Choosing the Right Rug - Home & Family

How to Choose the Right Size Rug

Paige Hemmis is back to talk about how to choose the right size rug for your rooms. First things first, Paige wants you to think of your rug as a frame, because its purpose is to frame your room. Always go bigger when it comes to choosing the rug. When it comes to adding a rug to your bedroom, remember you can start it at the wall or at the front of your bedside table. If you are adding a rug to your living room, make sure you take notice that it is a high-traffic area, so a solid color, medium pile dirt will help hide any dirt.
