Once you've decided to move your floor from wall to wall to hardwood, you may need a rug with areas that will add color, warmth, and protection to your new floor. A rug is more than just a floor, it's a work of art and the right rug can transform your room from beautiful to extraordinary.
First, you need to determine the size of the rug you need i.e 5×8 carpet in living room will be perfect. If you want to cover most of the room, a good rule of thumb is 2 feet from all walls. That way, the rug won't be under much of the furniture and you will still be able to see some of the beautiful floors.

Most of the carpets are available in common sizes 2×4, 3×5, 4×6, 5×7, 5×8, 6×8, 6×9, 7×10, 8×11, 9×12, 10×13, 12×14. Runners are typically 30 inches wide and vary in length. Always measure the space before buying a rug to make sure it fits into the room.
Another important factor when choosing a rug is its thickness. If the carpet is too thick, you may not be able to open the bedroom or wardrobe door. Before shopping, measure the distance between the floor and the bottom of the door.
The next step is to determine which type of rug is best for each room in your home. Wool is always the best choice, but there are several types of wool rugs to choose from.
