it.
Dining areas: Choose a rug large enough to accommodate chairs when they're pushed away from the table.
Foyers: The rug should cover a large portion of the area, allowing a generous 18- to 24-inch border of floor to frame it.
