Keep in mind that the rug should look gracious but not awkwardly large. Pick something that is two to three feet smaller than the size of the room in order to create an illusion of balance and space.

2.      Balance: Your rug should blend with the décor of your home and should create a visual relief. It should not look rushed or as if you have gone overboard. The trick is to match the colors and patterns with ease and to avoid large, animated patterns for the bedrooms rugs. Consider a solid rug for a room which has bold wallpapers. A monochrome rug will increase the elegance of the space and will help create a serene ambiance for the room. You can pick a color that has the same shade within the same room.

3.      Size: Depending on the space where you want to lay the rug, you need to consider the size. If you want to lay it below the coffee table, consider the size of the coffee table and ensure that the rug is slightly bigger in size. If you want to lay it under the dining table, ensure that it is big enough for the diners to move their chairs comfortably.
