How to Choose the Right Rug?

Have you ever wondered how to choose the right size area rug for your living/family room?  The most important locations for rugs are the rooms where you spend the most time.  They will receive the greatest impact and benefits.  The one thing to keep in mind is that the rug should be large enough to allow the front legs of all the furniture in the grouping to rest on it.  This way the colors visually flow from the furniture down to the rug and back to the furniture again.  When in doubt it is safer to go larger with a rug especially in a large room or one with high ceilings.  You can even use multiple rugs to define separate sitting areas in a great room.
