A Comprehensive Guide to Area Rugs  

When furnishing your home, the first things that you look for are the major appliances, such as the refrigerator and washing machine, and the most important items of furniture, such as chairs, beds, sofas, and a dining table. But the accessories in your home can be just as important. And one very overlooked but important accessory is the area rug.

First of all, exactly how do we define an “area rug”?

The strict definition of an area rug is a carpet or rug that covers part of the floor of a room (as opposed to a carpet, which generally covers the entire floor space). 

So why would you need an area rug?

Area rugs are used in various rooms around the house, and they have different usages and forms. Here are some examples:

  • In the bedroom, you may want an extra layer of comfort next to the bed so that your feet touch a surface that is softer than the regular carpet when you get up in the morning. For this purpose, you may choose something with a heavy, shag pile, such as wool flokati rugs
