Here we provide a general guide of interior design that you may find useful when it comes to choosing your rug.

The size of a rug differs with the room it is going to be laid

In a dining room a rug should span about 90 cm wider on all sides of a dining table to allow chairs to pull out easily without catching the rug sides. Plain low pile and natural colour rugs are typical however bright colour rugs may add an edge to funky and contemporary dining rooms.

In a living Room there are different approaches to size: a large rug should act as a connector between furniture and it is recommended to choose a size where the front legs sit on the rug while others are off. This approach really does work in most situations; the rug connects the various furniture pieces together while extending far enough into the room to create a sense of good proportion. 

Both traditional and modern designs can be used depend on the furniture and style of the room. If a modern design is used better to avoid bold pattern rugs instead using symmetrical designs or plain colour rugs. 

Now if you would like to buy just a small rug it is better to buy a rug with a bold pattern that introduces a new feature into the room. In this case it is better to have none of the furniture touching the rug. The traditional rules on Spanning a rug is to leave a gap of about 40 cm between walls and the rug in a larger room and a gap of 15 cm in smaller rooms.

Colour and design are important

Rugs have been around for centuries. If you want to bring an essence of history to your home then buy a traditional design rug. 

If you are planning to add some coziness to your room then a plain colour rug is just what you need. A shady colour rug adds the warmness to a lightly coloured space. 

Modern rugs are beautiful and versatile and are designed to compliment a wide variety of decorating schemes. As such the modern rugs make great accent and conversation pieces and are a great way to brighten up any space. A modern rug works well with a modern contemporary and clean decorating scheme.
