The size of the area rug is important to ensure that you cover the space that you are wanting to cover. You may not want to cover the entire room but just have a square area rug defining a conversation area. It is a matter of personal preference whether the furniture is on or off the area rug carpet. Remember to select an area rug carpet that fits your personal style and suits your needs. Keep in mind the amount of traffic in the room and the atmosphere that you are wanting to create for your home. Whether you want a light colored rug to keep the room light and airy or deeper colors to make it cozy the choice is yours.
If no samples are readily available take several photos in different light conditions with you. This will help give you an idea of the color combinations that will work while you shop for that perfect area rug. If you have a sample of the hardwood floor take a piece with you. Because the rug will be placed on the wood floor it's a great way to see what the effect is. Be sure it has some of the warm or cool elements in the rug to accent the wood floor depending on the look you are going for. The style of rug will play a important roll in the finished look of the room. Look at the room and the type of decor you have. Rooms with antiques will beg for a Oriental rug but be careful because they may be to busy for the room. You will find that braided rugs work well for a traditional modern looking room.
