Typical Rooms for Area Rugs

A great place for a natural area rug is in a nursery.  In this room, a natural are rug can truly add to the overall décor.  While doing that, it can also ease the tired feet of a parent walking and rocking baby to sleep while also providing a soft place on the floor for baby to play.  If you have hard floors in the nursery, go with a larger rug and a rug pad to both keep crawling babies safe and to insulate he room from echoes an excessive noise.

In the family or living room, it is critical to choose an area rug based on the amount of foot traffic these rooms get.  The more durable the natural area rug is, the better.

When it comes to your dining room, having a natural area rug underneath the table will look great.  However, the dining room is one room where choosing the perfect area rug is essential.  Look for natural area rugs that are repellent to stains, easy to clean and that have darker patterns or colors.

Before you go out and just buy the first natural area rug you find, take a minute to look at the room it will be going in.  What type of foot traffic does the room get?  What is the size of the room and what type of décor is showcased in it?  What colors in a natural area rug would complement these colors and what size should the rug be?  Additionally, what type of fiber should your natural area rug be made from?
